Good product.

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

Advantage Flea Control for Dogs is pretty good at preventing your poor dog from getting nibbled on by fleas. It's one of the better flea products I have found for my dog. He seems to have easily irritated skin and most products will cause him to scratch like crazy. This one doesn't bother his skin at all though.

It's simple and quick to apply and lasts for 30 days. One thing I don't like is the area does stay wet for a while so you have to make sure your dog doesn't rub it off or lick it off. It doesn't take incredibly long to dry though. Like I said before it doesn't irritate my dogs skin like the other flea products I have tried. I use Advantage Flea Control for Dogs in the summer time when my dog seems to get fleas the worst. It lasts the full 30 days as it promises.

I order the product online because that is where I have found it to be the cheapest.

I highly recommend Advantage Flea Control for Dogs. It won't irritate your dogs skin and will prevent fleas for 30 days.

EDIT: The past few doses of this I have purchased have not been as effective. I think they may have altered the ingredients somewhat. The flea repelling power only lasts a fraction of the time now!

Advantage Flea Control for Dogs stops fleas dead!

By 

from Canton, OH

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

Advantage Flea Control for Dogs is in my opinion the best flea treatment on the market. It is long lasting and fast acting. It starts working pretty much immediately and is very effective. I've tried other products and nothing compares. This product will wipe fleas out completely. Because it kills eggs and larvae as well. It also controls ticks. And the price is manageable. There are other products that claim to be similar in effectiveness. But this product is the best for me and my dogs flea treatment needs.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients in this flea medication are the best and most effective on the market in my opinion. I haven't found anything that is nearly as effective as Advantage Flea Control for Dogs. It seems far superior to any other product available.

Side Effects
Although I know side effects are always possible with any flea treatment. Thankfully I haven't had any side effects at all with my dog. I have had problems with other flea medications.

Works WOnderfully

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

I have used this flea control product with my dog buddy, and it was very effective at keeping him flea free. I like the fact that it comes in a tube which is easy to apply at the base of the dog's neck, as well as the fact that it is available in three different dosages to accomodate pets of all sizes.
Buddy didn't mind it at all, and did not experience any type of side effects. I also like the fact that it works for 30 days and is waterproof. My dog is always getting into something, and at least I know the flea control product is working no matter what he decides to get into for the day.
All of the ingredients inside are quality and approved by the FDA. it is a pesticide, but many studies say that it is safe and I cannot tell that it has caused any type of damage or health issues with my pet.

Side Effects
Buddy did not experience any side effects whatsoever when I used Advantage for Dogs. In fact, after I put it on I think that he forgot all about it.

Worked great for our two dogs in Southern California

By 

from Texas

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

We have two dachshunds that weigh around 15 pounds. We've used Advantage Flea Control on them in the past, but usually we only need to apply it during the warmer summer months here in Southern California which is when the fleas tend to be active in our yard. But Advantage does what its suppose to do. It keeps the fleas off our little dogs and keeps them outside where they belong. We had tried inexpensive brands comparable to Advantage, most recently Costco's Kirkland brand, but none have worked as well as Advantage. The solution goes on a little messy on the back of the neck of our dogs, but usually within a few hours it is completely absorbed into their skin and coat. Advantage can be a little pricey, but it is worth it. I have also read that you can buy the large dog pack and only use half a bottle on smaller dogs, which saves you money. I never tried that though.

Quality of Ingredients
It uses a whole bunch of chemicals that I've never heard of. They are pesticides that kill bugs, so I don't know the quality or how good they could be.

Side Effects
I never noticed any side affects on our dogs.

great

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

I have been using Advantage Flea Control for Dogs this whole year on my multi-poodle, and it seems to work great. I switched to a cheaper brand of flea control, but it did not work as well as the Advantage brand. My dog always suffers with fleas year round so if I don't give her Advantage she is constantly scratching. Fleas, and flea eggs are my main concern to treat off my dog this product treats both in each use. One treatment last for 30 days before I need to treat my dog again so it's very practical for me, and does not cost a lot. This product is fast acting, and will start to kill fleas immediately on contact. My dog hasn't had any side effects when I follow the directions correctly. Usually my dog gets red rashes on her skin if I put a different topical flea treatment, but with Advantage I have not noticed any red rashes. This product is easy to use I would recommend talking to your vet or local pet store if your unsure how to use it for your dog. I choose to buy this Advantage Flea Control online, but occasionally I will buy this in store if I have a coupon.

Works Great!

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

We have used Advantage for years now,. When we lived In San Diego we had a terrible flea problem. The dampness of the city being close to the bay was a breeding ground for fleas. Once we tried Advantage our dogs flea problems went away. It is hard to see your dog so uncomfortable all the time. I know I hated it when I got a flea bite. So I can't even imagine what it would be like to have a bunch of them on you at one time biting you. We have continued to use Advantage even though we now live closer to the desert. It still works great.

Advantage is very easy to use. Just a dab or two every 3 months after a bath they are flea free. The price has come down since it first came out so it is now affordable. Small price to pay for your pets comfort as well as yours.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients are high quality and keep the fleas off my dog like they advertise.

Side Effects
My dogs have not had any side effects from the use of Advantage.

Works well

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

I could see the product working within an hour. Dead fleas were dropping right off the dog in that time. The dog seemed very relieved and itched alot less in a very short period of time.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients stated on packaging are not pesticides.

Side Effects
The only thing I noticed was the dog seemed a little tired and rested comfortably.

Advantage has withstood the test

By 

from USA

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

Advantage is one of the only spot on flea products that has been around the longest and it continues to work. It is very easy to use and it works! I like that it stops the fleas from biting within minutes and keeps killing fleas for a month. I also like that the fleas do not have to bite my pet for it to work. (With pills that go through the bloodstream, the flea has to bite the pet to get the drug and be killed.) The only downside to a topical is that it does stay wet for a while and some pets try to roll around on the floor or try to lick it off, so you have to keep them distracted for a while. This is the only product I use and trust.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredient in Advantage is unique and is not found in any other spot on flea product. You really get what you pay for here, so don't waste your money on something else.

Side Effects
Having worked at a vet clinic, I am aware that there is the rare side effect. This includes a local reaction, such as redness, a welt, or hair loss where it was applied. I never saw any serious side effects with Advantage like I did with other products.

Does the job and at less cost compare to others.

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

I have been using Advantage Flea control forever and I cant say anything bad about this. The product is well package and cheap as compare to other flee control out there. I would recommend this to anyone that needs it and they are so easy to use. Just pop the top and you are ready to go, no hard to open tops and you dont need a knife or anything. Never got fleas with this and it does not drive my dog crazy which is important. I also like the smell of this better than anyother flea control out there. I have try some no names one which you can buy at some drug stores, and they dont work plus they smell bad. So dont waste your money on anything else and buy some Advantage the next time you need some flea contorl for your dog.

So far so good

Comments about Advantage Flea Control for Dogs:

My recently adopted rescue dog came home with fleas and worms..I only realized this after a trip to the vet with a heft bill and an expensive dose of Frontline. After reading some online reviews and doing a little research on the different brands of monthly flea control products for dogs, I decided to give advantage a try. It seemed like the safest product (some of the other leading products had some extremely dramatic effects on dogs). So, I applied Advantage on my dog and observed his reaction. He seemed a little hyper (more so than usual) that night and he carried around a slight chemical-like smell for a day or two. He's been flea free so I'm assuming the formula is working. I just have to make a conscious effort to make sure I apply the treatment in the morning and make sure I have a long day of exercised planned.
