Special Instructions & How to Apply
Do not use in animals under 6 weeks of age. Do not use in cats that are suffering from concomitant disease, or are debilitated and underweight (for size and age).
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.
