Virbac Defencare Flea & Tickshampoo for dogs
Defencare shampoo is a fast-acting anti-parasitic shampoo against fleas and ticks in dogs. The active ingredient is permethrin, which kills all the fleas quickly and reliably. It has a toxic effect on the nervous system of insects, fleas are killed within hours.
Permethrin is safe for humans and dogs (Do not use on cats!) and is biodegradable. Depending on the infection pressure treated animals are protected from reinfestation1 to 2 weeks.
Defencare shampoo works short and is therefore ideally suited for the control of existing flea and / or tick infestation.
Warning: Permethrin shouldn't be used on, young puppies (under 12 weeks), pregnant or nursing dogs, sick dogs, or dogs with kidney, liver or heart disease. It should never be used in conjunction with flea or tick collars or other flea/tick products
NEVER use permethrin on cats! Exercise caution and follow label warnings when using permethrin products if you have cats.. Avoid using it on dogs who play with or are groomed by family cats. Don't use it around fish tanks or ponds either as it is toxic to fish.
