DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Do not allow children to apply product. Use on dogs ONLY. Do not use on cats, rabbits, or other animals. Do not apply more than once per month.
FREQUENCY OF APPLICATION:
Certifect detaches ticks when applied to a dog with a pre-existing infestation. Do not apply more than once a month. Research demonstrates that Certifect kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis and Ct. canis), flea eggs, and flea larvae for up to three months. Certifect also prevents development of all flea stages for up to three months. Although Certifect can control fleas for up to three months, if there is a high risk of reinfestation or if the pet has fleas which may cause flea allergy dermatitis, a once monthly application may be needed.
