Prac-tic Spot On for Dogs
Pract-tic is a spot on solution that is given to dogs in the form of spot on pre-filled pipettes. It assists in killing parasites that reside on the skin or in the fur of animals like fleas and ticks. It is used to treat and prevent flea and tick infestation in dogs. It remains effective for at least a month after application. This product is recommended for dogs at least 8 weeks of age and weighing more than 4 lbs. This spot on treatment ensures that tick infestations like Amblyomma americanum, Ixodes scapularis, Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus are days of the past. It is available in the 3 or 6 pipettes. It also aids in treating and controlling Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) in dogs.
How it works?
Pyriprole is the active ingredient present in Prac-tic. It interacts with the receptor involved in transmitting neural impulses. It interferes with the nervous system of fleas and ticks resulting in death of these parasites. The USP of this active ingredient is that adult fleas are killed before they have a chance of laying eggs thus it prevents flea population thereby breaking the flea lifecycle.
