Uses
For the treatment and prevention of flea (Ctenocephalides canis, Ctenocephalides felis) infestations in dogs only.
Fleas on dogs are killed within one day following treatment. One treatment prevents further flea infestation for four weeks. The product can be used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).
For the treatment of biting lice (Trichodectes canis).
The product has a persistent acaricidal and repellent efficacy against tick infestations (Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes ricinus for four weeks, and Dermacentor reticulatus for three weeks).
By repelling and killing the tick vector Rhipicephalus sanguineus, the product reduces the likelihood of transmission of the pathogen Ehrlichia canis, thereby reducing the risk of canine ehrlichiosis. The reduction in risk has been shown in studies to commence from 3 days following application of the product and to persist for 4 weeks.
Ticks already on the dog may not be killed within two days after treatment and may remain attached and visible. Therefore the removal of ticks already on the dog at the time of treatment is recommended, in order to prevent them from attaching and having a blood meal.
One treatment provides repellent (anti-feeding) activity against sand flies (Phlebotomus papatasi for two weeks and Phlebotomus perniciosus for three weeks), against mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti for two weeks and Culex pipiens for four weeks) and against stable flies (Stomoxys calcitrans) for four weeks.
