4. Hold tube in an upright position facing away from you and your cat’s face and eyes. Pull cap off tube.
5. Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
6. Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.
7. Part the hair on the neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin. Do not get this product in your cat’s eyes, or allow your cat to ingest this product. The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occur for a short time if the cat licks the product immediately after treatment. Treatment at the base of the skull will minimize the opportunity for the cat to lick the product. Do not allow the product to run off.
8. Discard empty tube as described in the Storage and Disposal section.
9. Under normal conditions the product is effective for a month. However, in case of severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than four (4) weeks. On kittens, do not re-treat more often than once every fourteen (14) days, not to exceed 2 bi-weekly treatments. On small and large cats, do not retreat more often than once every seven (7) days, not to exceed 4 weekly treatments. After flea control is attained, return to a monthly treatment schedule.
The successive feeding activity of fleas on cats frequently elicits a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) or flea bite hypersensitivity. Treatment of cats with Advantage II for cats kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.
Advantage II for cats kills the existing fleas on cats within 12 hours. Reinfesting fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further flea infestation lasting for up to four (4) weeks.
Pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to emerge for six (6) weeks or longer depending upon the climatic conditions.
Advantage II for cats provides multi-stage flea control effectively breaking flea life-cycle stages for lasting control of flea populations.
Advantage II for cats kills adult fleas on cats quickly, within 12 hours, inhibits the development
of immature flea life stages and prevents them from reaching the biting adult stage.
Advantage II for cats is waterproof after 24 hours and remains effective following a shampoo treatment or after exposure to rain or sunlight.
Apply monthly treatments for optimal control and prevention of fleas.
To successfully prevent and control fleas, all cats must be treated with their own dose of Advantage II for cats.
Apply according to label instructions, ensuring that the product is applied to the skin, not on top of the fur.
If your cat wears a decorative collar, it may be helpful to remove the collar before application so it doesn’t absorb the product.
Remember, your cat needs to be dry at the time Advantage II for cats is applied and remains dry 24 hours after application.
Even indoor cats need protection against fleas because you or other pets in the household may bring fleas into the home. Fleas in your cat’s environment can re-infest your cat. If you have a flea infestation, consider treating your home and yard with appropriate premise products to protect against fleas.
