Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette several times to empty its contents completely and directly onto the skin in one spot.  

Contra-indications warnings etc
For animal treatment only. In the absence of available data the product should not be used on puppies less than 8 weeks old and/or weighing less than 2 kg. No adverse effects were observed in target animal safety studies in 8 week-old puppies growing dogs and dogs weighing about 2 kg treated once at five times the recommended dose. The risk of experiencing adverse effects may however increase when overdosing so animals should always be treated with the correct pipette size according to bodyweight. 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. This product is specifically developed for dogs. Do not use in cats as this could lead to overdosing. 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. Bathing/immersion in water within 2 days after application of the product and more frequent bathing than once a week should be avoided as no study has been performed to investigate how this affects the efficacy of the product. Emollient shampoos can be used prior to treatment but reduce the duration of protection against fleas to approximately 5 weeks when used weekly after application of the product. Weekly bathing with a 2% chlorhexidine medicated shampoo did not affect efficacy against fleas during a 6 week long study. Dogs should not be allowed to swim in watercourses for 2 days after application. 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. Among the very rare suspected adverse reactions transient skin reactions at the application site (skin discolouration local hair loss itching redness) and general itching or hair loss have been reported after use. Excessive salivation reversible neurological signs (increased sensitivity to stimulation depression other nervous signs) vomiting or respiratory signs 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 Dog.7

Operator safety: Operators with a known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with FRONTLINE Combo Spot-On Dog. 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
