Follow all precautions and directions. For use on cats over the age of 12 weeks for control of fleas and ticks. Do not repeat treatment for 7 days. Do not use on kittens under 12 weeks.
How to use: Wet the animal's coat for 2-3 minutes with warm water. Apply shampoo on head and ears and lather. Repeat procedure with neck, chest, and middle and hindquarters, finishing legs last and paying special attention to the footpads (between the toes) and underbody areas. Wash the head and ear areas carefully, making sure to keep the shampoo out of your pet's eyes. NOTE: Adding Puralube Vet Ointment (item #76855) to each eye before bathing may prevent or reduce irritation if shampoo gets in the animal's eyes. Pay special attention to the base of the tail, as it is a place frequented by fleas. Fully lather animal and let lather remain on animal for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water. NOTE: This final step is an important part of grooming procedure.
For small cats less than 15 lbs, wrapping the animal in a towel for several minutes to absorb moisture is advised. This also will allow dying fleas and ticks to crawl off animal into the towel before drying animal with a towel or blow drier.
For indoor use only. Not for use in outdoor residential misting systems or outdoor metered release systems. DO NOT TREAT CATS UNDER 7 MONTHS OF AGE. Do not use in aircraft cabins. Do not wet articles to point of runoff or drip. Do not use treated article until spray has dried. Application of this product is prohibited directly into sewers or drains, or to any area like a gutter where drainage to storm sewers, storm drains, water bodies, or aquatic habitat can occur. Do not allow this product to enter any drain during or after application.
For cats: Cover animal's eyes with a hand. Do not spray directly on mouth, nose, or eyes. Spray head, ears, and chest until damp. With fingertips, rub into face and around mouth, nose, and eyes. Then spray from neck to tail, finishing legs last. For best penetration of spray to skin and on heavy-coated animals, direct spray against the natural lay of the hair, spraying the ruffled hair directly behind your hand. Make sure the spray thoroughly wets ticks. When used on cats, towel-dry the animal after ½ hour if not totally dry. Avoid contact with genitalia. Repeat as required, but not more often than once every 7 days (1 week).
For kittens over 7 months: Wrap the animal in a towel that has been sprayed lightly with this product. Leave eyes, nose, and mouth exposed. Put some spray on the finger and gently rub around eyes, nose, and mouth area. Keep animal wrapped for 5-10 minutes. Fleas may then be removed from the coat by picking or combing. For best results, all cats should be treated with a similar flea control product such as Advantage Treatment Spray for Cats to prevent reinfestation. Do not spray directly on kittens. Avoid contact with genitalia. Repeat as required, but not more often than once every 14 days (2 weeks).
