How it Works:
Parastar Plus contains two fast-acting insecticides, fipronil and cyphenothrin, which start to kill fleas and ticks within 1 hour. The topical treatment is applied to the skin and spreads into the hair follicle, killing adult fleas before they lay eggs, ticks (brown dog tick, deer tick, American dog tick and lone star tick) that may transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and chewing lice for one month. In addition, it also controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange.
Keep out of reach of children and pets. Consult a veterinarian before using on medicated, debilitated or aged dogs. Do not use on cats.
