The new and improved Advantage II now offers flea and lice protection for your dog. Flea and lice treatment with Advantage II gives your dog a safe solution that only needs to be applied once a month. Dogs and puppies older than 7 weeks and weighing under 10 lbs are fit for this flea and lice killing formula.
This formula will kill fleas completely by eliminating their eggs and larvae by using a variety of ingredients and compounds. It contains a fast-acting formula that kills fleas quickly and prevents them from returning.
Advantage II uses the compound pyriproxyfen to kill fleas and other insects by interfering with their maturity cycle. Targeting insects, pyriproxyfen does not affect mammals. Other flea killing properties like adulticidal, larvicidal, and ovicidal kill fleas and prevent them from emerging again. Imidacloprid paralyzes fleas so they are killed before biting your dog and also reduce the incidence of flea-related allergies.
Kills adult fleas within 12 hours and re-infesting fleas within 2 hours
Integrated flea control (IFC) disrupts flea life cycle with pyriproxyfen
Guaranteed US EPA approved
Application quick and easy with easy-squeeze tube
Each package of this long-lasting topical lasts for 4 or 6 months
How It Works
AdvantageŽ II for dogs combines two active ingredients:
Imidacloprid attacks the flea's nervous system - paralyzing and ultimately killing it.
Pyriproxyfen is an insect growth regulator (IGR) that kills flea eggs and larvae.
This combination plays a crucial role in treating and preventing infestations, because:
In an existing infestation, you might only be aware of the adult fleas, which only represent around 5% of the full infestation and are found on the pet.
Immature flea life stages which live in the pet's environment consist of around 95% of the infestation and can be almost invisible to the naked eye.
Using scissorcs, cut the pouch across the top and remove tube.
How to Apply
Remove one applicator tube from the package. See "How to Open" section.
Hold applicator tube in an upright position facing away from you and your dog's face and eyes. Pull cap off tube.
Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.
For dogs 20 lbs and under: The dog should be standing for easy application. Part the hair on the dog's back, between the shoulder blades, until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin. Do not get this product in your dog's eyes or allow your dog to ingest this product. Do not allow the product to run off.
For dogs over 20 lbs: The dogs should be standing for easy application. Apply the entire contents of the tube evenly to three or four spots on the top of the back from the shoulder to the base of the tail. At each spot, part the hair until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and gently squeeze to expel a portion of the solution on the skin. Do not apply an excessive amount of solution at any one spot that could cause some of the solution to run off the side of the dog. Do not get this product in your dog's eyes or allow your dog to ingest this product.
Discard the empty tube as described in the Storage and Disposal section.
