Method of administration:

Remove the pipette from the overblister. Hold the pipette upright. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure that the contents are within the main body of the pipette. Break the snap-off top of the spot-on pipette along the scored line.

Part the pet’s coat on base of the neck before the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette directly against the skin and squeeze gently several times to empty the contents. If necessary, the contents of the pipette can be administered at one or two additional point (s) along the pet’s back to avoid run-off or more superficial application to the hair coat. 

Drop stop system (the product is released only by pressing the body of the pipette).

 

One pipette provides a single treatment, with the possibility to repeat administrations on a monthly basis. For optimal control of flea and tick infestations and flea multiplication, the treatment schedule can be based on the local epidemiological situation.

 

RESIDUAL EFFECTS:

Fleas: A single dose is effective against new flea infestations for approximately 3 months. Prevention of the multiplication of fleas by preventing flea eggs developing into adult fleas for 3 months after application.

Ticks: A single dose is effective against new tick infestations for up to 2 months. If ticks are present at the time of application, not all ticks may be killed within 48 hours. 

 

SIDE EFFECTS:

Transient cosmetic effects such as wet appearance or slight scaling may occur at the application site.  According to the accumulated experience on these active ingredients within spot on pharmaceutical forms, transient cutaneous reactions at the application site (squamosis, local alopecia, pruritus, erythema, skin discolouration) and general pruritus or alopecia may be observed after use. In very rare instances, hypersalivation, reversible neurologic symptoms (hyperesthesia, depression, nervous symptoms), respiratory signs or vomiting might occur. The risk of experiencing adverse reactions may increase with overdosing, so animals should always be treated with correct pipette size according to bodyweight. 

 

WARNINGS:

  • Shampooing or immersion of the animal in water directly after treatment may reduce the duration of activity. The product remains effective against fleas for 5 weeks in small dogs and 4 weeks in Medium, Large and Extra Large Dogs when the dogs is shampooed at monthly intervals after treatment, If the dog requires shampooing, it is better to do so before treatment. 
  • Water immersion repeated on two occasions post treatment did not affect adulticidal efficacy against fleas nor the efficacy related to the prevention of the development of flea eggs into adult fleas. 
  • The influence of water immersion or shampooing of the dog on the efficacy of the product against ticks has not been validated. 
  • At the beginning of the control measures, in case of massive infestation, animal’s basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings should be treated, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly. 
  • To reduce environmental flea challenge, all animals living in the same household should also be treated with a suitable flea control product. 
  • The product does not prevent ticks from attaching to animals. Transmission of infectious disease by ticks cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable. Immediate efficacy has been demonstrated against lxodes ricinus, indicating that ticks of this species are likely to be killed within 48 hours of product application. If Dermacentor reticulatus or Rhipicephalus sanguineus ticks are present when the product is applied, these ticks may not be killed within 48 hours. 
  • Once dead, ticks will often drop off the animal. Any remaining ticks should be carefully removed, ensuring that their mouth parts are not left within the skin. 
  • Keep out of reach of children, uninformed persons and animals. 
  • Although this remedy has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may ensue as a result of a wide range of reasons. If this is suspected, seek veterinary advice and notify the registration holder.
