FAQ

How does Coraxis for Dogs work?

Coraxi is a transdermal formulation that is applied to the skin, where it is quickly absorbed and distributed throughout the body. From there, it accumulates in fatty tissue, which acts as a drug reservoir, releasing moxidectin into the bloodstream for 30 days.

Why should I recommend a transdermal formulation?

The transdermal formulation of Coraxis allows it to achieve and maintain high plasma levels, continuously killing susceptible stages of heartworms for 30 days. Administered monthly, Coraxis also provides treatment and control of hookworms, roundworms and whipworms.

How often can Coraxis be used?

As heartworms and intestinal parasites are all-too-common threats to the health of dogs in your care, we recommend the monthly use of Coraxis for Dogs year round.

Is Coraxis available for dogs of all sizes?

Coraxis is approved for dogs and puppies 7 weeks of age and older that weigh at least 3 pounds. It has been formulated for a wide range of weights and can be purchased through your Bayer sales representative.

Available in single-unit cartons of six tubes (monthly doses) in five different sizes.

    Stinky dog

    By on

    Since I just started using it (the medication is brand new this season), I can’t say for sure whether it is effective. I do love that this product was made without the flea protection, giving us a choice with what exactly I want to use for flea and ticks but after I applied this to my pup, he started to stink within a few days, the most horrible scent I’ve ever experienced with him. I bathed him - twice - and it didn’t completely take it away. Within a week, it’s already back to almost the same level of horrid. While I clearly can’t prove the correlation, I am fairly confident I know the medication is the cause since the stink seems to be limited to the general area of application and he never Since I just started using it (the medication is brand new this season), I can’t say for sure whether it is effective.

    Replacement for Advantage Multi

    By on

    My vet recommended this product instead of advantage multi; It is the same seller and product but without the "flea" protection. The flea protection is not as effective as in the past. So, I now use this as a heart preventative with SIMPARICA for flea and ticks prevention.
