Uses The treatment and prevention of flea and tick infestations in cats. The product controls infestations with Felicola subrostratus biting lice on cats.
Do not use on kittens less than 8 weeks old and/or weighing less than 1 kg.
Do not use on animals that are unwell, are undergoing treatment for, or are recovering from illness.
Do not use in rabbits, as adverse drug reactions and even death could occur.
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the other ingredients.
When treating infestations of lice, all in-contact cats should be treated with an appropriate product at the same time.
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.
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 infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly.
FRONTLINE Spot On Cat prevents re-infestation with all stages of Rhipicephalus spp. Dermacentor spp. and Ixodes spp. ticks for up to one month, depending on the level of environmental challenge.
Route of administration
By topical application to the skin.
1 pipette of 0.5 ml per cat (approximately 7.5 - 15 mg/kg).
Method of administration
Hold upright. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure the contents are within the main body of the pipette. Break back the snap-off top from the spot-on pipette along the scored line. Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette against the skin and squeeze gently to empty its contents directly onto the skin, preferably at two spots, one at the base of the skull and a second 2-3cms further back. 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. In the absence of safety studies, the minimum treatment interval is 4 weeks.
