Dog Treatment using Permethrin SFR
Many flea and tick treatments contain 44% Permethrin that is spot treated directly to a do a dog's back. Can this be product be used full strength in the same manner? Just a very small amount as in advantix?
Permethin SFR can be used on dogs for flea and tick control as directed on the product label only. It is a concentrate that must be mixed with water first. 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. You can find these instructions on page 16 of the Permethrin SFR product label.
