Pipette application method:
Remove the blister card from the packaging and separate a blister. Use scissors to cut the blister along the dotted line (or fold and tear the marked corner), remove the pipette and hold it upright. Cut the tip of the pipette with scissors. Separate the hairs until the skin is visible. Bring the tip of the pipette close to the skin. Squeeze the pipette, applying about half the contents in the middle of the neck between the base of the skull and the shoulder blades. Repeat the application at the base of the neck between the shoulder blades to empty the pipette. For best results, make sure the veterinary medicine is applied directly to the skin, not the hair.
It is important to make regular applications and throughout the year, even before observing the presence of fleas or ticks, in order to avoid the installation of the parasite's life cycle in the environment. It is recommended to apply the product to all animals in the house, even those that do not go abroad. Choose the product that best adapts to the weight of each animal. Do not hesitate to weigh your pet regularly in order to avoid dosing errors. In the case of dogs weighing more than 60 kg, a combination of pipettes appropriate to the weight of the animal should be applied.
