Safe for use on puppies from 7 weeks of age.
Why choose Advocate™ for your dog?
Fast acting, stopping reinfesting fleas from feeding in 3-5 minutes once contact occurs.
Simple, easy-to-use, monthly spot-on treatment.
Parasite protection inside and out from fleas, worms, ear mites and lice.
How does Advocate™ work?
Fleas are killed on contact with "no need to bite"
After application, the active ingredient, imidacloprid, spreads across your dog’s skin and coat within 12 hours and kills fleas on contact; which means the fleas don’t need to bite your dog to die. This means less stress and discomfort for your dog by minimising painful, itchy flea bites.
Then any, reinfesting fleas are affected by the active ingredient within 3-5 minutes and killed within 1 hour.
As your dog naturally sheds their skin and fur, tiny imidacloprid crystals are also shed into the environment, killing flea larvae. As Advocate™ kills both fleas and flea larvae, this is effectively breaking the flea life cycle.
Imidacloprid also acts topically, targeting lice in dogs.
Monthly parasite protection both inside and out against a broad spectrum of parasites
An easy-to-use spot-on applied monthly, Advocate™ offers parasite protection both inside and out, to help rid your dog of existing parasites and provide ongoing protection.
The active ingredients in Advocate™ provide fast relief from fleas, and help protect your dog from flea larvae, plus intestinal worms including roundworm, hookworm, whipworm, sarcoptic mange, demodectic mange, lice and ear mites.
How to apply Advocate™ on your dog
Remove the required tubes from the package. Hold the tube upright and away from you, and pull off the cap.
Reverse the cap and push the cap back on the tube. Twist the cap to break the seal and then remove the cap from the tube.
For dogs under 25kg, apply one tube between the shoulder blades. Part the hair until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube firmly twice to apply the solution directly on the skin.
If your dog is larger than 25kg, apply one tube by dividing the dose between the shoulder blades, on the midline of the back between the hips, and at one point in between. For very large dogs over 40kg, apply 2 tubes of Advocate™. Part the hair until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube firmly twice to apply the solution directly on the skin.
Directions for use
For easy application, make sure your dog is standing before applying Advocate™. Remove your dog’s collar, and put it back on after the product is dry - except if your dog is wearing a Seresto™ collar. You don't need to remove it when applying Advocate™.
Avoid applying the treatment near the eyes or mouth area as this may cause irritation. Wash your dog before application and apply Advocate™ when your dog is completely dry.
Record the treatment date and repeat monthly or as directed.
