Advantage flea control products are made by Bayer and can be used on puppies older than seven weeks of age. Each pack of Advantage includes four or six plastic tubes of imidacloprid-based medication in a cardboard box. One tube is used each month. The size of the tubes varies by the dosage size, with Bayer offering four sizes depending on the weight of the puppy. The price for a 4-pack starts at forty dollars through your veterinarian, or less if purchased online.
