How it works?
These chews contain Afoxolaner and Milbemycin Oxime as the active ingredients. Afoxolaner contains a substance that assists in killing fleas and ticks by attacking the nervous system of the parasites. It commences working within a day of administration and kills 100% fleas. While Milbemycin Oxime is a broad spectrum antiparasitic that opens glutamate sensitive chloride channels in roundworms, hookworms and whipworms that leads to hyperpolarisation of their cells which results in blocking of signal transfer eventually killing them. The amalgamation of both these ingredients results in total abolition of fleas, ticks and worms.
