Warning:

Do not use on sick (e.g. systemic diseases, fever) or convalescent animals. Do not use in rabbits, as adverse reactions and even death could occur. This product is specifically developed for dogs. Do not use in cats, as this could lead to overdosing. Do not use on animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of excipients.

Ridaflea Spot-On Solution for Dogs is used for the treatment of flea and tick infestations. Insecticidal efficacy against new infestations of adult fleas persists for up to 8 weeks against fleas and acaricidal efficacy persists for 4 weeks against ticks, killing ticks within a week.

Indications:

  • Treatment of flea (Ctenocephalides spp.) infestations with insecticidal efficacy against new infestations of adult fleas persisting for 8 weeks.
  • Treatment of tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Ixodes Ricinus) infestations, with persistent acaricidal efficacy for 4 weeks against ticks (Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes ricinus, Dermacentor reticulatus).

Please note if ticks of some species (Dermacentor reticulatus) are already present when the product is applied, all of the ticks may not be killed within the first 48 hours.

Fleas from pets often infest your pet's basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings. Therefore these areas should be treated, in case of massive infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly.

For optimum control of flea problems in a multi-pet household, all dogs and cats in the household should be treated with a suitable insecticide.

. If the animal has been treated prior to exposure to the ticks, the ticks will be killed in the first 24-48 hours after attachment. This will usually be prior to engorgement, minimising but not excluding the risk of transmission of diseases. Once dead, ticks will often drop off your pet, but any remaining ticks may be removed with a gentle pull.

You should avoid taking your pet for frequent swims or shampooing your pet because the maintenance of effectiveness of the Ridaflea may be effected. Dogs should not be allowed to swim in water courses for 2 days after application.

Dosage guidelines:

Your pet should be weighed accurately prior to treatment. Avoid contact with their eyes. In the case of accidental eye contact, immediately and thoroughly flush the eyes with water. Do not apply the product on wounds or damaged skin. It is important to make sure that the product is applied to an area where it cannot lick it off, and to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment.

Route of administration and dosage:

External use only. Administer by topical application to the skin according to the bodyweight as follows:

  • 1 pipette of 0.67 ml per dog weighing over 2 kg and up to 10 kg bodyweight.
  • Medium dogs: 1 pipette of 1.34 ml per dog weighing over 10 kg and up to 20 kg bodyweight.
  • Large dogs: 1 pipette of 2.68 ml per dog weighing over 20 kg and up to 40 kg bodyweight. For dogs over 60 kg, use two pipettes of 2.68 ml.
  • Extra large dogs: 1 pipette of 4.02 ml per dog weighing over 40 kg and up to 60 kg bodyweight. For dogs over 60 kg, use two pipettes of 2.68 ml.

Method of administration:

Remove the pipette from the blister packaging. Hold the pipette upright. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure the contents are within the main body of the pipette. Twist and pull the snap-off top of the pipette to enable the contents to be expelled.

Part the pet’s coat until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette directly against the bared skin and squeeze gently to empty its contents at two points along the dog’s back, preferably at the base of the head and between the shoulder blades, emptying approximately half the volume at each site. Squeeze the pipette several times to ensure dosing is complete.

Application of the solution as directed minimises the possibility that the animal will lick the solution off.

Care should be taken to avoid excessive wetting of the hair with the product since this will cause a sticky appearance of hairs at the treatment spot. However, should this occur, it will usually disappear within 24 - 48 hours post application. Crystals may be seen on the hair and slight scaling may occur within 24 - 48 hours after application.

Treatment schedule:

For optimal control of flea and/or tick infestation the treatment schedule can be based on the local epidemiological situation.

The minimum interval between two treatments is 4 weeks.
