FRONTLINE® Spray provides effective flea and tick control for dogs and puppies as young as a day old. The spray formulation ensures that fipronil, the active ingredient, is immediately distributed over your dog's body, killing fleas shortly after application. Control is long lasting, and can also be used with complete peace of mind on pregnant and lactating bitches.
For the treatment and prevention of infestation of fleas and ticks and as an aid in the control of flea allergy dermatitis in dogs. Repeat treatment monthly. In the case of long-haired animals, and/or in the event of a high risk of infestation, or if pets are allergic to fleas or should tick infestation be severe, dose may also be increased to 6 ml per kg.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Use only as directed.
METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION
Bathing or shampooing the animal 3 days before or 3 days after the application is not recommended as this will decrease the duration of activity. 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 wetted. Ruffle the coat, especially in long-haired animals, so that the product penetrates down to the skin. Allow to dry naturally. Do not towel dry.
In order to wet the coat down to the skin, depending on the length of the hair, it is recommended that a minimum 3 ml per kg body mass (7,5 mg of active material per kg body mass) to short-haired animals and 6 ml per kg body mass (15 mg of active material per kg body mass) to long-haired animals be applied.
ROUTE OF ADMINISTRATION
Mechanical pump spray for external use-each trigger application of the 100 ml bottle gives 0,5 ml and each trigger application of the 250/500 ml bottle gives 1,5 ml spray volume. For this control to be effective all dogs and cats in the household should be treated simultaneously.
FRONTLINE® Spray has a residual effect of 1 month (3-5 weeks) against ticks and 2 months (1 -3 months) against fleas, depending on the parasite challenge in the animal's environment. FRONTLINE® Spray may be used on pregnant and lactating females and on unweaned puppies. FRONTLINE® Spray is available from your Veterinary Clinic right now.
