Within 12 hours of applying Advantage to my dog he became restless, agitated and was jumping at his own shadow. Soon after, he started eating grass and vomiting, so was obviously nauseous. The agitation lasted for over 24 hours, and the vomiting went on day and night for 4 solid days, he got us up through the night to take him out so he could eat grass and vomit.
It got rid of the fleas, but we got horrible side effects.
I'm going to try natural remedies from this point forward and will try and avoid putting chemicals on my dog at all costs. I...

Terrible..do not recommend.
We put on as directed about 2 hours later, our dog shiztu bichon became agitated, running, rolling, panting, scratching, crying and no appetite drinks when water is put in front of him, this is now 3 full days he hasn’t stopped . We took him back to the vet and he was give allergy medication and he’s had 4 pills and no relief.
I highly do not recommend this product.

The last 3 weeks I sit beside her and I constantly coma with a sleek home I'm still taking off life fleas off her body at the bath after colors after advantage 2 I called bear they told me to go back to the vet and get more product the same product and get some for my cats and no offer of replacing it for free or anything like that this is a terrible product my dog is so infested she has blisters all over his stomach I'm so disappointed it's heartbreaking.

Irritated my dogs skin
Do not buy this!
My poor 6month old pup was irritated by this all afternoon, was acting so strange and he was so uncomfortable, we had to wash him and we will again on the morning.
My vet friend said she never recommends this and it can be very irritable for your pets skin. I feel terrible our poor pup was in pain and irritated by this all afternoon!
They shouldn’t be selling it if it does this to lots of pets.

Recent Purchase at My Pet Warehouse
I recently purchased this product for my two dogs. This product does not work and was very disappointing with no effect to either dog. I highly recommend that you do not waste your money.
I have tried the flea collar and the spot on ointment on my small dog. They didn't work, Bayer products are a waste of money!
Waste of money!
Would never buy this product again. Never had an issue with advocate or activyl. Less than 3 weeks of using this, my dog scratched his skin red raw and I had to remove 3 fleas. I was advised I didn't need to wait 4 weeks to use another pipette (in fact apparently I could use weekly!!!!). After using another pipette last Sunday, we are now on Friday I have today removed another 2 fleas and he has been scratching all week. Terrible product!
My dog suffered a chemical burn
I have a 12 year old husky and have always used either frontline or advantage. This time I used advantage. After five days we noticed a nasty spot right where I applied the medicine. Her thick fur covered it. We put her in the tub to rinse it and her hair began to fall out. It was a mass of stinky green gunk. I will never ever use a topical on any of my animals.
The vet applied Advantage to my new puppy within days of her coming home and the fleas not only persisted, but multiplied in number. This product failed completely, despite a very experienced vet applying it according to directions.
This product does not work I have used it several times & my dogs still have fleas I had followed instructions & bathed them in flea shampoo 2 days before & sprayed their kennels & put brand new bedding in & they still got fleas
Manufacturer merged with Monsanto
The manufacturer of this product Bayer has recently merged with Monsanto. I will avoid all products by Bayer from now on. Some other products by Bayer are Advantix, Advocate, Drontal, Kiltix, Seresto and Vetadine but there are more.
Ineffective and a complete waste of money and time.
I wish I read the reviews before buying the product. We have a 9.5 kg West Highland White Terrier (Westie) and bought the Advantage Flea treatment for dogs 4 - 10 kg. We applied the treatment as per the directions on the pack. It is supposed to be reapplied on a monthly basis but less than three weeks later, whilst having our westie groomed, the groomer noticed active fleas on our Westie. Our Groomer also mentioned that Advantage burnt her Westie's skin and she now uses an oral treatment (our vet also recommended that oral treatment). I suggest that Bayer Advantage is a complete waste of time and money. I would not recommend this product and strongly recommend you look at alternatives.
Doesn't do anything. Made a phone call and all they told me don't take your dogs to the woods joke!
It's a joke advantage used to be good but not now made a phone call and they told me no woods for the dogs what a joke. I made another call and they said they would send me some more but they sent it to my vet 1 packet I spent 200 pounds on this product in the last 2 months. What a joke as I am 66 years young. Don't buy advantage they are rubbish, the staff are too.
Questions & Answers
Do I need something for worming while using Advantage?
I used Advantage flea control last night & the fleas are still running around on my dog this morning, can you tell me how long it should take to kill the fleas.?Thanks
In my review, I said ADVANTAGE never did work.
The only one to actually work was COMFORTIS.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for your reply, she is still scratching a bit but I think it is working, can't see any on her tummy. I don't really think I would like to use Comfortis, if I don't have too, I once gave my last dog tablets for fleas & he developed stomach cancer, not saying it was the tablets but it has made me a bit weary. Thanks for your reply.
I was using advantage and my dog was riddled with fleas I took her to the vet and he said they can become immune to advantage! I am so annoyed because it is so expensive and it's no good to me now as I always brought it 6 monthly!! My vet gave her another flea killer and said they should drop off at the end of the night which they did but she had to get a shot of cortisone for the pain she was in!! Hope this helps
