Spot-on use. Remove the Stronghold pipette from its protective package. Holding the pipette upright, firmly depress the cap to puncture the applicator seal, then remove the cap. Part the hair at the base of the animal's neck in front of the shoulder blades to expose a small area of skin. Apply the tip of the Stronghold pipette directly to the skin without massaging. Squeeze the pipette firmly to empty the contents in one spot. Avoid contact between Stronghold and fingers.
Do not use in animals under 6 weeks of age. Do not use in cats that are suffering from concomitant disease, or are debilitated and underweight.
This product is to be applied to the skin surface only. Do not administer orally or parenterally.
Do not apply when the animal's hair coat is wet. However, shampooing or soaking the animal 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the efficacy of Stronghold.
For ear mite treatment, do not aplly directly to the ear canal.
It is important to apply the dose as indicated to minimise the quantity that the animal can lick off. If significant licking does occur, a brief period of hypersalivation may rarely be observed in cats.
Keep treated animals away from fires and other sources of ignition for at least 30 minutes or until the hair coat is dry.
Do not allow treated animals to bathe in water courses until at least 2 hours after treatment.
Avoid direct contact with treated animals until the application area is dry. On the day of treatment, children must not handle treated animals and the animals should not be permitted to sleep with their owners, especially children. Used tubes should be disposed of immediately and not left within the sight or reach of children.
