How does Credelio Flea & Tick Chewable Tablets for Dogs & Puppies work?
The active ingredient in Credelio (known as Lotilaner) is an ectoparasiticide that works through rendering the skin of an ectoparasite’s host uninhabitable. Ectoparasites are parasitic insects and Acari (mites/ticks) that live on the outside of their host, generally on the skin. Credelio deals with their infestation by stopping the parasites’ ability to transfer GABA chloride across cell membranes. Because these chemicals are essential to the maintenance of neuromuscular homeostasis, their inhibition results in the parasites’ death, leaving your dog happy and flea/tick free. Note* this medication is selectivly toxic, and may affect mammals in different ways.
