The procedure for using the drug
Frontline spray is used against insects and ixodid ticks that parasitize dogs and cats by aerosol application to the skin. The animals are treated outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Before processing, the bottle is thoroughly shaken and, pressing the spray head, direct the aerosol torch from a distance of 10-20 cm to the animal’s body against hair growth. The bottle should be held vertically, spraying the animal’s body, including the abdomen, neck and limbs with the preparation, so that it evenly moistens the skin and hair, after which, to accelerate its penetration into the skin, the preparation should be lightly rubbed (rubber gloves are recommended). To prevent eye contact, apply the drug around the eyes with a dampened cloth. When spraying long-haired animals, I lift the wool with my hand, directing the aerosol against the hair growth. The dose of the drug is 3-6 ml per 1 kg of animal weight, depending on the length of the coat.
The drug is easily dosed: one press on the spray head of a 100 ml bottle provides a dose of 0.5 ml; one press on the spray head of the 250 ml bottle delivers a dose of 1.5 ml; repeated treatments of animals are carried out according to indications, but not more often than once every three months against insects and not more than once a month against ixodid ticks. Until the wool is completely dry, animals should not be allowed to lick the preparation, let them near open fire and heating devices. Within 24 hours after treatment, the animal should not be stroked and kept away from small children. In order to prevent the emergence of fleas and re-infestation, the animals are replaced with litter. There are no side effects and complications when using Frontline-spray.
