Tip on Safety Tips for Pour-on Flea Control Products for Dogs

Fleas are a nuisance that will be coming out in full force this spring. There are numerous treatments for fleas including pour-on, also called spot-on, medications.

Safety Tips for "Pour On" Flea Medications:

  • Use products ONLY as directed.
  • Never apply dog flea medication to a cat!
  • Apply medication to an area where your pet can't reach to lick.
  • Use the product recommended for the weight of your pet.
  • Do not combine flea products unless instructed by your veterinarian. Incorrect combinations can cause toxicity!
  • If you use over-the-counter medications, use only as directed. Take very special care to monitor cats and small dogs for 24 hours after administration if using a product containing permethrin or pyrethrin.
