||Method of application and posology:|
Only by topical application to the skin.
1 pipette of 1.34 ml is sufficient for the treatment of a dog with a body weight of 10 kg up to 20 kg corresponding to a recommended minimum dose of 6.7 mg fipronil/kg body weight.
The minimum interval between two treatments should be not less than 4 weeks.
Advice for the safe application:
Disconnect one of the blisters from the blister card. This helps to avoid accidental opening of the adjacent blister package in order to protect the still unopened pipettes from exposure to humidity. Open the blister with scissors. To avoid damaging of the pipette cut along the line marked with the scissors icon. Carefully peal back the foil from the cut off end and withdraw the pipette.
Hold the pipette upright. Tap lightly to ensure the entire liquid contents are within the main body of the pipette. Bend the upper border strip backwards. Then the pipette can be set aside, if necessary. To open the pipette snap off the top of the pipette along the scored line.
Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette several times to empty its content completely and directly onto the skin in one spot.
Application of the solution near the base of the head minimises the possibility that the animal will lick the solution off. Care should be taken after the application that animals do not mutually lick off the solution.
Care should be taken to avoid excessive wetting of the hair with the product since this will cause a sticky appearance of hairs at the treatment spot.
However should this occur, it will disappear within 24 hours post application.
For the treatment and control of flea allergy it is recommended that allergic patients and all other dogs and cats in the household should be treated at monthly intervals.

||The veterinary medicinal product does not prevent an infestation of the animal by ticks.
Ticks will usually die within 48 hours of infestation, however attached ticks (both live and killed) may be seen at this time. Some of these will have had a blood meal.
Death normally occurs before the ticks are fully engorged so that the risk of transmission of infectious diseases by ticks is minimised, but cannot be completely ruled out. As soon as the ticks are dead they generally fall off the animal; remaining ticks can be removed with a gentle pull.
For the optimal control of flea problems in households with several animals all dogs and cats should be treated with an authorised insecticide.
Fleas from pets often infest animal's baskets, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated, in case of massive infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly.
Shampooing with a medicated shampoo, followed by thorough drying, 1 to 2 hours before treatment application and bathing once weekly over a period of 6 weeks, has been shown not to affect the efficacy of this veterinary medicinal product against fleas. Bathing and intensive wetting of the coat should be avoided for the first 2 days following administration of the veterinary medicinal product.
