Advocate Large Cat is a proven broad-spectrum parasite control suitable for cats over 4kg. No more ear mites, roundworms, heartworm, hookworms and best of all – no more fleas! Do not treat kittens younger than 9 weeks of age. Use monthly for total and long term parasite control. 

What is Advocate?

Advocate is a so-called endectocide, a single product effective against both, ecto- and endoparasites, like fleas, lice, mites and different types of worms.

Why should I buy this product?

In the last decades, due to traveling and climate change parasites have conquered new territories and with their spreading also the threat of parasitic diseases or diseases transmitted by parasites has grown. Thus, broad spectrum prevention is becoming more and more important, not only because of the health risk for the individual animal but also to protect the whole population against the spreading of parasitic diseases.

Fleas on cats must be stopped from biting as quickly as possible.  Flea bites can cause suffering and may transmit diseases.

Which ingredients are used in Advocate?

Imidacloprid and Moxidectin

From what age can I administer Advocate on my cat?

Advocate can be used on kittens over 9 weeks of age and 1 kg in weight

What is the best way to store Advocate?

Advocate comes in a box of 3 tubes.  Store the advocate in the original packaging in a cool dry place.

  • Kills fleas on cats and prevents infestations for at least 4 weeks.

  • Kills fleas before they can lay eggs.

  • Kills flea larvae in the cat’s surroundings

  • Assists in the control of flea allergy dermatitis in cats

  • Treatment of ear mite infestation

  • Prevention of heartworm disease

  • Treatment of infections with gastrointestinal nematodes including ascarids and hookworm.

  • Can be used on kittens over 9 weeks of age and 1 kg in weight.

  • Hold the applicator tube in an upright position. Twist and pull cap off the tube.

  • Turn the cap around and place the other end of the cap back on the tube.

  • Twist cap to break the seal, then remove the cap from the tube.

  • For easy application your animal should be standing.

  • Part the hair on the cat’s neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible.

  • Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube firmly several times to empty its contents directly on the skin as a single spot.

  • Application at the base of the skull will minimise the opportunity for the cat to lic the product.

  • Apply only to undamaged skin.

  • Apply one tube to one cat.

Flea treatment and prevention: Treat the cat at 4 weekly intervals. One treatment prevents future flea infestation for 4 weeks.

Ear mites: A single dose of the product should be administered. A subsequent veterinary examination 30 days after treatment is recommended as some animals may require a second treatment.  DO NOT APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE EAR CANAL.

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.
