Studies have also been conducted on a range of other animal species, showing that imidacloprid (the active ingredient of Advantage flea control) is well-tolerated by a range of vertebrate species including: mustelids (e.g. mink, ferrets), rodents (e.g. rats, prairie dogs, squirrels, guinea pigs) and marsupials (e.g. bandicoots). Advantage flea control products are officially registered for use in dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets only, however, and the use of this product on other species is therefore "off-label" and can not be in any way guaranteed or advised (see your vet for information and doses).
