Review: Advantage Spot On Flea Treatment

Trent Webb

advantage flea treatment review

Advantage is a non-prescription spot-on flea treatment from Bayer. It comes in packs of 4 pipettes (not three like many others) and uses a different active ingredient (imidacloprid) to the likes of Frontline, Flevox, Effipro etc (fipronil). It works within one day of application and is effective for 4 weeks on dogs, 3 to 4 weeks on cats and 1 week on rabbits.

Advantage is one of our best selling flea treatments and is the non-prescription element of the Bayer “Ad…” anti-parasitic range. There are versions for dogs, cats and rabbits. So just weigh your pet, pick the right size pack and get pipetting – although we’re not sure that’s a real verb.
