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). The concentration and the strength to use depends on the weight and species of the animal being treated. The correct concentration and size will be determined by your vet during their examination of your pet and stated in their written prescription.
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.
As combination treatment (for both internal and external infestation) Stronghold flea treatment can help treat:
sarcoptic mange (scabies)
adult intestinal roundworms
treatment for flea allergy dermatitis (FAD)

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.

I have been using Pet Drugs Online for the last few years. Their medication is always the cheapest I've found, saving me thousands of pounds it would have cost me buying it from the vets. Excellent customer service and delivery as well.
Good service & great value, their savings are a lot more than other online pet drug companies .
Delivery could've been quicker considering it wasn't free.

Thankyou for your feedback. The effipro treatment is a fipronil based treatment which a large number of flea products use. These are effective in killing adult fleas but not the egg or larvae stage. It would be worth either trying frontline plus which will treat all stages of the flea cycle. Or use a household spray to treat the immature stages that are in the home
Kind regards Shirley
