Initiate a monthly treatment program after the infestation is under control. Do not treat more often than once weekly. You might have to re-treat sooner than 4 weeks for severe flea infestations. In typical circumstances, this product provides one month of protection. Ensure that the empty tube is properly disposed of. Application Instructions: 1) Take one of the applicator tubes out of the container. 2) Make sure the dog is standing or is in a comfortable position. 3) Hold the applicator upright and away from your pet's face and eyes, as well as your own. 4) Replace the cap and the other end of the tube. Twist the cap to break the seal and take the cap off of the tube. 5) Part the coat between your dog's shoulder blades to expose the skin. 6) Place the tube's tip directly on the skin. Slowly apply the product. Do not allow the product to enter the dog's eyes or mouth via superficial hair application. Allowing the dog to eat the substance is prohibited, as is ensuring that the product does not escape. 7) Distribute the entire contents equally across the top of the back, starting at the shoulder and terminating at the tail base. Part the skin in each place to increase skin visibility. To avoid run-off, do not apply excessive quantities in any one place.
