How to apply Advantage® II for Cats


Hold the applicator tube in an upright position facing away from you and your pet’s face and eyes. Pull the cap off the tube.


Turn the cap around and place the other end of the cap back on the tube. Twist the cap to break the seal, and then remove the cap from the tube.


Part the hair on your cat’s neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin.


Do not get this product in your cat’s eyes or allow your cat to ingest this product. Treatment at the base of the skull will minimize the opportunity for your cat to lick the product. Do not allow the product to run off.

Even indoor cats can get outdoor fleas

Fleas can infest your entire household: couches, carpets, you name it. Fight fleas from fur to fenceTM by treating your cat, home and yard with our full line of Advantage® products.
