You might not believe that your dog can get monthly protection against 8 parasites with just a single chewable tablet, but Credelio PLUS packs a punch. It combines two active ingredients that deliver powerful protection while being safe for dogs and puppies.
Credelio Plus’ first active ingredient, lotilaner, is extra-purified and absorbed into your dog’s blood stream rapidly, providing quick relief from existing ticks and fleas and ongoing protection against future infestations. This extra purification process means your dog gets what they need and nothing they don’t.
Extra purification of lotilaner benefits your dog by:
- Leaving out what's not needed, so that there's less for your dog's body to process.
- Allowing for a smaller tablet size, that's easy to give.1
The second active ingredient, milbemycin oxime, is long established and has been protecting Australian dogs for over 15 years. It delivers protection against 3 types of intestinal worms; roundworms, hookworms and whipworm, while also preventing heartworm disease , so you can help keep your dog healthy all year round with convenient, monthly treatment.
