The single-dose applicator tube is easy to use. Simply part the hair between the shoulder blades, open the applicator, and apply. Make sure you get the medication directly on your dog's skin, not on the haircoat. For dogs weighing less than 20 lbs, apply entire contents to the spot between the shoulder blades; for dogs 20 lbs and over, apply on 3 or 4 spots along the upper back in an area the dog will not be able to lick. Do not let your dog lick himself until the product dries (approximately 30 minutes after application).

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Advantage Multi?
Collies or other herding breeds may have a severe reaction to Advantage Multi if they ingest the product. If your dog is one of these breeds, and your veterinarian has prescribed Advantage Multi, observe your pet closely for at least 30 minutes to ensure your dog does not lick the site of application. Also observe for depression, weakness, staggering, dilated pupils, trembling, panting, or coma. Contact your veterinarian immediately if you see these signs.
Some intestinal parasites, such as hookworms and roundworms can be spread to people. Talk to your veterinarian about other measures you can take to prevent your pet from being infected with intestinal worms, and protecting yourself.
