Pharmacists are standing by to offer Pet Parent counseling regarding prescription medication purchased from Allivet before and after dispensing. Pharmacists on duty are available Monday-Friday, 9:30AM - 5:30PM EST and will be on call Saturday 12:00PM - 4:00PM EST for consultation.


The recommended minimum dose is 4.5 mg/lb (10.0 mg/kg) imidacloprid and 0.45 mg/lb (1.0 mg/kg) moxidectin, once a month, by topical administration.

Do not apply to irritated skin.

1. Remove one dose applicator tube (tube) from the package. As specified in the following table, administer the entire contents of the Advantage Multi® for Cats tube that correctly corresponds with the body weight of the cat.                             tubes.                                                                                                                                                                                                        * Cats over 18 lbs. should be treated with the appropriate combination of Advantage Multi for Cats

2. While holding the tube in an upright position, remove the cap from the tube.

3. Turn the cap over and push the other end of cap onto the tip of the tube.

4. Twist the cap to break the seal and then remove cap from the tube.

5. Part the hair on the back of the cat’s neck at the base of the head, until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and apply the entire contents directly on the exposed skin. Lift tube away from skin before releasing pressure on tube.

Do not get this product in the cat’s mouth or eyes or allow the cat to lick the application site for 30 minutes. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for ingestion by grooming. In households with multiple pets, keep animals separated to prevent licking of the application site.

Stiff, matted hair or a damp, oily appearance of the hair may be observed at the application site on some cats. This is temporary and does not affect the safety and effectiveness of the product.
