Sentinel: Prevents Heartworm, Controls Fleas and More
It is important to prevent heartworm disease in your dog, and also to treat other infestations such as fleas and intestinal parasites. Did you know you can do all of this with one single monthly tablet of Sentinel? Sentinel is a chewable tablet that protects your dog against the most important parasites: heartworm, fleas, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm.
How Does Sentinel Control Fleas?
Sentinel treats fleas on dogs by killing flea eggs and larvae before they become adults. One of the ingredients in Sentinel is lufenuron, which is an insect development inhibitor. This ingredient in Sentinel breaks the flea life cycle by preventing flea eggs from hatching, thereby breaking the flea life-cycle. Because Sentinel does not kill adult fleas, you can use Sentinel along with Capstar, which kills adult fleas.
How Does Sentinel Treat Other Parasites?
The other active ingredient in Sentinel is milebemycin oxime. This ingredient in Sentinel controls heartworm by interfering with the nerve signal transmissions of the heartworm larvae, killing the microfilaria before they can develop into adult heartworms. Sentinel also treats and controls roundworms, treats and controls whipworms, and also controls hookworms.
What Else Should I Know About Sentinel?
Sentinel can be given to dogs or puppies four weeks of age and older and weighing over two pounds. Select the correct dose of Sentinel based upon your dog’s weight, and give one full tablet of Sentinel to your dog once every month. For proper drug absorption, be sure to give Sentinel tablets to your dog on a full stomach, or give a full meal immediately after your dog has taken a Sentinel tablet.
