Directions For Use
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Read the entire label, directions for use and frequency of application each time before using the product. Do not allow children to apply product. Do not allow children to come in contact with the treated animal until after the application has dried. Do not use on cats or kittens < 8 weeks of age and weighing < 1.8 lbs. Do not double dose cats. Do not allow your cat to ingest this product.
FREQUENCY OF APPLICATION
To kill fleas and prevent reinfestations, apply one applicator tube, once a month, to cats and kittens 8 weeks of age and older and weighing 1.8 lbs or more as follows:
HOW TO APPLY
1. Remove one applicator tube from the blister package.
2. Hold applicator tube in an upright position.
3. Press cap down until it clicks (indicating the tube has been punctured). Hold upright and remove cap. Check to be sure there is an opening at the tip of tube.
4. Part the hair on the neck at the base of the head until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube directly above the skin and squeeze the tube 2-4 times to expel the contents of the tube directly on the skin. For best results, apply at the base of the head, not between shoulder blades. Avoid getting the product in your cat’s eyes or mouth. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for the cat to directly lick the product. (There may be a small residual remaining in the tube after a full dose is expelled.)
5. Discard empty applicator tube in the trash.
Monthly application is recommended to prevent and treat flea infestations. Cheristin™ for cats starts working in 30 minutes and continues killing fleas for a full month after application.
