Treatment of flea (Ctenocephalides spp.) and biting/chewing lice (Trichodectes canis) infestations in dogs.
Insecticidal efficacy against new infestations with adult fleas persists for up to 8 weeks. Newly arriving fleas are killed within 48 hours of landing on the animal. The product can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) where this has been previously diagnosed by a veterinary surgeon.
The product has not demonstrated an immediate acaricidal effect against ticks but has demonstrated persistent acaricidal efficacy for up to 4 weeks against Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Dermacentor reticulatus and up to 3 weeks against Ixodes Ricinus. If ticks of these species are present when the product is applied, all the ticks may not be killed within the first 48 hours but they may be killed within a week.
