How it works?
Fipronil is an insecticide that blocks pre-and post-synaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. This results in uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and death of insects. Fipronil kills fleas within 24 hours and ticks and lice within 48 hours post-exposure. (S)-methoprene is an insect growth regulator that impairs the development and death of the growing stages of fleas. It is effective in preventing flea larvae and pupae from developing, which prevents contamination of the environment of treated animals with the immature stages of fleas. Both (S)-methoprene and fipronil, together with its major metabolite, are well distributed in the hair coat of a dog within one day after application and stays effective for one full month.
Important Note: Merial is now acquired by Boehringer Ingelheim. So, the manufacturer’s name on product packs may vary according to the available stock.
