Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE. USE ONLY ON DOGS.

Follow all precautions and directions. For use on Dogs and Puppies over the age of 12 weeks for control of Fleas and Ticks. Do not repeat treatment for 7 days. Do not use on puppies under 12 weeks. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant, or nursing animals. Sensitivities may occur using any pesticide product for pets. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately.

HOW TO USE: 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, and middle and hindquarters, finishing legs last and paying special attention to the footpads (between the toes) and underbody areas. Wash the head and ear areas carefully, making sure to keep the 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 on animal for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water. NOTE: This final step is an important part of grooming procedure.

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