If ticks of some species are already present when the product is applied, all of the ticks may not be killed within the first 48 hours.

Dosage and administration - External use only.
Administer by topical application to the skin according to the bodyweight as follows:
2 - 10kg 1 pipette of Fipnil Spot-on Solution Dog 67 mg
10 - 20kg 1 pipette of Fipnil Spot-on Solution Dog 134 mg

Over 60kg 2 pipettes of Fipnil Spot-on Solution Dog 268 mg
Method of administration
Remove the pipette from the blister packaging. Hold the pipette upright. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure the contents are within the main body of the pipette. Twist and pull the snap-off top of the pipette to enable the contents to be expelled. Part the pet’s coat until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette directly against the bared skin and squeeze gently to empty its contents at two points along the dog’s back, preferably at the base of the head and between the shoulder blades, emptying approximately half the volume at each site. Squeeze the pipette several times to ensure dosing is complete.
The minimum interval between two treatments is 4 weeks.
To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible.

Do not use Fipnil Spot-On on sick or convalescent animals.

This product is specifically developed for dogs. Do not use in cats, as this could lead to overdosing.
Do not use on animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
The product does not prevent ticks from attaching to the animals. If the animal has been treated prior to exposure to the ticks, the ticks will be killed in the first 24-48 hours after attachment. This will usually be prior to engorgement, minimising but not excluding the risk of transmission of diseases. Once dead, ticks will often drop off the animal, but any remaining ticks may be removed with a gentle pull.
Fleas from pets often infest the animal's basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated, in case of massive flea infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly.
When using Fipnil Spot-On as part of a strategy for the treatment of Flea Allergy Dermatitis, monthly applications to the allergic patient and to other dogs in the household are recommended.
For optimal control of flea infestation in a multi-pet household, all dogs and cats in the household should be treated with a suitable insecticide.
Animals should be weighed accurately prior to treatment.
Avoid contact with the animal’s eyes. In the case of accidental eye contact, immediately and thoroughly flush the eyes with water. It is important to make sure that the product is applied to an area where the animal cannot lick it off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment.
Do not apply the Fipnil on wounds or damaged skin.
Use during pregnancy and lactation: Laboratory studies using fipronil have not shown any evidence of teratogenic or embryotoxic effect. Studies have not been carried out with this product in pregnant and lactating bitches. Use in pregnancy and lactation only in accordance with professional veterinary advice and a benefit/risk assessment.
In the case of accidental eye contact, immediately and thoroughly flush the eyes with water. If eye irritation persists seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
Avoid contents coming into contact with the fingers. If this occurs, wash hands with soap and water. Wash hands after use.
Animals or people with a known hypersensitivity to fipronil or any of the other ingredients should avoid contact with the product.
Treated animals should not be handled until the application site is dry, and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the application site is dry. It is therefore recommended that animals are not treated during the day, but should be treated during the early evening, and that recently treated animals should not be allowed to sleep with owners, especially children.
If licking occurs, a brief period of hypersalivation (excessive production of saliva) may be observed due mainly to the nature of the ingredients.
Fipronil may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Dogs should not be allowed to swim in watercourses for 2 days after application. Dispose of empty packaging and any remaining product in the household refuse. Do not contaminate ponds, water ways or ditches with the product or empty container.
