Can Suspend SC be used on dogs for flea & ticks?

If yes what rate/gal? If no, what is the best product for use on dogs for fleas & ticks?


Suspend SC cannot be used on any animals. Permethrin SFR is a concentrate that can be used on dogs (do not use on cats) for flea and tick control. According to the Permethrin SFR product label you will mix ¼ fl. oz. of concentrate to 1 pt. water and use 1-2 fl. oz. of dilution to spray on each animal. Spot treat back, face, legs tail and ears. If you would like to "dip" the dogs you will use ¼ fl. oz. to 1¼ gallons water and thoroughly wet the dog to the skin with sponge or rag. Let drip dry. We also have a ready to use product called Petcor Flea/Tick spray which requires no measuring or mixing.
