Manchaca Road Animal Hospital’s “Product of the Month” is Bayer’s new topical flea treatment and heartworm prevention. This exciting new product also prevents intestinal parasites. With Bayer’s usual 100% guarantee and internationally recognized integrity, this should prove to be a popular and convenient new weapon in the heartworm and flea prevention arsenal.
The ingredients in Advantage Multi (imidacloprid & moxidectin) have proven efficacy and safety separately in other product lines. Now they are combined to provide an all-in-one monthly preventative program. The broad spectrum of Advantage Multi covers fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and ear mites. This product is available for dogs over 7 weeks of age and cats over 9 weeks of age. The cost of Advantage Multi is not significantly more than Advantage and for most clients who are on separate flea and heartworm products, this will be a less expensive option. This is great news for everyone! Unlike Advantage though, Advantage Multi will be sold by prescription only.
