For Use on Indoor and Outdoor Dogs
Find the right treatment for your dog
Advantage II for dogs is for use on both indoor and outdoor dogs and puppies 7 weeks of age or older, weighing more than 3 pounds. If your puppy doesn’t yet weigh 3 pounds, speak to your veterinarian about your flea treatment options.
Use your dog’s current weight to determine which size is right for them.
If you have a growing puppy that may exceed the product’s weight guideline within a couple of months, consider purchasing a smaller pack count.
How to apply
Be sure to use the entire tube of Advantage II when applying it to your dog. Part the hair on your dog’s back between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin in 1-4 spots, depending on your dog’s weight.
See package insert for additional details.
How does it work?
Advantage II for dogs is a topical flea treatment that spreads over the skin and hair. Advantage II kills through contact, so fleas don’t have to bite your dog to die. With oral flea treatments, fleas must bite your dog and ingest the medication before they are killed.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to work on fleas?
Advantage II for dogs kills fleas within 12 hours of application.
Why do I still see fleas after using Advantage II?
The fleas you see on your pet today are not the same fleas that you initially saw when you applied the treatment. These are new fleas from the environment that have since developed into adults and jumped on your dog. As the weeks go by, these developing stages should run their course and disappear. Be sure to treat your pet’s environment, including your home, yard, carpet, bedding, etc.
Does it expire?
There is no expiration date required on the packaging by the EPA for Advantage II for dogs. The product should be kept in its original packaging and stored as directed on the label.
What are the key ingredients?
Advantage II for dogs contains two active ingredients: imidacloprid, which attacks the flea’s nervous system, to paralyze and kill it, and pyriproxyfen, which prevents eggs and larvae from maturing.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It worked immediately, and after about 3 days they were mostly gone, and now it has been a week. The product says you can reapply after a week if needed to get under control, which is good to know if they pop back up.
YOU MUST follow the directions and put in several spots down the back. Maybe people just put on the neck that wrote the bad reviews? Or didn't reapply to get the problem under control? I for one know this product works wonderful!!! So happy with it!
Now on to the product. It works very well. We were using Frontline but it did not work. AT ALL. Our dog was getting ticks, our cats and dog had fleas. We used Frontline religiously and it just didn't perform. We ended up with a really bad flea infestation in our home and we needed to take action as multiple flea baths and house treatment were not helping. We finally switched to advantage II. Weary about the reviews we applied it to our animals in the proper dosage, size, and areas. Read, read and re-read the instructions. There are specific ways to apply this for specific animals. There are also specific sizes that you purchase depending on the type and weight of your animal. YOU NEED TO READ! Within two weeks after we treated our house with products known as permethrin and I.G. regulators as well as using Bayer Advantage II we completely got rid of our flea problem. Its now been months since we have had the problem and we haven't found a single flea on our animals. This stuff just hands down works. I would recommend to anybody and I'm going to keep purchasing it because I never want to have fleas in my home again. Its well worth the price.
UPDATE: Its now been 5 years since my original review and we still use this. We have not had a single flea issue since my original review. Our animals are safe and healthy. Be aware that there are counterfeits on Amazon. There are articles on the internet of what to check for. If you are concerned, purchase it from your vet or Chewy.
We've battled the flea problem and have tried for two years using "natural methods" such as sprinkling baking soda on the carpets, various other natural powders that are sold in pet stores, dog collars, and even an amber collar, and nothing ever worked.
After just one Advantage II treatment vile, in about 8 hours, the fleas were gone. It has now been 7 weeks since October 1st, when I applied it, and there's been no sign of fleas since. I trust the name Bayer, since they've been around all my life, which is why I finally decided to try using their product.
Living in the northern USA, we've now experienced some very cold freezing weather, and I'd imagine that the flea season is over until next spring, so one application was enough to do the trick this year.
Myself and the dog are both happy with the results. "Simon" has had no ill effects by the use of this product and in fact was very relieved to get rid of the fleas. If he could talk, which it almost seems as though he can at times, he would have said 'It is about time you gave me something that worked Dad"
I highly recommend it, especially for pets with thick coats.
