CanadaPetCare offers top rated, brand heart wormers for dogs. Our products are in the form of spot-ons, tablets and chewables. Advantage Multi (Advocate). Dogs have many enemies. Fleas, ticks, worms, and other creatures are just waiting to invade your dog’s fur or body at any moment and they can present a real problem if left untreated. Medications exist for all these things, but one product that protects in one quick step is Advantage Multi Treatment for Dogs.

Medication Commentary:

Advantage Multi Treatment for Dogs is one of the few medications available that treats fleas, ticks, heartworm, ringworm, hookworm, and whipworm in one single application. The product is applied externally, making it much easier than the heartworm products that have no taste appeal to a dog and often have to be wrapped in another food in order to get a dog to take them.

Advantage Multi Treatment for Dogs goes to work quickly, killing fleas and ticks and keeping them away for a full month. The single application is what I like best. With separate heartworm and flea product, you have to give your dog multiple treatments. With this product, everything is taken care of with a single squeeze of the bottle.

Advantage Multi Treatment for Dogs is a little on the pricey side, so this could deter some from buying it. However, I wouldn’t let cost be a factor because if you treated separately, you will find that the prices of heartworm medication and flea treatments together are often more than this single treatment product.

Bottom Line Viewpoint:

Advantage Multi Treatment for Dogs is a very good means to a healthier dog and with its single step application, it is one of the more convenient. Dogs with sensitive skin may find the product a little irritating, but other than that, Advantage Multi Treatment for Dogs is an effective product for flea and worm prevention.
