Can Bifen IT be used on animals as a flea and tick dip?
We have several outdoor animals (dogs and cats). And I am wondering if I can use Bifen IT as a dip to get rid of the fleas and ticks and keep them away.
Bifen IT is not labeled for use on animals in any way. For dogs we would recommend the Permethrin SFR for a flea and tick dip. You can use it diluted with water as a dip, or a general rub down on their fur for control. Please see the bottom of page 16 of the Product Label for exact mixing rates and how to apply properly to your pet. For cats, we recommend using something like Petcor Flea spray that can be applied to a towel and then rubbed onto the cat. Petcor will treat flea eggs and flea adults and ticks
