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

    This is a brand new product from Bayer so I can’t say how effective it is at preventing parasites. I can tell you that after applying it to my pup he developed the most revolting scent I can imagine, and he is normally not a stinky dog. I gave him two baths and the smell started to come back. While it’s not as pungent as it was and I cannot prove the scent related to the medication, I am confident enough in the connection that I have opted to switch to a different heartworn preventative and will have to throw out five remaining tubes of coraxis, wasting the money spent to purchase it. I do not recommend this product.
