Advantage 80 Spot On Flea Control Large Cats and Rabbits
Heather, it sounds you may have a Maine Coon? Many visitors seem to have questions regarding this large cat breed. I can only advise to follow the label. This would mean using 1 tube of the 9lb+. If this doesn’t solve the problem, the cat can be retreated earlier than 1 month (no more than once every 7 days). Trish, I don’t own any flea control product company. I just provide information from research on FleaScience.com. Fleas bite humans too. Home infestations can take months to clear because only 5% of fleas live on your pet. The other 95% are in your home environment as eggs, larvae and pupae. In very rare occasions skin reactions such as hair loss, redness, itching and skin lesions may occur. Agitation and disorientation has also been reported. Excessive salivation and nervous signs such as incoordination, tremors and depression have been reported exceptionally in dogs. Legally, I can’t recommend any off-label use of an insecticide product. Plus, not applying the full dose of the correct product can lead to under-dosing and control failure.
There isn’t any need to keep them apart. Some of the treatment will come off in the environment as residue, and some will come off on the cats if they play. However, this won’t be a significant amount. Why Worry About Fleas? Aside from causing irritation, fleas can lead to Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) and even anaemia in serious cases. Infected fleas can also transmit tapeworm if swallowed during grooming. Advantage contains imidacloprid which kills fleas whilst Program contains lufenuron which is an insect growth regulator and prevents the fleas maturing from larvae to adult. They compliment each other in how they work and would work well together. Studies on pregnant and lactating bitches, queens and does together with their offspring are limited. Evidence so far indicates that no adverse effects are to be expected in these animals.

I've been using this for 10+ years, since when you had to have it prescribed/through your vets. Glad when it was 'downgraded' so you no longer needed to see your vet & pay higher prices for it, especially if like me.. you have 'Acquired' a few cats.. like 6, + the stray/feral's i care for. I’m not sure which product you applied to your cat. You mentioned that you used one for cats under 10 lbs, but there are two products that fit this category: small cats (2 to 5 lbs) and medium cats (5 to 9 lbs). Available as a spot on, it is easy to apply and treats the whole animal. Advantage can be used on cats and dogs from 8 weeks of age, and on rabbits from 10 weeks. It is safe to apply to lactating females and doing this will treat the puppies or kittens as well as the adult.Advantage and Frontline contain different ingredients so you can use them close together. You should only need 1 type of flea treatment though, Frontline lasts 1 month so should be working. Results speak for themselves.. Never had or hardly seen a flea or the tell tale signs.. for over 10 years.. Works! Do not use in animals that are known to be hypersensitive to the active substance or any of the excipients. This information is regarding mode of action and is not intended to imply fleas can be completely stopped from biting. In addition to this flea treatment you may require an additional household spray to combat fleas which may not have yet hatched or dormant fleas in and around the house.

If the product gets into eyes accidentally, the eyes should be thoroughly flushed with water. If skin or eye irritation persists, or the product is accidentally swallowed, obtain medical attention. I also advise reading our blog on how to clear a flea infestation, often this requires treating the environment too:
Fleas can cause more than just irritation in dogs; they can lead to flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) or even anaemia (if it’s a severe infestation). Some pets develop allergies to flea saliva, which means even a few bites can lead to severe itching and sore skin infected fleas can also transmit tapeworm if swallowed during grooming. All very nasty stuff. One application of Advantage remains effective for up to 4 weeks in pets and up to one week in rabbits. For dogs < 25kg: Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin. Advantage is one of the most effective and safe treatments to treat fleas on dogs, cats and rabbits.
