The treatment and prevention of infestations by fleas and ticks. The product controls infestations with Trichodectes canis biting lice on dogs.
Do not use on puppies less than 8 weeks old (and /or weighing less than 2kg) Do not use on animals that are unwell, are undergoing treatment for, or are recovering from illness.
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.
This product is specifically developed for dogs. Do not use in cats, as this could lead to overdosing.
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.
Route of administration
By topical application to the skin.
1 pipette of 0.67 ml per dog weighing over 2 kg and up to 10 kg bodyweight (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 at one or two spots 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.
