How It Works?
Imidacloprid and Moxidectin are the two active ingredients present in Advantage Multi (Advocate) for cats. Imidacloprid, an insecticide acts as a parasite neurotoxin acting on the central nervous system of parasites by interfering with the transmission of the stimuli in the parasite’s nervous system. It causes a blockage in the nervous system of the parasite eventually leading to parasite and death. Moxidectin, an anthelmintic drug kills parasitic worms and is used to prevent and control heartworms and intestinal worms in cats. When both these ingredients are used in conjunction it results in total abolishment of fleas, intestinal worms and heartworms in cats.
Imidacloprid and Moxidectin
Warning:Dogs of some breeds like collies are sensitive to moxidectin. They can suffer more or less serious adverse effects if treated at dose rates slightly higher than the recommended ones. Consequently, dosing must be as accurate as possible.
