Fleas are the most common external parasite found on cats and dogs, and can irritate your pet with constant itching and scratching, hair loss, or flea allergy dermatitis.6 A small flea problem left untreated can easily become an issue for the entire home.
Activyl is efficient for your pet and can be used safely. It stops fleas from biting to give your pet quick relief, and breaks the flea life cycle to prevent new fleas from developing. It is quick-drying, fragrance-free and waterproof even after bathing. Ask your veterinarian for more information.

Activyl for Dogs and Activyl for Cats are spot-on products that contain indoxacarb and a mode of action that uses enzymes inside the flea to activate serious flea-killing power. They are applied to a small area of skin but soon spread. Fleas don’t have to bite for Activyl to work; simply coming into contact with the skin is enough.
By stopping flea eggs and larvae, in addition to killing adult fleas, Activyl breaks the life cycle. This is effective at both killing and preventing infestations in the home.3,4
Activyl® spreads through your pet's skin and coat.
When a flea lands, it takes up Activyl.
Enzymes inside the flea change Activyl into its fully active form.
The flea is soon unable to feed, becomes paralyzed and dies (sometimes fleas move to the coat of your pet, making them more visible before death.)
Choose a room in your house where your pet feels comfortable and relaxed, with a surface that's easy to clean in case of spillage.
Open one foil pouch and remove applicator. Hold the applicator in an upright position pointing away from your face. Snap the tip open by folding it back on itself.

Do not reuse the Activyl container. Place in trash or offer for recycling if available. If partly filled: call your local solid waste agency for disposal instructions. Never place unused products down any indoor or outdoor drain.
Activyl has been tested to make sure it is not easily rinsed or washed off. However, Activyl must first be allowed to spread and dry on the skin. According to veterinary industry standards, you should not wash your pets or allow them to swim for 24 to 48 hours after application.
