General Information On Advantage
Advantage is a medication given for the treatment of flea infestations in dogs and cats. The generic name of Advantage is Imidacloprid, which belongs to the group of insecticidal drugs.
Advantage is applied over the dog’s skin and works by paralyzing the fleas and subsequently killing them in any life stage. It is reported to kill 98% of fleas within 12 hours after application. Re-infesting fleas are killed by Advantage in 2 hours.
Advantage also prevents the infestation of fleas in your home. You may buy Advantage for the successful flea treatment of your dogs. This particular product has also been found to be useful for the control of lice in dogs and cats. It is not to be given to any other animal and is not indicated for human use.
Side effects of Advantage
Advantage may cause certain side effects in rare cases. The most common side effects are temporary in nature. In some cases, you may notice redness or itching in the area where Advantage was applied on your dog or cat. This localized side effect would wear off after a day or two post the initial application of Advantage.
Another common side effect that may be seen includes oily fur. Since Advantage is applied topically over the dog’s or cat’s skin, its fur may appear oily, especially around the area where the product was applied. This side effect would wane within a period of 1 to 2 days.
If the animal licks the treated area, it may suffer from excessive drooling. Therefore, Advantage is recommended to be applied on the dog’s back to avoid such situations. You must talk to your veterinarian before administering this medication on your pet. Allergies may be seen in dogs or cats in rare cases. You must inform the veterinarian if your dog or cat begins to suffer from vomiting, diarrhea or any other sudden changes in health and behavior after Advantage is applied.
Dosage of Advantage
Advantage may cause stinging and irritation to your skin or eyes if it comes in contact with these areas. Therefore, you must wash your hands well before and after applying Advantage on your dog or cat. Before administering Advantage for your pet, squeeze out the contents of the tube directly onto its neck.
Advantage is available in different formulations for dogs and cats. Moreover, it is also available in different forms for cats over and under 9 pounds. Advantage for dogs is available in 4 forms- for dogs weighing less than 10 pounds, dogs weighing between 11 and 20 pounds, dogs weighing between 21 and 55 pounds, and for dogs that weigh more than 55 pounds.
Advantage must only be applied on the skin of the pet and not on its coat. You may apply it on the back of the neck or the base of the skull to stop the dog or cat from licking it.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
