Product Information

Advantage Multi for Dogs is:a broad-spectrum preventative medication that contains active ingredients that work well to prevent heartworm disease. This medication is a liquid that is applied to the skin once a month or as directed by your veterinarian. It works to control and treat flea infestations, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms in addition to providing heartworm protection.
What outcomes can be expected?

Advantage Multi for Dogs kills immature heartworms that your dog was exposed to in the month prior to receiving treatment. It is also a great option to help to control and treat common intestinal parasites (roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms). The broad-spectrum action of this medication also kills adult fleas in addition to providing heartworm and intestinal parasite control. You may see fleas for up to 6 weeks after a treatment as the immature form of the fleas in the environment hatch if your dog was already infested with fleas prior to receiving treatment.

Who is it for: Dogs and puppies over 7 weeks of age at least 3 lbs. There is no safety data available regarding use in breeding, pregnant, or nursing dogs.

How does it work? The active ingredients (10% imidacloprid and 2.5% moxidectin) work together to kill many types of parasites. Imidacloprid is effective in killing fleas. It works by attacking the flea’s nervous system which results in paralysis and eventual death of the flea. Moxidectin kills heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) larvae before they have the chance to develop into adults. Moxidectin also works well to kill roundworms (Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina), hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum and Uncinaria stenocephala), and whipworms (Trichuris vulpis) which are common intestinal parasites.

Advantage Multi for Dogs is available as: liquid that is applied on your dog’s skin every 30 days or as prescribed by your veterinarian. This dose is formulated for dogs weighing 9.1-20 lbs.

Generic Name: Imidacloprid plus moxidectin.

Common Brand Name: Advantage Multi (Bayer)

Dose and Administration: Advantage Multi for dogs is applied on the skin and should not be ingested. Apply one dose once a month on the same day every month for optimal results. It is recommended to give Advantage Multi year round but some veterinarians may recommend giving it only during the warm months of the year when mosquitoes are most active. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the dog's first exposure to mosquitoes and the last dose must be given within 30 days after the dog's last exposure to mosquitoes. Application is easy. Simply part the hair between your dog’s shoulder blades until you can visualize the skin. Open the applicator and apply directly on the skin in one spot. Try to place the medication in a place where your dog cannot lick. Make sure you get the medication directly on your dog's skin, not on the hair coat. Do not let your dog lick himself until the product dries (approximately 30 minutes after application). If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. Do not give two doses at once and do not apply more than one treatment every 30 days. If treatments are given at closer intervals, they can cause harm to your dog. If you miss more than one monthly dose, contact your veterinarian because a heartworm test may be necessary prior to restarting treatment.

Uses: Advantage Multi for Dogs 9.1-20 lbs. is a broad-spectrum preventative medication that is given topically (on your dog’s skin) every month or as directed by your veterinarian. It kills heartworm larvae, kills fleas, and works to treat and control certain intestinal parasites (roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms).

    Precautions: Heartworm testing is usually required prior to starting your dog on heartworm prevention. Speak with your veterinarian regarding the testing protocol that is right for your dog. This medication should be applied to the skin and should not be ingested. Collies or other herding breeds may have a severe reaction to Advantage Multi if they ingest the product. If your dog is one of these breeds, and your veterinarian has prescribed Advantage Multi, observe your pet closely for at least 30 minutes to ensure your dog does not lick the site of application. Also observe for depression, weakness, staggering, dilated pupils, trembling, panting, or coma. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your dog is acting unusual in any way once this medication has been applied. Talk to your veterinarian about other measures you can take to prevent your pet from being infected with intestinal worms especially since they can be spread to people. Avoid contact with the treated area and prevent your dog from licking the application site for 30 minutes after applying. Do not use Advantage Multi in dogs that are hypersensitive (allergic) to imidacloprid or moxidectin. Avoid use of this medication in dogs that are sick, debilitated, or underweight. Puppies less than 7 weeks of age or dogs or puppies less than 3 lbs. of body weight should not be given Advantage Multi.
