Advocate for dogs is supplied in packs of 3 or 6 single use pipettes.

Looking for a different size?
Advocate is available as a spot-on solution and 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.
The dose and frequency of application depends on why Advocate is being used; the package leaflet includes detailed information on dosage and duration of treatment.
Advocate for dogs is available to buy from Pet Drugs Online at up to 52% cheaper than your vet.
How does Advocate for dogs work?
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.
Advocate for dogs is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received.

My moggy hangs around with the neighbourhood strays and consequently ended up infested with fleas. The local supermarket only sold one brand which was ineffective. I ordered from pet drugs, the order arrived 2 days later and 24 hours later my cat is flea free. Brilliant.
Easy to use online website. They answered my queries quickly and fully and their products wete grest value for money. I saved so much money compared to going to my local vets! Will definitely order again. Speedy delivery too and was kept up to date with the delivery process. Lots of choices too.
I have used the product and my cats still have fleas. I do not understand. I have used the same product before bought somewhere else and it worked perfectly well.
Brilliant. Three months worth of arthritis drugs for our young golden retriever for the price of one month from our local vet. Came in the post really fast. Really happy with pet drugs and will continue to purchase these items through them.
Excellent speedy service. I would use them again as it was so easy to find what I wanted on the website.
