Two of my cats are very allergic to flea bites and were looking and feeling pretty bad until I used Advantage. Within a day of treating all of the cats, there were fewer live fleas on the cats and most of the remaining fleas were dying. I have to note that none of my cats had any allergic reaction from the treatment. A couple of them scratched and licked as fleas came up to the surface, but I kept combing the dying fleas out and the scratching/licking stopped fairly quickly. It's been a week, and the two who are allergic to flea bites are looking better, and none of the cats are licking and scratching.
Of course, I treated the carpets and furniture and pet bedding and sweep the floors regularly, so combined with the Advantage treatments, the flea infestation is now under control. Let's hope it stays that way!
An added bonus for me was that each tube of Advantage opened quietly and application was easy. The flea drops also didn't have a strong smell, unlike some other treatments I've used. That helped out a lot - no tracking down the cats or coaxing them from underneath furniture.
(I used both Advantage II for cats under 9 pounds and over 9 pounds. This review is the same for both doses.)
Great stuff works quicker then the older Advantage. I have an older cat with thinning hair and in less then 5 minutes fleas were surfacing but unlike the older stuff these fleas were dizzy and in their last throws, they barely made it to the top of his thin hair and died. Great stuff and my cat hasn't scratched since.
Also this may only apply to a select few but the tubes when you open them are silent now instead of making a little noise. I write this because my cat became very aware of this sound and knew it was coming, hated it, hated me for a week, and tried to lick it.
This time with a little milk and my silent tube I was able to apply it to his neck without him knowing.
If I need to talk with a vet about an over the counter product then perhaps the product should not be over the counter!
You put the product at the base of the cat's skull, right around where their collar sits, so that they can't lick it. This morning I found that the product had somehow reacted with my cat's collar and formed some sort of glue/tar that had stuck her fur to her collar.
I have uploaded a picture of what happened. She is a little white cat who had a cute little black collar, but now she has a nice patch of black tar hair that will need to be shaved off in order to ever get it off of her. Water doesn't seem to get it to come out and maybe some heavy washing will get it to fade (I hope)
My recommendation would be to take off any collar and wait for the product to dry a bit before putting the collar back on, if possible.
I have used original Advantage on them for years with fine results. However, I CANNOT say the same for Advantage II.
It appears Bayer's patent expired on original Advantage so they concocted the new and "improved" Advantage II. Well, the hair on the back of my cats' necks falls out where the Advantage II makes contact with their skin about 2 days after I apply it. And, they keep scratching as if they have fleas. This NEVER happened with original Advantage.
This occurred both times I used Advantage II to all 4 cats so I know the first application was not a fluke. I am not happy with the new Advantage II and am looking for an alternative. It obviously is causing harm to my cats and is not as effective. This has been my experience. Your mileage may vary.

Honestly, the flies start to come again after not even 2 weeks. The effect of the product does not last even 3 weeks, I'm a bit disappointed.Published 8 hours ago by Amazon Customer

Not sure it works. Saw a flea on my cat yesterday, caught it so not sure it would have died if I left it. Didn't want to take the chance. Read morePublished 21 hours ago by oldcat
