Following a change in legal classification Effipro, the spot-on flea and tick treatment for cats and dogs, is now classified AVM-GSL; meaning it is now available to be sold over the counter in pet shops and retail outlets that cater for pets.

Supplied by Virbac, who also produce Indorex - the UK’s No. 1 household flea spray, this re-classification enables retailers to stock an effective, easy to use and award-winning product that could previously only be dispensed by a vet, pharmacist or SQP.

Approved for use on cats of 1kg and over and dogs 2kg and over, above eight weeks of age, Effipro treats fleas for up to five weeks in cats, and for eight weeks in dogs, and ticks for two weeks on cats and four weeks on dogs. The easy to use, unique Drop-Lock pipette allows Effipro to easily be applied in just the right place, with no mess or fuss.

In addition, Effipro Duo, a spot-on that not only provides protection against fleas and ticks for dogs and cats but also prevent the multiplication of fleas in the home environment, has been re-classified from POM-V to NFA-VPS to allow the product to be sold by Suitably Qualified Persons (SQPs).

A useful tool in any integrated flea control programme, Effipro Duo is designed to kill fleas and prevent flea infestations for up to seven weeks (up to five weeks in cats). Effipro Duo also benefits from the innovative Drop-Lock pipette for ease of delivery.

Both products are available in five presentations, each containing four pipettes, catering for cats and small to extra-large dogs.

“Both Effipro and Effipro Duo offer trusted flea and tick control and exceptional value for money”, said Claire Lewis, product manager at Virbac, “so we are delighted to now be able to offer retailers the opportunity to stock these products in time for peak flea season.”
