Dosage and administration
The minimum recommended dose rate is 30 mg/kg/month. This is achieved by giving: Cats and kittens up to 4.5 kg—content of 1 ampoule containing 1.9 g of suspension/month Cats over 4.5 kg—content of 1 ampoule containing 3.8 g of suspension/month. Administration To be fully effective the suspension must be administered together with food. Shake the ampoule prior to opening. The suspension should be added into approximately half of the food ration. The rest of the food should be presented when all the dose has been eaten. If several cats are treated ensure that each cat is fed individually. The product can also be administered by squeezing the suspension directly from the ampoule onto the back of the cat`s tongue after feeding. To open the ampoule first hold the base tab (which has writing on it) and flick the pack. Then twist off the top portion and squeeze the ampoule several times to administer the suspension. To prevent flea infestations Program should be administered at monthly intervals for at least six months during the flea season starting two months before fleas become active. If the cat is already infested with fleas no viable flea eggs are produced from 24 hours after the first administration. The speed of elimination of the infestation is dependent upon the number of flea larvae and pupae in the environment when treatment starts and climatic conditions. If cats have a high level of flea infestation at the start of the treatment it may be necessary to administer a flea adulticide during the first one to two months. In cases of severe hypersensitivity further use of an adulticide may be needed. It is essential that all cats and dogs (except unweaned puppies and kittens) living in a household are treated with Program to stop flea reproduction. For dogs use Program tablets.
