Heartworm prevention for dogs that works all month long

Without prevention, heartworm disease can be deadly. Unlike oral heartworm preventives for dogs, the topical moxidectin in Advantage Multi® absorbs into the body and keeps killing worms all month long. Plus, Advantage Multi® forgives if you forget. So even if you’re a few days late applying that monthly dose, just treat immediately and resume your monthly schedule.

Prevents five parasites in one easy dose

Advantage Multi® protects against heartworms and intestinal worms at multiple stages, such as hookworms, roundworms and whipworms. It also prevents and treats flea infestations, killing fleas through contact so they don’t have to bite your dog to die. Advantage Multi® even treats and controls sarcoptic mange, a skin infection caused by parasitic mites that dogs can pick up from other dogs at doggy day care, dog parks and groomers.
