Monthly tick and flea protection for dogs that keeps going strong for 35 days. 1 1-888-Zoetis1 Features/Functions: Ticks: Simparica starts killing ticks in 8 hours, 2 reducing the likelihood of transmission of tick-borne pathogens. 3 In a clinical study, Simparica was shown to block the transmission of Lyme Disease and Anaplasmosis from deer ticks to dogs. 4 Fleas: Simparica starts killing fleas in 3 hours to provide rapid relief for pets with fleas— even dogs with flea allergic dermatitis (FAD). Simparica kills fleas before the reproductive breakpoint, meaning before they lay eggs. Simparica effectively protects pets and homes from infestations for 35 days. Benefit: Quick kill provides patient comfort and can protect against flea infestations and tick-borne diseases. Features/Functions: Simparica's monthly dosing makes it easy for clients to stick with a routine. Plus, if they dose a few days late, it's okay, Simparica continues to kill fleas and ticks for up to 35 days. 1 So you can rest assured you're not leaving your patients with risky gaps in protection. Benefit: Peak efficacy lasts for a full 35 days leaving no risky gaps. Features/Functions: Simparica will help practices compete against over-the-counter (OTC) brands and bring tick and flea protection back into the practice.

Dispensing tick and flea protection to clients improves the economic health of practices and provides clients with a premium product at an affordable price.
