The product does not prevent ticks from attaching to the animals. Once dead, ticks will often drop off the animal, but any remaining ticks may be removed with a gentle pull. The product prevents re-infestation with all stages of ticks (Dermacentor Reticulatus) for four weeks, depending on the level of environmental challenge.
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. The product prevents re-infestation with all stages of ticks (Dermacentor Reticulatus) for four weeks, depending on the level of environmental challenge.
For optimal control of flea infestation in a multi-pet household, all dogs and cats in the household should be treated with a suitable insecticide.
