Not all products work the same. Elanco’s Advantage®II protect your dog from parasite bites by killing parasites through contact, no biting required. What does this mean?

It's also safe for puppies as young as 8 weeks old so there is no better time to start protecting your loved one.

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!

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?
Advantix® 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.
