Some people think that fleas, ticks and lice are just a problem in the summer. They’re wrong. Your pet needs to be protected regularly whatever the season or it will be susceptible to the irritation – and more serious problems – that these bugs can bring.
Spring - As the weather warms up, fleas and ticks start to breed quicker and quicker.
Summer - The summer months are when your pet is at the most risk. The temperature and humidity can quickly lead to huge infestations and massive problems for your pet and your family.
Autumn - This is the time of year when it’s particularly important to guard against tick infestations and the re-emergence of fleas – especially when you turn on the central heating.
Winter - It might be cold outside but your warm home makes an ideal breeding ground for fleas – the risk to your pet never goes away.
Always read the instructions before use.

Route of administration: mechanical pump spray for external use. Method of administration: Adjust the pump nozzle to spray setting. 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. Posology: In order to dampen the coat down to the skin, depending on the length of hair, apply 3 to 6 ml per kg bodyweight, (7.5 to 15 mg of active ingredient per kg bodyweight). i.e. 6 to 12 pump applications per kg bodyweight of the 100 ml presentation, or 2 to 4 pump applications of the 250 ml and 500 ml presentations.
Dosage can be determined as follows: Short hair cat/dog i.e. hair length less than 2 cm. Dose: 3-4 ml/kg bodyweight 100 ml bottle: 6 pump applications per kg bodyweight 250 ml and 500 ml bottle: 2 pump applications per kg bodyweight Medium hair dog/long hair cat i.e. hair length 2 -4 cm. Dose: 4-5 ml/kg bodyweight 100 ml bottle: 9 pump applications per kg bodyweight 250 ml and 500 ml bottle: 3 pump applications per kg bodyweight Long hair dog/longer hair cat i.e. hair length greater 4 cm. Dose: 5-6 ml/kg bodyweight 100 ml bottle: 12 pump applications per kg bodyweight 250 ml and 500 ml bottle: 4 pump applications per kg bodyweight The 100 ml pack contains approximately 8 treatments for a short haired medium sized cat (4 kg). The 250 ml pack contains approximately 4 treatments for a short haired medium sized dog (20 kg). The 500ml pack contains approximately 8 treatments for a short haired medium sized dog (20 kg). Note length of hair (short, medium, long) is given as an approximate guide and depends on the species. It is important to ensure that the entire coat of the animal is dampened, down to the skin, especially in long haired animals. Properties: The formulation contains a coating agent. Therefore, spraying builds up a film and makes the fur glossy. In the absence of safety studies, the minimum treatment interval is 4 weeks. Puppies and kittens from 2 days of age may be safely treated. For optimal control of flea and/or tick infestation the treatment schedule should be based on the local epidemiological situation.
Do not use on sick (systemic diseases, fever) or convalescent animals. Do not use in rabbits, as adverse reactions and even death could occur. Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
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. 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. The product is not suitable for direct treatment of the environment. 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. (i) Special precautions for use in animals: Do not exceed the recommended dosage. Avoid contact of the product with the animals eyes. In the case of accidental eye contact immediately and thoroughly flush the eyes with water. Do not spray directly onto areas of broken skin. Allow treated animals to dry in a well ventilated room (ii). Do not confine animals in an enclosed space or pet carrier until the coat is totally dry. In the absence of specific tolerance and efficacy data, the product is not recommended for the treatment of species other than cats and dogs. It is important to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment. There may be an attachment of single ticks. For this reason a transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable. Keep treated animals away from fires or other sources of heat, and surfaces likely to be affected by the alcohol spray, for at least 30 minutes following spraying and until the fur is totally dry. Do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material. For external use only. Veterinary medicinal product to the animals This product can cause mucous membrane and eye irritation. Therefore, contact of the product with mouth and eyes should be avoided. People with asthma or known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product. Avoid contents coming into contact with the fingers. If this occurs, wash hands with soap and water. If irritation occurs, seek medical advice. After accidental ocular exposure the eye should be rinsed carefully with plain water. Treated animals should not be handled until the fur is dry, and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the fur 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 are not allowed to sleep with owners, especially children. Spray animals in the open air or a well ventilated room. Do not breathe spray. Do not smoke, drink or eat during application. Wear PVC or nitrile gloves during treatment of animals. It is recommended to wear a waterproof apron for the protection of clothing. If clothing becomes heavily wetted with the product, it should be removed and washed before re-use. Dispose of gloves after use and then wash hands with soap and water. Treatment of multiple animals: Good ventilation is particularly important where several animals are to be treated. Treat multiple animals outside, or reduce the build up of vapour by removing the animals from the treatment room while the alcohol is evaporating and ensure that the treatment room is well ventilated between individual treatments. In addition, ensure that the drying room is well ventilated and avoid housing several recently treated animals within the same air space. (iii) Other precautions: This product is highly flammable. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame or other sources of ignition. Fipronil may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Dogs should not be allowed to swim in watercourses for 2 days after application.
If licking occurs, a brief period of drooling saliva may be observed due mainly to the nature of the carrier. Among the extremely rare suspected adverse reactions, transient skin reactions including inflammation, itching or hair loss have been reported after use.. Exceptionally, drooling saliva, reversible neurological signs (hypersensitivity, depression, nervous signs), vomiting or respiratory signs have been observed after use. Do not overdose.
