Fipronil is a broad spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insects’ central nervous system and causes them to die. It is a slow acting poison and allows the poisoned insect time to return to the colony to spread to more fleas.
Fleatix® only needs to be applied to 2 spots on your dog after which it spreads around the body through a process called ‘translocation’ and it stored in the natural oils just beneath your pet’s skin.
Fleatix® is strong against fleas and ticks but gentle on your pet. In fact, it can even be used on puppies over 8 weeks. Fleas can also act as a host for worms such as tapeworms or roundworms and can help to infect your dog on the inside too. Fleas infested with worm eggs can bite your dog which makes your dog bite the flea – which it then swallows -. and your dog gets worms as a result!
And if that isn’t bad enough you and your family can get fleas and worms too. Protect your family and treat you dogs regularly with Fleatix®.
