Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the other ingredients.
Do not use in rabbits, as adverse reactions and even death could occur.
Do not use in cats, as this could lead to overdosing.
For administration instructions, please see the product pack and leaflet.
When treating infestations of lice, all in-contact dogs should be treated with an appropriate product at the same time.
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 DOG does not prevent ticks from attaching to the animals, but ticks will be killed in the first 24-48 hours after attachment, before they are fully fed and therefore minimising the risk of transmission of diseases. Once dead, ticks will often drop off the animal, but any remaining ticks may easily be removed by a gentle pull.
Bathing or shampooing the animal up to one hour prior to treatment does not affect the effectiveness of the product.
Bathing/immersion in water within 2 days after application of the product and more frequent bathing than once a week should be avoided, as no study has been performed to investigate how this affects the efficacy of the product.
