This powerful flea and tick oral treatment contain a new molecule – afoxolaner that has been formulated for veterinary use in dogs. During feeding on dog’s blood, fleas, and ticks ingest the ingredient afoxolaner, which causes hyperexcitation and subsequent death of these parasites. This one chew, when given monthly, provides full protection against fleas and ticks, all year round.Manufacturer
