Advantage® II for Dogs

What are the active ingredients in Advantage® II for Dogs?
  • 9.10% imidacloprid
  • 0.46% pyriproxyfen

Imidacloprid attacks fleas’ nervous systems — paralyzing and ultimately killing them.

An insect growth regulator (IGR), such as pyriproxyfen, inhibits the development of flea eggs by mimicking the juvenile growth hormone. This ingredient prevents immature flea stages from molting into the next stage of the life cycle and keeps them from developing into adult fleas. It also offers additional larvicidal properties when compared with imidacloprid alone.

What are the dosing and frequency guidelines for Advantage® II for Dogs?

One treatment of Advantage® II is effective for 1 month. In cases of severe flea infestation, re-treatment may be necessary earlier than 4 weeks; clients should not re-treat more often than every 7 days. After flea control is attained, your patient can return to a monthly treatment schedule.

Advantage® II is available in four weight bands. Each weight band is available in 4- or 6-packs:

  •  3-10 lbs., small dog
  • 11-20 lbs., medium dog
  • 21-55 lbs., large dog
  • Over 55 lbs., extra-large dog
     
What are the packaging specifications for Advantage® II for Dogs?

Why is it important to use a product with an IGR like Advantage® II for Dogs?

With an insect growth regulator (IGR) as part of your patients’ flea control, the flea life cycle is disrupted at multiple stages through different active ingredients and modes of action. This is often referred to as integrated flea control (IFC). The addition of an IGR to Advantage® II provides ovicidal properties, as well as additional larvicidal properties, to target flea infestations and kill all flea life stages.

Is Advantage® II for Dogs waterproof?

Yes, Advantage® II for Dogs is waterproof after 24 hours. There is no need for clients to reapply the product after weekly swimming or a bath. For best results, it's recommended to use a non-detergent shampoo.

Alenza® Soft Chew Joint Supplement for Dogs

How do Alenza® Soft Chews provide more than just joint support for your patients?

Alenza® supports multiple systems throughout the body, including a healthy inflammatory response in dogs for Whole Body Comfort®

Oxidative stress happens daily within the body through normal wear and tear. However, many other factors, including age and lifestyle, can lead to increased production of free radicals causing tissue damage and loss of tissue function. Alenza® helps remove damaging free radicals and helps to decrease oxidative damage.
 

What are the dosing and frequency guidelines for Alenza® Soft Chews?

Alenza® can be given during or after mealtime.

Maintenance recommendations:
5 to 15 lbs. — ½ chew every other day
16 to 30 lbs. — ½ chew daily
31 to 60 lbs. — 1 chew daily
61 to 100 lbs. — 2 chews daily
101 to 125 lbs. — 3 chews daily
Over 126 lbs. - 4 chews daily 

Alenza® can be used as a standalone product or in coordination with other supplement support products such as Free Form™ and/or Synovi G4® from Bayer.

Alenza® can be used for ongoing, long-term use in dogs to support a healthy inflammatory response and comfort, but it should not be used in the place of prescription drugs to manage pain.

What are the benefits of pet leave-on rinse products?

While not as well-known as pet shampoos, leave-on rinse products are a great way to promote skin health and coat quality, especially on patients with dry or sensitive skin. They are best utilized after a bath (using either routine or medicated shampoo) when the shampoo has been thoroughly rinsed off and the coat is still wet. Once applied, rinses are worked into the patients’ skin and coat and should not be washed off. Leave-on rinses moisturize the skin, make the coat more manageable, prevent tangles, snarls, and matting and promote coat luster and sheen.

How is a hydrating shampoo different from other pet shampoos?

A hydrating shampoo contains ingredients designed to keep water in the skin, helping to maintain a soft, smooth texture. A variety of ingredients support skin hydration, including fatty acids and oils. These shampoos typically lather well and often are formulated with a pleasant smell. 

What are the benefits of soap-free shampoos vs. regular or human shampoos?

Soap-free shampoo is a term used to describe shampoos that use soaps derived from synthetic ingredients instead of from animal fat, which may strip a pet’s coat, leaving it dry and irritated. Soap-free shampoos are gentler for pets and can help avoid skin irritation or allergic reactions. 

Above all, be sure your clients know not to use human shampoo on their cat or dog. Human products are formulated for use on more acidic skin (pH around 5), while dog and cat products are generally formulated for use on more pH neutral skin (pH around 7). Human products can dry out a pet’s skin and cause irritation.

Why use turmeric?

The active component of turmeric, curcumin, is a yellow phytochemical extracted from the plant’s roots that has shown to have many properties, including antioxidant and free radical scavenging abilities. There is also in vitro data supporting a healthy inflammatory response1 and glutathione production.2 Glutathione is an antioxidant necessary for many normal cellular functions.

Product Label
 

Why use antioxidants?

Antioxidants like those found in Synovi G4® support a dog’s health by battling free radicals throughout the body. Free radicals are formed when a normal atom loses an electron and becomes unstable. While free radicals are natural by-products of normal bodily functions, when produced in excess, they can cause cell damage throughout the body. This damage is commonly referred to as free radical oxidative stress. 

Some of the factors that can contribute to free radical formation and increase oxidative stress include air pollution, illness and inflammation, and excessive UV light exposure.1

Antioxidants play a vital role by neutralizing free radicals by contributing the missing electrons atoms need without becoming free radicals themselves. As a result, antioxidants can reduce free radicals, helping the body work naturally to reduce oxidative stress. Protecting the body from free radical oxidative stress can maintain a normal, healthy inflammatory response.

Why does Synovi G4® not contain chondroitin?

Product Label
 

Why combine Boswellia and turmeric into one supplement?

These two ingredients were added because they are not commonly found in traditional joint supplements and are known for a variety of health benefits. A growing body of evidence indicates that both Boswellia and turmeric may be beneficial in the support of healthy joints, including cartilage and connective tissue, as well as a healthy inflammatory response.

What can patients expect after giving Synovi G4® to their dog? [

It varies depending on a wide scope of factors, such as lifestyle, genetic predispositions, body condition and type of discomfort. It is possible that pet owners may notice some benefit within two to four weeks.

How many treatments of Profender® for cats are needed to treat intestinal worms?

After applying a single dose of Profender®, the worms will be expelled through the cat’s feces. A second treatment should not be necessary. As with any dewormer, reinfection is always possible. If re-infection occurs, the product can be applied again after 30 days.

How often can Profender® for cats be applied?

Profender® for cats can be applied once every 30 days if needed. One dose will kill and remove adult tapeworms as well as adult and immature stages of roundworms and hookworms. Due to a cat’s behavior and environment (going outdoors, hunting, exposure to fleas, etc.), reinfection is always a possibility, in which case re-treatment with Profender® may be necessary. 

Does Profender® for cats need to be applied in clinic?

Profender® for cats can be applied in a veterinary office or at home by clients after attaining a prescription and purchasing the product at a clinic or online pharmacy. Its easy-to-apply topical application was developed for compliance and means no more pills, painful injections or messy pastes for you or your clients.
