Certifect for Dogs is Merial's new long-lasting, monthly topical flea and tick preventative. Proven flea protection with added tick killing power. The newest addition to the FRONTLINE® family of flea and tick control products not only kills fleas and prevents their reproduction, it now kills ticks within 18 hours and detaches ticks so that they cannot transmit the tick-borne diseases, which have now been found in most U.S. states.
CERTIFECT is made for all dogs at risk for tick exposure that still need proven flea control. It uses a small amount of amitraz to enhance the tick-killing power of fipronil, which along with (S)-methoprene, are the active ingredients in FRONTLINE Plus. Amitraz and fipronil act together against ticks’ nervous systems to kill more ticks and increase the speed of kill compared to equivalent concentrations of fipronil alone
CERTIFECT is a topical formulation applied to two places on a dog’s neck: at the base of the skull and between the shoulder blades where the dog cannot lick. CERTIFECT has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for puppies older than eight weeks and greater than or equal to five pounds.
CERTIFECT should not be used on cats. In studies, no adverse effects were noted on cats in homes with treated dogs.
