There Are Other Products out There, That Are Just As Good.

Pros: Does the job sufficiently and you only have to apply once a month.

Cons: There are other products on today's market that are cheaper and just as good.

The Bottom Line: If you are looking to save money.  Then keep looking this product is nothing special.

As you will soon find out, once you purchase your favorite pet will notice that you will have the added responsibility of protecting them and stopping any extra parasites from coming in your house.  Plus, you will also find out, there is an exorbitant amount of different types of products on today's market that continue to try and sway you to purchase them because they say they work better than the other ones.  Advantage has been around for over 10 years, and I used to use this all the time until that is, that I found out about Bio-Spot.  Don't get me wrong advantage does an excellent job, but they are charging you for only a four month supply, for right around $25.  With Bio-Spot, you will get a six-month supply for half the price.  So I figure that, why not purchase something that you get more for your money.  When we first started using advantage, we noticed that we had only a little problem of fleas on our pets.  Advantage advertises that they can stop the fleas from biting in three to five minutes.  I am not to sure about that exact time, because when I put it on my dogs they continued to scratch and bite for at least 24 hours.  If we did not watch out and stop them from scratching and biting then red spots would appear.  We did notice that within a few hours, there was a definite difference, as to how much scratching they were doing, but they did not completely stop until the next day.  Remember this particular product is for dogs less than 10 pounds of weight.


Description
You will receive four tubes of medication, to be applied once a month for four months.  All you have to do is grab your pet by the scruff of the neck at the base, push their hair aside till you see your pets’ skin.  Then you would place the tip of the tube right upon your pets’ skin and proceed to apply until the container is empty.  You will not need to massage this into the skin or anything, just let it absorb into their skin.  Each package, of advantage is made differently, and for different weight types of dogs and cats so make sure you purchase the exact product that you need.  You will not need to do this two days in a row.  Each of these tubes is made to last for four weeks.  They also advertise that approximately 100% of all existing fleas that are on your pet should be dead within 12 hours.

Features
Just like all of the other products on today's market the main features that they advertise that this product will do, is that it is supposed to stop your pets from biting in three to five minutes.  I found this to be untrue, and they will scratch for at least 24 hours if not more.  I have also found that even after the 12 hour wait.  I have still found some fleas that are alive but by using this over several months, it does eliminate the fleas, if you don't get them the first time you will get them in the next dose.  This product is supposed to eliminate and kill any flea larvae within 20 minutes.  I did not have a problem with this part of it.  I did notice that this product will remain effective, even after you give your dog a bath or if they're swimming in the pool or if it is raining outside, as long as you apply this once a month you should not have to worry about fleas.

Plus Side
Once you have started the program, even if this does not work in the first day.  As long as you keep applying it once a month, you will definitely notice some of the benefits of any kind of flea protection product.  You will probably notice quick relief from flea bites as long as your dog or cat has not been biting or scratching for a long time.  You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that you are killing the fleas before they have chance to lay any eggs inside your house or furniture.  You will have the satisfaction of also knowing that if they pick up fleas off of other infested animals.  Those fleas will be killed, and help with stopping the re-infestation of your home.  It is also nice to know that you will not have to reapply this after they take a bath or come in contact with water.  You will only have to apply this only once a month of matter what the weather is.

Experience
When I first saw this on the market, I purchased it through my neighborhood veterinary clinic.  That can be quite expensive after a while.  Even though I found this to be very useful I am always in the market for saving money.  That is why I stumbled upon Bio-Spot.  Bio spot will sell you a six months supply for half the price.  And I have found this to work just as well as Advantage.  The important thing to remember is no matter what product that you are going to end up using.  Make sure that no other cat or dog, desides to lick that spot, you have to remember that this is a pesticide and that if ingested your pets may have serious reactions.  Some of these include depression, salivation, dilated pupils, and loss of coordination, panting and muscle tremors.  In some serious cases, your pet could go into a coma or even death may result as the cause of ingestion.  The easiest way to prevent this is by, once you have applied this to your pet, and if you have more than one pet, then keep them separated for a least one half an hour.  This should give the product time to absorb into the skin and you will not have to worry about getting any of your other pets sick.


Conclusion
Even though I have found Advantage to work sufficiently, I prefer to use something a little bit cheaper.  Granted, there is nothing wrong with Advantage or Bio spot they all have their each individual side effects.  The fact remains that in today's market of high prices I like to try and save a few dollars here and there.  I cannot highly recommend this; because there are other products out there that are cheaper and will do the same job for less money.
