Works alright but fleas work up an immunity after awhile
This actually worked really well for my cat up until a couple of months ago. I live in a unit and two of my neighbors use this also. Seems the fleas have built up an immunity to it though which I expected would happen after awhile. Will definitely go back to using it soon, hopefully by then it will work against our fleas again. Didn't affect my fur baby at all, he doesn't like the smell though as it is quite strong. As for all the negative reviews IT IS POISONOUS! DON'T LET YOUR CAT LICK IT!
After Frontline stopped working on my allergic to flea bites cat, I tried a couple of the other spot-ons before Advantage. Unlike the others, this one worked a treat. Within a day he'd stopped trying to scratch and lick his skin off, and in a week or so I noticed the areas of skin he'd chewed raw had healed and the fur start to grow back.
I've kept him on Advantage purple for 4 or 5 years now. It still works fine and I'm happy to pay a bit more for the peace of mind that the fleas are kept off him and he no longer suffers with irritation.
Dangerous product - my cat became very sick - needed to be hospitalised
My cat became very sick, sapped of life, no appetite, depressed, unable to walk for 3 weeks. Reaction to Moxidetrin.
Left burn mark, bald patch and then infection
Was working fine until one month there was a bald patch and burn like mark. It ended up becoming infected so we took him to the vet. He was given antibiotics. Will try flea collar as comfortis tablets are too big and the whole process is too difficult and protracted getting him to swallow the tablet.
Big cost and not entirely effective
Tried this product to rid us of flea infestation to no avail. Still found large adult fleas after 2-3 days of using drops. These fless showed no signs of slowing or dying and it was only 2-3 days after applying. Obviously doesn't stop reinfestation from pet's environment (and yes we threw out everything before application). Flea collar by seresto was only product to work.
I had high hopes. My house was not infected, just noticed some flea dirt. After putting the application on, i started to see fleas on surfaces, but not quite dead. I thought it was working..but 3 weeks later we still have fleas and they are no longer dying. Just like frontline, this product no longer works. Will be switching to pills instead.
Used frontline for weeks to clear up a bad flea infestation which got worse dad by day. Changed to advantage and fleas are gone. Couldn't recommend this product enough.
Worked well, quickly
This product worked quickly on my cat Molly, there were no side effects to it and easy to use. She has not shown signs of any fleas after using it a month ago.
It worked for two weeks but then I had to buy Comfortis.
Reduced number of fleas but had to buy another product in two weeks. I was disappointed that I had to spend another $50.
Very bad reaction
Please note: this review should be under advocate purple for large cats not advantage purple for large cats.
I'd been faithfully using this product each month since adopting our healthy 3yr old cat. Each time he was subdued after application but was behaving normally by morning. The last application was the scheduled 8th in 8 months. He was subdued again but the next day he was not normal. He is an outdoor cat, but didn't move from his overnight position. It was raining and cold so I only became concerned when I returned and suspected he hadn...

FLEA TREATMENT stopped working about a week after ..As I'm on a pension ..I won't be using this product again.
Burned my cat and left a spot with no fur
I have used this product on two cats and a dog for about 2 years with good results and no bad reaction apart from the fumes making the cats blink. The most recent time though left a burn type sore and bald patch on one cats back where it was applied. Now looking for another product with no side effects.
Cat stopped eating and drinking and ran a small fever as well as weakness and lethargy and spent 4 days at vets hospital weak unable to walk or stand much. Never found the reason and afraid to use again. Had panting for hours reaction to a related drug Capstar
Worked for 1 week then my Cat started scratching again
I purchased a single dose for my 5kg Cat. It stopped the scratching for a week then she started scratching again. I understand that initially it kills the adult fleas and takes longer to kill the eggs that hatch .. but isn't the treatment supposed to last 1 month. If this is the case, why didn't it kill the fleas that hatched a week or 2 or 3 later .. or the fleas that jumped on my Cat a week or 2 later. I'm thinking this treatment wears off after a week .. and if she starts scratching .. I would then need to apply it again rather than having h...er keep scratching for another 3 weeks before applying another dose. Have others found it doesn't kill fleas for a whole month? I don't get why the treatment wore off so quickly. ps. Don't know why I'm being generous by giving this dud 2 stars. It's a rip at that price. Stuffit .. changed to 1 star
Amazing after only 8 hours from application
Used other products but my oh my this Advantage works so quick . I feel relived and stress free . It got great reviews but it's excelled
. 5 stars plus it deserves. So happy my cat is now relaxed . It also kills any that jump onto your cat so no need to do your house with other products just give it a few days . Job done
Burned my Cat
I have used the product for many months. But the pack I started last week burnt my cat, she has a round sore on the back of her neck, and where the liquid has run down it has taken all her fur off. I did write to the company via their website but as yet they have not replied.
As good as paint stripper
First time I have used this product on my cat. After application my cat started drooling and running around the house shaking her head. Unfortunately where she had been shaking her head on our timber floors it has taken the varnish off our floors! Won't be buying this product again.
- Advantage for Cats Purple (Large Cats)
- Verified purchase
Works extremly well.
I was more than skeptical about products like this, tried it on her (Cat) and was amazed, No more Fleas, so easy to use and didn't notice any side effects from her at all, money well spent. not sure if i can say this but buy it online, a lot cheaper than in stores, way cheaper.
I used advantage after using another product that didn't do a thing....fleas were dead within hours and I have happy kitties Thank you!!
Works well but now my cat is ill
Put this on my cat the other day, and he seems to be having a bad reaction. He didn't finish his dinner that evening (which only happens if he's not well), and has been inside lying around for 3 days now. As an outdoor cat he's often gone all day, so this is very unusual behavior for him.
Questions & Answers
I’ve just got a 7 week old kitten ... is it safe to use advantage to treat fleas as I’ve seen a few in her since she arrives today?
Can I use the small cat doseon a 4.8 pound cat?
Did they change the smell of advantage 11? Got some online and smells like flowers and i dont remember it smelling like that.
