PET-SPOT C contains an organophosphorus compound with systemic action. Fenthion acts by inhibiting cholinesterase in synapses, paralyzing and killing parasites. It is used against flea infestations in dogs, being very efficient during the treatment and having a residual action for 4 weeks. In one hour after the treatment, Fenthion is absorbed in proportion of 50%, and after 8 hours 97% and it lays in the conjunctive tissue. It is eliminated from the organism in two days.
The long time effect is obtained by gradually eliminating the active substance from the deposits formed in the conjunctive tissue. The product’s efficiency is not affected by bathing the dog or by the fur’s length or condition.More info

In case of fleas’ reinvasion, another dose is applied, only after 4 weeks. It is recommended to apply the treatment in the evening, so that until morning the drug is completely absorbed in the application area. In the following 3 days after the application avoid touching and cutting the fur in the application area.
Irritation, hair loss and itches might appear in the application area. In these cases the animal should be washed with soft soap and then rinsed with a lot of water. In some cases anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea and intermittent coughing might appear. Consult the veterinarian in case the symptoms still exist.
Do not use PET-SPOT C during the last week of gestation. In 10 days before and after the treatment avoid using other cholinesterase inhibitors, phenothiazine derivatives (e.g. neuroleptics) and muscle relaxants (e.g. succinylcholine).
In case of accidental overdosing, beside the side effects, it might appear the following phenomena: miosis, hypersalivation, vomiting, diarrhea or spasms.
In this case it should be used as antidote Atropine, administrated intravenous or intramuscular, in doses starting with 0.3 mg/kg, depending on the symptoms. The repeated dozing is ceased when salivation stops. After atropinization, if necessary, it will be used cholinesterase reactivators (e.g. Toxogonin or Pralidoxime). Fenthion is incompatible with strong reducing agents, with which it might react.
