Advantage II has also been formulated for your favourite feline. Cats, like dogs, are also sufferers of flea infestations which can have a myriad of effects on their health. Bayer’s Advantage II for Cats works on the same principles as Advantage II for Dogs. It is gentle enough to be used on kittens from eight weeks old to adult cats and will get rid of flea infestations within the first 12 hours of applying it to your cat.
While experts and users say that most flea collars are ineffective or even toxic, they make a very notable exception when it comes to the Seresto Flea and Tick Collar. It uses the same active ingredient as Advantage II to get rid of fleas, coupled with an effective tick repellent and killer, in a slow release formulation that provides up to eight months of protection. Versions are available for small and large dogs, and for cats.

Advantage II is a monthly flea preventative for dogs and cats that offers comprehensive flea protection by killing adult fleas, larvae, and eggs. Plus, it kills fleas through contact, which means fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Advantage II also treats, prevents, and controls lice on dogs. Advantage II does not kill ticks, so we recommend using the along with Advantage II (dogs only). Advantage II for small cats 5-9 lbs can also be used for ferrets weighing 1 lb or over and 10 weeks of age or older. Under normal conditions Advantage II is effective for a month. However, in case of severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than four weeks. Do not re-treat cats or dogs more often than once every 7 days. For ferrets, do not retreat more often than every 14 days. After flea control is obtained, return to a monthly treatment.The first active ingredient is imidacloprid, which acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death. Within 12 hours of application on cats and dogs, 98-100 percent of fleas are dead. Advantage II Small Cat kills the existing fleas on ferrets within 24 hours. The second active ingredient, pyriproxyfen, is an insect growth regulator. Once a female flea lays her eggs, pyriproxyfen works to prevent the eggs from hatching, ending the flea life cycle. Also, the active ingredient in Advantage II kills through contact, which means that fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Reinfesting fleas are killed with protection against further flea infestation lasting for up to 4 weeks. Pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to emerge for 6 weeks or longer depending upon the climactic conditions.Advantage II comes in various sizes that correspond to the size of your pet (0.23ml turquoise colour applicators for kittens of under 5 lb, 0.4ml orange applicators for cats of 5-9 lb and a 0.8ml purple coloured applicator for cats that are 9lb and over; for dogs there are four sizes corresponding to the size of your dog). Advantage II should be used every month for both cats and dogs to give continuing protection. For cats, it should be placed directly on the skin at the base of the skull above the shoulder blades, the point at which it is most difficult for your cat to groom itself.
