Fido’s Rinse Concentrate is a low odour water based formulation for flea and tick control which contains the natural insecticide pyrethrin.



It can be poured diluted onto the coat after shampooing with any of the Fido’s shampoos, and is used widely in the hydrobath.

Importantly it contains no alcohol or petroleum solvents.

10g/L Pyrethrins, 18g/L Piperonyl butoxide, 30g/L N-Octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide (MGK 264).

The natural pyrethrins, which have no anticholinesterase activity, act in insects by slowly closing the sodium channel activation gate causing hyperexcitation followed by convulsion and death. They are synergised by Piperonyl butoxide, which has a minor repellant action in its own right. N-Octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide (MGK 264) is an insecticide synergist and it has repellant properties.

Fleas (Ctenocephalides spp) and lice (Trichodectes canis and Heterodoxus spp), ticks including the paralysis tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Ixodes holocyclus) and prevents attachment for up to 3 days on dogs and cats. Controls lice on ornamental cage birds.
For use in hydrobaths. Because of the almost complete absence of organic solvents this product will not damage the pump mechanism of hydrobaths; the vapour is considerably less toxic to the operator than conventional organophosphates.

In paralysis tick areas, inspect dogs and cats daily.

Do not contaminate food and water containers. Poisonous to fish and crustaceans, do not contaminate pond, streams and aquaria.

Wash hands after use. Avoid contact with the skin and eyes and avoid inhaling spray mist.

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre.

Dilute before use. Make up freshly before use.
For dogs, cats, puppies and kittens: Mix 8mL of concentrate with 800mL of warm water (40mL to 4L) and dip, swab, sponge or spray dog or cat with this solution until thoroughly soaked. Avoid contact with pets eyes. Allow animal to dry naturally. Puppies and kittens should be towelled dry to prevent chilling. For best results do not rinse off. The suggested treatment for continuous paralysis tick control is to rinse the animal according to label direction once every 3 days.

Zone control: To aid the control of flea infestations, bedding should be changed or sprayed with this product when diluted and allowed to dry. Areas frequented by the pet should also be treated with this product (when diluted) when necessary.

For ornamental cage birds: Mix 2mL of concentrate with 200mL water and use this solution in a clean pump spray. Adjust spray to fine, and spray bird lightly all over ruffling the feathers to allow spray to penetrate to skin. Avoid contact with pets eye.
