Can Advantage Multi for Dogs Be Used On Cats? - Pets
Mar 12, 2016 - The ingredients are identical in Advantage II for both cats and dogs. And they're in the same concentrations. The main difference is the amount of product used. Make sure you're applying the correct dosage, or toxicity problems will likely occur.
Yes, is formulated with 10% imidacloprid and 2.5% moxidectin for canine parasite protection. Do not use Advantage Multi® for Dogs on cats.
If you do use canine Advantix in a home with cats, apply the medicine to your dog while your cat does not have access to the area or to the dog and allow for the medicine to fully absorb into your dog’s skin—when you can no longer visibly see the oily medication on the fur—before allowing your cat back into the same room. I have treated cats that were obsessive groomers and decided the fur between “their” dog’s shoulder blades needed to be cleaned.

Using Advantage II for Dogs on cats - FleaScience
Does anyone know if you can use Advantage For Dogs on cats? On the back it is the same ingredients, so if one used a smaller amount of the Dog Advantage on a cat would it be ok?
Mary from FloridaHi,
I’ve been using Advantage for Dogs on cats for many years by purchasing the Dogs derivative and splitting it into smaller doses appropriate for my cat’s weight. This seemed to be a common practice with vets as the Active Ingredients of the Dogs and Cats derivatives were identical. When Advantage II came out, I continued with the practice of using the Dog product on Cats only adjusting the dosage. However, after a while, Bayer added a “Do not use on Cats” warning on the packaging of Advantage II for Dogs. I can understand why Bayer would put such a warning from a marketing point of view. However, as the non-active ingredients are not listed on the packaging of either product, I’m not sure whether there might be another reason.
I was wondering if you had any insight on this question of using Advantage II for Dogs on Cats.
I look forward to hearing from you, O.you can buy the Advantage for dogs and split it up for use on cats. Don't worry, it's safe. When I first heard about this, years ago, I asked my vet about it. He got out a box of Advantage for large dogs and a box of Advantage for cats. He compared the ingredients. He was surprised to find out they were the same. Now, they tell their clients about this, saving them money.Advantage II is a monthly flea preventative for dogs and cats that offers comprehensive flea protection by killing adult fleas, larvae, and eggs. Plus, it kills fleas through contact, which means fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Advantage II also treats, prevents, and controls lice on dogs. Advantage II does not kill ticks, so we recommend using the along with Advantage II (dogs only). Advantage II for small cats 5-9 lbs can also be used for ferrets weighing 1 lb or over and 10 weeks of age or older.
