FIPROFORT PLUS SPOT ON FOR DOGS
Fipronil belongs to the family phenylpyrazole. Fipronil interacts with complexes formed between the chloride channels and their ligands, especially the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid), thus blocking the transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes to levels pre and post synaptic. It causes uncontrolled activity on the central nervous system of insects and mites and causes their death. Fipronil kills fleas within 24 hours, ticks (Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes scapularis, Ixodes ricinus, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Haemaphysalis flava and Haemaphysalis campanulata) and lice within 48 hours after application of the product.
The (S)-methoprene is a regulator of insect growth (ROI) of the class of similar juvenile hormone, it inhibits the development of immature stages of insects. Mimicking the action of the juvenile hormone, the compound causes impaired development and death of immature stages of fleas. The ovicidal activity of (S)-methoprene applied to the dog results either from direct penetration into the shell flea eggs newly laid or its absorption through the cuticle of adult fleas. The (S)-methoprene is also found effective in preventing the development of larvae and pupae chip, prevents contamination of the habitat of dogs treated with the immature stages of fleas.

Treatment and prevention of flea infestation (CtenocephaIides spp) and control of brown dog ticks (Rhipicephalus sanguineus), paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) and biting lice (Trichodectes canis) on dogs.

FIPROFORT PLUS also controls brown dog ticks for up to one month and paralysis ticks for up to two weeks after application in dogs. Daily searching of dog is necessary to minimize the risk of tick paralysis. Searching should continue throughout the paralysis tick season.
FIPROFORT PLUS can be used for the treatment and control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis in dogs.
FIPROFORT PLUS is mainly used for flea control as it breaks the life cycle on the dog and in its surrounding by killing all stages of fleas.
For Fleas: Monthly application is recommended for dogs. All dogs in a household should be treated at the same time. It is important to treat all household dogs if any pet is allergic to fleas (flea allergy dermatitis).
Paralysis Ticks: Two-weekly application in dogs is recommended. FIPROFORT PLUS provides control of paralysis ticks for up to 2 weeks, use of this product does not guarantee prevention of tick paralysis because ticks are not killed immediately after attachment. Daily searching of dogs is necessary to minimize the risk of tick paralysis. Searching should continue throughout the paralysis tick season, which extends from spring to autumn, but may be year round in some localized areas.
Brown Dog Tick: Monthly application is recommended in dogs.
Biting Lice: Treat all household dogs at the same time.
