The fastest solution for fleas, heartworms, intestinal worms, and other parasites
Advocate helps protect your dog from a wide range of parasites with a monthly application.
Advocate is a spot-on that can be applied monthly to help rid your dog of parasites, as well as provide ongoing protection. A powerful blend of ingredients in Advocate provides fast relief from fleas, prevents deadly heartworm, and helps protect your dog from most intestinal worms, including roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Find out more about Advocate for Dogs.
Put an end to flea infestations
Imidacloprid, the active ingredient that kills fleas, spreads across the skin and coat of your dog within 12 hours. Re-infesting fleas are affected within 3-5 minutes of contact with your dog, and killed within 1 hour. The active ingredient is not absorbed into your dog's bloodstream like chewable tablets, so fleas are killed on contact without needing to feed on blood. Imidacloprid crystals are shed by your dog when it sheds their skin and fur, killing flea larvae and breaking the life cycle of fleas.
Protects against intestinal worms on a comprehensive basis
At the time of treatment, most wormers for dogs only kill adult worms in the intestines, but this does not solve the problem. As larvae migrate through your dog's body, they cause damage, and along with the immature adults, they eventually mature into adults, which not only harms your dog, but also leads to environmental contamination from egg shedding before the next treatment. You and your family are also at risk!
Roundworms and hookworms are not only killed by Advocate for dogs, but also their immature adult stages and larvae. Advocate also kills all species of important intestinal nematode worms found in Australian dogs, unlike many other products, providing complete protection.
Prevents re-infection between doses with Advocate
Heartworms and intestinal worms can re-infect dogs between treatments with many products. Advocate reaches a steady state with regular monthly use, providing continuous protection from heartworm and intestinal worms between doses. You can rest assured that your dog is fully protected against these parasites with Advocate's topically applied moxidectin.
Directions for use
During treatment, ensure that your dog is standing before applying Advocate. After the product has dried, replace your dog's collar - unless it is wearing a Seresto collar. Advocate can be applied without removing it.
Apply the treatment away from the eyes and mouth to avoid causing irritation. After your dog has been bathed and dried completely, apply Advocate.
Keep a record of the treatment date and repeat it monthly.
In dogs, what are the side effects of Advocate?
There is a possibility that hair loss may occur at the application site. Hair grows back normally after a single occurrence.
How does Advocate work?
The active ingredients in Advocate are:
Unlike oral treatments (like chewable tablets) that require the medication to be absorbed into your dog's bloodstream, the active ingredient in Advocate that kills fleas, imidacloprid, spreads through your dog's skin and fur and kills fleas on contact, so they do not have to bite your dog.
Another active ingredient, moxidectin, is rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout your dog's body, killing heartworms, intestinal nematode worms, and mites.
Advocate kills which parasites?
With Advocate, you can get rid of adult fleas, flea larvae, heartworm, intestinal worms (roundworms and hookworms [larvae, immature adults, and adults] and whipworm), ear mites, sarcoptic mites, and demodex mites.
How long does it take for Advocate to work on fleas and worms?
The first application kills between 98 and 100 percent of your dog's existing fleas. Following this, fleas are killed within one hour with monthly use. The moxidectin component, which is effective against heartworms and worms internally, is rapidly absorbed (<24 hours).
How long does Advocate last?
One treatment protects your dog for one month.
