Merial is set to launch Frontect, a spot-on solution for dogs that treats and prevents fleas and ticks while offering long-lasting repellency against ticks, sandflies, biting flies and mosquitoes.
The repellent (anti-feeding) effect of Frontect prevents parasites from taking a “blood meal” and, as a result, vets and pet owners can feel confident they are helping to protect dogs from the vectors of severe canine diseases – including leishmaniasis, dirofilariosis, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis and borreliosis – whether travelling within the UK or abroad.
Frontect is administered topically in two out-of-reach spots, on the neck and between the shoulder blades of the dog.
Brand manager Lynda Maris said: “Frontect is ideal for active, outdoor dogs and travelling dogs at risk of exposure to ticks and vector borne diseases.”
- Frontect will be available from May 2015 in five different weight ranges to suit all dogs.
