Pet Size

Don't know your pet's weight?

If you can't get them on the scale, try this super simple method:

  1. Weigh yourself.
  2. Weigh yourself holding your pet.
  3. Subtract the two numbers to get their weight.

Too heavy to hold? Your vet will weigh them if you ask (or may already have it on file if you call).


No Prescription Required

  • Description

    Dog and cat owners looking for an effective flea medication need look no further than Advantage for pets from Bayer. Advantage flea medicine is one of the best topical flea applications for dogs and cats, and it can even be used for pet rabbits as well. What makes it such an effective flea medication is the way it kills upwards of 98% of present fleas within 12 hours of initial application and provides that relief from fleas for up to one month following application. Advantage for pets also kills flea larvae, which prevents fleas from easily being able to recolonize themselves on your pet.

    It is a medication that kills flea larvae within 20 minutes of contact, and then inhibits larval development in your pet’s surroundings by more than 99%. Advantage flea medicine is also a water-resistant flea spray and so your pet can get wet immediately following application or anytime after. This reliable flea medication is available in different dosage strengths for pets of different body weights and with different application quantities. You can count on Advantage to be your go-to flea killer medication in the same way thousands of other pet owners do.

    Advantage for pets is also used to kill chewing lice for dogs and cats.


    Apply the entirety of each application package at the base of your pet’s skull at the top of their neck and directly onto the skin by parting the animal’s fur. Try to avoid superficial application, and only one application per treatment is needed.




    This topical flea medication is for external use only and is not to be used with puppies under seven weeks of age. You must also consult with your veterinarian before beginning the use of Advantage with debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals. Also, be aware that some pets may show themselves to be sensitive to the use of this product and if that’s the case you should cease using Advantage immediately. Plus, if your pet is taking any other medication it is best to discuss possible interaction risks with your veterinarian before beginning the use of Advantage.


    There are no known interaction risks between the use of Advantage II for pets and any other Rx pet medication but it is recommended to discuss all medications your pet is currently taking when speaking with your veterinarian about flea medication.

    Side Effects

    Side effects from use of Advantage for pets are uncommon, but may include skin irritation, gastrointestinal issues like vomiting, diarrhea or hypersalivation, and lethargy. If any of these symptoms continue or worsen you should see a veterinarian.
