HOW TO USE: For use on dogs, cats and horses for the control of fleas and ticks. Wet the animal’s coat for 2-3 minutes with warm water. Apply shampoo on head and ears and lather. Then repeat procedure with neck, chest, middle and hindquarters, finishing with the legs last and paying special attention to the footpads (between the toes) and underbody areas. Wash head and ear areas carefully, making sure to keep shampoo out of the animal’s eyes. NOTE: A drop of glycerin in each eye before bathing may prevent or reduce irritation if the shampoo gets in the animal’s eyes. Pay special attention to the base of the tail, as it is a place frequented by fleas. Fully lather animal and let lather remain for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water. NOTE: This final step is an important part of grooming procedure.

For small dogs and cats less than 15 pounds, wrapping the animal in a towel for several minutes to absorb moisture is advised. This will also allow dying fleas and ticks to crawl off animal into towel before drying animal with towel or blow dryer.

Flea and tick control on the animal is only part of the solution to the problem. The inside of the house and the outdoor area used by the animal must also be treated for complete control.
