Note to customers: if you have small children, it is best to keep pets away from your children for 48 to 72 hours after administering a spot on flea treatment. If isolating your children from your pets will be a hardship, consider using an over-the-counter flea tablet for cats and dogs like Capstar or Program flea tablets for dogs only.
