Chemical composition and pharmacological propertiesThe drug contains fipronil, diphenylhydramine, diflubenzuron and excipients. It has significant acaricidal effect on larval and mature phases of sarcoptic and demodectic ticks (including Sarcoptes canis, Otodectes cynotis, Notoedres cati и Demodex canis) parasitizing dogs and cats.
After dermal drug application fipronil (component of the drug) slightly absorbs into systemic blood, accumulates in epidermis, hair bulbs and sebaceous glands providing long-term acaricidal effect on all tick development stages.
The mechanism of fipronil action (a component of the drug) includes blocking the GABA-dependent receptors of ectoparasites, which impairs the neural impulse transmission causing paralysis and death of ticks.
Diflubenzuron (insect growth regulator) causes insect death by means of inhibiting the chitine synthesis resulting in termination of the population growth and sustaining.
Diphenylhydramine (Н1 histamine-antagonist) has antihistaminic, cholinolytic, anti-inflammatory and local anesthetic effect.
Excipients provide fipronil penetration in parasite location areas, reduce inflammatory processes and accelerate tissue healing.
