Does Advantage flea treatment expire?


Answer

Is it possible that flea treatment may expire in this manner?

Furthermore, can comfortis be used after the expiry date has been reached?

However, if there is no change in colour or odour and it has been a few days after the expiration date, it is most likely OK. However, this is not a drug that will be effective for a lengthy period of time. Medication that is still in powder form is likely to remain effective for another 1 to 2 years beyond the expiry date on the label.
