How to use Advantage
Advantage (Imidacloprid) is indicated for the prevention and treatment of fleas in dogs, small cats and kittens. Its mechanism of action is functioning as an agonist of certain receptors in the motor neurons of the insects. As a result of this, it triggers excessive stimulation of the insects` nerves, which eventually paralyzes and kills them. Upon application, it attaches to the surface of the animal`s skin and the fleas absorb it without needing to bite the animal.
Treating dogs or cats for flea infestations is important, as the bites can cause pain and severe itching, as well as other health risks (flee allergy dermatitis). Use of a topical insecticide such as this one helps to protect animals against these symptoms. This particular product is considered especially effective, as it starts to work rapidly, and can kill fleas and flea larvae within 20 minutes due to the fleas absorbing it through the intersegmental membranes. Treatment helps to break the life cycle of the fleas. It also helps protect your pet from getting fleas from other animals.
Listen carefully to the instructions of the veterinarian before using Advantage (Imidacloprid) on your pet. Each tube contains 0.4ml of the insecticide, which is enough for a single application. One formula is available which is suitable for use in cats, and another formula is suitable for dogs. Pet owners are normally told to apply all of the solution contained in one tube to the back of the animal`s head. Pull its hair apart before squeezing the liquid out onto its skin. Veterinarians generally recommend reapplying it once every 4 weeks, however, this may vary depending on individual factors. Therefore, it is important to follow all instructions given by the veterinarian.
