Advantage Flea Control Treatment for Dogs and Cats. - Pet-Informed
Feb 9, 2013 - All the pets in my house (5 at the time) got fleas last year and despite three treatments with Advantage, they were all still scratching
I just read all of these comments and my fleas seem to be getting bigger! I gave my cat flea treatment two weeks ago and just caught two on the bed. She RARELY goes on the bed. it’s gross. We also don’t have carpets–only a few rugs and vacuum at least weekly. some of the rugs I wash DAILY. What can I do? I bought Advantage and it doesn’t work!!!
Just moved to SC from MI almost 3 months ago, I have never had an issue with fleas until now… even when I lived in NM I never had problem. I only have an indoor cat right now, noticed she was starting to scratch a bit. Thought she might have dry skin, so I gave her a spray bath, and using a flea comb because it works the spray in better. I found 2 fleas on her, bought Advantix II and applied it properly… this was only 3 weeks ago! I HAD to treat her again yesterday because it could not wait another week. So far i have found about 30 half dead fleas just on a white sheet in he bedroom I have her quarantined to for a day or two…. this crap obviously didnt kill the larvea. But since this is only the 2nd dose, we’ll see. I treated the yard this morning. I have yet to find a product safe for children and pets for indoor use on carpet/furniture. They’re all either toxic and need to sit for at least 24hrs, or like Premise was recommended up top… you arent supposed to vacuum for 2-3 weeks!??! Who the heck doesnt vacuum their home for that long?! That is completely out of the question, especially having a toddler who’ll eat cheerios off the floor like a dog, and good luck stopping it… then add FLEAS on top. I need to eradicate these little ba**ards like 3 weeks ago from my home. Any suggestions on a proven effective yard treatment, as well as carpet/furniture product. please and thank you!

Advantage Premise Flea Treatment Spray - Pet Supplies Plus
Topical products are gel-like substances that come in little pre-measured tubes. You apply the solution to your pet's neck, and you don't have to treat the household or surrounding areas. But before you try this approach, make sure you know what you are buying! Advantage, made by Bayer, is the only topical product that is tried and tested safe for rabbits that is available over the counter. Dr. Brick says that Advantage is "a lot less hassle than the other stuff," and adds that she considers it a safe product for adult bunnies (she has seen only rare topical reactions from using Advantage, and even then, it was nothing serious). In general, a very small or dwarf rabbit should be treated with half of a pre-filled tube for kittens or small cats; bigger rabbits can be given a full dose for appropriate weight. Because it takes a while for such topical flea treatments to disseminate through a dog or cat's coat, the HRS recommends that rabbits be kept apart from other animals that have been treated for at least 12 hours. Check with your veterinarian for specifics. Advantage was reformulated and is now labled as Advantage II. This new formulation has treatment for other parasites in addition to fleas. Although still generally safe for rabbits, some rabbits have shown more sensitivity to this new formula. Revolution, available only by prescription, treats fleas and mites safely.Advantage Treatment Spray contains the active ingredient Nylar, an insect growth regulator that kills larvae, and stops eggs from hatching into biting adult fleas. The second active ingredient is Pyrethrins, an insecticide that kills pests on contact, and the third active ingredient enhances the power of the Pyrethrins. In combination, these three powerful ingredients kill adult fleas and hatching fleas for 100 days, and continue to protect your pet by preventing the fleas' development into the biting stage.
