How Advantage Multi® for Dogs Works
Advantage Multi® for Dogs is a convenient, monthly topical solution that, when applied directly to your dog’s skin:
The two active ingredients in Advantage Multi® for Dogs are imidacloprid and moxidectin.
Imidacloprid acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death.
Moxidectin in Advantage Multi® for Dogs acts on the nervous system of heartworms and intestinal worms (roundworms, hookworms and whipworms) to cause paralysis and subsequent death.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: Do not administer this product orally. Do not use this product (containing 2.5% moxidectin) on cats.
WARNINGS: For the first 30 minutes after application: Ensure that dogs cannot lick the product from application sites on themselves or other treated dogs, and separate treated dogs from one another and from other pets to reduce the risk of accidental ingestion. Ingestion of this product by dogs may cause serious adverse reactions including depression, salivation, dilated pupils, incoordination, panting, and generalized muscle tremors. In avermectin sensitive dogs, the signs may be more severe and may include coma and death.
HUMAN WARNINGS: Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children. Children should not come in contact with the application site for two (2) hours after application.
