Virbac EFFIPRO Plus Flea & Tick Spot Treatment for Dogs, 5-22.9 lbs, 6 Doses (6-mos. supply)
- Select Appropriate Dose: Choose the correct dose of EFFIPRO Plus based on your dog's weight. Refer to the product label or consult your veterinarian for the proper dosage.
- Prepare Application Site: Part your dog's fur between the shoulder blades to expose the skin. Ensure the area is dry and free from any cuts or irritation.
- Apply Solution: Hold the pipette upright and snap off the tip. Part the fur and place the tip directly onto the skin. Squeeze the pipette firmly to empty the contents onto the skin in one spot.
- Administer Entire Dose: Empty the entire contents of the pipette onto the skin. Avoid applying the solution onto the fur, as it needs direct contact with the skin to be effective.
- Prevent Licking: Prevent your dog from licking the application site until the solution has dried completely. This usually takes a few hours.
- Repeat as Directed: Follow the recommended dosing schedule provided by your veterinarian or on the product label. Reapply EFFIPRO Plus according to the frequency recommended for continuous protection against fleas and ticks.
- Monitor for Adverse Reactions: Keep an eye on your dog for any signs of adverse reactions, such as skin irritation or excessive grooming. If any adverse reactions occur, consult your veterinarian immediately.
