How to Apply:

ONLY for dogs weighing over 33 lbs., the contents of this package provides a 3 month supply. Do not apply to dogs weighing less than 33 lbs.

1. Remove product tube from the package. Holding tube with top end pointing up and away from the face and body, cut off top end. 2. Use open end to part the dog’s coat to expose the skin between the shoulder blades, at the nape of the neck, then squeeze approximately one-half the contents of one tube onto the exposed skin. 3. Next, part the dog’s coat at the base of the tail, then squeeze the remaining contents of the tube onto exposed skin. If the dog’s coat is subsequently wetted, such as when shampooing, the 4 week period of protection may be reduced.

Additional precautions to protect your dog: 1. Do not massage the drops into the dog’s skin. Avoid applying to the dog’s fur. 2. Do not administer any other flea control product to your dog during the 4 week period of protection. 3. Retreat after 28 days if infestation is apparent.
