• Flea and tick control products are safe and effective when used as directed. However, you must first Look at the Label to ensure the product you select is right for your pet.

    Sergeant's recommends pet owners look for the following information on product labels:

    • Look for the dosage amount for the size and age of your pet. Products are specially formulated for pets based on weight.
      • Make sure the weight of your animal matches the dosage on the product package.
      • Make sure your pet meets the age requirements stated on the product package.

    This information is always on the front of the product package, making it easy reference for consumers as they shop.

    • All flea and tick product labels indicate for which species the product is intended. Never use a flea and tick control product intended for dogs on a cat, and vice versa.
    • Check the label for active ingredients and warnings. By knowing the active ingredient, you can compare effectiveness and safety. See back panel example.
    • Look for the manufacturer's contact information should you have any questions or need help. Typically this information can be found on the bottom of the back label. And, as with medications for humans, carefully read and follow all label instructions.

    Additional Key Tips to Follow:

    • Healthy Pet? Determine if your pet is healthy and in the correct age range before using any flea and tick control product. Before using a Sergeant's product, contact Sergeant's 24-hour hotline at (800) 224-7387 or your veterinarian if your pet is weak, feeble, pregnant, nursing, aged, using medication or has other health issues.
    • Weight & Age: It is very important to make sure your dog meets the minimum weight requirements stated on the product package.
    • Avoid double-dosing. Sergeant's squeeze-on products are designed to work alone and NOT in combination with other flea and tick control products. Determine when you last treated your pet with a flea and tick product — this includes flea and tick squeeze-ons, shampoos, powders, sprays and collars — and only reapply as directed on the product label. All products will vary. Check the product packaging or call Sergeant's or your veterinarian to ensure the recommended time has passed since the last application before applying the new product.
    • Separate Multiple Pets: Be sure to separate multiple pets after using flea and tick control treatment so that they do not rub off or lick the product off of each other. As with any flea and tick control squeeze-on, getting product in a dog's mouth could cause drooling or foaming.
    • Do Not "Self-Dose": For example, if you have a 20 pound dog, do not use half the dose intended for a 40 pound dog.
