Advantage® Treatment Spray for Dogs 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 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 Dogs kills adult fleas and hatching fleas, and flea eggs before they grow up to bite.
As part of a complete flea control program, treat pets and indoor areas using EPA registered Advantage® Household Spot & Crevice Spray indoor flea and tick spray; treat outdoor areas where animals frequent using EPA registered Advantage® Yard & Premise Spray outdoor flea and tick spray.
