Simparica - How it works?
Simparica contains the active ingredient Sarolaner, which inhibits the function of the neurotransmitter gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor and glutamate receptor, and works at the neuromuscular spot in insects. This results in uncontrolled neuromuscular activity, leading to death in insects or acarines such as fleas ad ticks.
My dog ate the tablet with no problem and he can be fussy about his treats. So far, no more ticks.
Flea collars didn’t work on my two bulloxers...I tried a vet recommended product that caused side effects on one of my pups. I tried Simparica recommended by another vet and they stopped scratching quickly and has worked great.
Getting a pill down my cat is no easy task. But this chewable approach provides an easy solution that I and my cat appreciate.
