We are very excited to be bringing two new flea/tick products, Simparica and Catego, to our shelves at Pet Care Center! These affordable and effective preventatives will keep flea and tick problems away for your dogs and cats.
Simparica is a great tasting chewable tablet given orally once a month to dogs 6 months and older. It travels in your dog’s blood to safely deliver persistent continuous protection against fleas and ticks from day 1 to day 35. It starts killing fleas within 3 hours and keeps going strong for 35 days without losing effectiveness at the end of the month. Simparica provides rapid relief for pets with existing flea infestations. Even dogs with flea allergies have shown improvement with Simparica. Simparica also prevents and controls home infestations, killing fleas before they can lay eggs. In flea infested homes where Simparica is administered on a monthly basis for 3 months, a 95.6 % reduction in the flea population was seen in 14 days and reached 100% elimination by day 60.
Simparica starts killing ticks within 8 hours and keeps going strong for 35 days without losing effectiveness at the end of the month. This is important to help reduce the risk of transmission of potentially life-threatening tick-borne diseases.
For our feline patients, we are now carrying Catego on our shelves! This is a topical product that provides protection against fleas, ticks and lice for a full month. Catego was designed specifically for cats and only cats. It comes in one low-volume formulation for all size cats weighing over 1.5 pounds and is approved in felines over 8 weeks of age. Catego works fast and kills 100 % of fleas within 6 hours (97% in 3 hours).
