Flea protection for cat
Why is it important to protect your cat?
As a cat owner, you know all too well the independent streak that many cats possess. One thing that they cannot do alone is protect themselves from disease. Elanco understands this and is dedicated to providing solutions to help protect your cat’s health so that you may enjoy its company for years to come.
What is Advantage® II for cats?
A monthly topical flea treatment that works through contact so fleas don’t have to bite to die.
Controls fleas (including all life stages) and helps to protect against Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD).
Available in three different sizes for kittens and cats.
Flea protection your pet deserves:
Kills fleas through contact, so they don’t have to bite your pet to die
Provides multi-stage flea control effectively breaking the flea life cycle.
Kills 98% - 100% of fleas on a pet within 12 hours of the first application and kills reinfesting fleas within 8 hours.
Bathing should be limited to once per treatment period with non-medicated dog shampoo.
How does it work?
Advantage® II is not absorbed internally when applied to the skin. It spreads in a thin layer and remains locked in the oil of the pet’s skin. Contact by the parasite with the treated hair coat and skin results in paralysis and death of fleas and lice.
Advantage® II not only kills adult fleas through contact, the product also contains the insect growth regulator pyriproxyfen which is distributed into the home on fur and skin shed by the dog and prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into the next stage of the flea life cycle, effectively killing them, too!
How does Advantage® II benefit my cat?

Proven Approved flea and lice control.

How to apply to your cat
Advantage® II comes in a pre-measured applicator tube appropriate for your dog’s weight. It easily spreads on the skin to provide full-body flea protection through contact.
Follow this easy steps :
Remove collar prior to application. Remove one applicator tube from the package.
Hold applicator tube upright and pull cap off.
Turn cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
Twist cap to break the seal, then remove cap from tube.
Starting at your cat’s shoulder blades, part the hair.
Apply high enough so your cat can’t reach it to lick it off. Do not rub the product into the skin: allow it to dry naturally.
Why choose Advantage® II?
Advantage® II is applied to your pet topically and kills through contact meaning fleas don’t have to bite your pet to die. Oral flea medications require fleas to bite before they are killed.
How often should I use Advantage® II?
Advantage® II should be applied monthly and may be used year-round for flea prevention.
My pet is strictly indoors. Should I still use Advantage® ll?
Yes. Fleas can be brought into the home by you or other pets without you even realizing it. Immature flea stages can remain dormant until conditions are appropriate to infest pets as adults. That’s why it is important to also protect indoor pets.
I only see fleas on one of my pets. ls it sufficient to just treat the infested pet?
No. All cats or dogs in the home should be treated, since the infested pet is likely to pass on fleas to other pets in the same environment.
At what age can I start using Advantage® II on my cat or dog?
Advantage® II is for use on dogs and puppies 7 weeks of age and older, or cats and kittens 8 weeks of age and older.
