What is Piretron pipettes and how does it work?
Pyrethron is an effective flea and tick treatment for small dogs.
Its active ingredient is Fipronil, which has an insecticidal and acaricidal effect .
It is used as a Spot-On that once applied is distributed over the entire surface of the dog's skin. There it is stored in the sebaceous glands and continuously released.
Fipronil acts against the nervous system of the parasites causing their death.
Each pipette protects your pet for 1 month.
The Seresto antiparasitic collar from the Bayer laboratory is an innovative antiparasitic against fleas and ticks for dogs and cats that offers protection for up to eight months , the longest among external antiparasitic currently available. It also provides a novelty in veterinary practice due to its acaricidal and repellent properties, especially in cats.
Seresto antiparasitic collars for dogs combine imidacloprid and flumethrin that exert a synergistic effect (according to in vitro studies) enhancing the action of the active ingredients. Imidacloprid has a proven action against adult fleas, larvae and lice, and flumethrin acts as an acaricide and repellent against adult ticks, larvae and nymphs. This repellent effect of flumethrin, which is also the only approved pyrethroid in cats, reduces the risk of contracting vector-borne diseases in dogs and cats.

Risks for animals in the presence of fleas and ticks
Fleas can transmit:
An eczema called “Flea Allergy Dermatitis” (DAPP). FAD , which is quite common, is due to the allergen contained in the flea's saliva. Its consequences are: skin problems, intense itching, changes in the behavior of the animal (irritability...).
A tapeworm, Dipylidium caninum: a parasitic flatworm of the intestine of animals. If the animal ingests a flea carrying a larva, this larva will quickly become an adult in its gut. The consequences are multiple: weight loss, vomiting, diarrhoea, lack of energy...
Ticks can transmit:
Irritations, allergies in case of repeated infestations, and on rare occasions reversible paralysis (action of its toxic saliva).
Piroplasmosis, caused by a microscopic parasite that invades the dog's red blood cells and destroys them. It can be fatal or leave sequelae in the liver and kidneys. Symptoms: depression, fever, anemia, yellowing of the skin, dark urine.
Lyme disease, caused by a bacteria transmitted by the bite. It causes fever in the animal and can suffer from anorexia, asthenia, polyarthritis and muscle pain.
Ehrlichiosis: A serious, often fatal disease transmitted by the brown tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus). Its symptoms are: fatigue, fever, joint pain and vomiting.
All of these diseases are not easily diagnosed. They can leave sequels and for some, there is no vaccine available.
To be safe, it is very important to treat your pet with preventive pest control and on a regular basis.
