LIST OF ACTIVE SUBSTANCE(S) AND OTHER INGREDIENTS

1 mL contains:
Active substance(s):
Fipronil ......................... 2.5 mg
Excipient QS 1 mL

INDICATION(S)

For cats and dogs: 

- Treatment of infestations by fleas (Ctenocephalides spp.).
- Treatment of infestations by ticks (Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus).
- Treatment of infestations by biting lice in dogs (Trichodectes canis) and in cats (Felicola subrostratus).

The product can be incorporated into a flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) treatment programme.

The insecticidal effectiveness against new infestations by adult fleas persists for up to 6 weeks in cats and up to 3 months in dogs, depending on the environmental context.

The period of the acaricidal efficacy of the product is 4 weeks against ticks, depending on the environmental extent of infestation.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Do not use with sick (e.g. systemic diseases, fever) or convalescing animals.
Do not use on rabbits, as there may be adverse effects which can sometimes result in death.
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.

ADVERSE EFFECTS

If the animal licks itself, a brief episode of hypersalivation may be observed, mainly related to the nature of the solvent.

Properties:

The formula contains a covering agent among the excipients. The spray therefore creates a film which is deposited on the coat and makes it shiny.

Treatment plan:

To combat flea and/or tick infestations effectively, the treatment plan may take account of the local epidemiological situation.
In the absence of any non-toxicity studies the minimum interval between treatments is 4 weeks.
Puppies and kittens can be treated from the age of 2 days.

SPECIFIC INSRUCTIONS FOR STORAGE

Very flammable.
Do not store at temperatures exceeding 25°C.
Keep out of direct sunlight.
Shelf life after the immediate packaging is opened for the first time: 1 year.
Do not use this veterinary medicinal product after the expiry date stated on the bottle after EXP.

SPECIFIC CAUTION(S)

Cautions specific to each target species

Do not exceed the prescribed dose.
Do not get in the animal’s eyes.
Do not spray directly on areas of damaged skin.
Ensure that the treated animals are allowed to dry in a well-ventilated room (see also section ""Special precautions for use"").
Do not confine animals in an enclosed space or in an animal transportation bag until the coat is completely dry.
In the absence of specific data on tolerance and effectiveness, it is not recommended to use the product with species other than dogs and cats.
In the context of a flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) treatment programme, a monthly application of the product on the allergic animal as well on other cats and dogs in the household is recommended.
For optimal effectiveness, it is recommended not to bathe the animals or to shampoo them in the two days preceding or following the treatment with the product. It has been shown that giving baths or shampoos up to 4 times in a two-month period had no significant effect on the residual effectiveness of the product.
A monthly treatment is recommended for more frequent shampoos.

The areas where the animal usually lies down such as carpets, sofas, car interiors, etc. should be treated with an appropriate insecticide which will help to treat the environment and maximise the period of protection from re-infestation provided by the product. In order to combat flea problems in the best way possible, in a household where there are several animals, all the dogs and cats in the household should be treated with an appropriate insecticide.

Special precautions for use with the animal

Make sure that the animals do not lick each other after treatment.
It is possible that isolated ticks will attach themselves. For this reason, under unfavourable conditions the transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely ruled out.
The product is not suitable for direct treatment of the environment.
Keep animals away from fire or all sources of heat, and surfaces that may be damaged by the spraying of alcohol, at least for 30 minutes after spraying and until the coat is completely dry.

Special precautions to be taken by the person who administers the veterinary medicinal product to the animals

This product may cause irritation to the mucous membranes and the eyes. This is why you should avoid contact between the product and the mouth or the eyes.
Animals or users with known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with the product. Avoid touching the contents with your fingers. If this occurs, wash your hands with soap and water. In the event of accidental eye exposure, rinse eyes thoroughly with clean water. Until the coat is dry, treated animals should not be handled and children should not be allowed to play with the treated animals. It is therefore recommended not to treat animals during the day but rather in the early evening, and not to let animals that have just been treated sleep with their owners, especially with children.
Spray the product on animals in the open air or in a well-ventilated room.
Do not breathe the product in. Do not smoke, drink or eat while applying the product.
Wear PVC or nitrile gloves when treating animals. It is recommended to wear a waterproof apron to protect clothing. If clothing is sprayed to a significant extent with the product, it should be removed and washed before it can be worn again.
Discard gloves after use and wash your hands with soap and water.
Wash any spills on the skin immediately with soap and water. If irritation occurs, get immediate medical advice/attention. People with known sensitivity or suffering from asthma may be particularly sensitive to the product. Do not use the product if you have already experienced reactions to the product.

Treatment of several animals: good ventilation of the treatment area is particularly important when several animals are treated. To treat several animals, apply the product outside, or limit the accumulation of vapours by bringing the animals out of the room where they have been treated while the alcohol evaporates, and make sure that the room is well ventilated between two individual treatments.
Also, ensure that the drying room is well ventilated and avoid placing several recently-treated animals in the same atmosphere.

Other precautions

Fipronil can have an adverse effect on aquatic organisms. Do not allow dogs to bathe in waterways for 2 days following application.
Use during gestation or lactation
Laboratory studies have not revealed teratogenic effects from fipronil in rats and rabbits. Fipronil is very well tolerated in puppies after treatment of lactating females. No data from specific studies on the use of the product during pregnancy in female dogs, cats or the period of lactation in cats is available. The non-toxicity of the medicinal product has not been established and so it should only be used after a benefit/risk assessment has been carried out by the vet.

Interaction with other veterinary medicinal products and other forms of interaction: None known.

Excessive dose

The risk of adverse effects may increase if you exceed the dose.
In case of excessive dose, apply an appropriate symptomatic treatment.

Incompatibility: Not known.

Anti-Flea Anti-Tick Spray

Can I use the anti-parasite spray on my kitten?

Yes, the anti-flea, anti-tick and anti-lice spray can be administered on a kitten from the 2nd day after birth. The spray dosage to be applied will depend on the weight of the animal, at a rate of 3 to 6 ml per kilogram.

Anti-Flea Anti-Tick Spray

Fleas and ticks are present throughout the year, in towns and in the countryside. Check your cat regularly, especially if it usually goes outside, where the risk of catching fleas or ticks is higher. Fleas or ticks like to lodge themselves in and around your cat’s ears, at the base of the tail and on the stomach. 

Also check your cat's environment (toys, scratching posts, baskets, litter boxes, carpets, etc.), as the parasites can lodge anywhere in the house.

If you notice the presence of fleas or ticks on your cat's coat or skin, treat your animal promptly with a product which kills parasites, to reduce the risk of diseases caused by bites.
