Advantage For Cats and Dogs (Imidacloprid only) does not kill ticks.
However be sure you do not use K9 Advantix or Advantix on your cats. It’s a dogs only formula.
I’m considering using Advantage II on my indoor cats that are 10# and up. The vials suggested via the Amazon link are 1 dram which (according to my research) equals 3.697 ml. Won’t they be too small for the 4.0 ml contents from one applicator of Advantage II for large dogs? Thank you for your help.
Studies have also been conducted on a range of other animal species, showing that imidacloprid (the active ingredient of Advantage flea control) is well-tolerated by a range of vertebrate species including: mustelids (e.g. mink, ferrets), rodents (e.g. rats, prairie dogs, squirrels, guinea pigs) and marsupials (e.g. bandicoots). Advantage flea control products are officially registered for use in dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets only, however, and the use of this product on other species is therefore "off-label" and can not be in any way guaranteed or advised (see your vet for information and doses).

Does anyone know if you can use Advantage For Dogs on cats? On the back it is the same ingredients, so if one used a smaller amount of the Dog Advantage on a cat would it be ok?
Mary from Floridayou can buy the Advantage for dogs and split it up for use on cats. Don't worry, it's safe. When I first heard about this, years ago, I asked my vet about it. He got out a box of Advantage for large dogs and a box of Advantage for cats. He compared the ingredients. He was surprised to find out they were the same. Now, they tell their clients about this, saving them money.Always read package labeling and directions prior to using Advantage.
