What is the difference between this product and oral flea products?
This product is applied to your pet topically and kills fleas through contact with the product on your pet’s skin, so fleas don’t have to bite to die. With oral flea medications, fleas must bite your furry family member and be exposed to the medication in the pet before the fleas are killed.

How do these products spread over a pet’s body? How long does this take?
This product is topical only and is dispersed over your furry family member’s body by the natural oils on their skin and attaches to the hair follicle. This process can take up to 24 hours.

How does this product work?
This product combines two active ingredients:

Etofenprox is a synthetic pyrethroid-like substance that attacks flea and ticks’ nervous systems-paralyzing and killing them
Pyriproxyfen is an insect growth regulator (IGR) that prevents flea eggs and larvae from maturing to adults
