Advantage MULTI for CATS Directions Consult a veterinarian to determine the proper dosage for your pet. Break the seal and remove the cap of a tube of the appropriate dosage; part the hair at the base of the cat's head, place the tip of the tube on the exposed skin and apply the entire contents of the tube. Lift the tube away from the skin and then release the pressure.
Keep the product away from the cat's eyes; do not allow the cat to lick the product or ingest it in any way, and keep pets separated from each other to prevent them from licking each other's application sites.Veterinary Therapeutics in 2000, looked at the "Efficacy of imidacloprid on dogs and cats with natural infestations of fleas, with special emphasis on flea hypersensitivity." 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.
