Advocate provides clear advantages for pet owners and veterinarians:
Broad protection against common internal and external parasites in dogs and cats. And it has been developed by Bayer HealthCare, the solution provider and leader in quality for efficient and cost effective parasite control. It comes as no surprise, then, that Advocate offers a whole range of important advantages never before combined in one product:
It controls all stages of hook- and roundworms – even the pre-adult forms.
Advocate safeguards not only pets, but owners and their families against the threat of zoonosis, caused by nematode transmission from infected pets. It is also safe and reliable insurance against heartworms – in many countries a key issue for pet protection.
Advocate® is well tolerated in Puppies of 7 weeks and older and Kittens of 9 weeks and older. Tolerated up to 5 times the recommended tube size with no serious safety concerns when applied every 2 weeks for 6 treatments.
Advocate® combines the power of the two active ingredients imidacloprid and moxidectin, both well established antiparasiticides with proven efficacy.
Moxidectin penetrates through the skin, enters the bloodstream, and distributes in all organs. It acts systemically, targeting endoparasites and mites.
Imidacloprid spreads in the water resistant lipid layer of the skin’s surface and acts topically, targeting ectoparasites.
