For full efficacy against ticks and fleas, instruct pet owners to always give their dog Credelio with food or within 30 minutes of a meal. The presence of food ensures that peak blood levels and exposures are achieved, which is necessary for initial and ongoing efficacy.

Credelio should be administered once a month, every month, to dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older and 4.4 pounds or greater to provide year-round protection.

Targeted Power

Credelio’s active ingredient, lotilaner, is a member of the isoxazoline family, a novel class of parasiticides that targets nerve receptors of ticks and fleas for powerful protection.²
