Advocate for Dogs prevents flea infestations as well as gastrointestinal worm infections. It controls intestinal worms including roundworms, whipworms, and hookworms. Advocate is a topical spot-on treatment that not only destroys multiple parasites, but also prevents heartworm infection in puppies and dogs. Furthermore, Advocate controls sarcoptic mange, Demodex mites and ear mites present in dogs. This monthly topical treatment is also water-resistant and fastest flea control product.
It has to be applied monthly for best results.
Method of working:
Imidachoprid and Moxidectin are the active ingredients in Advocate. The ingredients in Advocate kill parasites by hindering their neurotransmissions. Central nervous system of the parasites is attacked, which results in the disruption of invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This results in paralysis and ultimately destroys them. 98-100% fleas are killed within 12 hours of application. Advocate kills fleas on contact, so dogs don't suffer painful bites, reducing the incidence of Flea Allergy Dermatitis. The spot-on not only kills adult worms but also kills larval and immature stages of roundworms and hookworms. The treatment is effective for a month and halts the growth of fleas.
Advocate is safe to use on puppies of 7 weeks or older.
Monthly application of Advocate helps protect your dog against a broad spectrum of parasites.
An easy-to-use spot-on, Advocate is applied monthly to both help rid your dog of existing parasites and provide ongoing protection. The powerful ingredients in Advocate provide fast relief from fleas, prevent deadly heartworm and help protect your dog and your family from most intestinal worms including roundworms, hookworms and whipworm.
The active ingredient effective against fleas, imidacloprid, spreads across your dog's skin and coat within 12 hours. After this time, re-infesting fleas are affected within 3-5 minutes of contact with your dog, and killed within 1 hour. Unlike chewable tablets, the active ingredient is not absorbed into your dog's bloodstream, so fleas are killed on contact without the need for a blood meal. As your dog naturally sheds their skin and fur, tiny imidacloprid crystals are also shed into the environment, killing flea larvae, and breaking the flea lifecycle.

Comprehensive heartworm and intestinal worm protection
Most wormers only kill adult worms in the intestines at the time of treatment, but this doesn't solve the problem. Larvae migrate through your dog's body causing damage, and along with the immature adults, soon mature into adults, not only causing harm to your dog, but also leading to environmental contamination from egg shedding before the next treatment. This puts you and your family at risk too!
Advocate not only kills adult roundworms and hookworms, but also immature adult and larval stages of these worms, breaking the lifecycle. What's more, Advocate kills all species of important intestinal nematode worms found in Australian dogs, unlike many other products, providing comprehensive protection from these worms.
Between treatments with many products, dogs can be re-infected with heartworms and intestinal worms. With regular monthly use, Advocate reaches a steady state, providing continuous protection from heartworm and intestinal worms between doses. Only topically applied moxidectin in Advocate has this unique feature, giving you peace of mind your dog is fully protected against these parasites.
Before applying Advocate, make sure your dog is standing during treatment. Remove your dog's collar, and put it back on after the product is dry - except if your dog is wearing a Seresto collar. You don't need to remove it when applying Advocate.
Avoid applying the treatment near the eyes or mouth area as this may cause irritation. Bathe your dog before application, and apply Advocate when your dog is completely dry.
Record the treatment date, and repeat monthly.
Remove the required tubes from the packet. Hold the tube upright and away from you, and pull off the cap.
Reverse the cap and push the cap back on the tube. Twist the cap to break the seal, and then remove the cap from the tube.
Squeeze the tube firmly twice and apply the solution directly on the skin. For dogs under 25 kg, apply between the shoulder blades. For dogs 25-40 kg, apply by dividing the dose between the shoulder blades, on the midline of the back between the hips, and at one point in between.
Get your pet tested for an existing heartworm infection. After consulting the vet start the treatment. Weigh your pet and choose the relevant pack from the four colour-coded packs available. Refer dosage table for details.
Let the pet stand in a comfortable position. Make a bare skin spot at a point between the shoulder blades and the base of the neck.
Place the tip of the open pipette on the bare skin spot. Press the pipette and pour out the entire content of the liquid on the spot. Allow it to dry.
For small dogs, spot-on application needs to be done at one place while for larger dogs apply at 3-4 spots starting from base of skull and move across the backbone.
Do not allow children and pets to groom the treated pet until the application site is dry. Safety of Advocate is not confirmed for breeding, pregnant and lactating pets. Consult your vet before using it on pets going through these stages.
