Adjust the nozzle to the spray setting. Spray the entire body of the animal, and apply from a distance of approximately 10 - 20 cm. Apply against the lay of the hair and make sure the entire coat of the animal is dampened. Ruffle the coat, especially in long haired animals, so that the product penetrates down to the skin. For treatment of the head region, and when treating young and nervous pets, application may be carried out by spraying onto a gloved hand and rubbing the product into the coat. Allow to dry naturally. Do not towel dry.
- Puppies and kittens from 2 days of age may be safely treated.
In order to dampen the coat down to the skin, depending on the length of the hair, apply 3 to 6 ml per kg bodyweight, (7.5 to 15 mg of active ingredient per kg bodyweight) i.e. 6 to 12 pump applications per kg bodyweight of the 100 ml presentation, or 2 to 4 pump applications of the 250 or 500 ml presentations.
The 100ml pack contains approximately 8 treatments for a short haired medium sized cat (4kg). The 250ml pack contains approximately 4 treatments for a short haired medium sized dog (20kg). The 500ml pack contains approximately 8 treatments for a short haired medium sized dog (20kg).
The formulation contains a glossing agent. Therefore, spraying builds up a film and makes the fur glossy. In the absence of safety studies, the minimum treatment interval is 4 weeks.
For animal treatment only. For external use only.
Do not use on sick (systemic diseases, fever...) or convalescent animals. Do not use in rabbits, as adverse reactions and even death could occur. Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.
It is important to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment. If licking occurs, a brief period of hypersalivation may be observed due mainly to the nature of the carrier.
Among the extremely rare suspected adverse reactions, transient cutaneous reactions erythema, pruritis or alopecia have been reported after use. Exceptionally, hypersalivation, reversible neurological signs (hyperaesthesia, depression, nervous signs), vomiting or respiratory signs have been observed after use.
The risk of experiencing adverse effects may increase when overdosing, so animals should always be treated with the correct dose according to bodyweight. Do not overdose. Avoid contact with the animal's eyes. Do not spray directly onto areas of broken skin.
Keep treated animals away from fires, other sources of heat and surfaces likely to be affected by the alcohol spray for at least 30 minutes following spraying or until the fur is totally dry. Do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material.
