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.

    My Pet Jake.

    By on

    I have been using Credelio for my dog & it works well for him. My daughter also uses Chewy. The only thing is that when I got the meds for Jake there was no treat for him. My daughter saids she gets a treat in the box when it arrives.

    It Really Works!

    By on

    Had a new neighbor move in with a flea-infested cat they let roam. Furious! AdvantixII, natural flea baths, chemical flea baths, house sprays, constant cleaning and vacuuming, and even had an exterminator spray the yard. Nothing worked like this prescription! Results were immediate. Chewy made getting my Vet's prescription and shipping this item an absolute breeze. Love you, Chewy!

    I will only use this product!!!

    I recently moved to a high tick infested area. Needless to say, I could not walk my dog without her getting at least 1 tick. I let her out in our back yard since she was on Advantage II and I found 12 ticks that night. Our Veterinarian recommend the Seresto collar, which didn’t fully work. The collar is supposed to repel ticks completely and I would find them dead but attached. My Veterinarian then recommend to try the chewing one and gave me Credelio since it works faster than most for ticks. I love this. This has been a life savor. I do find ticks on her but I find them attached and dead (not engorged). We are at peace knowing that they will not get her sick. I will highly recommend.

    Worked when nothing else did!

    I have 3 older dogs that have never had fleas until we moved into a new house. They have always been on a flea preventative but apparently they became immune. I tried more expensive flea meds, vacuumed frequently, used dog, house and yard spays. I even tried putting salt on the carpet as I read this would help kills fleas as well. My dogs would seem clear for about a day after bathing with flea shampoo but then they quickly returned. Since we moved too far from our previous vet, I found one closer and asked for help. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to have had the fleas gone what seemed like immediately. One of my dogs was allergic to the fleas and was constantly itching, I was getting I have 3 older dogs that have never had fleas until we moved into a new house.

I am so glad Chewy sells it for a lower price than what I can get from my vet. Saving money is a great thing and with 3 dogs...it's necessary! … more

    Carter has a terrible flea bite reaction and every flea medicine we used did work and flea would still bite him even if he was carrying the flea this medicine actually prevented him from even getting bit by fleas when we went hiking
