Advantage Flea Control Review
There are very few products that are both as safe and effective as Advantage, who is the reigning champion in flea preventatives.
When it comes to the world of flea control, there are many different routes that a pet owner can go and unfortunately there is common tendency for taking the wrong road.
It is easy to be mislead. There are many cheaper treatments than Advantage out there that tout their ability to rid your pet of fleas. It can be overwhelming as every product will say they can do exactly what the big names in flea control do, but the fact is, they can’t.
What’s worse, if you fall prey to the over the counter product claims and their inexpensive price tags, you could be putting the health of your dog or cat at risk.
Advantage is Recommended by Veterinarians
The product is produced by trusted pharmaceutical company, Bayer Healthcare. Bayer has been researching and developing pest products for pets since 1919 and believes that a “healthy and responsible relationship between owners and the pets who trust and depend on them” is very important.
Bayer’s Advantage Once-A-Month Topical Flea Treatment is a “spot-on” product that is meant for application once a month in order for it to work to the best of its ability. This product can be used year round regardless of season and can help prevent a flea infestation and kill existing fleas on a dog or cat.
Within three to five minutes of the first application, fleas will stop biting your animal and will start to work to kill the insect. The quick death of these bugs will help your pet avoid the risk of developing a secondary condition related to flea infestation such as dermatitis and tapeworms. Moreover, within twelve hours time, 98-100% of all fleas will be dead.
The Advantage topical product will also work to kill flea larvae within 20 minutes. Finally, Advantage is waterproof, so you can rest assured that if your dog or cat gets wet, they will not stand a chance for exposure to fleas. However, it must be noted that Advantage only works to kill fleas, not ticks or other bugs.
Advantage is not a one-size fits all product and comes in different dosage sizes based on the weight of your pet, therefore, you know that your pet will be getting just the amount they need to stay flea free and healthy.
