Treatment schedule:
For optimal control of flea and tick infestations, the veterinary medicinal product should be administered at monthly intervals and continue throughout the flea and/or tick season based on local epidemiological situations.
For the treatment of ear mite infestations (Otodectes cynotis) a single dose should be administered. A further veterinary examination 30 days after treatment is recommended as some animals may require a second treatment.
For the treatment of sarcoptic mange (caused by Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis) a single dose should be administered at monthly intervals for two consecutive months.
For the treatment of demodicosis (caused by Demodex canis) the administration of a single dose once monthly for three consecutive months is efficacious and leads to a marked improvement of clinical signs. Treatment should be continued until skin scrapings are negative on at least two consecutive occasions one month apart. As demodicosis is a multi-factorial disease, it is advisable to also treat any underlying disease appropriately.
