quick Advantage question

Post by da.. » Mon, 17 May 1999 04:00:00



When we boarded our dog last summer, the vet put on some Advantage and
sent the remainder of the package home with us. Now, I want to start
applying what's left over - but the vet didn't leave the instructions
in the box.

We got some Frontline for the kittens last summer also, and I seem to
remember putting it on their backs between the shoulder blades...is
this the same way that Advantage is applied? Sorry to ask such a
stoopid question, but I'm starting to see fleas, and I just can't
remember how to apply this stuff.

Can someone refresh my memory? Thanx in advance!

Part the hair at the base of the skull, and apply the drops to the skin.
I assume this is because cats can't reach the area, but it sure works.
With us, the cats had no fleas at all in a day!

Depending on how big the dog is.... I part the hair along the spine of
my dog and apply the advantage to the skin, not too much in one spot
so it doesn't run. When I first got advantage about three years ago I
did apply the whole tube between the shoulder blades. My dog has not
had a flea in three years thanks to this stuff.

Our vet instructed us to part the hair between the shoulder blades and apply
directly to the skin.  Depending on how bad the fleas are, it says you can also
apply right above where the tail starts.

With cats, you apply it at the base of the skull.

With dogs, you apply it between the shoulder blades (and if it's a big
dog, you put half between the shoulder blades and half down further on
the back).

Thanks, April - I wasn't sure about the dogs because up until about a
month ago this was a cat-only house...
