Chemical composition and pharmacological properties

The drug contains fipronil, diflubenzuron (insect growth regulator) and excipients including citronella essential oil. The drug has frank insecticidal acaricidal effect on larval and mature development phases of fleas, sucking lice, lice, ixodic and sarcoptic ticks, as well as repellent effect.
After dermal drug application fipronil and diflubenzuron (components of the drug) slightly absorb into systemic blood, accumulate in epidermis, hair bulbs and sebaceous glands providing long-term contact and intestinal insecticidal acaricidal effect.
The mechanism of fipronil action includes impairment of the neural impulse transmission causing paralysis and death of insects and ticks.
Insect growth regulator violates chitine synthesis in parasites breaking their life cycle.
