A large population of dogs and cats (some 3272 animals) with flea allergy dermatitis skin lesions were given Advantage flea control topically, in accordance with directions. The study found that fleas were killed rapidly and that animals were prevented from being reinfested by fleas for at least 28 days following the single dose. Some animals were washed and even shampooed during the study without this affecting the efficacy of the treatment (I would still exercise caution if using soapy shampoos though) and all animals showed improvement in their clinical flea allergy signs regardless of living conditions (e.g. flea burden in the environment), coat type or body size. The study showed Advantage flea control to be highly beneficial in helping to treat animals with flea allergy dermatitis. is sold in several different dosages, for small, medium, large and extra-large dogs; as you might expect, versions for larger dogs cost a little more than those for smaller ones. Dog owners are not quite as enthusiastic about Advantage II as cat owners. Although most owners find it effective, dog owners were more likely than cat owners to complain that Advantage II either didn't work or stopped working before the one-month treatment period was up. Veterinarian dermatologist Jon Plant, writing at the Itchy Dog Blog, notes a study, albeit in cats, that shows some drop in effectiveness toward the end of a month. He adds that "the Advantage line of products are generally very effective for flea control in most situations, when used as directed (monthly)."Get fast flea relief for your pet with Bayer Advantage II Flea Treatment for Large Cats.
