Affordable, veterinary strength, safe and easy to use! Kill Fleas for up to 5 weeks and Ticks for up to 4 weeks with one easy application of Beaphar Fiprotec Spot On for dogs.
Fiprotec contains Fipronil, the same active ingredient as is found in Frontline, and is suitable for application to dogs and puppies over 8 weeks of age.
Although fleas will be targeted within a couple of hours of application, Fiprotec may take up to 1 week to begin killing ticks, so for continued protection it is best to apply Fiprotec every 4 weeks. Each pipette of Fiprotec will provide protection against both fleas and ticks for 4 weeks.
You may see more fleas on your dog in the short time after treatment as Fipronil kills fleas by affecting their nervous system and inducing hyperactivity. During this hyperactive stage, fleas become more active meaning your appear to see 'more fleas' on your pet. In fact, these are the existing fleas on your cat or dog trying to 'get away' from the flea treatment. They often crawl to the top of your pet's coat, becoming more visible before they die.
Beaphar Fiprotec Spot-On contains Fipronil. This is an insecticide, and kills adult fleas and ticks. Fipronil works by killing parasites through contact, not via the bloodstream. This means a harmful flea or tick does not have to bite your pet in order to be killed, thereby reducing the chance of disease transmission from fleas or ticks.
Fleas are a common carrier of Tapeworm eggs, so if your pet has fleas it is important to treat them with a wormer such as Beaphar WormClear to target intestinal worms.
If your pet currently has fleas, it is important to treat their environment and other pets in the house for external parasites to prevent reinfestation. We don't recommend putting pets infested with fleas outside if they normally live indoors, as the fleas will begin to bite the human residents of the home. Instead, apply a fast-acting spot on such as Fiprotec and the fleas will begin to die as they bite the treated pet. In conjunction with treating the pets, use Foggers and Sprays to clear infestations quickly.
