The successive feeding activity of fleas on dogs frequently
elicits a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD)
or flea bite hypersensitivity. Treatment of dogs with Advantage II rapidly
kills fleas and reduces the incidence of this condition.
Advantage II kills existing fleas on dogs within 12 hours.
Reinfesting fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further
flea infestation lasting for four (4) weeks. Pre-existing pupae in the
environment may continue to emerge for six (6) weeks or longer depending upon
the climatic conditions.
Fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae in the dog's environment
are killed following contact with an Advantage II treated pet. Advantage II
provides multi-stage flea control effectively breaking all flea life-cycle
stages for quick and lasting control of flea populations.
Advantage II kills adult fleas quickly (within 12 hours),
inhibits the development of immature flea life stages and prevents them from
reaching the biting adult stage.
Advantage II kills chewing lice that infest dogs and
puppies, and prevents further infestations.
Advantage II is waterproof and remains effective following a
shampoo treatment, swimming or after exposure to rain or sunlight.
Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and
prevention of fleas.
