Effipro is the practical, more affordable flea and tick treatment choice for your pet, available without a veterinary prescription. With a new formulation of Fipronil, the same tried and trusted active ingredient as the world famous leading brand, you can protect your pet with confidence, without breaking the bank. Effipro has a unique, clear, non-drip pipette, thanks to its ‘drop lock’ technology, meaning you can apply the product with greater control, less mess and fuss. You can also be sure you have applied all of the solution to your animal because of the clear pipette, so providing better protection. Effipro will cover dogs against fleas for 8 weeks, and against ticks for 4 weeks. Cats benefit from 5 weeks flea protection and 2 weeks tick protection. Effipro also provides a more flexible solution than traditional flea and tick treatments, as you can purchase as many or a few pipettes as you require to treat your pets. The best value flea and tick treatment we have. Veterinary prescription NOT required. Recommended to be applied every 4 weeks.
In addition to this flea treatment you may require an additional household spray like Indorex Flea Spray to combat fleas which may not have yet hatched or dormant fleas in and around the house. It is imperative to start treating fleas before there is any chance of a population build-up in the background. Very commonly people think that flea treatment is not working when they are expecting too much of the product. Most of the flea population lives off the pet and can act as a reservoir for your pets for a long time if it is allowed to get out of hand.
Please take care not to let the product come into contact with varnished or other household surfaces. The alcohol carrier in the product may have adverse effects on these surfaces. Allow the products to fully dry before allowing the animal contact with these surfaces and do not put used pipettes on them.

Effipro Spot-On is an effective treatment for the prevention of fleas and ticks. It is based on a new formula of the tried-and-tested agent Fipronil, an insecticide and acaricide belonging to the phenylpyrazole family, which is recognised to be active against fleas and ticks, killing fleas within 24 hour and ticks usually within 48 hours. Fipronil action is fast, effective, and provides lasting protection. Fipronil-based Effipro is also practical and affordable. Effipro can be used on Kittens and Puppies from 2 months of age and/or weighing more than 1kg in bodyweight. Available in packs of 4 or 24 pipettes, Effipro is ideal for households with more than one cat or dog.
Effipro is supplied as an innovative drop-free Spot-on to help you avoid getting any liquid on your fingers when opening - it couldn't be easier.Effipro Spot On is administered to the skin on the back of the neck. Follow the instructions on the packet for correct application. Apply every four weeks to maintain flea cover. It is important to apply the dose to an area where the animal cannot lick off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other after treatment. Ensure that treated animals do not groom each other after treatment until dry.
Effipro does not prevent ticks from attaching to the animals. If the animal has been treated prior to exposure to the ticks, the ticks will be killed in the first 24-48 hours after attachment. This will usually be prior to engorgement, minimising but not excluding the risk of transmission of diseases. Once dead, ticks will often drop off the animal, but any remaining ticks may be removed with a gentle pull.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Effipro Spot On Flea Treatment for Dogs & Cats, including answers from our team.
Good morning. Our vet prescribed Effipro for our kitten 1.1kg. There is no dosage info on the pack - will one pipette provide protection for an adult cat ^.5kg. Thank you.
The Effipro Spot On for cats is safe for use in kittens over 1kg and 2 months of age. It is dosed at 1 pipette per cat, regardless of size. This product will safely provide protection against fleas and ticks in your 1.1kg kitten, as long as they are over 2 months of age.
How long are you not aloud to bathe or take swimming or generally get wet after application?
The datasheet for this product states the following:
Fipronil and pyriproxyfen may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Dogs
should be prevented from accessing streams and rivers for 48-hours
When last treated my dog, used ELIMINALL (fipronil)- dog got distressed, rolling about on grass to trying to remove it.
Would your product EFFIPRO be more suitable?
I recommend discussing this reaction with your vet to confirm it. Just rolling around in the grass may be that your dog does not like liquid spot on products. However if your dog definitely has an allergy to fipronil then I advise avoiding all fipronil based products. Effipro contains fipronil so I would avoid this. You can use flea treatments containing imidacloprid though, such as Advantage.
Does this product prevent eggs from hatching as well as killing ticks and adult fleas?
Effipro Spot On contains Fipronil which will kill fleas/lice/ticks but does not have an insect growth regulator in too, so will not prevent the larvae turning into adults. I recommend checking out Effipro Duo Spot On if you want a product with one of these in too. It contains Fipronil but also Pyriproxyfen which is an insect growth regulator.
Is it Deosect chemical
No, Effipro does not contain the same chemical as Deosect.
Effipro contains fipronil and is licensed for the treatment of fleas and ticks in cats and dogs.
Deosect contains cypermethrin and the product is licensed for treating flies and lice in horses and donkeys.
I hope this answers your question!
Effipro Medium is stated to be shareable, but larger sizes are not! I suspect this is a mistake, but I don't understand why a product like this wouldn't be shareable (although it obviously isn't as profitable)! As I see it, my two 16 & 19kg dogs should be able to use a single 20-40kg dose.
Each dog requires a full dose of the product. There is just enough in each pipette to properly treat a single dog weighing between 20-40kg. If you split the dose in half and shared it between two dogs, you would be underdosing both and neither would be treated against fleas or ticks.
I hope this helps,
Can this be used on a mother cat nursing kittens?
Studies have not been carried out with this product in pregnant and lactating bitches. Use in pregnancy and lactation only in accordance with professional veterinary advice and a benefit/risk assessment.
It states the idea is to be applied every 4 weeks but can it be used more frequently?
Sometimes it might be used more frequently, but legally that is classed as not in line with the official license, so only the vet genuinely responsible for the care of the animal is able to offer advice on this. As an online supplier, we are bound to stick to the terms of the license/data sheet. You should talk to your own vet about "off license" use.
My dog weighs 20kg. Should I use the M pipette which says is for up to 20kg OR the large which says from 20kg. I will either be under or over dosing
Strictly the correct dose is the smaller pipette, which is for up to (and including) 20kg. The larger pipette is for "over 20kg" which your dog is not. In fact there is so much leeway on this that the dose is not critical and you could safely use either size. The main difference will be a few weeks after application. The the larger size will remain effective for longer, whereas the smaller size is more likely to be fading sooner. The guide is 8 weeks for fleas, 4 weeks for ticks. The higher dose is more likely to fully achieve these figures.
My cats are currently on Advantage up to 4kg since one was diagnosed with asthma. Previously they were on front line, but was told advantage was safer for a cat with asthma. Just wondering if this is too please?
I am not aware of any scientific evidence that Advantage is more or less safe or effective that Frontline. Effipro contains the same ingredient as Frontline and is to all intents and purposes the same as Frontline. I think that flea "allergies" can be involved in systemic reactions in cats and have a significant effect on feline asthma, so good flea control makes a lot of sense. I think you should be fine using Advantage, though it might be just as safe with the other products too.
