Adverse reactions
If there is licking, a short period of hypersalivation may be observed mainly due to the nature of the excipients.
Among the extremely rare suspected adverse reactions, transient skin reactions at the application site (skin discoloration, local alopecia, pruritus, erythema) general pruritus and alopecia have been reported after use. After use, hypersalivation, reversible neurological symptoms (hyperesthesia, depression, nervous symptoms), vomiting and respiratory symptoms have been exceptionally reported.

Special warnings for each target species:
Shampooing one hour before treatment does not affect the effectiveness of the flea product.
Baths or immersions in water within 2 days after applying the product should be avoided.
Weekly immersion in water for 1 minute reduces the persistence of the insecticidal efficacy against fleas by one week.

The product does not prevent the attack of ticks on animals. If the animal has been treated prior to exposure to ticks, they will be killed in the first 24 to 48 hours after the attack. This will happen before the meal is completed, reducing but not excluding the risk of disease transmission. Once dead, the ticks will fall off the animals, any remaining ticks can be easily removed by pulling them lightly.
Dog fleas often also infest the pet's kennel, beds or rest areas such as carpets and cushions which, in case of massive infestations, must be treated at the beginning of the implementation of control measures, with appropriate insecticides and cleaned regularly. .

When used as part of a strategic program for the treatment of Flea Allergic Dermatitis, monthly application is recommended for allergic patients and other dogs in the family.
For optimal control of flea infestation in the presence of promiscuous groups of animals, all dogs and cats in the family / group should be treated with an appropriate insecticide.
Special precautions for use in animals:
Animals must be carefully weighed before treatment.
Avoid contact with animals' eyes. In case of accidental contact with the eyes, wash the eyes immediately and abundantly with water.
It is important to ensure that the product is applied to an area where the animal cannot lick it and to ensure that animals do not lick each other after the treatment.
