Adams Flea & Tick Spot On for Medium Dogs/Puppies (32-55 lbs) Caution

The Smart Shield® Applicator is specially designed to make applying flea and tick control easier and more precise than ever before. You simply insert the appropriate tube for your dog/puppy into the applicator, close it and squeeze to apply. The applicator’s ergonomic, contoured shape makes it easy to grip and the built-in tip helps to spread the dog’s/puppy’s hair to allow the liquid to more readily reach the skin. The tube is sealed inside, so you can be confident that the liquid goes onto your dog/puppy - and not your hand. Plus, if the applicator is laid down on a table, counter or other flat surface, it won’t run out or drip. Adams™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Dogs provides flea and tick protection for dogs/puppies for up to 30-days. This product is water resistant and remains efficacious following exposure to rainfall or swimming.

Do not use more than one tube per dog/puppy and do not retreat more than once per month.

This product is most effective when used as part of a total flea and tick management program. Use other Adams™ products registered for residential area control of these pests in conjunction with this treatment. Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on dogs/puppies may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of dogs/puppies with this product rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition. This product is water resistant and remains efficacious following exposure to rainfall or swimming.

For Use Only On Medium Dogs/puppies (10 Weeks Of Age Or Older)
