Advocate for Cats
Advocate for cats is a flea and wormer spot on treatment for protecting against fleas, roundworm, lungworm, heartworm and ear mites. It is supplied in packets of 3 or 6 single use pipettes. Each screw cap pipette contains a solution containing Imidacloprid and Moxidectin which presents in a yellowy/brown liquid.
The dosage and strength of Advocate for cats treatment depends the size of cat and on why it's being used. Use Advocate for Small Cats if your cat weighs less than 4kg and Advocate for Large Cats if your cat weighs over 4kg. For cats larger than 8kg use the appropriate combination of Advocate for cat pipettes. One treatment of Advocate for cats treats any existing infestation and prevents future flea infestations for 4 weeks.
How to administer Advocate for Cats: Part the fur on the back of your cat's neck at the base of the skull. You may want to slightly dampen your fingers to part the fur, especially if they have a very thick coat. Where you can see skin place the top of the pipette and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents onto the skin. Advocate for Cats is applied to the base of the skull to minimise the chances of your cat licking the product. Apply Advocate for Cats to your cat’s neck and the solution will quickly spread to kill 98-100% of fleas in just 12 hours. Only apply Advocate for Cats to undamaged skin. Do not use Advocate for cats in kittens under 9 weeks of age.
