FIPROFORT PLUS SPOT ON FOR CATS
Fipronil belongs to the family of phenylpyrazole. It acts by interaction with complexes formed between the chloride channels and their ligands, especially the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid), thus blocking the transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes to levels pre and post synaptic. It causes uncontrolled activity on the central nervous system of insects and mites and causes their death. Fipronil kills fleas within 24 hours, ticks (Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes scapularis, Ixodes ricinus, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Haemaphysalis flava and Haemaphysalis campanulata) and lice within 48 hours after application of the product.
The (S)-methoprene is a regulator of insect growth (ROI) of the class of similar juvenile hormone, it inhibits the development of immature stages of insects. Mimicking the action of the juvenile hormone, the compound causes impaired development and death of immature stages of fleas. The ovicidal activity of (S)-methoprene applied to the cat results either from direct penetration into the shell flea eggs newly laid or its absorption through the cuticle of adult fleas. The (S)-methoprene is also effective in preventing the development of larvae and pupae chip, prevents contamination of the habitat of cats treated with the immature stages of fleas.
