4.0% Permethrin 25:75(cis:trans)
A highly effective insecticide and tickicide with insect repellent activity
Highly Effective Tickicide and Insecticide.
In laboratory trials, a single application of PERMOXIN prevents tick attachment for over two weeks and resulted in greater than 98% flea control for 20 days.
Flea and Insect Repellent.
When applied daily to flea allergic dogs, PERMOXIN repels fleas and gives relief to the pruritic dog. In fact, the high safety margin means that Permoxin can be applied as often as needed, to maintain the repellent action.
Binds to the Hair Coat.
PERMOXIN utilises advanced technology which allows it to bind to clean hair and skin for long acting effectiveness. Peak activity is maintained by regular weekly top up rinses to produce saturation of the hair coat.
Resists Inactivation by Light.
This ensures a longer duration of action than the natural pyrethrins which decompose rapidly on exposure to air and light.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Dilute to 1:40 (as directed by label) in water, or methylated spirits if a rapid drying spray is required. Spray or rinse as directed.
NOT to be used on cats
Although the laboratory trials show 100% control of Paralysis ticks for 13 days, it is recommended that dogs should be rinsed thoroughly every 7 days, with daily inspections for ticks to ensure good control in a clinical use situation.
