Advantage Multi is a monthly topical application that combines the insecticide, imidacloprid and the parasiticide moxidectin. In dogs, Advantage Multi is used to prevent heartworm, and to treat and control flea infestations, roundworms, hookworms and whipworms. In cats, Advantage Multi is used to prevent heartworm, and to treat and control flea infestations, hookworms, roundworms and ear mites. You must have a prescription from your veterinarian to order Advantage Multi.
Advantage Multi uses the active ingredient moxidectin to prevent and control heartworms and intestinal worms, disrupting their nerve transmissions and resulting in paralysis and death of the parasites. Imidacloprid, the other active ingredient, attacks the flea's nervous system to cause paralysis and death. 6 monthly doses of Advantage Multi will protect your pet for an entire 6 months!
Side effects, while rare, may occure after using any pesticide product for pets. Should symptoms persist, or become more severe, consult a veterinarian immediately.
