    What is Bio Spot Defense Flea and Tick Control for Dogs?

    Bio Spot Defense Flea and Tick Control for Dogs is a topical monthly application that kills fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae and ticks and kills and repels mosquitoes. It comes with an easy-to-use applicator that helps to get the solution right down to the skin. It works for up to one month and prevents re-infestation. Bio Spot for Dogs is made in the U.S.A.

    For: Dogs & Puppies
    (6 months of age or older)


    Benefits:
    Kills fleas and ticks, and kills and repels mosquitoes
    Eliminates flea eggs and flea larvae, preventing re-infestation
    Easy-to-use applicator dispenser gets the solution down to pet's skin

    How it works:
    Bio Spot Defense Flea and Tick Control for Dogs starts working within 15 minutes. It contains Etofenprox which kills fleas and ticks and kills and repels mosquitoes. It also contains S-Methoprene to prevent flea eggs from growing into adults. Bio Spot Defense comes with a Smart Shield applicator that is designed to make applying the solution to your dog easy. The applicator breaks off the tip of the liquid filled tube and aids in getting the solution right down to your pet's skin and not just the fur. Also, since you don't have to touch the tip of the tube directly, the Smart Shield applicator helps to keep your hands clean.

    Cautions:
    Keep out of reach of children. Do Not Use on Cats. Keep cats away from a treated dog for 24 hours. If applied or ingested, contact your veterinarian immediately.

    No problems witrh the fleas on Dutchess and diego and koko. 06/12/2011
    Best for my pets It seems from the reviews, either this stuff works or it doesn't. Well it has worked great for us for years. We have dog (and 3 outdoor cats) and live in a heavy tick area. We've tried the other name brands and they didn't work on. With Bio Spot we no longer find ticks on the pets or in the house, making me VERY happy. While ticks are my biggest concern, I should mention we've never had any fleas either. 05/12/2011
    flea magnet? Switched from frontline to biospot. Within 2 months, my dogs had fleas. It took me another 3 months to fully break the flea cycle and rid my dogs and house of fleas. Will NEVER make that mistake again! 04/26/2011
    Petroleum oder sensitivity? I used to work as a Certified Veterinary Nurse and have had experience with several products that kill/repel the problem. I always found the petroleum derived products to do the job but the smell left behind was offensive/ With BioSpot a citrus oder covers my dogs! They have not given off that auto garage fume for many years and have not had any problem with skin, coat or parasites. I haven't used anything else since I started using BioSpot! NOTE:This review template asked about "Taste". I'm afraid I haven't taken my research to that level. Sorry. 04/20/2011
    It works Applied to my Boxer/greyhound mix after a tick got on him. 4 years later I can honestly say that he has not had another tick nor a flea since using it. I understand some animals can't handle it but my mutt had no problems ever with it. My vet does not recommend it but agrees that if it works to use it. 04/12/2011

    Answer: 
    I would not put the entire tube on her all at once. Just like when you dye your hair try a little bit each day until you empty the tube. Just put a piece of tape over the open tube. Do it in the evening so you can watch her all night - don't do it and leave her - do it so you can watch her for at least 5 hours.

    Answer: 
    Our vet told us that this product is actually a very potent insectacide is not good for your dog and can kill your cat, that is just when you are following the instructions.
    We used this product on our dog before we knew it was dangerous and not only is it bad for the dog but did not keep a tick off of her and now she has limes disease.
    I'm guessing ingesting it is, BAD.

    Answer: 
    Bio Spot is an insecticide product containing permethrin and s-methoprene. Both of these products can be harmful if ingested by your pet. Store this product out of the reach of children and pets and use the product as directed by the manufacturer on the package label. If your pet does swallow this product accidentally, contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room right away.
