You are more apt to encounter fleas in warm, humid areas. However, because weather patterns are always variable and unpredictable, it is important to use PROGRAM Flavor Tabs all year-round. Give PROGRAM Flavor Tabs oral flea control once a month. Always give PROGRAM with a meal to ensure proper absorption. Make sure all pets in your home are protected against fleas.
PROGRAM Suspension is available in two sizes of packs for oral administration to cats and kittens according to their weight (see Dosage section). The active ingredient of PROGRAM Suspension is lufenuron, a benzoylphenylurea derivative with the following chemical composition: N-[2,5-dichloro-4- (1,1,2,3,3,3,-hexafluoropropoxy)-phenylaminocarbonyl]-2,6-difluorobenzamide. Benzoylphenylurea compounds, including lufenuron, are classified as insect development inhibitors (IDIs).
As an insect development inhibitor, PROGRAM does not kill adult fleas, but effectively and safely controls flea populations on your pet through a mode of action which breaks the flea's life cycle at the egg stage.
