ADVERSE REACTIONS
The following local reactions may be observed at the application site: fur discoloration, local alopecia or pruritus. Local cosmetic effects at the application site, such as a greasy appearance or clumpiness of hair are common. However, those signs disappear within 48 hours of the application.

A brief period of hypersalivation may occur if the animal licks the application site immediately after treatment. This is not a sign of intoxication and disappears within minutes without treatment. Correct application will minimise licking of the application site.

ADVICE ON CORRECT ADMINISTRATION

For external use only.

Remove one pipette from the package. Then hold it in an upright position. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure the contents remain within the widest part. Break the top of the snap-off top along the scored line.

Part the coat on the back of the animal between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze it gently several times at one or two spots to empty the contents onto the skin. Apply the 5 ml pipette to 2-3 spots down the backline of large dogs so as to prevent run-off.

When administering the product, try to avoid wetting the fur as this will lead to a clogged appearance. However, should this happen it will disappear within 2 days.

In cases of heavy infestation with fleas prior to treatment, the dog’s surrounding should be vacuumed and treated with a suitable insecticide.
