If you want your pet to be fully protected against heartworm, fleas, intestinal worms and even mange, then you should be applying Advantage Multi on them once a month. Advantage Multi is a topical ‘spot-on’ application and with most dogs and cats it will work its magic when you just apply it in a spot on the back of their necks. If you own a larger dog you should spread the product between the spot on their back and a line down their spine; this will help fully protect larger dogs. * Dogs over 45 kg should be treated with the appropriate combination of advantage multi® tubes.
