GENERAL INFORMATION:

Directions For Use

Do NOT administer by mouth. Use only in well-ventilated areas, preferably outdoors. Shake can well before using. Cover animal’s eyes with hand and with a firm, fast stroke, spray head, ears and chest until damp, but not soaked. With fingertips, rub into face around mouth, nose and eyes. Then spray the neck, middle and hind quarters finishing with legs. Make sure spray thoroughly wets ticks. For best results, spray against natural lay of the hair, rub in well and, following the natural lay of the hair, wipe off excess with dry cloth and then brush. The application of 8.5 mL of Vet-Kem Ovitrol Plus for Dogs & Cats (with Precor®) per kilogram of body weight (i.e. 6 squeezes of the trigger sprayer per kilogram) will provide effective flea control. Repeat only as necessary (i.e. only if flea infestation on pet is evident). Given the residual control afforded by Vet-Kem Ovitrol Plus for Dogs & Cats (with Precor®), the application of this product once every 2 months should be adequate. In exceptional circumstances, where there is a heavy external source of adult fleas re-infesting the animal, re-treatment may be increased to once per week. Do not use this spray more often than once every week. Bathing of the animal may affect product efficacy. Do not treat eyes or genitals. Do NOT use on nursing animals or on dogs or cats under 12 weeks of age. Consult a veterinarian before using on sick, aged or pregnant animals or animals receiving drug or other pesticide treatment. Treatment must only be repeated if pest problem reoccurs.

For effective flea and tick control, treatment of the pet should be combined with 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 treatment of the premises may be required (e.g. Vet-Kem Siphotrol® products). A veterinarian should be consulted when pest infestation continues to be a problem on the pet. DO NOT apply to surfaces that may come into contact with food/feed. Cover or remove all food/feed. Cover all food/feed processing surfaces, equipment and utensils or thoroughly wash following treatment.
