Data Sheet for Advantage Spot On Flea Treatment Data Sheet
Treatment should be repeated after four weeks.
Advantage Flea Treatment remains effective if the animal becomes wet, for example after exposure to heavy rain or after swimming (dogs). However, re-treatment may become necessary, depending on the presence of fleas in the environment. In these cases do not treat more frequently than once weekly.
In the case of biting louse infestation in dogs, a veterinary examination 30 days after treatment is recommended as some animals may require a second treatment.
Note on using this flea treatment for dogs:
Do not apply an excessive amount of solution at any one spot that could cause some of the solution to run down the side of the dog. The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occasionally occur if the dog licks the application site immediately after treatment. Correct application will minimise the opportunity for the dog to lick the product. Apply only to undamaged skin. Do not allow recently treated animals to groom each other.
