For animal treatment only. In the absence of available data the product should not be used on kittens less than 8 weeks old and/or weighing less than 1 kg. No undesirable effects were observed in target animal safety studies in cats and kittens aged 8 weeks and older and weighing about 1 kg treated once a month at five times the recommended dose for six consecutive months. The risk of experiencing adverse effects may however increase with overdosing. The product can be used during pregnancy and lactation. Do not use on sick (systemic diseases fever�) or convalescent animals.

Do not use in rabbits as adverse reactions and even death could occur. Do not overdose. It is important to make sure that the product is applied to an area where the animal cannot lick it off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment. If licking occurs a brief period of hypersalivation may be observed due mainly to the nature of the carrier. No data on the effect of bathing/shampooing on the efficacy of the product in cats are available. However based on information available for dogs shampooed from 2 days after application of the product it is not recommended to bath animals within 2 days after application of the product. There may be an attachment of single ticks. For this reason transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable. Fleas from pets often infest the animal`s basket bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated in case of massive infestation and at the beginning of the control measures with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly. There are no known interactions with other medications. Itching may occur following treatment. Overdose application of the product will cause a sticky appearance of hairs at the treatment spot. However should this occur it will disappear within 24 hours post application. Among the very rare suspected adverse reactions transient skin reactions at the application site (scaling local hair loss itching redness) and general itching or hair loss have been reported after use. Excessive salivation reversible nervous signs (increased sensitivity to stimulation depression other nervous signs) or vomiting have also been observed after use. Avoid contact with the animal's eyes. Animals with a known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with FRONTLINE Combo Spot-On Cat. Operator safety: Operators with a known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with FRONTLINE Combo Spot-On Cat. This product can cause mucous membrane skin and eye irritation. Therefore contact of the product with mouth skin and eyes should be avoided. After accidental ocular exposure the eye should be rinsed carefully with pure water. Avoid contents coming into contact with the fingers. If this occurs wash hands with soap and water. Treated animals should not be handled until the application site is dry and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the application site is dry. It is therefore recommended that animals are not treated during the day but should be treated during the early evening and that recently treated animals are not allowed to sleep with owners especially children. Wash hands after use. Do not smoke drink or eat during application.   Pharmaceutical precautions Keep out of the reach and sight of children. Do not store above 30C. Store in the original package.
