Credelio Gato 12mg 0.5-2Kg 6 tablets
Indicated for the treatment of flea and tick infestations in cats.
Credelio is a veterinary medicine with immediate and persistent activity in the elimination of fleas (Ctenocephalides felis and C. canis) and ticks (Ixodes ricinus) for 1 month.
Fleas and ticks must be attached to the host and start feeding in order to be exposed to the active substance. The veterinary medicinal product can be used as part of the treatment strategy for flea allergic dermatitis (DAPP).
Active substance (s): Lotilaner
Lotilaner is a potent inhibitor of chlorine channels activated by gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), resulting in rapid elimination of ticks and fleas.
For fleas, onset of efficacy occurs within 12 hours after fixation, and for one month after administration of the veterinary medicinal product. Fleas that are in the animal before administration are eliminated in 8 hours.
For ticks, the onset of efficacy occurs within 24 hours after fixation, and for one month after administration of the veterinary medicinal product. Ticks that are in the animal before administration are eliminated in 18 hours.
The veterinary medicine removes existing and newly hatched fleas in cats before they can lay eggs. Thus, the veterinary medicine interrupts the flea's life cycle and avoids environmental contamination by fleas in the areas to which the cat has access.
