To Kill Brown Dog Ticks and Fleas: Spray Advantage® flea spray around beds, furniture and pet’s habitat. Also spray pet sleeping quarters, bedding, carpeting, floor and floor covering where pets are kept. Use only a recommended pet spray on pets.

To Kill Bed Bugs and Bed Bug Eggs: Spray bugs directly when possible. Apply on and around bed frames, headboards, floors, carpeting, baseboards, furniture, moldings, ceilings and walls.

To Kill Dust Mites: Thoroughly vacuum entire room, concentrating on areas where mites congregate, such as mattresses, box springs, headboards, walls, floors, carpeting and baseboards. Then spray surfaces until damp.

To Kill Crawling Insects: Spray as a spot or crack-and-crevice application where insects are harboring, moving or breeding. Treat feeding or hiding areas such as baseboards, carpet, floor, rugs, under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks and stoves. Also treat any interior entry points such as doors, and around windows and water pipes.

To Kill Clothes Moths and Carpet Beetles: Apply as a spot treatment to cracks and crevices on and around baseboards, floorboards, furniture and around the edges of carpet. Apply as a spot spray to carpet, rugs, closets, baseboards, furniture, and on floor and floor coverings.

How do I use the Advantage® Household Fogger for fleas in my home?

One canister of fogger will treat a room up to 16 ft x 16 ft with an 8 ft ceiling or 2,000 cubic ft of unobstructed space. However, do not use more than one fogger per room and do not use in small, enclosed spaces such as closets, cabinets, or under counters or tables. Avoid using Advantage® Household Fogger in a room 5 x 5 ft or smaller; instead, allow fog to enter from other rooms. See below for flea fogger directions.
Before You Fog:

  1. Remove or cover exposed food and drinking water before any application.
  2. Remove or cover dishes, utensils, food processing equipment and food preparation surfaces, or wash them before use.
  3. Be sure to remove pets and birds, as well as cover and turn off fish aquariums before activating canister.

  7. Open cabinets, cupboards, drawers, closets and doors in areas to be treated.
  8. Place a chair, small table or stand in the center of the room to be treated, and then cover with newspaper.
  9. Fill out and place a hang-tag on the door to the treated area to alert anyone with access to the treated area not to enter for two (2) hours.

To Start Fogging:

  1. Shake well before use and keep container upright.
  2. The canister sprays straight up, so it’s important to point the canister away from your face and eyes when releasing.
  3. To lock valve in position for automatic discharge, press the valve button down firmly until it snaps into place.
  4. Once the canister has been activated, place the canister on the chair, small table or stand (that is covered by newspaper) in the center of the room to be treated.

  6. Do not remain in the treated area. Vacate the treated house, individual apartment unit or other structure immediately.

After Fogging: 

  1. Wait two (2) hours after application, and then open windows, vents and doors for two (2) hours. If an odor is still detectable, additional ventilation is required.
  2. For more effective control of storage pests and cockroaches, open all cupboard doors and drawers for better penetration of fog.
  3. Remove all infested foodstuffs and dispose of it in outdoor trash.
  4. For flea and tick control, thoroughly vacuum all carpeting, upholstered furniture, along baseboards, under furniture and in closets. Put vacuum bag into a sack and dispose of it in outdoor trash.

How often should I give my dog Drontal® Plus?

Dogs currently infected with intestinal parasites often need a few rounds of deworming (this is especially important in puppies) to adequately clear out infections. This is because an infected dog will often harbor different life stages of worms, some of which will not be killed by the first dose. Your veterinarian can help provide you with an appropriate deworming strategy that best fits your dog’s needs.

Isolated incidents of either vomiting, bloody stool or watery/profuse stool have been reported following treatment. If these signs are observed and they persist, consult your veterinarian.

Endurosyn® is a 3-day probiotic oral gel for short-term use in support of digestive health during times of stress or transition. Pets that suffer from GI upset when boarding, traveling, training, or going to the vet are good candidates for Endurosyn®.

Lactoquil® is a daily probiotic soft chew specially formulated to assist in ongoing digestive health maintenance for dogs.  If your dog has a history of a sensitive stomach or seems to suffer from on and off again GI upset, talk to your veterinarian to determine if your dog would be a good candidate for Lactoquil®.

Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. For animal use only.

What is the difference between Endurosyn® Digestive Health Probiotic Oral Gel For Dogs and Lactoquil®?

Endurosyn® is designed for use during short stints of stress or transition (traveling, boarding, etc.) that can cause GI upset. It contains probiotics and additional ingredients such as electrolytes, vitamins and concentrated energy sources to help support the protective layers of the bowel, as well as maintain proper intestinal pH. 

Lactoquil® is a daily probiotic soft chew to be used for ongoing digestive health support for dogs only. It contains high levels of live, viable naturally occurring beneficial bacteria (like some yogurts) to assist in healthy digestion and absorption.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. For animal use only.

What could cause my pet’s gastrointestinal (GI) system to be disrupted?

A normal GI system has a healthy balance of microorganisms, but your pet’s system can be disrupted by:

  • Dietary changes or indiscretions
  • Stress from boarding, travel or hospitalization
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Deworming
  • Age
  • Food sensitivities

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. For animal use only.

Endurosyn® Digestive Health Probiotic Oral Gel For Dogs contains Caprylic Acid. What is this ingredient?

Caprylic Acid is a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) found in coconut oil. MCT’s provide nourishment and energy to cells lining the GI tract. Endurosyn® also provides electrolytes and amino acids to support and nourish cells along the intestine.

Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. For animal use only.

Can I use Endurosyn® Digestive Health Probiotic Oral Gel For Dogs on my cat?

No. Endurosyn® Digestive Health Probiotic Oral Gel For Dogs is labeled for use in dogs only. Endurosyn® Digestive Health Probiotic Oral Gel For Cats should be used for cats.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. For animal use only.

Why does Endurosyn® Digestive Health Probiotic Oral Gel For Dogs contain several strains of bacteria?

The GI tract has a complex, intermixing array of beneficial bacteria, called the microflora. It is maintained in a careful balance that coats and protects the layers of the intestines. Under certain conditions, gaps or breaks in the microflora appear, creating opportunities for microbial imbalances to occur. This often leads to GI upset and distress. A probiotic with multi-strains of bacteria is able to utilize the strengths of each specific strain to promote proper gut flora balance.

What makes Free Form™ different from other available fatty acids?

The Omega-3 fatty acids in Free Form™ Omega-3 Fish Oil for Dogs & Cats are concentrated. That means the formulation contains higher, more concentrated levels of EPA and DHA than found in some other forms of Omega-3 fatty acid supplements.8

The oil in Free Form™ is harvested primarily from anchovies, a renewable fish source found in deep, cold ocean waters.

Free Form™ Omega-3 Fish Oil for Dogs & Cats is tested for heavy metals, bacteria and fungi and the products contain no added sugar or starch.

Warnings: For animal use only. Keep out of reach of children and other animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a veterinarian immediately.

What is a free fatty acid?

Many Omega-3 fatty acid supplements come in a triglyceride form, which means the fatty acid molecules are bound to a glycerol backbone and must be removed by the body before absorption in the GI tract. But not Free Form™. The oil found in Free Form™ Omega-3 Fish Oil for Dogs undergoes a molecular distillation process that removes the glycerol backbone. This results in the fatty acids being freed without the need to be further broken down by the body, saving one step in the absorption process.

Warnings: For animal use only. Keep out of reach of children and other animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a veterinarian immediately.

What are the sources of protein in the product that may be potential allergens?

The oil in Free Form™ is harvested primarily from anchovies and or sardines, a renewable fish source found in deep, cold ocean waters.

The capsule is formed from a pork based gelatin.

Warnings: For animal use only. Keep out of reach of children and other animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a veterinarian immediately.

What is a hydrating shampoo?

A hydrating shampoo contains ingredients designed to keep water in the skin, helping to maintain its soft, smooth texture. There are a variety of ingredients that support skin hydration including fatty acids, colloidal oatmeal, and oils. These shampoos typically lather well and often are formulated with a pleasant smell. Shampoos used for grooming, routine bathing, or dry, flaky skin contain hydrating ingredients.

Are there any concerns that I should be aware of when shampooing my pet?

It is important to use lukewarm water when bathing pets. Water that is too hot can burn or irritate skin causing pain; water that is too cold can lower body temperature, causing shivering and potentially hypothermia. Additionally, shampoo should not come in contact with the eyes and ears. If shampooing by the head, it is best to cover the dog’s eyes and ears with a hand while rinsing toward the tail. Blow dryers are not ideal as they can dry out the skin and cause irritation.

What is a soap-free shampoo?

Soap-free shampoo is a term used to describe shampoos that use soaps derived from synthetic ingredients as opposed to soaps derived from animal fat. Products containing soaps from animal fat are typically too powerful for pets, as they tend to wash off valuable skin oils and the uppermost layer of skin cells. This is called stripping, which can leave a pet’s coat dry and irritated.

Can I use my conditioner on my pet?

This is not recommended for a variety of reasons. When human products are used on a dog, they can dry out the skin and can cause irritation.

How do I know if my pet has dry skin?

Dry skin is common among our pets and can happen from a number of reasons including the time of year, allergies, or other underlying metabolic conditions. Dry skin will often have a rough texture and feel brittle; an owner may notice increased dander or skin cells flaking off. Additionally, the coat may appear dull and have areas of patchy hair loss. Dry skin can also cause itchiness.  Shampoo therapy can benefit dry, flaky skin by providing nutrients, lipids, and moisture that will help keep the skin soft and supple.

Is there anything I can apply to my dog’s coat after a shampoo treatment?

While not as well-known, leave-on rinse products are a great way to promote skin health and coat quality, especially on dogs or cats with dry or sensitive skin. They are best utilized after a bath, (either routine or medicated shampoo), when the shampoo has been thoroughly rinsed off and the coat is still wet. Once applied, rinses are worked into the skin and coat and not washed off. They make the skin and coat more manageable, prevent tangles, snarls, and matting, as well as promote coat luster and sheen.

I have a hard time bathing my dog/cat. Are there any products that I can use to help my itchy pet besides an anti-itch shampoo?

Topical sprays can be an effective option for pets suffering from dry, itchy skin since they offer more application flexibility than shampoos. They can be used on pets that are difficult to bathe and applied over the whole body or in a targeted approach on localized spots, such as tops of paws or the base of the tail. These sprays typically offer ingredients that help moisturize the skin and relieve itching while prolonging contact time.

Can pets benefit from conditioners like humans use?

Yes, just like humans, pets can benefit from conditioners too, but it should be a conditioner designed for a pet’s coat. HyLyt® Crème Rinse is a conditioner that is applied to your pet after a bath. For best results, it’s important to completely rinse off the shampoo, apply HyLyt® Crème Rinse when the pet is still wet, and thoroughly work into the hair coat. It contains conditioning agents and moisturizers that help leave the hair coat lustrous, soft and fresh.

How long after using another topical product do I need to wait before applying K9 Advantix® II?

Please consult your dog’s veterinarian for their recommendation.

 

How long does K9 Advantix® II last?

A single application of K9 Advantix® II keeps working for a month.

 

Can I bathe my dog after applying K9 Advantix® II?

Yes! However, we suggest bathing your dog before applying K9 Advantix® II. Your dog needs to be dry at the time of application.

If you choose to bathe your dog in between treatments, we recommend use of a general grooming shampoo for pets.

 

Can I apply K9 Advantix® II more than once a month?

A single application of K9 Advantix® II remains effective for four weeks. However, if the dog has a severe infestation, retreatment within a month may be necessary. Do not retreat more than once every seven days. After flea control is attained, return to a monthly treatment schedule.

 

Why do I still see fleas after using K9 Advantix® II?

Although K9 Advantix® II kills fleas on your dog, there may still be fleas in your dog’s environment that have since jumped on after treatment. Luckily, with K9 Advantix® II, new fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further infestation for at least 4 weeks. As fleas die they are no longer able to stay hidden against your dog’s skin, and therefore you may also be seeing dying fleas coming to the surface of your dog’s fur coat.

 

How long does it take for K9 Advantix® II to work on fleas?

K9 Advantix® II kills fleas within 12 hours. New fleas that jump on the dog from the surroundings, such as grass, carpet and pet bedding, are killed within 2 hours with protection against further infestation for at least 4 weeks.

 

Can my dog go swimming after using K9 Advantix® II?

Yes! Your dog is free to take a dip after K9 Advantix® II has been on for 24 hours. More frequent swimming may keep the product from working for the full 30 days.

 

How does K9 Advantix® II work?

Not all products work the same way: K9 Advantix® II is applied to the pet's skin, spreading the active ingredients over your dog's body to kill fleas, ticks and mosquitoes through contact. No biting required!

 

How do I apply K9 Advantix® II?

Use only on dogs. DO NOT USE ON CATS or other animals. Do not apply to dogs weighing less than 4 lbs.

Remove applicator tube from the package. Use scissors and peel down foil.

Hold applicator tube in an upright position. Pull cap off tube.

Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.

Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.

The dog should be standing for easy application. Evenly apply the entire contents of the tube along the top of the dog's back, from the shoulder down to the base of the tail. The number of spots depends on the size and weight of your dog (please refer to the product label). At each spot, part the hair until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and gently squeeze to expel a portion of the solution on the skin. Do not apply an excessive amount of solution at any one spot that could cause some of the solution to run off the side of the dog. Do not get this product in your dog’s eyes, or allow your dog to ingest this product.

When should I contact my veterinarian?

You should contact your veterinarian if your pet:

  • Experiences pain in the ears or becomes upset when the ears are handled
  • Has a strong odor emanating from the ears
  • Shakes or scratches at the ears with greater intensity or frequency
  • Develops a swelling on any part of the ear
Why should you clean your dog's or cat's ears?

Your veterinarian may suggest at-home dog or cat ear cleaning to:

  • Help keep the skin lining your pet’s ear canal clean and healthy
  • Get rid of dirt, wax, and debris in your pet’s ears
  • Help prevent the buildup of bacteria or yeast
  • Clean your pet’s ear canal to allow prescribed medications to easily reach already-infected areas
My dog swims a lot. Is there anything I need to be concerned about?

When dogs swim or are present in very humid environments, water can become trapped in their ears. This is most common in dogs with bigger, floppier ears. The increased moisture can alter the normal environment of the ear canal, creating favorable conditions for bacteria and yeast growth. Ear cleaners with drying agents are effective at removing moisture to help keep the ear canal healthy.

Worms can sound gross and embarrassing, but most dogs will get at least one type of intestinal worm at some point in their lives. The most common worms found in dogs are hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms and whipworms. Deworming medications contain ingredients that break down and debilitate worms so they can be expelled from your dog’s body.

What is a superficial corneal ulcer? What are the clinical signs?

A superficial corneal ulcer or corneal abrasion occurs when the outside layer of the eye (the clear cornea) encounters some sort of trauma, usually via a scratch. This occurs commonly in dogs and cats as they tend to poke their head in areas they are not supposed to. Pets that have a superficial corneal ulcer will typically be squinting or holding the eye shut. The eye may also appear red and have discharge. Ulcers are very painful.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How is a superficial corneal ulcer diagnosed?

A superficial corneal ulcer is something that can only be diagnosed at the veterinarian’s office. If you think your pet is suffering from a superficial corneal ulcer, an urgent trip to the veterinarian is warranted as superficial corneal ulcers are painful and can permanently harm the eye if not addressed.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How are superficial corneal ulcers treated?

The mainstay of treating a superficial corneal ulcer is with topical antibiotic therapy in the form of eye drops and pain control. Additionally, there are also other products that can be used as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of superficial corneal ulcers that help the healing process and support the eye. Some of these options include utilizing the benefits of hyaluronic acid (HA).

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

What is hyaluronic acid (HA)?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced by the body that has many roles and functions. It can help support the natural wound healing process, provide lubrication for joints, and help with tissue hydration by holding water. It has been incorporated into many medical products and technologies for a variety of purposes, including cosmetics as well as skin, joint, and eye health.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

What is Remend® Corneal Repair Gel?

Remend® Corneal Repair Gel is a topical eye drop that is used to assist in the treatment of superficial corneal ulcers. It utilizes hyaluronic acid that has been medically modified and cross-linked to help support the natural healing process of superficial corneal ulcers in dogs and cats. It is not meant to be used in place of antibiotics or pain control.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How does the advanced cross-linked hyaluronic acid technology in Remend® Corneal Repair Gel work?

Despite being clear, the cornea is not all that different from skin. It is made up of a surface layer of cells and supported by a matrix of specialized connective tissue underneath. These cells and corresponding matrix are neatly stacked so that they are clear. When an eye is scratched, a section of these cells are lost creating a gap or divot in the eye. The repair gel helps fill in this gap by providing a framework or scaffolding matrix for the healthy cells around the scratch to slide over and seal the defect. 

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

Are there any other benefits of cross-linked modified HA?

The cross linked-HA found in Remend® Corneal Repair Gel provides enhanced lubrication and hydration of the corneal surface, which may help reduce the pet’s discomfort.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

Isn't hyaluronic acid just used as a joint lubricant?

While some types of hyaluronic acid are used to enhance lubrication in joints and for other purposes, Remend® Corneal Repair Gel is made up of a unique hyaluronic acid gel that has been specially modified to make it cross-linked, providing an environment conducive to cell movement supporting the natural wound healing process.1

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

1Vanderhooft JL. (2009). Rheological properties of cross-linked hyaluronan-gelatin hydrogels for tissue engineering. Macromol Biosci. 9:20-28.

How is Remend® Corneal Repair Gel applied?

Hands should be washed prior to application to ensure cleanliness. Place 1 to 2 drops directly on the affected eye. Do not touch the tip of the bottle to the eye. The natural movement of the eyelid will distribute the gel over the eye surface. To avoid contamination, do not touch the tip of the container to any surface. Replace cap securely after using.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How often must Remend® Corneal Repair Gel be applied?

Drops should be applied a minimum of 2 times each day, or as directed by a veterinarian until resolution.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

Does Remend® Corneal Repair Gel have an expiration date?

Yes. The expiration date is on each bottle. Remend® Corneal Repair Gel should be stored at room temperature, away from a heat source. If stored in a refrigerator, the product should be allowed to warm to room temperature prior to use. The product should not be frozen.

Warnings: For animal use only. Not to be used as a sole therapy for superficial corneal ulcers; does not contain an antibiotic.

How do Seresto® collars for dogs work?

The Seresto® collar works with a unique polymer matrix of two active ingredients, which spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface of your dog:

  • Imidacloprid has been used in products for years to control flea infestations.
  • Flumethrin effectively kills and repels ticks.
  • Flumethrin works together with imidacloprid to provide dual action against fleas and ticks. No other product has this combination of ingredients.

Sustained release technology

Seresto® works similarly to a monthly topical in the fact that the active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface. The active ingredients in Seresto® are released in low concentrations from within the collar and, thanks to your pet's skin and coat, spread from head to toes, even the tail. As the active ingredients wear off over time, a new supply is continuously replenished in low concentrations for 8 months. The long-lasting, 8-month duration of Seresto® differentiates it from other flea and tick collars.

Watch our video for more information about How It Works.

https://player.vimeo.com/video/155767809
Is Seresto® for dogs water resistant?

Seresto® for dogs is water resistant. The active ingredients of Seresto® are contained within the Bayer Polymer Matrix, making it water resistant. Therefore, it is unnecessary to remove the collar before the pet is immersed in water. Seresto® remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming, or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for eight months. To maintain an 8-month duration, dogs must not be bathed more than once per month. For dogs that swim once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to five months for fleas and seven months for ticks.

Do Seresto® collars for dogs expire?

There is no expiration date required on the packaging by the EPA for Seresto® for dogs. The product should be kept in its original packaging and stored as directed on the label.

Can I bathe my dog with the Seresto® collar on?

What are some of the design features of the Seresto® collar for dogs?

All Seresto® collars are designed with a ratchet release system. The Seresto® small dog collars also have a pre-determined breaking point in the collar. This is the zig zag area on the collar.

How do I apply the Seresto® collar and take it off my dog?

How to apply the Seresto® collar on your dog:

  1. Remove the collar from its packaging.
  2. Unroll the collar and remove the small plastic connectors from inside the collar, ensuring that no remnants remain.
  3. Insert the end of the collar through the buckle and loops.
  4. Adjust the collar around your dog's neck until it fits comfortably on them.
  5. Two fingers should fit beneath the collar and neck to ensure it's not too tight. Any excess length of the collar beyond an inch past the loops should be cut off, unless it is on a growing puppy, where some additional length may be needed for adjustment as the puppy grows.
  6. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially on growing puppies.
  7. Seresto® comes with three optional reflector clips that can be attached to the collar to help keep your dog visible at night. The reflector clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar.

Watch our application video for more information.

How to take the Seresto® collar off your dog:

How did my cat get tapeworms?

The most common way your cat got tapeworms is from having fleas, which often carry immature tapeworms. Cats infested with fleas will frequently ingest them as they groom themselves (a daily behavior) and become infected with tapeworms. Cats that hunt small rodents (in your house or backyard) may also be at risk of infection from tapeworms.

How do I know if my cat has tapeworms?

Tapeworm segments look similar to grains of white rice and are easily seen stuck in your cat's hair under the tail or by the back legs, or in their poop. Of course, it's not always obvious that your cat has tapeworms, so the best way to identify a problem is through an exam performed by a veterinarian.

How often should I deworm my cat?

Luckily, one treatment with Tapeworm Dewormer (praziquantel tablets) for cats should be adequate to clear out the tapeworms.
