Fleas are a perennial problem in pets. Proper sanitary measures can reduce the prevalence of flea infestation, but these annoying pests manage to recur in spite of precautions. Flea eggs and larvae are more of a problem than adult fleas. It needs a lethal remedy to fight this menace and various topical spot-on solutions available are just the right thing to do.
Activyl for Dogs is one such product from Merck that addresses the flea problem. A one-time application every month provides complete protection against adult fleas, its larvae and eggs, effectively preventing flea reinfestations.
Activyl - How it works?
The active ingredient Indoxacarb in Activyl acts using a process that reacts with flea’s own enzymes. Slowly but gradually the solution spreads through the pet’s skin. As soon as the flea bites the dog, it absorbs Indoxacarb, which when reaching the flea’s gut, changes the enzymes. This is what is called bioactivation. The flea dies due to the paralyzing effect of the ingredient.
I have a 8 years old Gpsy who has picked up fleas. I used this product to see will it work on him or not. I was amazed that only after a single application of Activyl there was not a single flea alive in two days time, it has worked perfectly. I am satisfied to see that my pooch is in good health and free from fleas.
I am buying this product from Bestvetcare since last 6 months to prevent flea infestation. I am quite satisfied with the results as my doggy is totally free from fleas.
Works very well on preventing fleas and getting rid of them. I am using this on my dog since last year and find it to be very effective. I would surely recommend this product.
