Advantage Multi For Cats Heartworm Prevention And Flea Treatment
Advantage flea control is compatible with Lufenuron, which is a flea control pill that acts to stop flea eggs from hatching. Giving Advantage flea control, along with Program flea control (Lufenuron) can help to achieve an aggressive flea killing effect and flea larvae killing effect (Advantage flea control) along with an inhibitory effect on flea eggs (Program). Rapid eradication of fleas results from adult fleas dying on contact with the Advantage treated animal as well as eradication of the flea eggs and larvae in the environment. If you have a badly allergic pet and a massive flea burden in your home, it would be worth considering combining the two products (at least for the first few months) for extra speedy flea eradication.
