Product information

What is Advocate used for in dogs, cats and ferrets?

Advocate can be used in dogs and cats to prevent common parasites such as fleas, roundworms, hookworms, heartworms, mites and lice. It also offers long-term protection against the deadly heartworm disease in dogs. In cats, Advocate is effective at controlling adult fleas and preventing the development of flea eggs. Additionally, it helps protect cats against common intestinal worms and can help treat certain skin diseases.

Advocate is an easy-to-use spot-on solution that provides effective protection for your pet against these parasites. It can be used as a monthly preventative or as needed, depending on your pet's needs.

What parasites does Advocate protect against?

Advocate protects against fleas, roundworms, hookworms, heartworms, and mites in dogs, cats and ferrets. Additionally, it is effective at controlling adult fleas and preventing the development of flea eggs in cats. In dogs, it provides long-term protection against heartworm disease which can be deadly.

How does Advocate work?

Advocate utilizes a unique mode of action to combat parasites. It contains two key active ingredients: imidacloprid and moxidectin. Imidacloprid targets fleas' nervous systems, killing them rapidly upon contact and preventing their reproduction by stopping the development of flea eggs. It also eliminates flea larvae found in the pet's surroundings, breaking the flea life cycle. Moxidectin, on the other hand, acts against heartworm larvae, effectively preventing heartworm disease. It also targets and controls various intestinal worms by paralyzing and eliminating them. Additionally, Advocate effectively treats and controls dogs' ear mites and sarcoptic mange.

Is Advocate safe for my pet?

Yes. Advocate has been proven to be safe for use in dogs, cats and ferrets when used as directed, and is an effective tool for controlling parasites in your pet. It is administered directly onto the pet's skin and can provide long-lasting protection against harmful parasites. However, consult with your veterinarian before administering Advocate. They can assess your pet’s needs and ensure that Advocate is the right product for them.

How do I apply Advocate for dogs and cats?

Advocate should be applied as a single spot-on application directly onto the pet's skin, between the shoulder blades. Always follow your veterinarian's instructions on how and when to apply Advocate for your pet. Do not give more than one application of Advocate at any one time, or use in combination with other flea and tick products. In addition, you should always wash your hands after administering Advocate.

What are the side effects of Advocate for pets?

Advocate is generally well tolerated by both dogs, cats and ferrets however, mild local reactions may occur at the site of application. In rare cases, some animals may experience irritation or sensitivity to Advocate. If you notice any signs of skin irritation or other side effects after use, contact your veterinarian as soon as possible.

Can I get Advocate for dogs or cats without a vet prescription?

No, it is illegal to obtain Advocate for pets without a valid prescription from a veterinarian. Furthermore, giving your pet any medication without proper guidance and instructions can be dangerous and potentially life-threatening. Consult your vet before starting any medication regimen with your pet.

Once you get a prescription, you can purchase Advocate from online pharmacies (such as HealthExpress). You can also get Advocate directly from the veterinarian clinic or a high street pharmacy. However, the price of Advocate may be higher in one of those places.

How do I place an order for Advocate for my pet at HealthExpress?

When you have a prescription from your vet, select the prescribed dosage and quantity and place the order online. You will then need to post your pet's prescription to us. Once we have received your prescription, the details will be checked by our pharmacist. Then, the treatment will be sent to your chosen address.
