|This product requires a prescription|
Selarid is recommended for use in dogs six weeks of age or older for the following parasites and indications. Selarid kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month and is indicated for the prevention and control of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, and the treatment and control of ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) infestations. Selarid also is indicated for the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange (Sarcoptes scabiei) and for the control of tick infestations due to Dermacentor variabilis.
For the prevention and control of flea infestations, Selarid should be administered at monthly intervals throughout the flea season, starting one month before fleas become active.
For the prevention of heartworm disease, Selarid must be administered on a monthly basis. Selarid may be administered year-round or at least within one month after the animal's first exposure to mosquitoes and monthly thereafter until the end of the mosquito season.
60 mg selamectin per applicator
The recommended minimum dose is 2.7 mg selamectin per pound (6 mg/kg) of body weight.
Administer the entire contents of a single dose applicator (or two applicators used in combination for dogs weighing over 130 pounds).
Remove the applicator from the outer pouch using scissors or fold along diagonal line to expose nick; tear back at nick. Hold the applicator upright. Tap the narrow part of the applicator to ensure the contents remain within the main body of the applicator. Twist or snap back the tip. To administer the product, part the hair on the back of the animal at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the applicator on the skin and squeeze the applicator 3 or 4 times to empty its entire contents directly onto the skin in one spot. Keeping the applicator squeezed, drag it away from the liquid and lift to remove. Check the applicator to ensure that it is empty. Do not massage the product into the skin. Due to alcohol content, do not apply to broken skin. Avoid contact between the product and fingers. Do not apply when the haircoat is wet. Bathing or shampooing the dog 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Selarid against fleas or heartworm. Bathing or shampooing the cat 2 hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Selarid against fleas. Bathing or shampooing the cat 24 hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Selarid against heartworm. Stiff hair, clumping of hair, hair discoloration, or a slight powdery residue may be observed at the treatment site in some animals. These effects are temporary and do not affect the safety or effectiveness of the product. Discard empty applicators in your ordinary household refuse.
