Effective Against Fleas
Fleas are recognized as a major cause of skin disease for dogs and cats. However they also act as the intermediate host for the tapeworm Dipylidium caninum, and are a zoonotic parasite as well. Studies demonstrate that the moxidectin / imidacloprid combination of Advocate deliver the same high level of flea control expected from Advantage.
Effective Against Lice
Infestations with lice are common in mammals and birds, as well as many other animals. In dogs, two species of lice have been reported: The mallophagean louse, Trichodectes canis, is feeds on skin dandruff and secretion from skin lesions. The anopluran louse, Linognathus setosus, is a capillary blood feeder. These lice suck blood frequently – about every couple of hours.
Effective Against Mange Mites
Sarcoptes scabiei is able to infect a wide range of mammals, with the various sub-species being relatively host-specific. The type found on dogs is Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis; this mite does not infect cats.
Effective Against Ear Mites
Ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) are psoroptic mites which infest the skin of the outer ear canal in both cats and dogs.
Effective Against Demodex Mites
Demodex is part of the physiological fauna of the skin in many, if not all, mammalian species, including the dog and man. Demodex canis is responsible for one of the most important skin diseases of dogs: canine demodicosis.
