What is Stronghold Flea Treatment?
It is available as a spot-on solution in 2 different concentrations (6% and 12%) and in tubes of various strengths (15, 30, 45, 60, 120, 240 and 360mg).

Stronghold Spot On is primarily used to treat and prevent infestations with parasites both externally and internally. It has an effect externally to kill parasites such as fleas and mites that live on the skin or in the fur of cats and dogs. In addition it is effective at treating worm parasites that live inside the animal's body.

sarcoptic mange (scabies)
adult intestinal roundworms

How do I apply Stronghold Spot On?
When you are ready to treat your dog, push the tube through the foil blister pack. Press the cap of the tube down and then open. Part the fur between your dog's shoulder blades so you can see the skin. Then squeeze the contents of the tube onto this area. This liquid is absorbed by the skin and has an effect throughout their body.
Selamectin is the active substance in the anti-parasitic medicine Stronghold Spot On. Selamectin is part of the avermectin class of anit-parasitic medicines. Selamectin works by activating special protiens in the nerve and muscle cells of parasites, which disrupts their normal electrical activity and causes their death or paralysis.
When treating your dog with Stronghold Spot On, please be aware that it is highly flammable. So treatment should be given well away from heat, sparks, open fires or other sources of ignition. You should not smoke, eat or drink while applying as this can lead to accidental transfer to the mouth. You should wash your hands thoroughly once you have treated your dog.
It is advised that you do not handle the treated area until the application has fully absorbed (dried) into the skin. Once empty the tubes should be safely disposed of fully out of sight and reach of all children and pets.
