Activyl Spot-On Solution is a new kind of flea treatment that delivers benefits beyond excellent flea control. Activyl is the first treatment to work by "metabolic activation" or bioactivation and will only become active once it is inside the flea. This means Activyl is highly selective for fleas and minimises unnecessary chemical exposure to pets, humans and their environment. However, Activyl does much more than just kill adult fleas. It is also effective against all developing stages of the flea life cycle and will even prevent eggs developing into larvae.

Special precautions for use
Care should be taken to apply the dose to an area where the animal cannot lick it off, as described under Amounts to be administered and administration route, and to ensure that animals do not groom each other immediately following treatment. Care should be taken to ensure that the content of the pipette or the applied dose does not come into contact with the eyes of the recipient and/or other animals. The product remains effective following shampoo treatment, water immersion (swimming, bathing) and exposure to sunlight. However, animals should not be allowed to swim or treated with shampoo within 48 hours after treatment.
Do not eat, drink or smoke while handling the veterinary medicinal product. The sachet is child-resistant. Keep the product in the sachet until use, in order to prevent children from getting direct access to the product. Keep the used pipette out of reach and sight of children. Wash hands immediately after use. This product contains indoxacarb. People with known hypersensitivity to indoxacarb should not use this product. As the veterinary medicinal product may cause moderate eye irritation, avoid contact with eyes. If this occurs, rinse slowly and gently with water. This product is highly flammable. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame or other sources of ignition.
A brief period of hypersalivation may occasionally occur if the animal licks the application site immediately after treatment. This is not a sign of intoxication and disappears within some minutes without treatment. Correct application will minimise licking of the application site.Transitory scratching or hair loss at the application site may occur.These effects will usually resolve without treatment.
The application of the veterinary medicinal product may produce a local, temporary oily appearance or hair clumping at the application site. A dry white residue may be also observed. This is normal and will generally resolve within a couple of days after administration. These changes do not affect the safety or efficacy of the veterinary product.
