Effipro Duo, a spot-on from Virbac, has been reclassified from POM-V to NFA-VPS to allow the product to be sold by SQPs.
The product is designed to kill fleas and prevent flea infestations for up to seven weeks (up to five weeks in cats). Effipro Duo also benefits from the innovative Drop-Lock pipette for ease of delivery.
In a separate change in legal classification Effipro, the award-winning spot-on flea and tick treatment for cats and dogs, is now classified AVM-GSL (having previously been classified as a NFA-VPS product); meaning it is now available to be sold in pet shops and retail outlets that cater for pets.
Approved for use on cats of 1kg and over and dogs 2kg and over, above eight weeks of age, Effipro treats fleas for up to five weeks in cats, and for eight weeks in dogs, and ticks for two weeks on cats and four weeks on dogs.
Both products are available in five presentations, each containing four pipettes, catering for cats and small to extra-large dogs.
Claire Lewis, product manager at Virbac, said: “Both Effipro and Effipro Duo offer trusted flea and tick control and exceptional value for money, so we are delighted to now be able to offer retailers the opportunity to stock these products in time for peak flea season.”
