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 BEFORE EACH USE. USE ONLY ON HORSES, FERRETS, DOGS AND/OR CATS. Follow all precautions and directions.

For use on Horses, Ferrets, Dogs, Cats, Puppies and Kittens over the age of 12 weeks for the control of fleas and ticks. Do not repeat treatment for 7 days. Do not use on puppies and kittens 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 water. Apply shampoo on head and ears and lather. Then repeat procedure on 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.


A drop of glycerine in each eye before bathing can 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: The final step is an important part of the grooming procedure.

For small dogs and cats under 15 pounds, wrapping the animal in a towel to absorb moisture for several minutes is advised. This also will allow dying fleas and ticks to crawl off pet into towel before drying further with a towel or blow dryer.

Flea and tick control on the pet is only part of the solution to the problem. The inside of the house and the outdoor area used by the pet must also be treated for complete control.
