Prac-tic is a flea and tick treatment for use on dogs which is based on a different molecule than the other more routinely used treatments. This makes it much less likely that problems with resistance will be encountered when using this product.
Prac-tic kills fleas and ticks for at least 4 weeks after the application of one pipette.

Flea treatment and prevention
Pyriprole kills fleas within 24 hours post exposure. One application prevents flea infestation for 4 weeks. The veterinary medicinal product should be administered at monthly intervals when used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis.
Tick treatment and prevention
Pyriprole kills ticks within 48 hours post-exposure. One application has acaricidal efficacy duration of 4 weeks.
Method of administration
For cutaneous use only.
Remove one pipette from the package. Hold it in an upright position. Tap the narrow part of the pipette to ensure the contents remain within the main body of it. Break the top of the snap-off top along the scored line.
Part the coat on the back of the animal between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze it gently several times at one or two spots to empty the contents onto the skin. Apply the 5 ml pipette to 2-3 spots down the backline of large dogs in order to prevent run-off.
Care should be taken to avoid excessive wetting of the hair with the product since this will cause a clogged appearance of hair at the treatment spot. However, should this occur, it will disappear within 24 hours post application.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in dogs less than 8 weeks of age or with a body weight of less than 2 kg.
Do not use in case of known hypersensitivity to phenylpyrazole class compounds or any of the excipients.
Do not use on sick (e.g. systemic diseases, fever) or convalescent animals.
This product is specifically developed for dogs. Do not use in cats, as this could lead to overdosing.
Do not use on rabbits.
On very rare occasions the following have been reported:
- application site and skin reactions (pruritus, hair change, dermatitis, erythema, alopecia, fur discoloration and greasy appearance of hair).
- neurological reactions (ataxia and convulsions).
- systemic reactions (lethargy).
- digestive tract reactions (emesis and diarrhoea).
A brief period of hypersalivation may occur if the animal licks the application site immediately after treatment. This is not a sign of intoxication and disappears within minutes without treatment. Correct application will minimise licking of the application site.
As a precautionary measure, direct contact with the treated animals should be avoided and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the application site is dry. It is therefore recommended to treat animals in the evening. Recently treated animals should not be allowed to sleep in the same bed as their owners, especially children.
People with known hypersensitivity to the phenylpyrazole class compounds or any of the excipients should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product.
Avoid skin contact with the pipette content. Wash hands or other exposed body parts after use with soap and water. If accidental eye exposure occurs, the eyes should be rinsed carefully with water.
Do not smoke, eat or drink during application.
Apply only to the skin surface and on intact skin. This veterinary medicinal product is for spot-on application only. Do not administer orally or via any other route.
The dogs should be accurately weighed before the treatment. Care should be taken to avoid contact of the veterinary medicinal product with the eyes of the animal.
It is important to apply the dose to an area where the dog cannot lick it off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment.
Following treatment, ticks will detach from the host within 24 to 48 hours after infestation; however, single ticks might remain on the animal. For this reason, a transmission of infectious diseases by ticks cannot be completely excluded.
This veterinary medicinal product is for the treatment of ticks and adult fleas. All dogs in a household should be treated.
In cases of heavy infestation prior to treatment, the dog’s surrounding should be vacuumed and treated with a suitable insecticide.
Dogs should not be bathed or shampooed from 48 hours before treatment. Immersion of the animal in water or shampooing within 24 hours after treatment may reduce the efficacy of the veterinary medicinal product. However, weekly immersion in water did not affect efficacy against fleas and ticks.
The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during pregnancy and lactation, nor in breeding animals, although in laboratory animal studies no indications of relevant effects on reproduction or foetal development were observed. Use only accordingly to the benefit/risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian.
Prac-tic should not enter watercourses as this may be dangerous for fish and other aquatic organisms.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction : None Known
The veterinary medicinal product is an insecticidal and acaricidal solution for spot-on use, containing pyriprole as active substance.
Pyriprole is an insecticide and acaricide belonging to the phenylpyrazole class. It acts by interacting with ligand-gated chloride channels, in particular those gated by the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), thereby blocking pre- and post-synaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. This results in uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and death of fleas and ticks.
Parasites are killed through contact rather than by systemic exposure. Pyriprole kills fleas within 24 hours and ticks (Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Dermacentor reticulatus, Ixodes scapularis, Dermacentor variabilis, Amblyomma americanum) within 48 hours post-exposure.
Adult fleas are killed before they lay eggs for a minimum of 4 weeks after treatment. Since Prac-tic completely eliminates egg production, it breaks the flea life cycle.
