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 dogs over 110 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.
With the dog standing with its back horizontal, part the fur at the administration site (between the shoulder blades) until the skin is visible. Place the tube vertically against the skin between the shoulder blades of the dog. Squeeze the tube and gently apply the solution in one or more spots (depending on weight of dog) starting between the top of the backline from the base of the neck to the upper back and shoulder blades, apply in areas that are inaccessible to licking. Avoid applying an excessive amount of solution in any one spot which may cause some to run or drip off the dog.
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 dog has missed a dose please consult with your veterinarian.
