Two Active Ingredients Protect Your Canine From Parasites

Advantage Multi for Dogs provides broad-spectrum parasite protection for your pet.

Dosage is determined and packaged based on the weight of your dog.

How Advantage Multi for Dogs Works

When applied to a specific area of your canine so it cannot be groomed off, one of the active ingredients of Advantage Multi for Dogs called Imidacloprid starts to work by affecting the nervous system of the flea on contact, resulting in paralysis and eventual death of the flea which can cause tapeworms in your pet if ingested while grooming.

Moxidectin, the other active ingredient in Advantage Multi for Dogs, prevents heartworm if treated before exposure to the mosquitoes that carry the disease, as well as kills the larval stage of heartworm, roundworms, hookworms and whipworms by a process that involves interference with the parasites nerve and muscle cells so they become paralyzed and die and are passed from your pets body.

Conditions Treated by Advantage Multi for Dogs

Advantage Multi for Dogs provides protection for your dog from a number of different parasites.
