Stronghold 15mg for puppies and kittens is a prescription only medication for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, ear mites, heartworm, roundworm, hookworm, biting lice, and sarcoptic mange.
Stronghold is a ‘colourless to yellow’ ready to use solution of Selamectin – the active ingredient used to protect your pet against ectoparacites and endoparacites.
Stronghold 15mg for puppies and kittens is available in either 3 pipette or 15 pipette packets. Each pipette is enough to treat a puppy or kitten weighing under 2.5kgs and should be applied to the skin on the back of the neck as directed by a veterinary surgeon. Your veterinary surgeon may advise to apply it more or less regularly.
Stronghold is only available in the UK with a veterinary prescription. Stronghold 15mg for puppies and kittens comes in a pink and white coloured box with a beagle and kitten on the front - each pipette will also have a pink coloured cap.
Please note that Stronghold 15mg for puppies and kittens does not cover against tapeworms. It is recommended to also use a wormer such as Drontal alongside Stronghold to cover your animal against tapeworms. Please ask your vet for advice on which wormer would be suitable for your puppy or kitten.
Stronghold is also available in the following forms; Stronghold Toy Dog, Stronghold Small Dog, Stronghold Medium Dog, Stronghold Large Dog, Stronghold XL Dog and Stronghold Cat and Stronghold Plus Cat.
This product is to be applied to the skin surface only. Do not administer orally or parenterally.
Do not apply when the animal’s hair coat is wet. However, shampooing or soaking the animal 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the efficacy of Stronghold.
For ear mite treatment, do not apply directly to the ear canal.
Remove the Stronghold tube from its protective package. Holding the tube upright, firmly depress the cap to puncture the applicator seal, then remove the cap. Part the hair at the base of the animal’s neck in front of the shoulder blades to expose a small area of skin. Apply the tip of the Stronghold tube directly to the skin without massaging. Squeeze the tube firmly to empty the contents in one spot. Avoid contact between Stronghold and fingers.
