Parastar Plus for Dogs is a fast-acting and long-lasting topical treatment that kills fleas, ticks, and chewing lice while controlling mites! This medication has a broad-spectrum formula that uses a combination of cyphenothrin and fipronil to quickly and effectively start killing ticks within an hour. Once applied to the skin, it begins to spread through your pup’s oil glands, making its way throughout their entire body to kill pests hiding in every nook and cranny of your pet’s fur.
You may be familiar with fipronil through the popular top sellers like Frontline Plus. Fipronil is a neurotoxin that targets the nervous system of insects. This substance causes paralysis, spasms and eventually death in pests that infest your pet. It sounds frightening but don’t worry; only insects should fear fipronil. Since this toxin likes to bind to insect nerve receptors, it is safe for mammals including us, our children and our pets.
Cyphenothrin is a broad-spectrum insecticide that works well against almost all insects including ticks and mites and kills them on contact. This substance supports the effects of fipronil to kill pests infesting your furry friend while remaining safe to us and our dogs. Cyphenothrin is poorly absorbed through the skin, and even when ingested, it does not absorb well into the blood stream either. The bits that are absorbed into your dog’s body are often found to be excreted through the urine since it quickly metabolizes in the liver. Unfortunately, felines lack the enzymes to break down this chemical and thus it is deadly to cats.
Killing fleas, ticks and chewing lice before they can take a bite out of your pup is essential in keeping them safe from transmitted diseases. Ticks are known to transmit Lyme disease through their bites. Controlling mites with Parastar Plus also prevents sarcoptic mange, which bring incredible discomfort for our canines. Keep your pup protected and itch-free with Parastar Plus for Dogs!
