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. *

Can u use this product on a nursing bitch and one week old puppies

Hello Danielle,

Thank you for your question.

It is safe to apply to lactating females and doing this will treat the puppies or kittens as well as the adult, and can be used on dogs from 8 weeks old.

Hope that helps,

Does this product need a prescription?

  • Veterinary Advisor

No you do not need a prescription for Advantage but you do for Advantix.

When can I use an alternative?

Geraldine Sayers Cowper

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

Advantage has stopped working on my elderly cat (20yrs old). How soon can I use an alternative - I applied Advantagge 2 weeks ago and she still has fleas.

  • Veterinary Advisor

It should be safe to try an alternative now if it has been 2 weeks since she last had Advantage. However it is unlikely that the Advantage has stopped working but that you need to treat the house too with a spray such as Indorex. Fleas hide in carpets, curtains, furniture, pet bedding etc and then can jump back onto your cat. Even if your cat has been treated it will take around 24hrs before the fleas are killed.

Suitable for Guinea pigs?

Samantha Batty

Brought the Guinea pigs in for winter and I really don't want the cats to get fleas. Will this dosage be suitable for Guinea pigs?

  • Website Content Developer

Hello Samantha, t

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately this product is not suitable for use on guinea pigs as it is only licensed for use on dogs, cats or rabbits.

We would recommend checking out the Xeno 450 Spot-On Parasite & Flea Treatment to treat guinea pigs for fleas. Here is a link to the product page: https://www.viovet.co.uk/Xeno_450_Spot-On_Parasite_Flea_Treatment/c9683/?sct_t=1512049286&sct_q=xeno&sct_r=2

I hope that helps.

Puppy flea treatment

Tricia

I am looking for advantage puppy flea treatment for a twelve week old puppy weighing approximately 12 kilos do you sell it and for how much?

  • Veterinary Advisor

Advantage is safe to use on puppies from 8 weeks old. If your puppy is 12kg then you will need Advantage 250 spot-on.

Age of kitten vs weight

Jamie

I have kitten who is 8 1/2 weeks. Is it definitely safe to use on her or does she have to be at least over a certain weight. I only ask cause my older cat had treatment when he was 8 weeks from something else, which said from 8 weeks so gave it to him only for him to nearly die :( as one dose overdosed him, later found out they were for from 8 weeks but from a certain weight :(

  • Veterinary Advisor

There is nothing on the Advantage data sheet to say there is a minimum weight at which it can be used, just that kittens should be over 8 weeks old, so it should be fine. However, if you are concerned you could use Fiproclear Spray instead which is suitable for use on all sizes of dog and cat from 2 days old.

Fur mites

Chelsea

Will this help with fur mites on rabbit?

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Chelsea,

Thanks for your question. Advantage wont treat mites, I'm afraid. You could try Pharmaq Ivermectin for small animals (item no 149772).

Kind regards,

Bridget.
