Program is a flavoured oral tablet for the prevention and control of flea infestations in dogs. This product works for a period of 4 weeks and is safe to use on puppies from 6 weeks of age.
The active ingredient in Program is Lufenuron which is an insect growth regulator. Lufenuron interrupts the flea breeding cycle by preventing the development of flea eggs and larvae. Therefore, adult fleas which feed on a pet treated with Program will produce eggs or larvae that do not develop into adult fleas, thus reducing the number of fleas in the environment.
Program must be administered at monthly intervals. Administer the tablet with food or orally after feeding. Where more than one dog is being treated, ensure that each dog is treated individually. i.e do not split one tablet to treat more than one dog.
1 tablet will treat one dog weighing between 21 - 40 kg and contains 409.8mg of Lufenuron.
For dogs weighing over 40 kg, a combination of tablets should be used according to their weight.
Do not use on puppies younger than 6 weeks of age.
Dogs already infested with fleas should be treated with an adulticide as Program does not kill adult fleas.
It is important to ensure that Program is given either with or after a meal.
