General note on chemicals: I do not endorse or advise on chemical treatments, as I am not qualified to do so and there may be dangers beyond my control. New products may be introduced or existing ones withdrawn, so it is difficult to keep up with current information on a website such as this. As many of the chemical pages were generated by Dave Cushman, I am leaving the content mainly as left by Dave for historical purposes only, which may mean information is out of date and unreliable. The user should seek guidance from other sources and satisfy themselves regarding safety and legality. Roger Patterson.

The white panel below is a facsimile of the leaflet produced by the manufacturers, although written in English, some of the translation is poor, I have left spelling and grammar exactly as the original and have made comments and my ideas of what it should say in green text.

Although this product is available with a price tag that is less than the Apistan strips available in USA and Europe, it cannot be considered equivalent... The dose is different and it is thought that the release mechanism or release rate may be different.

I neither endorse nor condemn this product. The information as published here is a matter of public record. The information itself, is placed here for the education of those that wish to read it. BEFORE you obtain or use the material concerned please ascertain the legality of doing so in your location as the product may or may not be approved or licenced in your geographic State or Country.
