Advantage 2 Flea Control Pet Medication

The new and improved version of Advantage 2 now has imidacloprid to kill flea adults, larvae and eggs, and also has the insect growth regulator pyriproxyfen, which inhibits flea eggs from hatching. Clients in the clinic have been extremely satisfied with the performance of this updated version of Advantage, and report even better efficacy of flea control.  Side effects of the product are rare. Advantage 2 is a monthly flea preventative for dogs and cats that offers comprehensive flea protection by killing adult fleas, larvae, and eggs.

The most common usually mild side effect is irritation at the site of application. Even less commonly digestive upset or neurological reactions can occur. However, the vast majority of pets tolerate this product quite well. When clients report flea outbreaks with regular use of Advantage 2, the first thing I look at is the client applying the product in the appropriate fashion to the skin, as well as if the client is also utilizing environmental flea control as well in the home and possibly in the yard.

Resistance has yet to be seen with this product in my experience and opinion. Common client concerns also include whether it is safe to use around small children. However, once the product has dried, risks to humans is usually quite low. And now that the warmer months are upon us and our pets will be spending more time outside, what is one of the most important preventative steps you can take towards good health with dogs and cats? Using an excellent topical flea preventative like Advantage 2 is certainly an important place to start.
