ADVANTAGE MULTI FOR CATS (ALSO KNOWN AS ADVOCATE) (IMIDACLOPRID/MOXIDECTIN)

Advantage Multi for Cats Description

Both indoor and outdoor cats can have fleas, ear mites, and worms, including heartworm so it’s important that you protect the feline members of your household. Talk to your veterinarian about Advantage Multi for Cats for peace of mind knowing you are providing continuous protection to your cats as young as 9 weeks old and weighing at least 2lbs.

Watch for signs of scratching, hair loss, tiny black specks that resemble dirt in the hair and on their skin, weight loss, lethargy, shaking and scratching at their ears. Your pet doctor can examine your cat and recommend Advantage Multi for Cats (also known as Advocate) as a treatment or preventative measure against parasites. Advantage Multi for Cats is also FDA approved for treating fleas and preventing heartworm in ferrets.

Two Active Ingredients That Can Provide Protection for Your Cats

Advantage Multi for Cats contains 2 active ingredients Imidacloprid and Moxidectin. Once applied topically to your pets skin as directed by the vet, Imidacloprid mimics nicotine and acts on the insect’s central nervous system by blocking the nicotinergic neuronal pathway so there is no stimuli transmissions received and this results in paralysis and eventual death. Moxidectin is called an anthelmintic that takes care of internal and external parasites by affecting certain channels and muscle cells so neurotransmissions fail and death results from paralysis.

Conditions Treated by Advantage Multi for Cats

Heartworm can also be a threat to ferrets, members of the mustelid family that includes badgers, weasels, skunks, otters, and other mammals that are musk-producing. The bite from an infected mosquito can transmit the Dirofilaria immitis parasite to the ferret and lodge itself in the pulmonary artery of its heart. As it grows, the organ will increase in size and cause high blood pressure, blood clots, or both. It only takes one or two adult worms to cause heart disease and possible death unless preventative measures are taken to protect your ferret.

Before Administering Advantage Multi for Cats

Ask your veterinarian if Advantage Multi for Cats is safe for pregnant or nursing cats before applying this product. Dosing is dependent on age and weight of your feline. Discuss other medical conditions known to your cat and list the OTC or Rx drugs currently being given to be certain this doesn’t interfere with Advantage Multi for Cats.

Advantage Multi for Cats Proper Use

After each application of Advantage (Imidacloprid/Moxidectin), do not allow children or other pets to touch the treated area until it has all been absorbed. It is usually recommended to part the hair at the base of the pet’s skull to apply Advantage as this exposes the skin for better absorption and is a difficult spot for a cat or ferret to lick. Wash hands thoroughly after application so you do not touch your eyes or mouth by accident. Remove any collars your cat wears as the ingredients may wick into the collar and leave your cat less protected. Keep out of children’s reach.

Possible Side Effects of Advantage Multi for Cats

  • Tremors
  • Drooling/vomiting
  • Decreased appetite

These side effects may occur if your cat is able to lick the treated area, otherwise the risk is minimal. Medical attention is recommended if you suspect your cat has ingested Advantage Multi for Cats from grooming. Ferrets may display increased itching or scratching and redness or inflammation at the treated area.
