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

Full instructions for using Advocate for dogs included.
Advocate for dogs contains two active substances, imidacloprid and moxidectin.
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.

I have been using Pet Drugs Online for the last few years. Their medication is always the cheapest I've found, saving me thousands of pounds it would have cost me buying it from the vets. Excellent customer service and delivery as well.
Good service & great value, their savings are a lot more than other online pet drug companies .
Delivery could've been quicker considering it wasn't free.

Thankyou for your feedback. The effipro treatment is a fipronil based treatment which a large number of flea products use. These are effective in killing adult fleas but not the egg or larvae stage. It would be worth either trying frontline plus which will treat all stages of the flea cycle. Or use a household spray to treat the immature stages that are in the home
Kind regards Shirley
