FIPRODOG SPOT ON 134MG (MEDIUM DOG)
Uses - Fiprodog
Target species: Dog (10 - 20 kg).
For the treatment of dogs against flea infestations (Ctenocephalides spp.).
Insecticidal efficacy against new infestation with fleas persists for up to 6 weeks.
The product can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD), where this has been previously diagnosed by a veterinary surgeon.
Although the product does not consistently show an immediate acaricidal efficacy (several ticks may be present after 48 hours), it has a persistent acaricidal efficacy for up to 4 weeks against Dermacentor variabilis and up to 3 weeks against Rhipicephalus sanguineus.
Dosage and administration - Fiprodog
Method of application and posology: Only by topical application to the skin.
1 pipette of 1.34 ml is sufficient for the treatment of a dog with a body weight of 10 kg up to 20 kg corresponding to a recommended minimum dose of 6.7 mg fipronil/kg body weight.
The minimum interval between two treatments should be not less than 4 weeks.
Advice on correct administration: Disconnect one of the blisters from the blister card. This helps to avoid accidental opening of the adjacent blister package in order to protect the still unopened pipettes from exposure to humidity. Open the blister with scissors. To avoid damaging the pipette cut along the line marked with the scissors icon. Carefully peel back the foil from the cut off end and withdraw the pipette. Hold the pipette upright. Tap lightly to ensure the entire liquid contents are within the main body of the pipette. Bend the upper border strip backwards. Then the pipette can be set aside, if necessary. To open the pipette snap off the top of the pipette along the scored line.
Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette several times to empty its content completely and directly onto the skin in one spot.
Application of the solution near the base of the head minimises the possibility that the animal will lick the solution off. Care should be taken after the application that animals do not mutually lick off the solution.
Care should be taken to avoid excessive wetting of the hair with the product since this will cause a sticky appearance of hairs at the treatment spot. However, should this occur, it will disappear within 24 hours post application.
For the treatment and control of flea allergy it is recommended that allergic patients and all other dogs and cats in the household should be treated at monthly intervals.
Contraindications, warnings, etc
Do not use on sick (systemic disease, fever etc.) or convalescent animals.
Do not use on rabbits, as adverse drug reactions and even death could occur.
This veterinary medicinal product has been developed specifically for dogs. Do not use on cats as this could lead to overdosing.
Do not use on animals with hypersensitivity to the active substance or any other excipients.
Adverse reactions: If licking occurs, a brief period of hyper salivation may be observed due mainly to the nature of the carrier substance. Among the extremely rare suspected adverse reactions, transient cutaneous reactions at the application site (scaling, local alopecia, pruritus, erythema) and general pruritus or alopecia have been reported after use. Exceptionally, hyper salivation, reversible neurological signs (hyperaesthesia, depression, nervous signs), vomiting or respiratory signs have been observed after use.
If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this data sheet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.
Special warnings: For animal treatment only.
The veterinary medicinal product does not prevent an infestation of the animal by ticks. Ticks will usually die within 48 hours of infestation, however attached ticks (both live and killed) may be seen at this time. Some of these will have had a blood meal. Death normally occurs before the ticks are fully engorged so that the risk of transmission of infectious diseases by ticks is minimised, but cannot be completely ruled out. As soon as the ticks are dead they generally fall off the animal; remaining ticks can be removed with a gentle pull.
For the optimal control of flea problems in households with several animals all dogs and cats should be treated with an authorised insecticide.
Fleas from pets often infest animal's baskets, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated, in case of massive infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly.
Shampooing with a medicated shampoo, followed by thorough drying, 1 to 2 hours before treatment application and bathing once weekly over a period of 6 weeks, has been shown not to affect the efficacy of this veterinary medicinal product against fleas. Bathing and intensive wetting of the coat should be avoided for the first 2 days following administration of the veterinary medicinal product.
Keep out of the reach and sight of children.
Special precautions for use in animals: Animals should be weighed accurately prior to treatment.
This veterinary medicinal product should not be used in dogs weighing less than 10 kg.
It is important to make sure that the product is applied to an area where the animal cannot lick it off. Do not allow recently treated animals to lick each other.
Avoid contact with the animal's eyes. Should the veterinary medicinal product come into contact with the eyes, rinse thoroughly at once with water.
Do not apply the veterinary medicinal product to wounds or skin lesions.
There may be an attachment of some ticks. For this reason transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable.
Specific studies investigating the safety of the product following repeated administration or at over dosage have not been conducted due to the known safety profile of the active substance and excipients.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product: This veterinary medicinal product can cause mucous and eye irritation. Therefore avoid contact of the product with mouth and eyes. Should the veterinary medicinal product come into contact with the eyes, rinse thoroughly at once with water. If the eye irritation persists, seek medical help at once and show the package insert or carton. Avoid contact with the skin. Should the product come into contact with the skin, wash with soap and water. Wash hands after use.
Do not eat, drink or smoke during application.
Animals or operators with known hypersensitivity to fipronil or one of its components should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product. Treated animals should not be handled until the application site is dry, and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the application site is dry. It is therefore recommended that animals are not treated during the day but during the early evening. Moreover, recently treated animals should not be allowed to sleep with owners, especially children.
Other precautions: Dogs should not be allowed to swim in watercourses for 2 days after application.
Use during pregnancy and lactation: Laboratory studies using fipronil have not shown any teratogenic or embryotoxic effect. No studies have been carried out on pregnant or lactating dogs using this veterinary medicinal product. Therefore, its use during pregnancy and lactation should only be after a relevant benefit-risk analysis made by the treating veterinarian.
Overdose: The toxicity of the veterinary medicinal product administered to the skin is very low. The risk of experiencing adverse effects (see section adverse reactions) may however increase when overdosing, so animals should always be treated with the correct pipette size according to body weight.
This veterinary medicinal product does not require any special storage conditions. Store in the original package.
Do not use after the expiry date which is stated on the blister and carton after EXP.
Disposal: Dispose of any unused product and empty containers in accordance with guidance from your local waste regulation authority. Fipronil may be harmful to aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with the product or empty container.
