Kills fleas through contact

Advantage Multi® prevents and treats flea infestations in both outdoor and indoor cats alike. Unlike with oral preventives, fleas don’t have to bite your cat to die. Re-infesting or new fleas are killed for the rest of the month.

Helps prevent deadly heartworms

Carried by mosquitoes, heartworms can cause blood clots, respiratory disease, permanent lung damage and even death in cats. Unfortunately, there is no cure, so prevention is key. Advantage Multi® makes it easy with a monthly topical treatment.

Protects against intestinal parasites

Cats are excellent groomers and natural hunters — which puts both outdoor and indoor cats at risk of picking up intestinal parasites carried by infected fleas, rodents, rabbits and birds. Advantage Multi® goes broad and deep to kill multiple life stages of common intestinal parasites.

Treats ear mites to help prevent ear infections

Cats can catch ear mites from interacting with other cats or exploring outdoors. Left untreated, they can cause infections, deafness, coordination or balance issues, and permanent ear scarring. Advantage Multi® kills these pesky parasites, the No. 1 cause of ear infections in cats.
