Mar 12, 2016 - However, after a while, Bayer added a “Do not use on Cats” warning on the packaging of Advantage II for Dogs
Advantage II by Bayer Animal Health Care is the newest version of their tested and bestselling Advantage flea removal drops that have been on the market for over 14 years. Advantage II has been specially formulated so that it can be used on puppies from seven weeks old all the way up to adult dogs and is the leading flea infestation removal product on the market. It has been specially formulated to kill fleas throughout the life-cycle, and also prevent them from infesting your home. It's special formula means that it will kill all fleas within 12 hours of the first application, and will continue to keep killing the fleas within two hours of re-infestation, which means that any fleas that jump onto the dog after the initial application will also be killed within two hours.
Advantage II has also been formulated for your favourite feline. Cats, like dogs, are also sufferers of flea infestations which can have a myriad of effects on their health. Bayer’s Advantage II for Cats works on the same principles as Advantage II for Dogs. It is gentle enough to be used on kittens from eight weeks old to adult cats and will get rid of flea infestations within the first 12 hours of applying it to your cat.

I’ve been using Advantage for Dogs on cats for many years by purchasing the Dogs derivative and splitting it into smaller doses appropriate for my cat’s weight. This seemed to be a common practice with vets as the Active Ingredients of the Dogs and Cats derivatives were identical. When Advantage II came out, I continued with the practice of using the Dog product on Cats only adjusting the dosage. However, after a while, Bayer added a “Do not use on Cats” warning on the packaging of Advantage II for Dogs. I can understand why Bayer would put such a warning from a marketing point of view. However, as the non-active ingredients are not listed on the packaging of either product, I’m not sure whether there might be another reason.
I was wondering if you had any insight on this question of using Advantage II for Dogs on Cats.
I look forward to hearing from you, O.Bayer (the maker of Advantage II) also offers (Est. $85 for a 6 month supply). Advantage Multi, offered by prescription only and in formulations for dogs and cats, adds additional protections against hookworms, round worms and other parasites (depending on the species). However, it is not an all life cycle flea killer and is only effective on adult fleas, not flea eggs and larvae. The cat version is the only product that's also FDA approved for use on ferrets (minimum weight of 2 pounds). One disadvantage to products in the Advantage line is that they don't protect against ticks. If that's a concern, a different product could be a better choice.Advantage II is a flea infestation prevention medicine made for both dogs and cats by Bayer Animal Health Care. It has been in use for over 14 years and is the leading flea preventative that offers all round protection for your favourite pet.
