Product Detail: Advantage Flea Control

Advantage For Dogs And Cats

Advantage is a spot-on flea control product registered for use in dogs, cats, rabbit and ferrets. It kills fleas and flea larvae in the environment on contact and also treats and prevents lice on these animals.

The effectiveness of Advantage is not diminished by contact with water so swimming, bathing and contact with rain is acceptable.

All in contact dogs and cats should be treated with Advantage to ensure maximal effectiveness of the product. However, any unweaned puppies or kittens do not need to be treated prior to weaning as protection is conferred to them by their treated mother. Treatment needs to begin at weaning, or in the case of orphaned or abandoned puppies or kittens, treatment can start at any age.

Advantage is safe to use on pregnant and lactating animals.

Advantage is manufactured by Bayer Australia Ltd.

How to Use Advantage Flea Control

Advantage is a spot-on product and is applied externally to the animal in a manner according to its weight.

Cats: open the appropriate sized tube, part the hair to skin level behind the neck and apply the entire contents to this area.

Dogs less than 25kg: open the appropriate sized tube and apply the entire contents to the skin between the shoulder blades by parting the hair to skin level at this point and squeezing the tube.

Dogs 25-50kg: use 1 tube from blue pack divided and applied at skin level between the shoulder blades, between the hips, and at one point in between.

Dogs more than 50kg: use 2 tubes from blue pack divided and applied at skin level between the shoulder blades, between the hips, and at one point in between.

Advantage Flea Control Pack Sizes

Advantage is available in several sizes to ensure accurate dosing of dogs and cats of all sizes.

Cats: There are 2 different sizes for treatment of cats.

  1. For cats less than 4kg the orange box is used.
  2. For cats over 4kg the purple box is used.

Dogs: Due to the vast differences in dog weights, Advantage is available in 4 different sizes for dogs.

  1. Dogs under 4kg - green pack
  2. Dogs 4-10kg - aqua pack
  3. Dogs 10-25kg - red pack
  4. Dogs over 25kg - blue pack (dogs over 50kg require 2 blue tubes at each dosing).

Owners should be aware of changes in their pet's weight, especially in growing animals to ensure they continue to dose their animal correctly.

Tips and Tricks for Giving Advantage Flea Control

Spot-on treatments such as Advantage are usually well tolerated by animals as their application is minimally invasive. However, in some animals techniques which can assist in the rapid and effective application of the product include:

Advantage Active Ingredients

Advantage is a clear liquid containing the active ingredient imidacloprid at 100g/L. This disrupts the normal nerve transmission in fleas and lice, causing their death.

Advantage Flea Control Contraindications and Warnings

Should not be used on animals other than those which the product is registered for and only in the manner specified by the manufacturer.

Harmful if inhaled or swallowed.

Irritating to eyes.

If poisoning occurs, call the poisons information centre.

Cured Bobby's flea allergy dermatitis
Written by Brombo
Dec 11, 2014

I used Frontline for years and my westie-poodle cross was constantly troubled by dermatitis around his tail. I treated it with creams and shampoos with limited success. Changed to Advantage just to see what happened about 6 months ago and the dermatitis disappeared within a couple of weeks and has now gone completely. He is now on monthly applications of Advantage and he remains free of this annoying condition. Of course, I also wrote the review below but I meant to rate Advantage 5 stars, not 1.

I think the problem is that while Frontline does kill fleas it does not kill them quickly enough to prevent the flea allergy cycle.

Morning Treatment

We use the Advantage in the morning when the cats go outside. We reckon it's better than the evening, when they are far more likely to lick each other.

Very pleased with this product

Advantage gave our cats instant relief from fleas. Stopped scratching 5 minutes after applying. Other flea treatment had lost its effect. Cats seemed less agitated when this product was applied. Liked the tube rather than the "dropper" type applicator as in other products.

Works very good.

This advantage works very well like it says and very easy to put on puppy and mailing was fast. Very pleased

I won't tell a lie

My boys hardly rejoice in having their flea treatment administered. I may as well take to them with an meat axe, considering the way they react. However, the wonderfully prompt service given by Trixan, in helping the Boys' luddite of a Mother, easily order the Advantage and afford it by the lower than anywhere else price, make me a happier Mother and able to attend to my Boys' many needs - prompt service of meals, clean litter tray, throat tickles and smooches on command. Being a cat servant is a high pressure vocation and Trixan and Advantage relieve some of the pressure by great product and service.

After using this product for some years I find that my cats have not had a problem with fleas at all. Treatment is easy and non invasive and the cats are happy and healthy

Dear Trixan People, My owners have been giving my sister and I Advantage for Cats for over a year now and we are very happy kitties. We've used all the brands around and like Advantage the best! It starts working right away and it doesn't wash off when we have a bath. It's the best! Thank You Bayer! From Henry and Sofie XX
