SENTINEL FLAVOR TABS have no effect on adult fleas, but control flea population by breaking the flea cycle at the egg stage. 

Treatment may begin at any time of the year. In geographic areas where fleas and mosquitos are seasonal, treatment should begin several weeks prior to the expected onset and should continue until the end of the flea and mosquito season. In areas with year-round infestations, treatment should continue the entire year without interruption.

It is important to treat all dogs in the household for fleas. Cats in the same household should be treated with approved products like lufenuron. 

SENTINEL FLAVOR TABS must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month.
