Advocate Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Advocate Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative is an easy to apply monthly spot-on treatment available for dogs and cats. It has a wide spectrum of activity against numerous internal and external parasites in both dogs and cats, the spectrum varying somewhat between the two species.

Advocate for Dogs is used to treat and/or prevent fleas, heartworm, mites (demodex and sarcoptes), lice, hookworms, roundworms and whipworms. Advocate for Cats is used to treat and/or prevent fleas, heartworm, ear mites, hookworms and roundworms.

Advocate does not control tapeworms so an additional product should be used for this purpose if recommended by your veterinarian.

Advocate is manufactured by Bayer Animal Health Australia.

How to Use Advocate Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Advocate Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative should be applied topically to dogs and cats once a month on the same date each month.

The hair between the shoulder blades should be parted to expose the skin and the entire vial of liquid applied at this location. The liquid should not be rubbed in. Note: for dogs 25kg+, the product should be evenly applied to 3 points- between the shoulder blades, between the hips and at one point in between.

Animals should be dry at the time of application.

Advocate for dogs should not be used on cats and vice versa.

Tubes of liquid should only be used for the size of animal noted on the packet and the tube should not be divided between several animals.

Advocate for dogs can be used on puppies from 7 weeks of age.

Advocate for cats can be used on kittens from 9 weeks of age.

Advocate Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative Pack Sizes

Advocate Flea and Heartworm Preventative comes in several sizes, according to the size of the animal it is being used to treat. Several different pack sizes are available. Owners of growing animals should be aware of changes in their pet's weight between doses to ensure full coverage is gained.

Cats - Advocate comes in the following sizes for cats

Dogs - Advocate come in the following sizes for dogs

Owners should ensure that the correct pack is used for their animal and be aware of any weight changes in their animal during its growth phase to ensure they are fully covered by the treatment.

Tips and Tricks for Using Advocate Flea Control and Heartworm Preventative

Spot-on applications are generally well tolerated by dogs and cats but if difficulties arise with treatment there are several tricks to try. Having an assistant help with dosing can be useful. Another person can distract the animal with pats, treats and the like whilst the product is applied. Dosage can be incorporated into the grooming schedule for that day so the animal is unaware of the treatment. The product can be applied just prior to a walk in animals which tend to roll in the grass after such applications to ensure it remains in place.

To help ensure that each treatment is remembered, owners should mark the due dates on the calendar. The product should be applied on the same date each month and some owners find the 1st of the month an easy date to remember treatments.

This product, Advocate for preventing fleas and worms from attacking my cats, always works very effectively. It is easy to apply, especially if you start treatment when your kitty Kats are just fun little fur balls. My two cats, Merlin and sister Pixie have never had fleas or worms, so what else can I say? Advocate rules!

Advocate Flea and Worm Treatment

I have been using this product on my cat for years as I find it the most effective and reliable treatment for fleas and worms on the market. My cat has never had any fleas and as we have possums in the back yard as well I think this is remarkable as I have been told possums carry many fleas. The service I get from Trixan Pet is fantastic thankyou I put my order in one day and receive it the next day by post.
