Description

Why Worry about fleas?

Fleas can cause more than just irritation in dogs; they can lead to flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) or even anaemia (if it’s a severe infestation). Some pets develop allergies to flea saliva, which means even a few bites can lead to severe itching and sore skin infected fleas can also transmit tapeworm if swallowed during grooming. All very nasty stuff.

What’s more, fleas don’t just bite your furry friend, they bite humans too and can infest your home causing irritation to you and your family. Did you know it can take months to get rid of a infestation in your home as only 5% of fleas lice on tour pet, the other 95% are in your home environment as eggs, larvae and pupae.

One application of advantage, the vet-recommended flea treatment, with its fuss-free pipette application gets to work within one day and remains effective for up to four weeks. Advantage is able to kill fleas through contact, no biting required. *

Advantage Spot On Flea Control

Doglady

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Hi, I’ve just been to buy some ‘Advantage Spot On Flea Control’ for one of my dog.

I’ve weighed her and she’s 10.2 kg

Should I get the 4 – 10kg Spot On
or the 10 – 25kg ?


Thanks, (O:

  • VioVet Staff

If your dog is over 10kg, even if only by 0.2kg, then you will need the 10-25kg dose as per the datasheet. Underdosing and using the 4-10kg pipette can lead to lack of efficacy and so risk it not killing all fleas effectively. The product has been tested and is very safe for use in the weight ranges suggested.

Do fleas have to bite?

Vivienne Gould

  • VioVet customer since 2013

Does Advantage kill fleas on contact with the dog or do they have to bite to be killed?

What tick treatment should/can be used with Advantage or would it be better to use Advantix?

  • VioVet Staff

Fleas do not need to bite to be killed by a spot on product like this. However it does not 100% guarantee fleas won't bite, a few may still be alive and able to do this. It is recommended to use Advantix if seeking tick coverage also as this contains the same flea killing ingredient as Advantage but in combo with a tick preventative.
If you are looking for an over the counter flea/tick repellant with the same ingredient as Advantage then I advise Seresto collars.

Worked on tick, should it work for mites?

Sam S

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Suffolk, United Kingdom

Hi, I use this for my dog and I believe it’s effective on fleas and ticks, I started to use a different brand a while ago for some unknown idiotic reason and much to my regret. In the first few months I knew that is was barely effective on fleas. The majority of the time he is flea-less even if the cat was to have any they don’t last long enough to be seen(when I’ve used advantage). So I stopped using itch on him and back to Advantage.

Around the 3rd/4th week of no treatment between changing over my dog got a tick. (First and only tick ever, *Touches wood*) I applied Advantage, like I would before and the first few days of applying Advantage we were back to no fleas and the tick had died and soon dropped, maybe took a week and half max.

Now I’m wondering if this works for mites? I’ve used Thornit power a couple of times recently, it seems to be make him more comfortable and sleepy 😂. My dog has days where he will “Itch” or shake his ears a fair bit, not always aggressively, sometimes he will be gently moving his head while his paw (maybe nail) is rubbing his ear, eyes closed and looks like he’s enjoying it 😂😫😫.
Most of the time when he’s itching I’ll try distract him to get him to stop then rub/massage his ear gently and have a look to see if there’s anything noticeable, ( once or twice there’s been some wax which came away using ear cleaner by Paw Origins). This seems like it keeps on top of the problem and he’s more comfortable however I feel there’s no major progress. (Unless he’s pulling my leg and doing it for even more attention 😂🤦🏼‍♂️)

Advantage is only licensed against fleas and lice. The active ingredient within has no known effects on ticks or mites. It may have been that the tick on your dog naturally fell over, they will detach from your dog when they've had a full meal.
I recommend using a spot on like Frontline Plus or a collar like Seresto if wanting to cover ticks as well as fleas. Unfortunately there are no over the counter products that protect against mites. You can purchase prescription products from us that will do this but you need a written prescription from your vet first.

If your dog has ear issues then I recommend reading our blog on this, link provided below:

Tablets

Do I have to get worming tabs with advantage flee pippets.

  • VioVet Staff

Advantage will prevent/treat fleas and lice. It will not worm your dog, I would advise using a product such as TermaWorm alongside Advantage every 3 months.

Do this cover the treatment for scabies biting lice and it’s prevention?

  • VioVet Staff

Hello,

Thank you for getting in touch.

This product does cover for fleas and biting lice. It does not cover for scabies and you would need to talk to your vet regarding this.
