Advocate for Cats is a convenient way to protect your cat. As a spot-on product, it means none of the fuss that’s involved in trying to get your cat to take a tablet. Each application spreads rapidly over your cat, killing 98-100% of adult fleas within 12 hours of an application and killing flea larvae via transfer to the cat's environment.
After application, Moxidectin enters your cat's bloodstream and, with monthly use, will prevent heartworm and ear mite infection. Advocate for Cats is highly effective as a single application.
Advocate for Cats provides superb treatment for both internal and external parasites in cats. One application treats any existing parasite infection and protects against new infection, as the treatment will last for four weeks.

How to Apply Advocate for Cats
The recommended application is one pipette of Advocate spot-on solution per animal. Do not exceed the recommended application.
Remove one pipette from the package, hold the pipette in an upright position and twist and pull off the cap. Reverse the cap, and use it to twist and remove the seal from the pipette. Part the fur on the cat's neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette firmly several times to empty its contents directly onto the skin. Application at the base of the skull will minimise the opportunity for the animal to lick the product.
Contra-Indications and Warnings: Do not use on kittens under nine weeks of age or weighing less than one kilogram. Do not use in the case of hypersensitivity to the active substances or in sick and debilitated animals. The product is bitter tasting and thus salivation may occasionally occur if the animal licks the application site immediately after treatment. This is not a sign of intoxication and disappears within some minutes without treatment. Correct application will minimise licking of the application site.
The use of the product may result in itching, and on rare occasions, greasy fur, redness of the skin and vomiting can occur. Contact your vet if you notice any unwanted or worrying side effects.
