Fipronil is a new generation broad-spectrum ectoparasiticidal belonging to phenylpyrazole class. Fipronil disrupts the insect's central nervous system by blocking the passage of chloride ions through the GABA receptor and glutamate receptor (GluCl). Fipronil acts by binding to an allosteric site of GABA receptors. Its neurotoxicity is selective, because the configuration of GABA receptors in mammals is different from insects.
For effective treatment and prevention of all life stages of ectoparasites i.e. tick (including ticks responsible for tick fever), flea (flea allergy dermatitis) and lice in Dogs and Cats.

Weight 15 kg = 90 pump actions
Weight 30 kg = 180 pump actions
