Wags Advance® for Dogs is EPA-approved safe and effective. The primary active ingredient is featured in big-name brands, and PetFriendly products are customized and conveniently delivered straight to your door at an affordable price — plus free shipping!
Nope! Wags Advance® for Dogs is delivered straight to your door without a prescription, vet visit, or trip to the store (shipping is free). But, we recommend checking with your vet if you are switching from another over-the-counter flea and tick prevention for the health of your pet.
Wags Advance® for Dogs is waterproof but requires the natural oils in your dog's skin and fur to properly distribute the active ingredients, such as imidacloprid, effectively.
Avoid bathing your dog or allowing them to go swimming for at least 48 hours before and after applying topical treatments. If you bathe your dog often or want to kill adult fleas and remove flea dirt we recommend using mild shampoo.
Our Wags Advance for Dogs topical flea & tick protection has not been tested on breeding, nursing, or pregnant dogs.
We always recommend you discuss applying any product to your dog in these conditions with your veterinarian. Feel free to contact our veterinarian team at firstname.lastname@example.org before you reach out to your vet.
No! Wags Advance® for Dogs can be fatal for cats. Keep your cats away from treated dogs for at least 24 hours after treatment. Multi-pet owners — Paws Plus® for Cats flea, tick, and lice protection is for you.
This product does not work against ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, or tapeworms. You will need a heartworm preventative in addition to this product. But, this product prevents and kills fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and chewing lice.
We currently offer topical treatments for dogs because they are the most convenient and effective way to kill and prevent pests and parasites. We started with a topical rather than an oral treatment because:
Oral treatments reside in your dog’s bloodstream. This requires insects to bite your dog in order to be effective. That bite can lead to other health problems for your animal, such as Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD).
Oral treatments typically require a prescription from a vet. Most oral treatments require a prescription from your veterinarian. Wags Advance® for Dogs is an over-the-counter topical flea treatment that gets delivered to your door just a few days after signing up.
Oral flea and tick treatments are often more expensive. Wags Advance® for Dogs costs 20-40% less than the big brands. We also provide free shipping and bonus treats in every box. Plus, you'll save on the time and cost of a veterinarian visit.
*Choosing the right medication for your pet may depend on the price, types of protection available, and lifestyle. No matter what you choose, consult with your veterinarian about potential risks.
Gaining (flea, tick, and lice) control of an infestation can take anywhere from 30 days to several months. Parasites can wreak havoc on your pets and in your home.
For your pets: The best way to control parasites is through consistent protection. This will help you prevent and kill pests and prevent diseases and re-infestations. Be sure to follow the instructions provided.
For your home: Treat your home with a household spray. Best-in-class sprays cover a combination of fleas, ticks, and other pests. We have one available to add to your box that will take care of the insects and parasites in your home.
