FAQ

What is lotilaner, the active ingredient in Credelio?

Lotilaner is a member of the isoxazoline class of parasiticides. It has acaracidal and insecticidal activity, and acts as an inhibitor of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)–gated chloride channels (GABACls).

Can Credelio be given to dogs with food allergies?

Credelio tablets are made with a beef flavoring containing pork liver and soy but no actual beef. Tablets also contain barley, wheat and lactose. Consult your veterinarian before using in dogs with food allergies to pork, soy, barley, wheat or lactose.

What is the acceptability/ palatability of Credelio

In a field trial, the acceptability of credelio was tested at 10 different locations across the u.s. 94% of dogs accepted Credelio from the hand, in the bowl or with food. The remaining 6% accepted Credelio when placed in the mouth. There were no reports of unsuccessful dosing.

The positive control in the u.s. field trial was Nexgard® (afoxolaner). Acceptability results were very similar, with only 4% reaching the “placed in mouth” stage. Also, Nexgard had no reports of unsuccessful dosing.

What is the shelf life of Credelio?

Please reference the individual packaging of Credelio for the expiration date.

How long does a Credelio tablet remain stable outside the blister pack?

No stability testing has been performed on tablets once they have been removed from the blister pack. We do not recommend taking the tablets out of the blister pack for storage in another container. Credelio tablets should only be taken out of the blister pack at the time of dosing.

Is Credelio gluten-free?

Yes, Credelio is considered gluten-free.

    Worked like I needed it to

    By MichiganMike on Nov 4, 2021

    Needed something for a small dog with smaller fleas. He was itching, scratching all the time. My dog is very picky about food, but he ate it as if it was a treat. I noticed he was not scratching as much after a few days. In about 7 days, he is flea free.

    Great product

    By Rochele on Oct 8, 2021

    My Australian Shepherd was scratching a lot and since she took her first Credelio tablet, she stopped scratching herself. It is been a relief. I recommend it.

    Best I've Used So Far

    By tifycus on Aug 9, 2021

    Our vet recommended this, and it has great! My dog will take it as is (no need to hide it in food). He is running though the tall grass and wooded areas daily at the dog park, and we haven't found a single tick on him yet.

    The only flea control for my bestie friend.

    By Katy2 on Jun 29, 2021

    Tried other products for my little 11 lb. Morkie but most of them irritated his stomach causing vomitting. The topical products also caused a skin reaction. My vet no longer keeps this product in stock so I'm SO glad I can get it from Chewy.

    Works great.

    By Linda on Feb 8, 2021

    I tried some OTC flea and tick products and it was like putting water on, they did nothing. Then my Vet. prescribed the Credelio, it worked like a charm, fleas gone, and there were plenty. Also we hike a lot, and of course there are ticks. On one of our hikes my dog, a Sheltie, had 30 ticks that I picked off, the good news, none of them were able to penetrate, and were obviously repelled by the Credelio. No side affects.
