Advantage Multi® Topical Solution should be applied as directed by your veterinarian. This medication should be administered at every 30 day intervals, year-round to guarantee complete protection. For cats over 18 lbs, use the appropriate combination of tubes to ensure complete protection.
Immediately before use, open the pouch and remove the tube. Hold the tube at the crimped end with the cap in the upright position (tip up). Remove the cap from the tube and turn the cap over and push the other end of the cap onto the tip of the tube. Twist the cap to break the seal then remove the cap from the tube. Always keep the tube in the upright position to prevent leaking.
Part the fur on the back of the cat's neck at the base of the head, until skin is visible. Place the tube vertically against the skin. Squeeze the tube and gently apply the solution in one spot. For the first 30 minutes after application ensure the cat cannot lick the product from application sites on themselves or other treated animals.
Do not contact or allow children to contact the application site until dry. Wash hands and contacted skin thoroughly with soap and water immediately after application.
Give the dose as soon as you remember, unless it is time for the next dose. Do not double dose. If your cat has missed a dose please consult with your veterinarian.
Advantage Multi® Topical Solution is generally well tolerated in cats when given at the usual dose.
