Virbac Effipro Spot-On for Cats

Effipro Spot-On for Cats is for the prevention and treatment of fleas and ticks in cats and kittens over 2 months of age and weighing over 1kg.

Effipro Spot-On for Cats contains 50mg fipronil, which is effective against fleas for up to 5 weeks and ticks for up to 2 weeks. It will usually kill fleas within 24 hours and ticks within 48 hours. If some species of tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Ixodes ricinus) are present prior to application, they may not be killed within 48 hours, but may be killed within a week. It will not prevent ticks from attaching to your cat, but if it has been applied prior to exposure to ticks, they will be killed in 24-48 hours, usually before engorgement.

Effipro Spot-On can also be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) where this has been previously diagnosed by a veterinary surgeon.

Effipro Spot-On is quick and easy to apply in new leak-free pipettes and leaves no greasy residue.

This product contains 4 x 0.5ml pipettes, which is 4 treatments. For optimal control of fleas and ticks, the treatment schedule with Effipro Spot-On can be based on your local conditions, but treatment should not be repeated within 4 weeks.

Fleas from pets often infest the animal's basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings, so in cases of massive infestation, it is recommended that you treat these areas with a household flea spray and vacuum regularly. For optimum control of flea problems in a multi-pet household, all dogs and cats in the household should be treated with a suitable insecticide.

Administer the Effipro by topical application to the skin: 1 pipette of 0.5ml per cat.
  • Hold the pipette upright. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure that the contents are within the main body of the pipette. Break the snap-off top of the spot-on pipette along the scored line.
  • Part the pet's coat until its skin is visible. Place the tip of the Effipro pipette directly against the bared skin and squeeze gently several times to empty its contents. Repeat this procedure at one or two different points along the cat’s back, preferably at the base of the head and between the shoulders.
  • It is important to make sure that the Effipro Spot On 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.
  • Care should be taken to avoid excessive wetting of the hair with the product since this will cause a sticky appearance of hairs at the treatment spot. However, should this occur, it will disappear within 24 hours post application.
  • White deposits may also be seen at the site for up to 48 hours after application.
  • For animal treatment only. For external use only.
  • In the absence of available data, the product should not be used on kittens less than 2 months old and/or weighing less than 1kg.
  • Do not use on sick (systemic diseases, fever…) or convalescent animals.
  • Do not use in rabbits, as adverse drug reactions and even death could occur.
  • Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of excipients.
  • Avoid contact with the animal’s eyes. In the case of accidental eye contact, immediately and thoroughly flush the eyes with water. Do not apply the product on wounds or damaged skin.
  • If licking occurs, a brief period of hypersalivation may be observed due mainly to the nature of the carrier.
  • Among the extremely rare suspected adverse reactions, transient cutaneous reactions at the application site (squamosis, local alopecia, pruritus, erythema) and general pruritus or alopecia have been reported after use. Exceptionally, hypersalivation, reversible neurologic symptoms (hyperesthesia, depression, nervous symptoms) or vomiting have been observed after use.
  • Operator warnings: This product can cause mucous membrane and eye irritation. Therefore, contact between the product and the mouth or eyes should be avoided. In the case of accidental eye contact, immediately and thoroughly flush the eyes with water. If eye irritation persists seek medical advice and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician. Avoid contents coming into contact with the fingers. If this occurs, wash hands with soap and water. Wash hands after use. Do not smoke, drink or eat during application.
  • Animals or operators with a known hypersensitivity to fipronil or excipients should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product.
  • 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 should not be allowed to sleep with owners, especially children.
  • Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
  • Fipronil may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with the product or empty container.
