Method of Application
FIPROVET DROP Dog Dropping Solution is a clear solution in yellow-amber color.
AREA OF USE / INDICATIONS
It is used for the treatment and protection of flea (Ctenocephalides spp.), tick (Ixodes ricinus, Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and biting lice (Trichodectes canis) infestations in dogs and for supportive purposes in the treatment of flea-induced allergic dermatitis.
APPLICATION AND DOSAGE
Unless recommended otherwise by the veterinarian;
When the pharmacological dose of fipronil is 6.7 mg/kg and S-methoprenin is 6 mg/kg, it is administered as follows:
• A 0.67 ml tube up to 2 -10 kg body weight
• A 1.34 ml tube per 10-20 kg body weight
• A 2.68 ml tube per 20-40 kg body weight
• If the body weight is over 40 kg, a 4.02 ml tube
The cap of the tube is unscrewed. In the dog, the hair cover between the two shoulder heads is manually opened to reveal the skin.
The tip of the tube is placed on the skin, and by squeezing the tube, the contents are poured onto the skin as a drop or two or a short line.
It is recommended to repeat the treatment with an interval of 1 month.
UNDESIRED SIDE EFFECTS
If the animal licks the medicated area, short-term hypersalivation may occur. Transient skin reactions (skin discoloration, local alopecia, pruritus, erythema) and generalized pruritus or alopecia at the application site have been reported, albeit very rarely. As an exception, excessive salivation, reversible neurological symptoms (hyperesthesia, depression, nervous symptoms) or vomiting have been reported.
