Raritan Animal Hospital has made the switch to Simparica for chewable flea and tick protection. Simparica provides safe, monthly flea and tick protection for dogs that starts working fast and remains effective all month long. Simparica starts killing fleas within 3 hours and ticks within 8 hours, and it has been shown to keep working for 35 days without losing effectiveness at the end of the month. Simparica will:
- Provide rapid relief for pets with existing flea infestations, even dogs with flea allergies
- Improve clinical signs of flea allergies in dogs by eliminating fleas
- Prevent and control home flea infestations, killing fleas before they can lay eggs
- Quickly kill ticks, which may help reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening flea- and tick-borne diseases
- Kill a wider range of ticks with better efficacy: Brown Dog Tick, Deer Tick, American Dog Tick, Lone Star Tick, Gulf Coast Tick
In addition, Simparica is able to be given to dogs with both beef and chicken allergies. Finally, Simparica is significantly less expensive than most other flea and tick protection as well as providing a $15 rebate for a 6 month purchase and $35 for a 12 month purchase.
