Description

Advantage Multi for Cats is a once a month topical application that contains a combination of the insecticide (imidacloprid) and the parasiticide (moxidectin). It is used for the prevention of heartworm and the treatment and control of fleas infestations, roundworms, hookworms and ear mites.

Advantage Multi requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Key Benefits

  • Prevents heartworms, roundworms, hookworms in dogs and cats as well as whipworms in dogs and ear mites in cats
  • Easy, once a month, application

How It Works

The active ingredient moxidectin is used for the prevention and control of heartworms and intestinal worms by disrupting nerve transmission resulting in the paralysis and death of the parasite. The active ingredient imidacloprid, acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death.

Cautions

Individual sensitivities, while rare, may occur after using any pesticide product for pets. If signs persist, or become more severe, consult a veterinarian immediately.

I have raised 4 mature cats using this product and my cats never fuss when I put this on their head. Both the cats and I are happy knowing they won't be bothered with fleas and are protected from other parasites who would like to make their home in them. I never see fleas or flea dirt in my home. This is a wonderful product.
Merchant Response:Advantage Multi is just about as strong of protection can get. Carol, and your for cats take care in beautiful Roseville.

I am so pleased with Entirley pets RX. They let me know when I was running low. Filled in my vets phone number and address and they contacted the vet, got a refill and immediately shipped it to me. So easy and convenient. The price was so much better on line than any RX's around the Myrtle Beach area. I will continue to order my pet needs from Entirely Pets. Thank you. June Lewis
