Chemical composition and pharmacological propertiesThe drug contains fipronil, insect growth regulator and excipients (such as glycerol, castor oil etc.). The drug has frank insecticidal acaricidal effect on larval and mature development phases of fleas, sucking lice, lice, ixodic and sarcoptic ticks parasitizing dogs and cats.
After spraying of animal pelage and skin fipronil (a component of the drug) does not absorb into systemic blood, accumulates in epidermis, hair bulbs and sebaceous glands providing long-term contact and intestinal insecticidal acaricidal effect.
The mechanism of fipronil action includes blocking the GABA-dependent receptors of ectoparasites, which impairs the neural impulse transmission causing paralysis and death of insects and ticks.
Insect growth regulator violates chitine (cover tissues) synthesis in parasites reliably breaking their life cycle.
Glycerol and castor oil provide antiseptic effect and regulate metabolic processes in skin and hair. These ingredients promote formation of healthy and thick coat in animal.
