Spring is the start of flea season and pet parents can get ahead of a flea problem with a topical treatment that prevents fleas, ticks and other biting pests from feasting on your furry friend.
Beyond the obvious discomfort of being bitten, flea infestations can trigger your pet’s immune system to overreact, contributing to other issues. Fleas bites are also associated with flea allergy dermatitis and flea bite anemia.
One preventative option is the Advantage II monthly topical application as well as the brand’s treatment shampoos and sprays. Used together, Advantage treatments can prevent, treat and control the spread of fleas and ticks.

Advantage® II for cats is monthly topical flea prevention and treatment. It can be used to prevent and treat infestations of fleas and lice. These topical treatments kill and repel pests before they bite.
Killing adult fleas prevents them from laying eggs which can lead to a re-infestation.
For cats, Advantage® II can be used on cats and kittens 8 weeks of age and older and weighing at least two pounds. It comes in dosages for kittens weighing 2-5 lbs., small cats weighing between 5 to 9 lbs., and large cats weighing over 9 lbs.
The formula is approved by vets for its all-day effectiveness and is available at PetSmart without a prescription.
