I am doctor Dr. Tony Johnson. And Fleur and I are gonna walk you through how to apply Fiproguard Dog & Puppy Topical Flea & Tick Treatment today. As a practicing veterinarian, I know that the active ingredient in Fiproguard is very effective and well tolerated by dogs and cats. But we still have to pay close attention to how we are applying it. That's why we will run through the main points step by step.
First, be sure you are purchasing the right product. You might want to watch the video segment on safety tips to really understand what goes into buying the right product. Be sure to weigh your cat or dog before going to the store. Buy the product for the right weight group. Then make sure you're buying the product for the right species. Never use a dog product on a cat or a cat product on a dog. They contain different amounts of active ingredients and are not meant to be used across species. Be aware that Fiproguard can be used on puppies and kittens over 8 weeks old, just like front-line top spot. Now we are down to applying the product. Walk through with us. Are you ready for it?
OK, first take the tube from the package like this. Make sure your pet is perpendicular to you so it is easy to see exactly what you're doing. Now, holding the tube with the notched end pointing up and away from your face like this, you want to cut the narrow end at the notches. Invert the tube over the cat or dog like this. Use the tip, part their hair and then, squeeze the tube so that the fluid comes out onto their skin.
With dogs under 89 pounds and cats, you need to apply the product in one spot between the shoulder blades. For big dogs between 89 and a 132 pounds, you only need to squeeze the tube and apply in a line from the back of the neck to a point midway between the neck and the tail. Now, if you need to bathe your dog or they love to play at water, just wait 24 hours for the product to dry completely. After that, Fiproguard is waterproof, so water won't be a problem. And that, I say, is a wrap. Good luck with your Fiproguard.
