Reference: 1. Schuele G et al. The effect of water and shampooing on the efficacy of a pyriprole 12.5% solution against brown dog tick (R.sanguineus) and cat flea (C.felis) infestations on dogs (2008) 151(2-4); 300-311. Dogs should not be bathed or shampooed 48 hours before treatment. Immersion of the animal in water or shampooing within 24 hours after treatment may reduce the efficacy of the veterinary medicinal product. However, weekly immersion in water did not affect efficacy against fleas and ticks. Veterinary Parasitology (2007) doi: 10.10.16/j.vetpar.2007.10.009.

Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the spot-on pipette on the skin and squeeze gently to empty its contents onto the skin, preferably at two spots, one at the base of the skull and a second 2-3cm's further back.
Within each weight range the entire contents of the correct size pipette should be deposited on the dog’s skin.

short term coverWe bought this product to cover our dogs from getting ticks while in France because of the risk of rabies.. They did not pick up any ticks for a couple of weeks, however, a month later back in the UK one of them picked up a tick. So, my summary is that it works well in the short term and is certainly cheaper than buying form the vets who add a sizeable mark up.
Practic worksI have used Practic for some years and found it good against fleas and particularly tics.
