advantage® 55 Flea Adulticide will control fleas on dogs within 1 day of treatment and will continue to protect the dog from further flea infestation for at least 4 weeks. Reinfestation from the emergence of new fleas in the environment may continue to occur for 6 weeks or longer after treatment is initiated. Reapply every 4 weeks for continual pest control in situations where there is an ongoing risk of pest infestation. Treatment must only be repeated if pest problem reoccurs. If re-treatment becomes necessary earlier than 4 weeks, do not retreat more than once weekly.
Shampooing of the dog may shorten the duration of flea protection, therefore, re-application following shampooing may be necessary.
For effective flea control, treatment of the pet should be combined with the sanitation of any area used by the pet. Vacuum floors, carpets and furniture (discard vacuum bag after use) and wash the pet’s bedding, living quarters and surrounding areas. If pest problems persist an insecticidal premise treatment may be required. A veterinarian should be consulted when flea infestation continues to be a problem on the pet.
The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of pets with advantage® 55 Flea Adulticide rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.
advantage® 55 Flea Adulticide is safe to use concurrently with commonly used veterinary products. Consult your veterinarian before using on animals receiving drug treatment.
For use on pregnant/lactating animals consult your veterinarian.
