Advantage Multi (Advocate) is a great treatment that offers heartworm disease prevention in dogs. Apart from being a solid heartworm preventative, Advantage Multi helps in getting rid of adult fleas through contact (which means, it does not have to bite or feed on your dog to get killed). Besides, the topical treatment treats flea infestations as well as worms like hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms. This monthly solution also helps in treating a skin mite which is known as sarcoptes. Moreover, the treatment is safe for all dog and puppy breeds.
How It Works
Advantage Multi (Advocate) is made up of key ingredients known as Imidacloprid and Moxidectin. Imidacloprid gets absorbed through the flea’s skin where it acts on the nervous system, which results in the ultimate destruction of the parasite. It also assists in getting rid of them through contact. Moxidectin, on the other hand, kills tiny heartworms by preventing them to grow into adult heartworms. It also erases various kinds of worms by disrupting the nerve transmission and paralyzing the parasite.
