    What is Parastar for Dogs?

    Parastar is a one spot, topical flea, tick, mite and chewing lice treatment developed for dogs. The waterproof, topical solution kills adult fleas before they lay eggs, disease-spreading ticks, and chewing lice, and prevents pest infestations. It also controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange. The easy to use applicator is applied to a single spot and provides flea and tick protection for one full month. Gentle enough for use on puppies eight weeks of age or older.
    Find Parastar for Dogs at 1-800-PetMeds
    For: Dogs (8 weeks of age or older)
     
    Benefits:
    Kills fleas, ticks and chewing lice for up to 30 days
    Controls mites that may cause Sarcoptic mange
    Fast-acting, waterproof, topical solution
    Easy to use single spot application
    Approved for dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older

    How it works:
    Parastar contains fipronil, an insecticide that targets the nervous system of pests. The topical treatment is applied to the skin and spreads into the hair follicle, killing adult fleas before they lay eggs, ticks (brown dog ticks, deer ticks, American dog ticks, lone star ticks) that may transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and chewing lice. In addition, it also controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange.

    Cautions:
    Keep out of reach of children and pets.


    More Information:

    Brand Name:
    Parastar™ (fipronil)

    Active Ingredient(s):
    Fipronil (9.7%)

    What is this product used for:
    Parastar contains fipronil, a parasiticide that kills fleas, ticks, and chewing lice by targeting the nervous system, resulting in hyperexcitability and death. It also controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange.

    Availability:
    Parastar is a non-prescription product.

    How this product should be used:
    Weigh your dog to be sure you are applying the correct dose for the weight of your dog. The topical solution should be applied monthly to a single spot between a dog's shoulder blades. Monthly application is recommended for control of flea, tick and chewing lice infestations. Only one applicator per treatment is needed. Repeat application may be made if necessary, but do not apply more often than once every 30 days.

    What are the side effects:
    Sensitivities may rarely occur after using any pesticide product. Dogs may experience some temporary irritation at the site of product application. If signs persist, or become more severe within a few days of application, consult a veterinarian immediately. If your dog has an unusual reaction to the initial application, consult a veterinarian before repeating treatment. Certain medications can interact with pesticides. Consult a veterinarian before using on medicated, debilitated or aged dogs.

    What special precautions are there:
    For external use only. For use on dogs and puppies only. Do not use on puppies less than eight (8) weeks of age. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing.

    How should I store this product:
    Store in original package in a cool, dark place away from children and pets.

    Directions for Parastar for Dogs:

    Remove one tube from the package.
    Hold the tube with the narrow tip up and snip off the end at the notches with scissors.
    Turn the tube over and use the opened tip to part the dog's hair between the shoulder blades.
    Firmly squeeze to apply all of the solution to the dog's skin in a single spot on the back.

    Tip: Apply year round every 30 days for maximum flea and tick protection.

    This is AWESOME! We have 2 German Shepherds and we have given them both Parastar as soon as they were old enough. Even in rural Arkansas where ticks and fleas abound, our dogs stay tick free. We used to get Parastar from our vet, who has since stopped carrying it, and when they sold us the last box they had, I panicked! Nothing has helped our dogs as much as Parastar. They don't even have to wear a flea collar anymore, even at the peak of tick season. Thanks 1-800-Petmeds for saving our dogs from flea-saster! 09/09/2014
    Awesome product! I walk my two dogs in the woods and fields by our home twice a day every day. Parastar is absolutely the best flea and tick prevention product I have ever used! I have never seen a flea on either dog and the rare tick that I find is already dead. 09/01/2014
    Waste of Time & Money! Our vet recommended this product as a new & better alternative to Advantage because it had Tick preventative also. We had just moved to a new home with woods behind it and we'd already seen a few ticks, so we jumped on the vet's recommendation. What a waste of time, money & effort! It would have been more effective to just rinse the fleas off of them with some water...Parastar is USELESS! Used this stuff for 3 mos because they said sometimes it takes more than one application to see full effectiveness. Ha! 3 mos. later and the dogs & cat went from a few fleas to completely infested with fleas & it didn't deter a tick one. Had to wait a month after last application to be able to switch back to advantage (& used Capstar tabs) to help alleviate some of the fleas from the pets quickly. Within a week, we were flea free on Advantage. We have tried to deal with the ticks by yard sprays & Diatomaceous earth application instead (safer/natural alternative) and have had good results there. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PARASTAR if you actually want flea & tick relief/protection for your pets. 04/28/2014
    Never seen a flea or tick We have always looked at this as preventive, not curative. Can't say how it would work where there was already an infestation, but being right next to a park and woods with multiple animals coming through the yard and with many playmates in the neighborhood, we have never even seen a flea or tick. 03/08/2014
    Don't use! The vet applied this to my 2 dogs and it didn't make a difference, after flea dips and mutable baths from myself there are still fleas! Don't use this product!! 09/02/2013

    I put parastar on my dog as directed and it bleached his hair. No other flea treatment I've used has ever done this.

    Answer: 
    We are sorry that the Parastar has bleached your furry pals hair. Every product can have a different reaction and we would suggest to not use this anymore. Please call our customer service department at 1800PETMEDS so we can look at alternative flea medications.

    Answer: 
    Since Advantage Multi has flea medication in it, you would just want to use a tick collar such as : http://www.1800petmeds.com/Preventic+Amitraz+Tick+Collar+for+Dogs-prod3306.html
