VETERINARY FORMULA CLINICAL CARE FLEA & TICK SPRAY
Veterinary Formula® Flea & Tick Spray for Dogs provides dogs with up to 14 weeks of protection against fleas and ticks – the longest lasting results available on the market today.
Dogs & other warm-blooded animals are especially prone to catching fleas in warm-weathered climates or during the summer months when air temperatures and humidity levels are high. Dogs can catch fleas from other furry friends, or from the environment. Fleas use their strong back legs to jump on the “host” (your dog) and then bite the animal. These bites can cause itching, hair-loss & hot-spots from itching, inflamed lesions and even skin infections. You may also notice small dirt-like particles on your pet – which is flea feces and digested blood.
The female fleas can live up to a few weeks on your pet, and may lay between 20-30 eggs a day during that time. Some eggs will hatch into larvae on your pet, while the others fall off, into your home environment – where they feed off skin scales and other organic matter. Pet parents must treat both the dog as well as the inside & outside home environments. We recommend using Veterinary Formula Clinical Care Flea & Tick Shampoo in conjunction with our Richard’s Organics Premise Treatment for Fleas – made with 100% natural Boric Acid.
Ticks are parasitic anthropods that attach themselves and feed off warm hosts, such as your dog. Ticks are usually found in the wooded areas, in long grass, and plants. Dogs that spend a lot of time outdoors are prone to encountering a tick at any given time. When your dog does, the tick can attach and lock its mouth into a crevice or fold and begin to feed on blood – sometimes even feeding for days. Besides being gross, ticks cause major concern for animals and people alike because of a high-risk for transmitting diseases such as Lyme, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, or Babesiosis. A tick bite can also cause anemia, joint-swelling, fever, and paralysis. If your pet displays any signs of illness, and you suspect he/she was bitten by a tick, consult your veterinarian immediately. Always check your pet for ticks if they’ve been running around outside, especially in wooded areas.

DIRECTIONS: FOR USE ON DOGS ONLY
Spray animal with spray nozzle about 8-12 inches from the pet. Start spraying animal at the tail, making sure to spray entire coat of the animal, including legs, tail, and underbody. With your hand, fluff hair against the way it normally lays to ensure the spray penetrates through coat to the skin. Refer to chart above to apply the appropriate amount of product to animal. Do not exceed the maximum number of pump spray applications for animal’s body weight. Do not saturate the animal and do not spray in face or eyes or on genitals. Repeat as required, but not more often than once every 14 days (2 weeks).
FOR USE IN DOG AREAS
TREAT dog bedding and other pet resting places, as these are primary hiding areas for fleas and ticks; no need to remove pet bedding after treatment. To reduce infestation, spray around sleeping areas, baseboards, window and door frames, wall cracks, local area of floors, and other resting places until the surface of dog houses and kennels. Do not allow pets to use treated areas until completely dry. For best results, to protect your pet against and to minimize reintroduction of adult fleas from outdoors, use EPA registered flea and tick products.
