What is Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs?

Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs is a medication that works to treat and prevent infestations of parasites such as fleas. Designed to be used directly on your dog’s skin, the solution kills fleas to relieve your pet of discomfort and reduce the risk of parasitic diseases.

The ready-to-use solution comes in pre-filled pipettes to allow for easy dosing and no need for the hassle of giving your pet tablets. It can also be used to treat intestinal roundworms, biting lice, ear mites and scabies. It can also be used to prevent heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis with monthly administration.

Use Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs monthly to ensure long-lasting protection for your dog against fleas, and also to prevent heartworm disease (caused by dirofilaria immitis).

The medicine has been developed specifically for dogs. If you are looking to treat an infestation in a cat then be sure to request Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Cats instead.

How does Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs work?

The active ingredient in Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs is selamectin, which attacks the nervous system of parasites to paralyse and kill them. It mimics an important amino acid and disrupts the parasite’s nerve cells. Because the solution is designed to be applied to the skin, rather than ingested by your animal, it doesn’t require a flea to bite your pet for it to begin working.

Instructions for Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs

When you receive the medication, it’s important to read and understand the dosage instructions. The strength and dose of the medication will depend on the size of your pet.

Always use medications as directed by your vet. The solution should be applied to your dog’s skin, on the back of the neck. Begin by parting the dog’s hair and then squeeze the contents of the pipette onto the skin. The dosage required will depend on body weight.

Dogs weighing between 2.6 and 5kg will need the Stronghold 30mg for Toy Dogs. Dogs weighing between 5 and 10kg will need the Stronghold 60mg for Small Dogs. Dogs weighing between 10 and 20kg will need the Stronghold 120mg for Medium Dogs. Dogs weighing between 20 and 40kg will need the Stronghold 240mg for Large Dogs. Dogs weighing between 40 and 60kg will need the Stronghold 360mg for Extra Large Dogs.

You should treat your dog with Stronghold Spot-On Solution for Dogs once-a-month to ensure long-lasting, ongoing protection against flea infestations.
