Works for my four dogs
I've used Simparica on my two German Shepherds and two Boston Terriers for about 2 years now. Also used it on two GSDs and a Lab who sadly passed last year. No side effects whatsoever. It was recommended to me by my vet as a replacement for Bravecto, as a replacement for Bravecto, which the pups were on, but she has shied away from because of medical concerns. I trust her judgment because she is well read, and keeps up on what's happening via vet journals and her own research. Everyone's situation and location is different, as well as the health of their dogs. My vet does not recommend any medication unless she reviews the medical history as well as does an exam on the pups.

Works Great!
I originally picked out Simparica because I wanted a simple flea and tick preventative chewable tablet (not topical because I hate how messy those are) for a good price. We've used this on two of our dogs for a year now and the results are wonderful! No fleas or ticks!

Seems to have worked for a year
I’ve been buying this Simpirica product for over a year for our shepherd and I’ve never seen any flea or ticks (knock on wood) so I’m very pleased with this product. The price is also great and our dog eats it with no problem! She actually loves to eat. I’ve been satisfied, so I figured I’d leave a review!

BEWARE SCARY SIDE EFFECTS
Our Jasper had a recommendation by the vet to take this. A few hours after taking this medication he started sounding as if he had a hairball stuck in his throat. It continued non stop for several hours. Jasper is super particular and doesn’t even eat certain dog treats due to the texture so I knew it wasn’t something he mistakenly ate. We continue observing him for a few more hours reaching his vet and online 24/7 vet chat. Eventually we discovered this was the only thing new to his daily intake of things and that it was caused the weird noises coming from his throat. I almost spent 300.00 going to the vet emergency room. I want to warn every pet parent to make sure with the vet the side effects and keep an eye on your pet for the first two days after taking this. They should really pull this off the market . 1800 pet meds was super amazing with their response but this product should be pulled off the market. I saw many other worse side effects than my Jasper. Day 2 Jasper is doing better but it’s super scary having to deal with this.

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!!

QUESTION
What is the content of Simparica compared to Nexgard?
ANSWERS (1)
The ingredient in Simparica is Sarolaner. Simparica 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)] The ingredient in Nexgard is Afoxolaner. NexGard Chewables keep your pet protected from adult fleas by killing them before they have a chance to lay eggs, which reduces the possibility of a flea infestation. Plus, they kill 3 types of ticks (the American dog tick, the black-legged (Deer) tick and the Lone Star tick), which decreases the risk of your pet developing a deadly tick-borne disease.

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.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Simparica to my pet?

How Simparica should be given?

Simparica should be administered orally, once every month, at the minimum dosage of 0.91 mg/lb (2 mg/kg) sarolaner.

Care should be taken that your dog consumes the complete dose, and treated pets should be observed for a few minutes to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or refused.

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.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Simparica?

If a dose is missed, administer Simparica and resume a monthly dosing schedule.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Simparica?

Contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid while giving Simparica to my pet?

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.
  • Simparica chewables should be administered in a manner that encourages your dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Care should be taken to be sure that your dog consumes the complete dose.
  • 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.

Works for my four dogs
I've used Simparica on my two German Shepherds and two Boston Terriers for about 2 years now. Also used it on two GSDs and a Lab who sadly passed last year. No side effects whatsoever. It was recommended to me by my vet as a replacement for Bravecto, as a replacement for Bravecto, which the pups were on, but she has shied away from because of medical concerns. I trust her judgment because she is well read, and keeps up on what's happening via vet journals and her own research. Everyone's situation and location is different, as well as the health of their dogs. My vet does not recommend any medication unless she reviews the medical history as well as does an exam on the pups.

I’ve been buying this Simpirica product for over a year for our shepherd and I’ve never seen any flea or ticks (knock on wood) so I’m very pleased with this product. The price is also great and our dog eats it with no problem! She actually loves to eat. I’ve been satisfied, so I figured I’d leave a review!

Our Jasper had a recommendation by the vet to take this. A few hours after taking this medication he started sounding as if he had a hairball stuck in his throat. It continued non stop for several hours. Jasper is super particular and doesn’t even eat certain dog treats due to the texture so I knew it wasn’t something he mistakenly ate. We continue observing him for a few more hours reaching his vet and online 24/7 vet chat. Eventually we discovered this was the only thing new to his daily intake of things and that it was caused the weird noises coming from his throat. I almost spent 300.00 going to the vet emergency room. I want to warn every pet parent to make sure with the vet the side effects and keep an eye on your pet for the first two days after taking this. They should really pull this off the market . 1800 pet meds was super amazing with their response but this product should be pulled off the market. I saw many other worse side effects than my Jasper. Day 2 Jasper is doing better but it’s super scary having to deal with this.

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.

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!!

QUESTION
What is the content of Simparica compared to Nexgard?
ANSWERS (1)
The ingredient in Simparica is Sarolaner. Simparica 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)] The ingredient in Nexgard is Afoxolaner. NexGard Chewables keep your pet protected from adult fleas by killing them before they have a chance to lay eggs, which reduces the possibility of a flea infestation. Plus, they kill 3 types of ticks (the American dog tick, the black-legged (Deer) tick and the Lone Star tick), which decreases the risk of your pet developing a deadly tick-borne disease.
