The Vet-Kem® Applicator is specially designed to make applying flea and tick control easier and more precise than ever before. You simply insert the appropriate tube for your dog/puppy into the applicator, close it and squeeze to apply. The applicator’s ergonomic, contoured shape makes it easy to grip and the built-in tip helps to spread the dog’s/puppy’s hair to allow the liquid to more readily reach the skin. The tube is sealed inside, so you can be confident that the liquid goes onto your dog/puppy - and not your hand. Plus, if the applicator is laid down on a table, counter or other flat surface, it won’t run out or drip. Vet-Kem® Flea And Tick Spot On® For Dogs provides flea and tick protection for dogs/puppies for up to 30 days. This product is water resistant and remains efficacious following exposure to rainfall or swimming.

This product is most effective when used as part of a total flea and tick management program. Use other Vet-Kem® products registered for residential area control of these pests in conjunction with this treatment. Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on dogs/puppies may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of dogs/puppies with this product rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.

Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. IMPORTANT! READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE. FOR USE ONLY ON DOGS/PUPPIES (10 WEEKS OF AGE OR OLDER & GREATER THAN 6 POUNDS). DO NOT USE ON OTHER ANIMALS! Read and follow all directions and precautions on the product label.

USE RESTRICTIONS: THIS PRODUCT IS FOR INDOOR USE ONLY. Do not allow children to apply this product. Do not apply this product to puppies less than 10 weeks of age, and do not apply this product to other animals! Do not allow your dog/puppy to ingest this product. Apply this product once every 30 days. Do not use more than one tube per dog/puppy and do not retreat more than once per month. Do not use on cats.

Vet-Kem® Flea And Tick Spot On® For Dogs works by application directly to the dog’s/puppy’s skin, not to the hair. When applying, use applicator device tip to push aside dog’s/puppy’s hair to allow direct application to the skin. Do not get this product in dog’s/puppy’s eyes or mouth.

FOR USE ONLY ON MEDIUM (32-55 LBS.) DOGS/PUPPIES (10 WEEKS OF AGE OR OLDER)

To apply the treatment, use one disposable liquid tube for each application with the applicator device.

1. OPEN: Use finger scoop to lift open door.

2. LOAD: To load, place tube WHITE SIDE UP under the red tabs.

3. CLOSE: Close the red door and the tube will snap open.

4. APPLY: The dog should be standing for easy application. To apply, use tip to part hair and get next to dog’s/puppy’s skin. Press circle on red door once at each of three evenly placed spots between the shoulder to the base of the tail.

Do not apply an excessive amount of the solution at any one spot that could cause some of the solution to run off the side of the dog/puppy. Do not spread this product by hand over the dog/puppy. Although the dog’s/puppy’s skin and hair oils will distribute the application over the entire dog/puppy, brushing the dog/puppy 12-24 hours after treatment will help to distribute the material over the skin.

5. DISPOSE: To dispose of empty tube, open red door and drop empty tube into trash or offer for recycling, if available.

NOTE: Each package contains sufficient tubes for 3 applications.

In case of emergency or for product information, call 1-888-241-9545 or contact your veterinarian if your pet is experiencing an adverse event.
