Spectra Shield (over 56 lbs) Caution

Spectra SHIELD™ medallion is a collar medallion that contains a powerful synergized pyrethroid insecticide that kills adult fleas and all blood-feeding stages of ticks, yet exhibits very low toxicity to animals and humans.

READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE.

USE ONLY ON DOGS.

Precautionary Statements

HAZARDS TO HUMANS. CAUTION. May be harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet.

Environmental Hazards

This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. Do not contaminate water by disposal of used collar medallion. Use this product only as specified on the label.

Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

DO NOT USE ON PUPPIES LESS THAN 6 MONTHS OF AGE.

For dogs weighing 56 pounds or greater, use one 8 gram medallion. This 8 gram product may only be used on dogs weighing 56 pounds or greater. May not be used on dogs weighing 55 pounds or less. This product takes a few days to show maximum efficacy.

Remove medallion from package and attach to “D-ring” on existing collar as illustrated in Steps 1 through 3.

The completed medallion must swing freely from the “D-ring” on the collar. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged or medicated animals. If used on pregnant or nursing dogs, do not replace medallion until puppies are at least 6 weeks old. Sensitivity may occur after using ANY pesticide product for pets. Any pesticidal collar or collar attachment may irritate some animals. If irritation continues, remove the product from the animal. 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. As the Spectra SHIELD™ medallion is depleted of insecticide, ticks and fleas may be again noticed on your pet indicating it is time to replace the attachment or replace the attachment after 4 months, whichever comes first. DO NOT USE ON CATS. The safety of this product has not been determined on cats.
