Borderasked

Used advocate for first time on 6 month old cross Persian kitten. Six hours later running around very unsettled and scratching all over body. Previous months used revolution with no reaction. Now trying to rest he is breathing very fast. Kitten is blue and my border collie blue pups had similar reaction to Advantix but not advocate.

Sounds like an allergy so I wouldn't use it again. My guess is that such a reaction its very unusual as I have used Advocate many times on my cat and several dogs with no adverse effects whatsoever.

It makes my Mainecoon cat very ill. Within 1 - 2 days use he begins vomitting violently - all through my house wont eat , dribbles. It happened multiple times before I realised this was the cause. I definetly wont be using it again. I recommend doing some research & maybe speak to a few vets to see if they can recommend safer alternatives. Hope he feels better soon :(

My dog - 7 years old and 5kg - suffered hair loss last time I provided her treatment with Advocate for small dogs. This happened about 2 years ago also. The leaflet says hair will grow back - and it is - but she is due for her next monthly treatment in w week - and her hair is still growing back. Is it OK to treat her again with the product or should I use something else?

Its scary it makes hair fall out. My dog hasnt had this issue. But last cat dose I gave my cat he vomittied violently all through my house for 2 days. So from my experience id probably wait a while before giving more.. maybe call your vet for advice. :)

Use flea powder for the next three days and then use it just to be on the safe side.

Advocate Purple (Large Cat)

I used this on my cat about 2 weeks ago and while the fleas left, the poor little think was so irritated yesterday and I realised she has a complete bald patch about 2cm wide and about 3cm long (her hair is quite thick to the point you can barely see skin when you part the fur, usually) and greasy skin with red bumps on the exact place I put the treatment... This was the first time we used this product, other products have been fine. Has anyone else had this happen?

I’ve had the exact same problem happen this month with my cat. I’ve been using advocate for years though and this is the first time he has got a bald spot after it’s application. The only thing I did differently was put it abit further down than usual on his neck/back. I’ve put some betadine on his skin so hopefully that helps .. Did your cats bald spot recover?

Rachel M.
Rachel M.

It took months for my cat to recover it actually kept getting worse, more hair fell out over that week and the irritation spread & it turned out to be a chemical burn that was literally eating away at her skin :( it had to be treated with a steroid cream & antibiotic I’ll never use a spot treatment again! I researched chemical burn from flee treatment and while it doesn’t happen all the time when it does it’s quite bad.. Her hair has all grown back now and no irritation on her! I’m not sure if the placement had anything to do with it as her hair is so thick it was placed on lower neck but either way it really shouldn’t cause such reactions.. Is your cat ok did the betadine work?

I don't have a packet, need to find out before I buy it. I googled it too and have read conflicting reports which is why I asked on here.

I was advised by the vet not to wash my dog for 5days after applying the advocate so most likely you cant bring your dog to swim with you for five days. maybe after.

Advocate Blue (Medium Dog)

I gave my dog her treatment and three hours later she jumped in a river. She was not fully submerged and only felt slightly damp on her back. Will the advocate have worked. We are also now in Devon where ticks are rife should I give her another treatment. Thanks Helen

I accidently used advocate for small dogs between 4-10kg on my puppy instead of the puppy up to 4kg. Is this likely to cause him any harm? I noticed it's 2.5 times the dose on the pamphlet.

Advocate Purple (Large Cat)

My 4kg cat is very skittish and difficult to apply drops onto in order to empty the pipette completely.
Is it okay & still effective to split the pipette between 2 days? E.G half dose first day and remainder the next?

Advocate Blue (Medium Dog)

My daughter has accidentally put medium dog advocate on our large dog ( luckily not the other way around). Does this mean she won’t be protected this month as obviously if I put the large dose on now she will be overdosed. Would we be able to put another medium dog on her or is it just not worth the risk?

Advocate Grey (Extra Large Dog)

I am fostering a 3.5 yr old mixed breed shepherd/am. staffordshire/bull terrier/mix. 64 lbs=29.03kg. Heart worm positive adult and microfilaria. Last blood test showed no more microfilaria (dirofilaria?). 3/7/19 she received her first treatment and spent the day at the vet in case there was a reaction. Only lethargic. Today 3/21/19 I applied a second treatment as I was instructed and will apply monthly from now on. My question is will this treatment be enough to kill the adult heartworms and keep them from producing young??? The Advocate box I have shows a shepherd and bernard on the front.
