What is Fiprofort Plus used for?
Fiprofort Plus (Fipronil/S-Methoprene) is a topical medication used to treat and control flea, tick, and lice infections affecting dogs. It operates by being absorbed into the bloodstream and killing any parasites that attempt to feed on the dog. This makes it useful for destroying current infestations as well as preventing further infestations with monthly administration. Your veterinarian may also recommend its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Fiprofort Plus?
Fiprofort Plus (Fipronil/S-Methoprene) should be used according to the instructions of the veterinarian and those included with the packaging to get the best results from treatment. The normal dosage is one pipette of the correct dosage for your dog (indicated on the packaging) administered once each month. To apply the medicine remove one pipette from the packaging, hold it upright and open the top, part the hair at the base of the neck between the shoulder blades, and apply the contents of the pipette directly to the skin. There is no need to rub the solution into the skin as it will be absorbed naturally. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water following each application to prevent the medication from contacting your own skin or mucous membranes. Ask the veterinarian any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
