SentryPro XFT is an improved topical flea and tick treatment formula for your dogs. Once applied to the skin, the medication will begin to spread throughout your pet’s body. Fleas will begin to be killed in as little as 1 hour of application, and ticks will be dead in as little as 3 hours! With the long-lasting waterproof formula, you can give your furry friend a bath after 24 hours of application and it will still last for up to 9 weeks of protection.
By using a combination of an insecticide and insect growth regulator, this medication works to eliminate all flea life stages to prevent reinfestation. The insecticide kills adult fleas and ticks while the growth regulator prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into adults. We all know how annoying and gross it is to have to detach ticks from our pets. Fortunately, SentryPro works to both kill and detach any ticks burrowing inside your animal companion to provide a convenient, hassle-free treatment!
Depending on the size of your dog, the insecticide used may differ. For smaller sized dogs, etofenprox is used as it is safer for them. For larger and medium sized dogs, cyphenothrin is used. These substances essentially work the same way. They are synthetic pyrethroids which attack the insects’ central nervous systems. This causes paralysis in the pesky bugs and then eventually death!
These insecticides are paired with the insect growth regulator, pyriproxyfen. This pesticide works by imitating insect hormones to prevent their growth. Being unable to grow, the young flea eggs and larvae have no choice but to fall to their demise. By eliminating both adult fleas and their offspring, you will break the flea lifecycle to prevent any reinfestation!
The active ingredients may sound intimidating, but they have low levels of toxicity in mammals. This is because they specifically target the design of insect body systems. However, with all pesticides, please consult your veterinarian and/or follow the correct dosage as an overdose of anything can be lethal!
