SENTINEL Flavor Tabs are given orally, once a month, at the recommended minimum dosage of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) milbemycin oxime and 4.55 mg/lb (10 mg/kg) lufenuron.
TO ENSURE ADEQUATE ABSORPTION, ALWAYS ADMINISTER SENTINEL Flavor Tabs TO DOGS IMMEDIATELY AFTER OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH A NORMAL MEAL.
SENTINEL Flavor Tabs are palatable and most dogs will consume the tablet when offered by the owner. As an alternative to direct dosing, the tablets can be hidden in food. Be certain the dog consumes the entire tablet or tablets. Administer SENTINEL Flavor Tabs to dogs, immediately after or in conjunction with a normal meal. Food is essential for adequate absorption of lufenuron. Watch the dog closely following administration to be sure the entire dose has been consumed. If it is not entirely consumed, redose with the full recommended dose as soon as possible.
SENTINEL Flavor Tabs must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Treatment with SENTINEL Flavor Tabs may begin at any time of year. In geographic areas where mosquitoes and fleas are seasonal, the treatment schedule should begin one month prior to the expected onset and should continue until the end of “mosquito and flea season.” In areas with year-round infestations, treatment should continue through the entire year without interruption.
Step 1: Control
Give SENTINEL Flavor Tabs once per month to prevent and control flea populations. SENTINEL Flavor Tabs contain lufenuron. Lufenuron controls flea populations by preventing the development of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. If a dog currently has a flea infestation, more rapid relief can be accomplished by adding CAPSTAR to the treatment as follows.
If your pet currently has a flea infestation, add CAPSTAR Tablets to kill adult fleas. CAPSTAR Tablets contain nitenpyram and are effective for the treatment of flea infestations. Nitenpyram starts killing adult fleas within 30 minutes of administration.
- Administer CAPSTAR Tablets once per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.
- For a severe flea infestation, administer CAPSTAR Tablets twice per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.
- Additional CAPSTAR Tablets may be administered as needed to kill the occasional adult flea picked up from infested environments.
- It is important to treat all cats and dogs in the household. All cats should be treated with approved products like lufenuron in combination with nitenpyram as needed. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
The combination of SENTINEL Flavor Tabs and CAPSTAR Tablets should be administered according to the following schedule. Weigh your dog prior to administration to ensure proper dosage. Do not administer to dogs under 2 pounds or less than 4 weeks of age.
Administer with a normal meal.
