Simparica for Dogs 5.6-11 lbs

Simparica (sarolaner) is an effective means of combating fleas and ticks as well as preventing the diseases spread by those pesky invertebrates. When this medication is applied, it acts quickly, killing fleas within a three-hour time frame and effectively doing away with ticks within an eight-hour time frame. This is especially handy if you live near a wooded area where fleas and ticks are more prevalent. With such a fast-acting product, you can dispose of the pests and everything that comes with them in a matter of hours! So if you are looking for a fast-acting and ideal way of relieving a current infestation in your dog's condition, this is the product to turn to.

Once the tablet has been ingested, Simparica enacts a prevention period lasting a full 35 days! Its period of effectiveness is even longer than most other flea and tick medications. So your dog experiences their needed monthly pest prevention, plus a little more! Those last five days will be five more days without irritating itches and scratches. What's more, it is a consistently effective medication which does not diminish its potency as it reaches the end of the 35-day span.

Prescription items are NON-RETURNABLE and NON-REFUNDABLE.

Please note product may arrive in a Hardy Paw Pharmacy vial, manufacturer packaging is shown for reference.
