SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING.

FOR FLEAS: A light, even coverage of the hair coat will provide effective flea control. Do not allow spray from application or damp pet to come into contact with painted or finished surfaces, including wood floors/furniture, leather/vinyl materials, or other surfaces of concern. For best results, ruffle the coat while spraying against the natural lay of the hair. Cover pet’s eyes with hand. With a firm, fast stroke, spray head, ears, and chest. If you see a tick, spray it directly. With cloth, rub on face around mouth, nose, and eyes. Then spray the neck, middle and hind quarters, finishing with legs and tail last. Avoid spraying rectum and genitals. For all pets, spray until damp, not saturated. Do not allow pets to become chilled. If your pet becomes reinfested with adult fleas or ticks, Adams™ Flea & Tick Spray may be reapplied every two weeks after the initial application. Continue treatments for prevention of flea infestation.

TREATMENT DOSAGE: Treatment dosage is based on pet weight, so pet should be weighed before treatment. Note that the labeled dose is about 4 squeezes of the trigger sprayer per pound of body weight. Short-haired pets may need less. In all cases, spray until the coat is damp, not saturated. Adams™ Flea & Tick Spray is most effective when used as part of a total flea and tick management program. Use other Adams™ products registered for residential premise control (carpets, upholstery and pet bedding) of these pests in conjunction with this treatment. Monthly premise treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of pets with Adams™ Flea & Tick Spray kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.
