Fiproguard is a topical treatment for your dogs and cats that is applied directly on the skin. Before buying, ensure that you choose the correct dosage by knowing how heavy your pet is. Fiproguard is packaged into different weight breaks. As a squeeze-on product, be sure to apply all of the contents on the skin for maximum protection. Read safety instructions before opening and keep away from the face and body. Separate one tube from the others, and cut the notched end with scissors. Begin by parting the hair and carefully applying the liquid on the skin between the shoulder blades. For extra-large dogs, apply the solution from the back of the neck to a point midway between the head and tail of the dog. The liquid is absorbed by the natural skin oil of your pet in order to take effect against the parasites. You may use on puppies and kittens as old as 8 weeks.
Is your dog at risk with a looming tick and flea infestation? These pests can reproduce at alarming rates. You must check by combing your pet’s hair and check for flea dirt (black pepper- like); in dogs, these are mostly evident especially in the tail area. In cats, they are evident in the neck area. Small irritated red spots are also evidence of tick and flea bites. Ticks are easier to see with the naked eye. If your dog is itching, this may also be a sign of tick and flea infection. However, don’t wait until your dog or cat succumbs to infestation. Make sure to use Fiproguard every 4 weeks to guard your dog or cat against these pesky parasites.
