Lightly towel fur to remove excess spray before allowing cat to groom. Dogs: Small (1.5 – 5 kg): 3 pumps on each side. Medium (5.1 – 15 kg): 6 pumps on each side. Large (15.1 – 30 kg): 10 pumps on each side Work from the rear of the animal towards the head. Treatment can be repeated 4 or 5 days later, if necessary. 

Do not allow dogs to swim for 24 hours after applying the product.

Treating a pet for fleas will not solve a flea problem unless you also treat their environment with a suitable household flea treatment. Most of a flea’s life-cycle is spent not on the animal but in the surrounding environment. Be sure to treat bedding, soft furnishings and floor coverings in every room that your pet has access to.
Storage: Keep out of the reach and sight of children. Do not store above 25 °C. Protect from direct sunlight. Dispose of any unused product and empty containers in household rubbish. 

Warnings: Keep treated animals away from fires and other sources of heat for at least 30 minutes following spraying and until fur is totally dry. Do not use on puppies and kittens under 6 months of age, or on nursing mothers. Do not use this spray if you are using other insecticides on your pet (shampoo, spray, spot on, powder, etc.). Do not exceed the recommended spray rate. Avoid eyes, mouth and nostrils. Occasionally, excessive salivation may occur in cats following use of the product as recommended, especially if they are known to be fastidious groomers. This effect is usually transient but, if noted, consult your Veterinary Surgeon for advice. If signs of disease persist or appear following treatment, consult your Veterinary Surgeon. Do not smoke when using this product. Use in a well-ventilated area. Do not breathe spray mist. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. In case of accidental eye contact, rinse with clean, fresh water. If eye irritation persists seek medical advice. Persons who are hypersensitive (allergic) to pyrethrum extract should handle the product with care. Treated animals should not be allowed to sleep or play with people, particularly children, until the animal is dry. Wash hands and exposed skin after use. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedstuffs. Avoid spraying onto polished furniture and delicate fabrics. 

FLAMMABLE – Do not spray on or near a naked flame, or on incandescent materials, hot surfaces, or electrical equipment. 

Environmental Warnings: Dangerous to fish and aquatic life. Do not contaminate aquaria, fish bowls, ponds or other waterways with the product or used containers.

  • My cat is startled by aerosols - is the flea spray quiet?
  • Both our flea spray products for cats are not aerosols, but pump action sprays. Not only does this allow an accurate control of dosage for the cat, but a very low noise, so it minimises the chance of distress for the pet.
  • How often should an on-animal flea spray be used?
  • Beaphar Flea Sprays contain natural Pyrethrum and work on the surface of the animal. The sprays are effective for around 4 days and are used mainly to kill an infestation quickly. After this period of time, a longer-acting flea treatment should be used. Beaphar has a wide variety of effective flea collars, as well as spot on treatments, to complement our flea sprays. Fleas spend most of their life-cycle not on the pet, but in the home environment. If this source of reinfestation is not effectively treated, newly-hatched fleas will still bite family members and will reinfect the pet. In this case, a good household flea spray must be used, such as Beaphar Defest or Beaphar Home Flea Spray, to treat carpets and soft furnishings in all rooms that the pet has access to.
  • Is it ok for cats to groom each other after using a flea spray?
  • No; cats should not groom themselves or another treated cat or dog until the fur is dry. Cats can be kept in a warm place to help the drying process, however the owner should not use a hair dryer or put pets near an open fire as the product is flammable. Cats must either be watched or separated until their fur is dry.
  • How long will it take pets to dry out after using a flea spray?
  • It is normal for pets to be slightly damp immediately after spraying with the flea treatment, although the formula is designed to dry quickly. Any excess should be removed immediately with a towel, and pets kept warm until they are dry.
  • Will flea sprays stop working if dogs go swimming?
  • Beaphar flea sprays contain natural Pyrethrum and work on the surface of the animal. The sprays are designed to work for up to 4 days as an initial treatment to kill fleas. By immersing itself in water, a dog is likely to reduce the effectiveness of the spray. It is advised that the dog should not bathe in ponds, streams, etc. immediately after treatment, as this may also harm the fish/animals in the water.
  • Is it ok to use a flea spray which is past its use-by date?
  • A medicine should not be used after its use by, best before or expiry date. The flea sprays are guaranteed to be safe and effective if used in accordance with their label instructions; this includes the use by date. After this time, the safety and effectiveness of the treatment may be reduced. We would always recommend disposing of the old spray responsibly and purchasing a new one to guarantee efficacy and for the welfare of the pet.
