Watch our quick and easy guide to applying a spot on flea and worm treatment to your dog, with Charlotte from our Community Vet Clinic guiding you every step of the way.

When using a spot-on treatment, you want to place the treatment between the shoulder blades, as this is an area out of reach to your dog should they try to lick the treatment off.

To open the pipette, take the lid off and push the tube onto the pipette lid to break the seal.

Carefully part the fur between the shoulder blades so that the product is applied straight onto the skin, in a couple of different spots.

It’s always a good idea to give your dog a treat afterwards so that they continue to associate this treatment with a positive experience.
