A New Standard in the Fight Against Ticks That May Carry Disease
The newest addition to the FRONTLINE family of flea and tick control products kills ticks within 18 hours and detaches ticks -- Merial Introduces CERTIFECT. FOR USE ON DOGS ONLY
Ticks are growing in number and are being found in new areas, putting the family dog at increased risk for infestations. As a result, dogs are also at increased risk of tick-borne diseases, which have now been found in most U.S. states. Cases of Lyme disease and anaplasmosis in pets more than doubled from 2009 to 2010 – disturbing evidence that ticks are an expanding threat.
To address this issue, the makers of No. 1 veterinarian-recommended flea and tick control product FRONTLINE Plus have introduced CERTIFECT, an advanced topical solution that provides proven flea protection with added tick-killing power. CERTIFECT STARTS KILLING TICK AS SOON AS 6 HRS AFTER APPLICATION BUT KILLS ALL ticks in 18 hours, whereas the current standard for tick-killing efficacy is 24-48 hours.
It is also the only topical product that detaches ticks. Just like FRONTLINE Plus, CERTIFECT destroys the flea life cycle, giving dog owners, with the help of their veterinarians, a new solution in the fight against these pests.
Why CERTIFECT for Dogs?
CERTIFECT is made for all dogs at risk for tick exposure that still need proven flea control. It uses a small amount of amitraz to potentiate the tick-killing power of fipronil, which along with (S)-methoprene, are the active ingredients in FRONTLINE Plus. Amitraz and fipronil act together against ticks’ nervous systems to kill more ticks and increase the speed of kill compared to equivalent concentrations of fipronil alone.
CERTIFECT is a topical formulation applied to two places on a dog’s neck: at the base of the skull and between the shoulder blades where the dog cannot lick once a month just like Frontline. CERTIFECT has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for puppies older than eight weeks and greater than or equal to five pounds.
CERTIFECT should not be used on cats. In studies, no adverse effects were noted on cats in homes with treated dogs.
