How To Use

How to get rid of bugs: 

Give your pet a light spray for a few seconds every day (or twice daily in severe cases), using a sweeping motion from head to tail. (For cats it’s a little different – just dampen a cloth with Bug Off and wipe a small amount through the coat.)

To stop fleas from breeding spray beds and kennels, too. 

Try not to get any Rufus & Coco Bug Off in their eyes, nose or mouth. 
May cause dribbling and unsteady gait in cats. If these occur, wipe off excess product and contact a veterinarian. Not to be used for any purpose, or in any manner, contrary to the product's label unless authorised under appropriate legislation.

Suitable for 12 weeks of age and older.

Ingredients

Pyrethrins - These natural extracts are made from chrysanthemum flowers and affect the nervous system of insects. All pyrethrins are easily hydrolysed and degraded by stomach acids so toxicity following ingestion by pets is very low. Pyrethrins are generally safe for kittens as young as 4-6 weeks of age

Pyrethrin is NOT the same as permethrin. Permethrin is a synthetic pyrethrin and is less easily broken down than pyrethrin. Although its toxicity is relatively low, it is higher than that of pyrethrin. Pyrethrins can be used on cats; permethrins should NOT be used on cats. 

However, there are some unusual cases of pyrethrins causing dribbling and unsteady gait in cats. If these occur, wipe off excess product and contact a veterinarian.

Piperonyl butoxide (PBO) is a pesticide synergist. 

Di-n-propyl isocinchomeronate (DPI) A fly repellent.

N-octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide (OBD) This enhances the repellent effect of the main active ingredient. 6.0g/L di-n-propylisocinchomeronate, 1.5g/L pyrethrins, 3.0g/L noctylbicycloheptene dicarboximide 2.7g/L piperonyl butoxide

"Flies and mozzies drive me barking mad. But regular use of Rufus & Coco’s professionally formulated Bug Off sends the little critters packing from dogs like me, as well as cats, horses, cattle and even pigs. Better than a corked hat, eh?"
