For this reason, if particularly unfavorable conditions occur, it is not possible to completely exclude the transmission of pathogens through these arthropods. The product maintains effectiveness against fleas when treated animals are subjected to occasional immersion in water (for example, swimming, bathing). However, it is advisable not to wash or allow dogs to swim within 48 hours of treatment. Avoid subjecting treated dogs to frequent baths or washes, as these can adversely affect the maintenance of the effectiveness of the product. To reduce reinfestations due to the appearance of new fleas, it is recommended to treat all cohabiting dogs. Other animals living in the same house must also be treated with a suitable product. To further contribute to reducing environmental infestation, it is also recommended to use a targeted environmental treatment against adult fleas and their larval stages.
