  • Method of administration

Step 1: Open the sachet and remove the applicator, immediately before use. Put on gloves. In order to open it, the applicator must be held in a vertical position (end upwards), by the base or by the rigid upper part under the tip. Turn the “twist and use” tip fully clockwise or counterclockwise. The tip remains on the applicator; it is not possible to remove it. The applicator is open and ready for application when the seal is broken.

Step 2: The cat must stand or lie down, with its back horizontal, for easy application. Place the tip of the applicator at the base of the cat’s skull.

Step 3: Squeeze the applicator gently and apply its entire contents directly to the cat’s skin. The product should be applied to one point at the base of the skull on cats up to 6.25 kg body weight, and to two points on cats with body weight greater than 6.25 kg.

  • Treatment program

For optimal control of tick and flea infestation, the product should be administered at 12-week intervals.

For the treatment of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) infestations, a single dose of the product should be applied. A repeat veterinary examination 28 days after treatment is recommended as some animals may require additional treatment with another product.
