The statements are intended to inform the consumer of possible issues that can occur with the product and steps to take if they do occur.

The active ingredients in the Gold product are etofenprox and nylar. Etofenprox is a new class of pesticide for use in this type of application and is commonly know n as the adulticide. Etofenprox is not a pyrethroid, which is the common family of adulticide in other over-the-counter squeeze-on's. Nylar is the Insect Growth Regulator in the Gold formula, which prevents fleas from hatching and reinfesting the cat.
