Advantage II Flea Treatment for Small Dogs, 3-10 lbs, 4 treatments.
Advantage II is a monthly flea preventative for dogs and cats that offers comprehensive flea protection by killing adult fleas, larvae, and eggs. Plus, it kills fleas through contact, which means fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Advantage II also treats, prevents, and controls lice on dogs. Advantage II does not kill ticks, so we recommend using the along with Advantage II (dogs only). Advantage II for small cats 5-9 lbs can also be used for ferrets weighing 1 lb or over and 10 weeks of age or older.Hi,
I’ve been using Advantage for Dogs on cats for many years by purchasing the Dogs derivative and splitting it into smaller doses appropriate for my cat’s weight. This seemed to be a common practice with vets as the Active Ingredients of the Dogs and Cats derivatives were identical. When Advantage II came out, I continued with the practice of using the Dog product on Cats only adjusting the dosage. However, after a while, Bayer added a “Do not use on Cats” warning on the packaging of Advantage II for Dogs. I can understand why Bayer would put such a warning from a marketing point of view. However, as the non-active ingredients are not listed on the packaging of either product, I’m not sure whether there might be another reason.
I was wondering if you had any insight on this question of using Advantage II for Dogs on Cats.
I look forward to hearing from you, O.The first active ingredient is imidacloprid, which acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death. Within 12 hours of application on cats and dogs, 98-100 percent of fleas are dead. Advantage II Small Cat kills the existing fleas on ferrets within 24 hours. The second active ingredient, pyriproxyfen, is an insect growth regulator. Once a female flea lays her eggs, pyriproxyfen works to prevent the eggs from hatching, ending the flea life cycle. Also, the active ingredient in Advantage II kills through contact, which means that fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Reinfesting fleas are killed with protection against further flea infestation lasting for up to 4 weeks. Pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to emerge for 6 weeks or longer depending upon the climactic conditions.saves me a small fortune diing it this way...for you it probably woudlnt be worth it (as youd have to invest in syrninges and a glass vial to store the extra and for 2 smaller dogs....) but for me with the 3 dogs and 2 cats on the advantage, it worked out ALOT cheaper to buy the largest size (4ml) doer gets 1 tube, ruby gets 1ml, jasper and the cats all get a little under 1/2ml so which tends to leave me with just over 1ml from the 4ml large tube left, that gose into an amber glass vial for next time.
