How it Works
Adam’s Flea and Tick Spot-On treatment works by killing fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. It has the following active ingredients:
- Piperonyl botuxide
- Other undisclosed ingredients
Logically, the quantity of ingredients varies depending on the type of dosage.
Etofenprox is a pyrethroid that is harmless to humans and is environment friendly. It acts by opening sodium channels in neuronal membranes causing paralysis and death.
Etofenprox is always combined with piperonyl botuxide, which is an organic compound. It allows pyrethroid to remain in the animal for a longer time.
(S)-methoprene acts as a growth inhibitor to prevent larvae and eggs from becoming adults.
Adam’s Flea and Tick Spot-On treatment is waterproof, but you should allow 24 hours for the treatment to dry before bathing or exposing your pet to water.
It should be applied once a month for up to three months, preferably on the same day.
The treatment should only be used on dogs that are older than 6 months. There is no age information available for cats.
