Flea and tick treatment and prevention products are effective when used as directed. However, before you buy, it’s important to look at the label to ensure the product you select is right for your pet.
Read the label completely: As with medications for humans, carefully read and follow all label instructions thoroughly before purchase and application.
Weigh your pet: Don’t guess! Be sure to weigh your pet to ensure that your animal’s weight matches the dosage listed on the product package.
Only apply product intended for your pet’s species: Never use a flea and tick treatment and prevention product intended for dogs on a cat and vice versa.
Avoid double dosing: Our squeeze-on products are designed to work alone and NOT in combination with other flea and tick control products. Check the product label of the flea and tick treatment used prior to ensure the recommended time has passed since the last application of any product before applying a new product.
Separate multiple pets: Separating pets ensures that the flea and tick treatment doesn’t rub off or pets lick the product off each other. As with any flea and tick treatment and prevention squeeze-on, even the smallest amount of product that gets into a dog’s or cat’s mouth can cause drooling or foaming — and in rare cases can result in death.
Do NOT divide tube doses between multiple animals: For example, do not use half a dose made for a 40-lb. dog on a 20-lb. dog. Also, do not combine two tubes of a lower weight break for a larger dog. Always use the full tube on the pet per the product’s application guidelines.
