Advocate for Dogs – Topical Flea & Heartworm Treatment
Advocate for Dogs prevents flea infestations as well as gastrointestinal worm infections. It controls intestinal worms including roundworms, whipworms, and hookworms. It’s a topical spot-on treatment that not only destroys multiple parasites, but also prevents heartworm infection in puppies and dogs. Furthermore, Advocate controls sarcoptic mange, Demodex mites and ear mites present in dogs. This monthly topical treatment is also water-resistant and fastest flea control product.
It has to be applied monthly for best results.
Method of working:
Imidachoprid and Moxidectin are the active ingredients in Advocate. The ingredients in Advocate kill parasites by hindering their neurotransmissions. Central nervous system of the parasites is attacked, which results in the disruption of invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This results in paralysis and ultimately destroys them. 98-100% fleas are killed within 12 hours of application. Advocate kills fleas on contact, so dogs don’t suffer painful bites, reducing the incidence of Flea Allergy Dermatitis.
The spot-on not only kills adult worms but also kills larval and immature stages of roundworms and hookworms.
The treatment is effective for a month and halts the growth of fleas.
Advocate is safe to use on puppies of 7 weeks or older.
