Advocate Spot-On Solution offers dogs comprehensive protection against a variety of parasites. Specifically designed to combat the threat of mixed parasitic infections, Advocate is particularly potent against flea infestations, their larvae, and a spectrum of worms, including roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Additionally, the solution is effective in treating ear mite infestations, Demodex mites, sarcoptic mange, and in preventing heartworm disease—an essential inclusion in any canine health regimen.
Presented as a straightforward spot-on treatment, Advocate is a transparent, slightly yellow to brownish solution in single-use plastic pipettes. These pipettes are designed for dermal application and are meticulously dosed to ensure the welfare of your four-legged friend.
A minimum dose of 10 mg/kg body weight of the active ingredient imidacloprid and 2.5 mg/kg of moxidectin is recommended for dogs. This is equivalent to 0.1 ml Advocate solution per kg of dog weight. To maintain robust health, individual veterinary diagnosis and consideration of local parasitic trends are paramount.
A single treatment provides a four-week shield against flea resurgence. A complete flea control strategy may also necessitate environmental interventions due to the potential for larvae to emerge up to six weeks post-treatment.
Ear mite infestation in dogs calls for gentle ear canal cleansing alongside a single dose of Advocate. Veterinary follow-up within a month is advised. Biting lice and sarcoptic mange are similarly tackled with a single application, requiring a repeat dose after four weeks.
In the case of eye worms (Thelazia callipaeda) and demodicosis caused by Demodex canis, a single dose regimen adjusted by the veterinarian’s methods is recommended. Heartworm prevention is particularly critical in endemic areas, necessitating regular administration during the mosquito season.
The product’s application should be external only. When used on dogs up to 25 kg, part the fur and apply directly onto the skin between the shoulder blades. Distribute the solution in 3 to 4 spots along the spine for larger dogs.
Though Advocate has revolutionized parasitic treatment, its application comes with necessary precautions. It is unsuitable for puppies under 7 weeks or dogs weighing under 1 kg. Clinicians should evaluate its use on a risk-benefit basis. Advocates should be avoided in cases of hypersensitivity and if the dog is intended for breeding, pregnancy, or lactating.
It is crucial to prevent the product from ingestion and contact with the eyes or mouth and to follow the correct application method to minimize the risk of adverse reactions.
Advocate Spot-On Solution for Dogs acts as a vigilant sentinel in the battle against canine parasites, ensuring that your dog can enjoy a healthy, unrestricted life with proper use and veterinary guidance.
For precise administration instructions or if concerns arise, always consult a veterinarian—a safe protocol of paramount importance for the welfare of your canine companion.
Please note that it’s crucial that the product is not ingested, and special care should be given to avoid contact with sensitive materials post-application, as the solvent in Advocate may cause damage to surfaces such as leather, fabrics, and plastics.
