How does Advantage flea treatment work?

Unlike some other treatments available such as oral tablets, Advantage Spot-On flea treatment for dogs is a liquid Spot-On and is applied directly to the skin. The active ingredient spreads throughout the skin and can kill fleas through contact within 24 hours, so your dog doesn’t have to be bitten in order for the treatment to work.

How to apply Advantage flea treatment for dogs?

  1. Unpackage the pipette and break its seal
  2. Part the fur between your pet’s shoulder blades or base of the skull, so that the skin is visible (remove the pet’s collar if necessary)
  3. Squeeze the pipette onto the skin. Try to avoid the liquid saturating the fur. (You may need to repeat the second step again a little higher than the first spot if you have a larger volume of liquid)
  4. Dispose of the pipette and wash your hands. Avoid touching the wet application spot on your pet.

How long after applying Advantage can I bathe my dog?

Following the application of Advantage Spot-On, we would advise ensuring the application site is dry before allowing any exposure to water, and a minimum of 48 hours after product application before significant water exposure.
