How do I use Advantage® Treatment Shampoo for Cats & Kittens?

It’s easy to use Advantage® Treatment Shampoo for Cats & Kittens. Simply follow these Advantage® shampoo directions:

  1. Wet your cat’s coat for 2-3 minutes with warm water.
  2. Apply shampoo on their head and ears, and lather. Be sure to wash their head and ear areas carefully, making sure to keep shampoo out of your cat’s eyes.
  3. Then repeat procedure with neck, chest, and middle and hindquarters, finishing legs last and paying special attention to the footpads (between the toes) and underbody areas.
  4. Be sure to thoroughly lather at the base of the tail, as it is a place most frequented by fleas.
  5. Fully lather your cat and let lather remain on them for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water.
  6. For small cats weighing less than 15 pounds, wrapping the animal in a towel for several minutes to absorb moisture is recommended. This will allow the dying fleas and ticks to crawl off your pet into the towel before drying them with a towel.

NOTE: A drop of glycerin in each eye before bathing may prevent or reduce irritation if the shampoo gets in the animal’s eyes.

Be sure to thoroughly read product label directions and precautionary statements before use.
