What is Advantage II?
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 Preventic Tick Collar along with Advantage II (dogs only). For dogs (3 lbs or over and 7 weeks of age or older), Cats (2 lbs or over and 8 weeks of age or older)
- Kills fleas within 12 hours of application
- Kills all flea life stages including flea eggs and larvae to prevent infestation
- Treats, prevents, and controls lice infestations (dogs only)
- Safe and easy to apply
- Waterproof remains effective even if pet gets wet
How it Works?
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, 98-100 percent of fleas are dead. 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.
