Effipro Antiparasitic Spray Dogs and Cats
Effipro spray for easy, effective treatment against fleas, lice and ticks in dogs and cats
It is safe in puppies and kittens from 2 days of age
Fipronil 2.5 mg/ml spray solution
The product can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of flea bite allergy dermatitis (DAPP).
Insecticidal efficacy against new adult flea infestations lasts up to 6 weeks in cats and up to 3 months in dogs, depending on environmental impact.
The product has persistent acaricidal efficacy for up to 4 weeks against ticks, depending on the level of environmental impact.
The amount of fipronil absorbed by the skin in the dog, after application of the spray on the fur and skin, is very small and even negligible.
The persistence of fipronil in the hair is very long (on average 52.5 ± 11.5 days), since the limit of quantification of the titration method is 0.25 µg/g.
In all species, Fipronil is metabolized mainly to its sulfone derivative (RM1602), which also has insecticidal and acaricidal properties.
The RM1602 detected in the hair after spraying the spray on the dog can be explained by the presence of the derivative in the original raw material.

Fipronil is an insecticide and acaricide of the phenylpyrazole family. It works by inhibiting the GABA complex, binding to the chloride channel and thus blocking the pre- and postsynaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. This generates an uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and the death of insects and mites.
Fipronil shows insecticidal and acaricidal activity against fleas (Ctenocephalides spp), ticks (Rhipicephalus spp., Ixodes spp.) and lice (Trichodectes spp. and Felicola subrostratus) in cats and dogs.
