Fipronil ………………………… 100g


Feature and Benefits
 
Fipronil, active ingredient of ECTO COP spot-on, belongs to the family phenylpyrazole. It blocks the transfer of chloride ions through the cell membranes at the pre and post synaptic binding in the chloride channel, by inhibiting the GABA(Gamma-Amino Butylic Acid) receptor. It thus causes uncontrolled activity on the central nervous system of insects like ticks and fleas and their death. Fipronil collects in the oils of the skin and hair follicles of dogs and continues to be released from hair follicles onto the skin and coat, resulting in long lasting activity.

Indications
 
Control of ticks and fleas in dogs
