All responsible pet owners know it’s an important part of your pet’s wellbeing to treat for fleas and ticks. Regular treatment will help protect your pet from these nasty parasites, which can cause irritation, itchiness, significant discomfort, and even cause your pet to contract parasitic diseases. These parasites feed on blood from your pet and can cause health problems such as Tapeworm Infestation and Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) from flea bites, and Babesiosis, Lyme’s Disease, and Louping ill from Ticks.
Flevox Spot-On solution acts quickly to kill fleas and ticks living in the fur of cats and dogs. Although priced considerably cheaper, the active ingredient ‘ Fipronil’, is identical to the active ingredient used in market leading products. Fipronil works by affecting the nervous system of fleas and ticks, causing paralysis and death within 48 hours. Adult fleas living on your pet are therefore destroyed before they are able to jump into the environment and lay eggs.
It is important to remember, in cases of existing infestations, that eggs and larvae will already be present in your pet’s environment. They may be lurking under your skirting boards, clinging to your pet’s bedding, or hiding on your sofa. It is vital, therefore, to treat these environments in addition to treating your pet so you can tackle multiple stages of the flea lifecycle. You can protect your environment and kill fleas in three simple steps: vacuum regularly; wash bedding and fabrics above 60 degrees; spray household flea spray, such as Indorex, or Skoosh around the home.
This two-pronged attack will prevent fleas from reproducing and destroy any existing fleas on your pet and the environment. A household spray can be effective for up to twelve months, but you should treat your pet with Flevox Spot-On solution monthly. This is because Fipronil’s strength remains for up to four weeks and must be reapplied to prevent infestations from developing and thriving fleas. Appling Flevox will break the life cycle of the flea and tick colonies, but must be used regularly to treat and prevent these parasites from causing irritation, itchiness, significant discomfort, and disease.
Flevox can be supplied uniquely in single pipette pack so you can choose to buy as many or as few as you require. We offer a considerable multibuy savings for packs containing up to 36 pipettes, meaning Flevox is an economical choice for breeders or multi-pet homes.
Each pipette is sized depending on the weight of your pet, increasing in increments of 10kgs. This enables you to tailor your flea and tick prevention strategy as required. The solution is simple to administer by squeezing the contents of a pipette onto the skin at the base of your pet’s neck. Each pipette contains enough Fipronil to protect your pet against fleas and ticks for up to 4 weeks.
And did you know that for every pipette of Flevox sold, 5 pence will be donated to Dogs for the Disabled.
