Sarcoptic mange: A single dose should be administered twice 4 weeks apart.
Demodectic mange: A single dose administered 2 - 4 times at 4 weekly intervals is efficacious against Demodex canis and leads to a marked improvement of clinical signs.
Roundworm and hookworm treatment: If advocate is being used solely for intestinal worms, then treatment every 3 months is recommended. If advocate is used for flea control or heartworm prevention, monthly treatments may significantly reduce the risk of re-infection of intestinal worms.
Water exposure: Brief contact of the animal with water on one or 2 occasions between monthly treatments is unlikely to significantly reduce the efficacy of the product. However. Frequent shampooing or immersion in water directly after treatment may reduce the efficacy of the product.
