Advocate for Dogs 4-10kg 3 Tubes

Advocate for Dogs general information

What is Advocate for Dogs used for?

Advocate for Dogs 4-10kg is a topical treatment for medium size dogs between 4kg and 10kg is used for the treatment, prevention and control of infestation with parasitic insects and parasitic intestinal worms.  Advocate is an effective for treatment for control of several parasitic insects in dogs including fleas, lice, skin mites and ear mites.  Advocate is effective against all stages of the dog flea (Ctenocephalides) life cycle, including the eggs and larvae and kills over 98% of adult fleas within 12 hours.  By also targeting the larval stages Advocate helps control reinfestation from fleas in the dog’s environment.  It is also effective in controlling flea allergy dermatitis, which can be irritating and cause itching in dogs sensitive to flea bites, particularly the saliva of the flea, and can cause hair loss and eczema.  Ear mites (Otodectes) live in the ear canal of infected dogs causing a black wax-like discharge with irritation and itching and can result in ear infections due to excessive scfatching.  Sarcoptic mange or scabies is a highly contagious skin disease in dogs and is caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabei, which invades the skin and burrows causing severe itching, irritation and hair loss.  Demodectic mange is common skin condition in dogs, caused by the skin mite Demodex that lives in the hair follicles causing inflammation, lesions and hair loss.  Dog lice are a small insect that lives on the skin and are contagious to other dogs.  It lays eggs at the base of hair follicles and causes severe itching, irritation and hair loss.  There are two species that infect dogs, Trichodectes canis that chews the skin and Linognathus setosus that sucks blood.  Advocate is used for control of roundworm (Toxacara), hookworm (Uncinaria) and whipworm (Trichuris trichiura) including larval and immature adult stages, but it is not effective against tape worm, another antihelminth is needed to control this parasite.  Roundworm is an intestinal parasite that deprives dogs of essential nutrients causes diarrhoea, weight loss and poor condition and may cause intestinal obstruction, particularly in puppies; it can also be a hazard to people.  Whipworm is a roundworm that lives in the large intestine.  Hookworm feeds on the intestinal wall, causing significant blood loss.  Intestinal parasites are transmitted when the eggs are ingested from the environment such as the soil, and can cause serious health problems.  By targeting all stages of the parasitic worm lifecycle, Advocate helps control reinfestation from the dog’s environment.  Advocate for dogs is also effective against heartworm (Dirofilaria), a roundworm that is transmitted by a mosquito bite and the microfilariae larvae travel in the blood to the heart and lungs, causing inflammation, tissue damage and obstruction to blood flow by blockage of arteries.  By eliminating the larval stage Advocate helps protect other dogs.  Advocate for Dogs 4-10kg is suitable for treating fleas in dogs less than 9 weeks old but for treating mites and worms, dogs and puppies should be over 7 weeks old.  For control of roundworm and hookworm in dogs and puppies less than 7 weeks old, a specific deworming agent should be used.

How does Advocate for Dogs work?

Advocate for Dogs 4-10kg contains two active ingredients, Imidacloprid an insecticide and Moxidectin an anthelminthic (deworming).  When applied to the skin Advocate spreads rapidly and is absorbed through the skin into the circulation, so that it is effective against internal and external parasites.  Imidacloprid in Advocate is a systemic insecticide belonging to the neonicotinoids class of insecticide and was designed to mimic nicotine, a natural insect neurotoxin found in many plants.  When a sucking insect like fleas, mites and lice feed on the dog’s blood they ingest imidacloprid, which blocks transmission of nerve signals and disrupts the insect’s nervous system, which kills the insect.  Advocate stops flees feeding within 3-5 minutes and kills them within 12 hours.  The insects can also be killed by absorption of the imidacloprid through their intersegmental membrane, so do not need to bite to receive a lethal dose.  Moxidectin in Advocate is an anthelmintic drug that kills intestinal parasitic worms by blocking nerve transmission and works by binding to specific ion channels in the cell membrane.  These are glutamate gated and gamma-aminobutyric (GABAA) mediated sodium channels, which are important in neuromuscular function of the parasite and the result is an influx of sodium ions into the cell, which disrupts nerve transmission causing paralysis and death.  The parasitic worms will lose their grip on the intestinal wall while feeding on blood and pass out in the cat’s stools.  One application of Advocate last for 4 weeks.
