  4. Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
  5. Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.
  6. Part the hair on the neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin. Do not get this product in your cat’s eyes, or allow your cat to ingest this product. The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occur for a short time if the cat licks the product immediately after treatment. Treatment at the base of the skull will minimize the opportunity for the cat to lick the product. Do not allow the product to run off.

    What does “do not apply the product to run off” mean?

    • Adam Retzer September 28, 2017, 3:47 pm

      It means to try to keep the application on the directed area of the cat, the skin on neck (as per the instructions). If the hair isn’t properly parted, the product may end up getting squeezed onto the hair and then running off the cat, instead of reaching the skin where it can work effectively.
