PREVENTIC™ Topical Solution Medium Dog will control fleas, ticks and lice on dogs within 1 day of treatment and will continue to protect the dog from further flea, tick and lice infestation for at least 4 weeks. PREVENTIC™ Topical Solution Medium Dog also kills mosquitoes. Re-infestation from the emergence of new fleas and ticks in the environment may continue to occur for 6 weeks or longer after treatment is initiated. Re-treatment at monthly intervals is required if re-infestation is continuous or if flea and tick control is desired. If re-treatment becomes necessary earlier than 4 weeks, do not re-treat more than once weekly. For effective flea, tick and lice 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. Shampooing of the dog may shorten the duration of protection, therefore, re-application following shampooing is recommended. The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of pets with PREVENTIC™ Topical Solution Medium Dog rapidly kills fleas and may reduce incidence of this condition. For use on pregnant/lactating animals, consult your veterinarian.
