Advocate for Dogs

Advocate Spot On for Large Dogs is a treatment for fleas and their larvae, roundworm, hookworm, heartworm and ear mites in dogs. It also treats lungworm, whipworm, biting lice, sarcoptes and demodex.

Advocate for dogs is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received.

Advocate for dogs comes in different strengths and pack sizes, depending on the size of the animal being treated. The medicine can only be obtained with a prescription. Advocate is applied from pre-filled pipettes. These are small plastic droppers, available in different sizes depending on the size of the animal, which are filled with the correct amount of Advocate for one treatment. The content of a full pipette is applied onto the animal’s skin, after parting the fur. Advocate for dogs is applied between the shoulder blades at the bottom of the dog’s head, but for large dogs (above 25 kg) the product should be applied in 3 or 4 spots along the dog’s back, whilst it is standing, from between its shoulder blades to the base of its tail.

How does Advocate for Dogs work? Advocate for dogs contains two active substances, imidacloprid and moxidectin. Imidacloprid interferes with certain specific receptors (nicotinergic acetylcholine receptors) in the nervous systems of lice and fleas, which results in their subsequent paralysis and death. Moxidectin causes paralysis and death of nematodes and heartworms by interfering with the way signals are passed between nerve cells (neurotransmission) in the parasites' nervous system.

    "I normally rate this company 5 stars but I struggled to implement my order using your new format + Problems re prescription, which was no ones problem. When I got to speak with one of your personnel, she talked me through the ordering which worked well. Hopefully I will have no such problems when placing my next order and my next review will hopefully go back to 5stars.
    Regards
    Pauline"
