SPECIAL WARNINGS FOR EACH TARGET SPECIES
When used as part of a strategy for the treatment of flea allergy dermatitis, monthly applications to the allergic patient and to other cats and dogs in the household are recommended.
For optimum efficacy, it is not recommended to bathe or shampoo animals in the two days prior to or following treatment with the product. Bathing or shampooing up to four times in two months has been shown to have no significant effect on the residual efficacy of the product. Monthly treatment is recommended when more frequent shampooing is carried out.
Treatment of bedding, carpets and soft furnishings with a suitable insecticide will aid reduction in environmental challenge and maximise the duration of protection against re-infestation provided by the product.
For optimum control of flea problems in a multi-pet household, all dogs and cats in the household should be treated with a suitable insecticide.
There may be an attachment of single ticks. For this reason transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable.
The product is not suitable for direct treatment of the environment.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
Do not exceed the recommended dosage.
Avoid contact with the animal’s eyes.
Do not spray directly onto areas of broken skin.
Allow treated animals to dry in a well ventilated room.
Do not confine animals in an enclosed space or pet carrier until the coat is totally dry.
It is important to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment.
USE DURING PREGNANCY AND LACTATION
Laboratory studies did not reveal any teratogenic effect of fipronil in the rat and rabbit. Fipronil is very well tolerated by puppies following treatment of the lactating bitch. Data is not available from specific studies during pregnancy in bitches, pregnancy in queens or in nursing queens. The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established, therefore, use only in accordance with the risk/benefit assessment by the veterinarian.
AMOUNTS TO BE ADMINISTERED AND ADMINISTRATION ROUTE
Route of administration:
Mechanical pump spray for external use only.
The pump delivers 0.5 ml (100 ml bottle) or 1.5 ml (250 ml bottle) or 3ml (500 ml bottle) spray per pump.
In order to dampen the coat down to the skin, apply 3 to 6 ml per kg bodyweight, (7.5 to 15 mg of active ingredient per kg bodyweight), depending on the length of hair.
This dosage can be achieved with 6 to 12 pump applications per kg bodyweight of the 100 ml presentation, or 2 to 4 pump applications of the 250 ml presentation or 1 to 2 pump application(s) of the 500 ml presentation.
Depending on the coat length,
the 100 ml presentation allows 4 to 8 treatments of a 4 kg cat or up to 3 treatments of a 10 kg dog,
the 250 ml presentation allows 2 to 4 treatments of a 20 kg dog,
the 500 ml presentation allows 2 to 4 treatments of a 40 kg dog.
METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION:
Spray the entire body of the animal, and apply from a distance of approximately 10-20 cm. Apply against the lay of the hair and make sure that the entire coat of the animal is dampened. Ruffle the coat, especially in long haired animals, so that the product penetrates down to the skin. For treatment of the head region, and when treating young or nervous pets, application may be carried out by spraying onto a gloved hand and rubbing the product into the coat. Allow to dry naturally. Do not towel dry.
PUPPIES AND KITTENS FROM 2 DAYS OF AGE MAY BE SAFELY TREATED.
