Advantage® Treatment Spray for Cats contains a combination of ingredients that stops the flea life cycle and kills other listed insects.

The first active ingredient is Nylar®, an insect growth regulator which inhibits development of the immature stages of the flea for 100 days, preventing them from reaching the adult stage. Nylar® is similar to insect growth hormones that occur naturally in insects. The second active ingredient is the botanical insecticide, Pyrethrins, which provides effective knock-down and quick-kill of insects upon direct contact. The third active ingredient enhances the killing activity of Pyrethrins.

The combination of ingredients in Advantage® Treatment Spray for Cats kills adult fleas, and hatching fleas and flea eggs for 100 days before they grow up to bite. Nylar® continues to kill hatching fleas and flea eggs for 100 days by preventing their development into the adult biting stage. Advantage® Treatment Spray for Cats can also be used to kill fleas hidden in carpets, rugs, draperies, upholstery, pet bedding, floor cracks, and cabinets. Occasionally adult fleas may be present in treated areas when reintroduced from infested animals.

As part of a complete flea control program, treat pets and indoor areas where animals frequent using EPA registered outdoor spray and flea and tick spray.

This product may be applied as a direct, contact spray to kill fleas, ticks, and other listed insect pests on premises.

FOR CATS: Cover animal’s eyes with a hand. Do not spray directly on mouth, nose, or eyes. Spray head, ears, and chest until damp. With fingertips, rub into face and around mouth, nose, and eyes.

For best penetration of spray to skin and on heavy-coated animals, direct spray against the natural lay of the hair, spraying the ruffled hair directly behind the hand.

Put some spray on the finger and gently rub around eyes, nose, and mouth area. Keep animal wrapped for 5 to 10 minutes. Fleas may then be removed from the coat by picking or combing. For best results, all cats should be treated with a similar flea control product such as Advantage® Treatment Spray for Cats to prevent reinfestation. Do not spray directly on kittens. Avoid contact with genitalia. Repeat as required, but not more often than once every 14 days (2 weeks).
