READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE. FOR EXTERNAL USE ON CATS ONLY. Do not use on kittens under 12 weeks of age. Do not treat your cat with more than one pesticide product at a time. Over dosing your cat can result in serious illness and even death. Best if used year round. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, medicated cats. Consult a veterinarian before using on cats with known organ dysfunction. Separate the treated cat from all other cats and dogs for 24 hours after treatment has been applied.

How to open: Remove product tubes from the package. Separate one tube from the others. Holding the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body, cut off the narrow end at the notches with scissors.

Apply contents of one (0.017 fl oz) (0.50 ml) tube of SENTRY® FIPROGUARD™ MAX for Cats as a stripe, starting high on the back of the cat’s neck to in front of the shoulder blades. Hold the cat for a few seconds to give the solution time to be absorbed into the cat’s coat. When finished, wrap the tube in paper and put into the trash. Only one applicator per treatment is needed.
