How To Safely Protect Your Pets From Fleas

If you have a cat or a dog that has ever been outside, the chances are, at some point it would have picked up fleas. Fleas live on the skin of our pets, beneath the hair, and feed off their blood. They are nearly impossible to remove manually and cause great discomfort in pets. They can even spread onto our soft furnishings and bite us! It is therefore extremely important to protect cats and dogs using a flea treatment.

Fiprotec is a type of spot-on treatment you can use to protect your pet from fleas and other blood-suckers for up to one month. It is crucial to use the flea treatment intended for dogs, on dogs only, because using that medication on cats can cause poisoning, and lead to serious health issues.

Beaphar FIPROtec Spot-On Solution Dogs kills fleas and ticks on small dogs and continues to kill fleas for up to 5 weeks and ticks for up to 4 weeks. It is important to establish a regular flea control routine for dogs and the household. Dogs who spend a lot of time outside are especially at risk from fleas and ticks.

To apply it, first remove the dog’s collar. Then, spread the fur at the back of its neck, in a spot between the shoulder blades, where it can’t be licked. Apply the entire sachet of FIPROtec flea treatment to the skin. Avoid touching the wet spot, and allow the treatment to spread for 24 hours, and try to prevent it from licking itself.

With cats, the procedure is similar, but make sure you are using FIBROtec Spot-On Cats. Spread the fur at the back of your cat’s neck and on the top of its head, and apply the entire sachet of the flea treatment directly to the skin. The treatment will spread, kill fleas and ticks, as well as providing protection for a month. It is suitable for cats aged 7 months plus.

After applying the treatment to an infected pet, make sure you hoover the house thoroughly and wash your clothes and soft furnishings to remove eggs and other fleas. This will reduce the risk of reinfection. Remember to use flea treatment on your pets regularly, before they show symptoms of fleas. This will ensure they are kept as comfortable as possible and prevent fleas from living in your home.
