What is Advantage for dogs? How does it benefit dogs?

Advantage is a monthly topical application for the treatment and prevention of fleas and lice on dogs. It contains an active ingredient called imidacloprid, which kills fleas on contact and prevents future infestations. Advantage is also effective against chewing lice and can help to control flea allergy dermatitis.

One of the main benefits of using Advantage is that it provides quick relief from fleas, which can be a major annoyance for both dogs and their owners. It is also easy to use and does not require the use of oral medications or collars. Advantage is generally safe and well-tolerated by dogs.

How does Advantage flea treatment for dogs work?

Advantage flea treatment for dogs is a topical medication that is used to kill fleas and prevent their infestations. The active ingredient in Advantage is imidacloprid, which works by binding to certain receptors in the flea's nervous system, which leads to hyperexcitation and paralysis of the flea. The flea is then unable to feed or reproduce and dies within a few hours of coming into contact with the medication.

Advantage is applied topically to the skin between the shoulder blades of your dog, where it spreads throughout the dog's skin and hair follicles, providing protection against fleas for up to 30 days. The medication is waterproof, so it remains effective even after swimming or bathing.

It is important to follow the instructions provided with Advantage and to use the appropriate dosage for your dog's size and weight. You should also avoid applying the medication to broken or irritated skin, and keep your dog away from other pets or children until the medication has dried.

How long does it take for advantage to work on dogs?

After applying Advantage flea treatment to your dog, it typically starts working within 12 hours to kill fleas. However, the medication may take up to 24 hours to completely eradicate all fleas on your dog. Additionally, Advantage provides ongoing protection against fleas for up to 30 days after application. It is important to note that if your dog already has a severe flea infestation, it may take several applications of Advantage or other flea treatments to completely eliminate the fleas.
