We have been using this for yrs. it has always worked even the one time he did have fleas. I used it on my border collie dog it’s easy to use but my dog hates it. And always tried to get away. There has been no side effects. I was told by the vet tho that the fleas are immune to it now tho.
Thought I would try Avantage flea treatment worked fast but only lasted 2weeks .Better to pay the extra price and buy Bravecto it really works and lasts 3 months .Great product
I have bought this a few times but I'm not sure if it really lasts a month, and I have a dog who is allergic to flea bites so it is pretty bad when we get them. I think he still gets the odd one and it hasn't been a month of using it so I'm not really certain of its effectiveness!
I gave my cavalier this topical when I found a few fleas on her. She has the flea bite allergy so she's miserable from one bite. I found a couple of live fleas two days later. I haven't found anymore but she's still pretty itchy. I don't know what to use..

Better than nothing
After using for the first time most of the fleas disappeared, much better that using nothing at all. Have seen a couple of them though.
I have used this product in the past effectively, moved house and after eight years have found the need to use it again, only problem was that my aging cat now 14 reacted badly to it. She was dry retching and running backwards and acting extremely depressed until 90 minutes later when I washed it off. It was there long enough to be effective and do it's job. Am worried about repeating it, but may do so by halving the amount to apply.
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
