Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I live out in the country on 24 acres and I’ve only seen 3 fleas on my dogs. I’ve used this product for several years and love it. I have 5 Boston Terriers and 2 schnauzers that live inside with us. After playing outside all day they never come in with fleas or ticks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly!! I have 4 dogs on this varying in size. A 9lb dachshund, 16lb dachshund, 45lb boxer/mix, and a 163lb english mastiff. They all take different weight size pills and we have not seen a single flea at all!! All of my babies have been on this for about a year, and it's been wonderful! We have a lot of land, and a lot of trees and grass, which usually means a bunch of ticks! Last year almost every week we were picking ticks off the dogs. But this summer since they've all been on Simparica we haven't seen a single tick! I'm so glad my vet recommended this product! It's not insanely expensive and it works wonders!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always Worked for Me I have used this in the past and it worked great. I have 4 dogs and my 2 large white dogs have some fleas and my 2 black dogs do not have any, which is odd. I cannot use topicals because my dogs all have sensitive skin and it causes them irritation, I wish that I could as that is the only way to actually repel the fleas from jumping on them due to the topical getting into the dog's oil glands. I have read a lot of negative comments on here from people who are upset that they still have flea problems....unless you treat your yard and house if you already have a problem, the Simparica is not going to help due to the fact that it is not a repellent, you would need to use a topical for that. Treat your yard with Diatomaceous Earth, will kill fleas (all life cycles) from the yard and not hurt your animals or children, treat your house with a spray if you have hard floors, or if you have carpeting you can use the Diatomaceous Earth in the carpet let it soak in the carpet for a few hours then vacuum it up.....not harmful to humans or animals at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as it should I've been using this with my 5 year old black lab mix for about a year now. She thinks it's a treat and gobbles it right down. Even when my 2 cats had fleas when their flea prevention stopped working in a new climate, she remained flea free! No side effects noticed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great for my tiny dogs I have a 4lb teacup chihuahua and a 6lb chihuahua (who uses the next dosage up- the people box) and it works great for them. No side effects. The first time I used this my teacup chihuahua was infested with fleas from staying the night at a nasty vets office so I bought this since it was the only thing I could find safe for a dog his size. Literally within minutes of him taking this the fleas started dying. I've also noticed it makes their blood taste bad so fleas and ticks usually jump off before they die. My dogs love the way these pills taste and they take them like they're treats. This website has amazing customer service and I would recommend buying from them. If you have any issues they go above and beyond to correct them. Very impressed with the service they've provided!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for 2 years and NO Fleas My rescue has been on this for 2 years now, I’ve never found a flea on him. It works really well! I won’t try anything else because it works for us and it’s cheaper here than from our vets office :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems! Good to go. I questioned my vet a lot about this after seeing all these terrible reviews online. Would ask the vet, would research on the web, would come back to the vet again... ultimately I felt safe after my vet said she uses the same meds on both her dogs, and made a good point: "If someone has a good experience with the meds, they're probably not going to take the time to write a GOOD review online. Only people wanting to complain". So true. That's why I wanted to make sure I came back on here to say nothing has gone wrong. Dog's health is totally fine, no side effects AT ALL, and my dog looks forward to the taste of the pill once a month. No hassle and no fleas either (dog didn't have any to start with, preventative measure for a new 18 month pup). My advice: talk to your vet until you're comfortable! If you're not, just don't buy. But you won't have a reason not to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing that worked! My dogs have never had fleas but we’re being eaten alive by ticks! I asked my vet for a recommendation because we had tried everything available OTC and NOTHING stopped the ticks. THIS WORKED! I gave it to them after dinner and checked them the next morning and couldn’t find a live tick on them.

Does this product include a heartworm preventative too? Or is it just for fleas?

I gave my dog her dose of Simparica yesterday but it is almost time for her Trifexis (heart worm preventative BUT ALSO HAS INGREDIENT FOR FLEAS & TICKS!) I don't know whether to give the trifexis now! CAN you help

Asked by: Pamela
You should not use both Simparica and Trifexis as your dog would be double-dosing on flea medication. I recommend that you get another product that just does heartworms, such as HeartGard Plus, Interceptor or Milbeguard, to use with the Simparica, or stop the Simparica and just use Trifexis.

Our three small dogs already get a yearly shot for heart worm. Do you still offer this without the heart worm medication as our vet said it would be too much medication for them. 

Asked by: Flygirl62
Simparica only treats for fleas and ticks, not for heartworms. There is another, new product called Simparia Trio that also includes heartworm prevention, so don't buy that one.

What is Simparica?

Simparica is a fast-acting oral flea and tick preventative that begins killing fleas and ticks within hours of administration and remains effective for one month to prevent re-infestations. It is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), and the treatment and control of tick infestations [Amblyomma americanum (Lone Star tick), Amblyomma maculatum (Gulf Coast tick), Dermacentor variabilis (American dog tick), Ixodes scapularis (deer tick/black-legged tick), and Rhipicephalus sanguineus (brown dog tick)]. Simparica begins to kill adult fleas within 3 hours and ticks within 8 hours of administration. Treatment with Simparica may begin at any time of the year and is safe to use year-round without interruption. Simparica is given monthly and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (6+ months of age, weighing 2.8+ lbs)

Benefits:

  • Each tablet provides a full month of protection against fleas and ticks
  • Tasty, liver-flavored chewable tablet is easy to administer
  • Chewable tablets can be given directly to your dog or broken up and mixed with food
  • Available in six weight categories: 2.8-5.5 lbs, 5.6-11 lbs, 11.1-22.0 lbs, 22.1-40 lbs, 44.1-88.0 lbs and 88.1-132 lbs

How does Simparica work?

Simparica contains the active ingredient sarolaner, which inhibits the function of the neurotransmitter gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor and glutamate receptor, and works at the neuromuscular junction in insects. This results in uncontrolled neuromuscular activity leading to death in insects or acarines. Simparica is administered once a month directly by mouth or can be crumbled and mixed with food. To minimize the likelihood of flea re-infestation, it is important to treat all dogs and cats within a household with an approved flea control product.

Cautions:

Not for use in humans. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children and pets. For use in dogs only. Do not use Simparica in cats. Simparica should not be used in dogs less than 6 months of age weighing less than 2.8 lbs. The safe use of Simparica has not been evaluated in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs.

For flea treatment and prevention: Treatment may begin at any time of the year. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with Simparica can continue the entire year without interruption. To minimize the likelihood of flea re-infestation, it is important to treat all dogs and cats within a household with an approved flea control product.

For tick treatment and control: Treatment with Simparica can begin at any time of the year.

Simparica Directions:

  • Administer one Simparica chewable once every month.
  • Simparica may be offered by hand or broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole.

  • Observe your dog for a few minutes after administration to ensure that no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.
