Method of administration:
Immediately before use, open the envelope and remove the pipette.
Put the gloves. Pipettes must be held by the base or the upper rigid part under the lid in the upright position (upwards) to open.
The screwed cap must be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise, with a full turn.
The lid will remain on the pipette; it is not possible to remove it.

Place the tip of the pipette at the base of the cat's skull.
Gently push the pipette and apply the whole contents directly to the cat's skin.
The product should be applied to cats up to 6.25 kg body weight in one place at the base of the skull and in two places at the base of the skull in cats greater than 6.25 kg body weight.
For concomitant treatment of T. cati and A. tubaeforme gastrointestinal nematodes, a single dose of the product should be used.
The need for and the frequency of resumption of treatment should be in line with the opinion of the prescribing veterinarian and take into account the local epidemiological situation.
If necessary, cats can be re-treated at 12-week intervals.

Special precautions for each target species
Ticks and fleas must begin feeding on the host to be exposed to the flurry; therefore, the risk of transmitting diseases transmitted by the parasite can not be ruled out.
Cats in endemic areas for heartworms (or those that have traveled to endemic areas) may be infected with adult heartworms.
No therapeutic effect against adult Dirofilaria immitis has been demonstrated. It is therefore recommended, in accordance with good veterinary practice, that animals of 6 months of age or older who live in areas where a vector is present should be tested for existing infections with adult heartworms prior to the application of the veterinary medicinal product prevention of heart disease.

For the treatment of infections with T. cati and A. tubaeforme gastrointestinal nematodes, the necessity and frequency of repetition of the treatment and the choice of treatment (monosubstance or combination product) should be evaluated by the attending veterinarian.
The resistance of parasites to any class of anthelmintics may occur after frequent and repeated use of an anthelmintic in that class under specific circumstances. The use of this veterinary medicinal product should be based on the assessment of each individual case and the local epidemiological information on the current susceptibility of the target species to limit the possibility of a future selection of resistance.
