Product Detail: Dermcare Permoxin Insecticidal Spray and Rinse Concentrate for Dogs
Permoxin Insecicidal Spray and Rinse concentrate is used to kill and repel fleas and ticks on dogs. It can be applied to dogs as a spray or as the final rinse after a bath. The rinse, when used as directed will prevent tick attachment and control adult fleas. It also acts as a repellent to deter ticks from the dog, which can also assist in preventing insect bite allergies. The product binds to the hair coat of clean hair to prolong its action. Peak activity should be maintained by top up weekly rinses.

It should not be applied to puppies less than 3 months old.
Avoid contact with the dog’s mouth and eyes.
The product may be mixed with methylated spirits for rapid drying when applied as a spray, but this should not be used on broken skin. The spray mixed with water is stable for up to 3 months.
Directions for use: Dilute product at rate of 10mL/400mL water, using the self-measuring chamber. If using as a rinse, apply after shampooing and rinsing; the product may be applied to a wet or dry coat. A sponge can be used to assist application: foaming does not affect efficacy. Ensure the animal is wet to skin level over the entire coat. For flea and tick control, the product should be applied as a rinse every 7 days. If using as a spray, ensure the entire animal is covered (except eyes and mouth) and allow to dry (the dilution can be performed with methylated spirits for quick drying). The spray bottle should be held upright, approx 20cm from the animal and the coat ruffled while applying to ensure adequate penetration. For insect bite allergy, the product may be sprayed on as required, as frequently as once daily for up to 14 days. In tick areas, it is recommended that animals are also inspected regularly for ticks.
