Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Credelio for dogs?

Credelio is an oral flea and tick preventive treatment for dogs. The main active ingredients are lotilaner and milbemycin oxime which, this is made into a chewable tablet that works to kill fleas, ticks and worms by targeting the nervous system of these pests, leading to paralysis and death. When Credelio is ingested, it enters the dog's bloodstream. When fleas or ticks bite the dog and consume the blood, they also ingest the lotilaner. Once inside the flea or tick, the lotilaner affects the pest's nervous system, causing paralysis, which subsequently leads to its death. This ensures that the parasites cannot continue to feed, reproduce, or cause harm to the dog.

Can Credelio Plus treat worms?

Credelio Plus is an expanded version of the original Credelio that combines the flea and tick prevention capabilities of lotilaner with the added benefit of treating certain types of worms, thanks to the inclusion of another active ingredient: milbemycin oxime. Milbemycin oxime is an anthelmintic, which means it's effective against certain types of worms such as; heartworms, hookworms, roundworms and whipworms.

How does Credelio Plus work?

Credelio Plus combines two active ingredients: lotilaner, for fleas and ticks, and milbemycin oxime, for certain worms. When a dog takes Credelio Plus orally, these compounds circulate in the dog's bloodstream. When fleas and ticks bite the dog, they ingest lotilaner, which disrupts their nervous system, causing paralysis and death. Concurrently, milbemycin oxime acts against specific internal worms, interfering with their nervous system, leading to their elimination. In essence, Credelio Plus offers dual protection against both external parasites (fleas and ticks) and certain internal parasites (like heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms).

How long does Credelio Plus work?

Credelio Plus is designed to provide protection for one month (30 days) after administration. This means that when given monthly, Credelio Plus offers continuous protection against the targeted fleas, ticks, and certain worms. However, for the most effective parasite control, it's important to administer Credelio Plus consistently every month, as recommended by your veterinarian.
