FRONTLINE® SPOT-ON DOGS From 10-20kg
Pesticide for dogs weighing 10 to 20 kg
Treatment and prevention of tick infestations (Rhipicephalus spp., Dermacentor spp., Ixodes spp.), Fleas (Ctenocephalides spp.) And lice in adult dogs and puppies. Fipronil rapidly exerts its lethal action on ticks, preventing the development of the parasite and the possible transmission of infections of which the tick is a vector. It is active against the main species of ticks present on the national territory, including Ixodes ricinus, responsible for the transmission of Lyme disease to dogs, cats and humans. Fipronil acts on fleas by rapidly killing adult forms, thus preventing the deposition of eggs and therefore new infestations. Thanks to its lethal action on adult fleas, fipronil effectively contributes to the control and resolution of Flea Allergic Dermatitis (FAD) which, in dogs, is caused by the sensitizing action exerted by the antigens contained in the saliva of these parasites. Fipronil also, with a single treatment, quickly and definitively controls and resolves lice infestations, especially those caused by Trichodectes canis, the dog's biting louse. Fipronil kills fleas within 24 hours; ticks and lice within 48 hours of infestation.
Contraindications / Undesirable Effects
In the absence of data, do not use the product in puppies younger than 8 weeks. Do not use in sick animals (systemic diseases, with fever, etc.) or in convalescing animals. Do not use in rabbits as potentially life-threatening adverse reactions may occur. This product is intended for dogs only. Do not use in cats, to avoid overdose phenomena. Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
One 1.34 ml single-dose pipette for dogs weighing 10 to 20 kg (corresponding to the minimum recommended dose of 6.7 mg / kg of fipronil). Tick protection: up to 1 month after treatment. Flea protection: up to 3 months after treatment. For a correct ectoparasitic prevention it is advisable to carry out monthly treatments in the periods of greater seasonality. Apply the product on the skin of the interscapular area, an area where the dog does not get to lick itself, avoiding the removal of the product. Fipronil diffuses into the epidermis, concentrating in the sebaceous glands of the hair follicles, in the 24 hours following application. Baths, rain, shampoos do not interfere with the duration of activity of the product against ectoparasites.
Store in a dry place at temperatures not exceeding 30 degrees C.
It is important that the product is applied in an area where the animal cannot lick and take care that the animals do not lick each other after the treatment. Avoid contact with the animal's eyes. In case of accidental contact with the eyes, wash immediately and abundantly with water. Do not apply the product on wounds or broken skin. It is advisable to avoid immersion in water or baths in the 2 days following the application of the product and baths more frequently than once a week, since there are no data available to demonstrate how much this affects the activity of the product. Emollient shampoos can be used before treatment, but if used weekly after applying the product, they reduce the duration of protection against fleas to about 5 weeks. Weekly baths with 2% chlorhexidine medicated shampoos did not reduce the product's efficacy against fleas in a 6-week study. It is advisable not to allow dogs to swim in streams for 2 days after applying the product. If the dog has been treated before exposure to ticks, they will be eliminated in the first 24-48 hours after the attack, i.e. before the completion of the meal, reducing but not excluding the risk of disease transmission. Once dead, the ticks will fall off the animals, any remaining ticks can be easily removed by pulling them lightly. Fleas present on animals often infest the animal's bed, blankets and areas where the animal lives, in particular carpets, curtains and furnishing fabrics; these, in case of massive infestations and at the beginning of the pesticide treatment, can be treated with an insecticide. For optimal control of flea infestations it is advisable to treat all cohabiting animals. Precautions for the person administering the product: the product can cause irritation to the mucous membranes and eyes. It is therefore advisable to avoid contact with the mouth and eyes. In case of accidental contact with the eyes, wash immediately and abundantly with water. If eye irritation persists consult a doctor. Avoid contact with the drug to animals or people with known sensitivity to insecticides or alcohol. Avoid that the contents come into contact with your hands; if so, wash them with soap and water. Wash hands after use. Do not touch animals and do not let children play with treated animals until the application site is dry. It is therefore advisable not to treat the animals during the day, but to treat them in the evening. Overdose: In the safety studies no side effects were observed in puppies of 8 weeks of age, in growing dogs and in dogs weighing approximately 2 kg, treated once at doses five times higher than the recommended dose. The risk of the occurrence of adverse reactions may however increase in case of overdose, therefore animals should always be treated with the pipette of the size corresponding to their body weight.
If the animals lick each other, a transient hypersalivation may be observed mainly due to the excipients of the product. Among the extremely rare phenomena of suspected adverse reactions, transient skin reactions at the application site (skin discoloration, local alopecia, pruritus, erythema), diffuse pruritus or alopecia after application have been described. Exceptionally, hypersalivation, reversible neurological symptoms (hyperesthesia, abatement, nervous symptoms), vomiting or respiratory symptoms have been observed.
