Advantage II is a liquid applied to the dog's skin, usually between the shoulder blades. As with any spot on treatment, you need to keep children away from the application area for at least 24 hours.
The good news is Advantage II starts working in minutes. Flea protection is a very important part of a dog's life. The quicker you get them varmints off your your dog, the better. The dog's constant chewing and scratching can cause a secondary skin infection along with bleeding, scratches, and hot spots.
Advantage II will kill 98-100% of adult fleas within 12 hours, stops fleas from biting in 3-5 minutes, and kills re-infesting fleas within 2 hours.
