Rated 2 out of 5 by Sandy I found this product to be inconsistent.
i use to use advantage loyally on my 5 cats. But after a while I found it would work one month and not be effective to fleas at all the next month. My cats are inside/outside cats and I have all hardwood floors, no carpet for bugs to bury in. I switched to Revolution, bit I'm having the same thing happen. One month the fleas are totally off my cats and then with the next month's application, nothing, it's like a go signal for the fleas. I am frustrated, this stuff is expensive not to work and my cats are miserable.

Rated 3 out of 5 Itchy aggitated cat.
My one cat is itching like crazy
Its been about 6 hrs after applying
Advantage II had multi but
Was afraid of more side effects
Listed. So I bought II instead we have
3 indoor and 2 outdoor all have
Been treated but the one outdoor
So I can watch him better when
He comes in for the day. But im
Really concerned about my
Youngest most active shes 3 yrs old
And itching,jumping,crying and
On edge, just generally aggitated
Of course its Sunday at 5 am
So no vets except ER and costs lots of
Money. Unless I wait till Monday
28 hrs until a vet is available. I
Scared for my little Princess Alice
aka Alley. :0(

Rated 5 out of 5 Very happy cats
I also thought Frontline was best. HAH! Advantage II is more effective and quicker. I usually let 6 weeks between doses, being cautious about over medicating. My beloved cats have never mentioned any side effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 Results in Less than 24 hours!
I tried 3 different store bought flea products. All with little results. After purchasing Advantage 2. I was taken aback @ how quickly the flea product worked. Less than 24 hours & all flea activity was gone. Also it did not have a foul odor. Like the store bought brands I tried. 100% pure positive results & experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic product!
I have 4 cats who all love the outdoors. I have used Frontline for years and never had a problem. This year, I gave them their Frontline for the month like usual and then my momma cat gave birth. Four days later the babies were covered head to toe in fleas. The Vet stayed open late for my and gave me Advantage, plus a pill for the momma that killed the fleas immediately. Took a few days of drinking her milk, but they are now flea free. My oldest cat was so bad she was covered in sores and skinny as a rail. Worked great on her, too. My dog, on the other hand, has to have the Advantage twice a month to be effective.

Rated 4 out of 5 Better than Frontline
I used Frontline for years, but only during flea season. Eventually one of my cats got a reaction to it, burned and left a scab on her neck, and did not get rid of the fleas on either cat. When I phoned Frontline, they were manipulative in every way so as not to take any responsibility or give any explanation. I switched to Advantage and it does what it says it does. I give it 4 of 5 only because I hate using any non-organic products.

Rated 5 out of 5 the Best!
Like so many, I had been using Frontline and it wasn't working. But it had worked in the past so I gave it a few more chances. Finally, I came to my senses and tried Advantage. Fleas gone within the day!! thank goodness! I am a very loyal customer now.

Rated 5 out of 5 Frontline?? What's that??
I too have used Frontline for years and thought it was "as good as it got " But when our cats became infested with fleas after moving from California to Texas, I was desperate to find a better sollution. I ordered Frontline as usual and it didn't touch the fleas. I then ordered Advantage and was amazed at the speed of this medication! The fleas were completely gone within a day and now I am trusting on our dog as well. Thank you Advantage!!

Rated 5 out of 5 Advantage Recommendation
Our home was infested by fleas which our cat was bringing in. After we bombed the house and applied advantage, our cat had no more fleas. I had used this product with my past cat and it always worked. I highly recommend it. It is worth every penny.

I switched cats from Frontline to advantage II a couple of weeks ago because Frontline was not lasting very long. So far, so good! Seems to have the flea problem under wraps! And the flea issue in FL is year round!

Rated 3 out of 5 My cat has lots of itches after Advantage II
Just gave all 3 of my cats Advantage II. The most active, healthiest one is now itching like crazy and very lathargic. I tried to brush and wipe off the medication to help him, but he is still unhappy.

Rated 5 out of 5 This is the best
I used Frontline for years and it really didn't work. The cats still had fleas and the house was becoming over run with them. Switched to this and have no fleas. With 7 cats you have to have something that works or your house will be full of fleas. Vet told me I could use on my rabbit as well. He feels better now :) Would not use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 Will never use anything else!
I used frontline for years under the supervision and recommendation of a vet. I just always figured that the flea problem was just something I would have to live with if I wanted to keep cats and keep gardening. Switched to advantage after a groomer recommended it. Been flea-free for almost 6 months!!! Thank you Aimee and Advantage!!!

My cat had horrible fleas, and scabs all over her. This medicine cleared the fleas up so quickly, and the scabs were finally gone in a few days. Definitely recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Product
I used Frontline with not great results for years. I decided to give Advantage a try and will not use anything else. My cats don't run away when I try to put the medication on them, which they did with Frontline. I would recommend this product to anyone.

This is the best flea product I have ever used. The price is right, too. I have had run ins with fleas before and bug bombs seemed to be the only answer. Now we have other animals that can't be around spray poisons. My cats don't mind me applying Advantage and it has no smell on the cat. I love it.

Tried everything else and nothing worked like Advantage. The fleas are gone and I had bathed my cat, combed him, sprayed him nothing was successful. Even I was getting bitten and ow they hurt!!! My cat and I are both bite free thanks to Advantage.

We have 2 indoor cats and 1 indoor/outdoor cat, all are rescue cats. Have been using Advantage for over a year and love it! Found it after a terrible flea problem. Will never use anything else. Ordering it from PetCarerx is a great way to go....

Rated 5 out of 5 Better than Frontline!
Frontline made my cat lose hair where it was applied and even scarred her skin as if burned. My vet told me to switch to Advantage as he was having other customers complain about the frontline. Kills fleas better, my cat is sleeping peacefully now. She's an indoor cat, but somehow we must've brought the fleas in to her. My home has been sprayed, my cat is comfortable and this is just great!

Rated 5 out of 5 I had always used Advantage in the past and with good results. But at the suggestion of a friend and animal care person, I switched to Frontline to treat my cat's flea problem. I went against my saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" Cats and dogs don't scratch because they are bored. It takes too long to work and it still didn't seem as though it was working after a week. I hate to see my cat scratching without any apparent relief. So I said all this to say: "Long live Advantage and no more Frontline!!!"

Rated 5 out of 5 Always Advantage All the Time
Love, love, love this product. We had a mild infestation that was gone literally in hours. We love our kitten to death, and would do anything to make her more comfortable. I work and a grooming salon and have lots of customers tell me that they werre Frontline victims, meaning they buy it and it's not working.

Rated 5 out of 5 Better than all the rest!
I have 5 cats and recently had a bad flea infestation. I tried everyhing from Promaris to Frontline. Nothing worked as well as Advantage. There was also a greater quantity of medication in the other products, whereas less of the Advantage was needed. This was great for having to apply a dose on nervous kitties. Much quicker. Much less trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 HimmyCatLover
Advantage works exactly as it claims it will. Last year we had a terrible infestation of fleas. It was awful. My poor Himmy was eaten up with fleas. I felt so sorry for her. I went to the vet and they recommended Frontline. I tried it and was expecting big things...boy, was I wrong. It killed a few fleas but she was still eaten up with fleas. I was vacuuming the carpet three or four times a day. I felt like I was fighting a losing battle. Then someone told me that their experience was that Advantage worked better on long haired cats. I have to admit that I didn't have much hope that it would be any better than Frontline but I was wrong. Advantage worked like a charm. It is a fantastic product. I highly recommend it. This year I didn't try anything else I went back to Advantage because I knew how well it works. If you are "sitting on the fence" trying to decide which flea product to try I strongly recommend that you go with Advantage. You won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome!!!!!
I brought my cats to kentucky to live with me and my family who had other animals, needless to say they got infested with fleas, i was in tears because my cats never had a flea problem before. I tried biospot to no avail. I read the revews on Advantage and thought hey whats there to lose. I put it on my cats and the other animals and within an hour those pesky critters were dying left and right. My poor babies were so tired of scratching and biting they could never sleep it was so bad, that day i think they all just sighed and laid there precious heads down for a good sleep. When they woke up I don't think i ever seen them so happy then that day. Thank you Advantage.

Rated 5 out of 5 Fleas are gone
I get spot on flea treatment from our local humane shelter.The first time I bought from them for my four cats, it was Advantage and it got rid of ALL of the fleas. The cats were infested to the max. The next time I went back to get more medication they were selling, and I bought, Frontline. What a mistake. The cats acted liked it burned when applied and the few fleas that they had did not die. Evidently the shelter had a lot of complaints because they are selling and using only Advantage again.

My Vet told me, years ago, to try Advantage. I did, my 6 cats were fine, so have used it ever since. It really works and the cats don't seem to mind it.
