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.

    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.

    My dog has been using this flea and tick chewables for about a year and she loves them. I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about her getting any fleas or ticks. Highly recommend

    Seamless RX ordering

    By Hudson on Mar 12, 2021

    We purchased this Credelio because our dog tolerates it much better than other products. We filled out the ordering template with our dogs Veterinarian information. They contacted him and we had our order several days later.

    My dog will not eat this medication

    By Nancy on Mar 3, 2021

    My dog will not eat this product. He never had a problem with it when I got it from my vet, so I'm baffled as to why he won't eat this Credelio. My dog was on it for years with no problems, so maybe it's just this batch or a change in formula?

    Works great!

    By JKA4 on Jan 6, 2021

    We tried a few different flea medications on our pup that did not work so well and the fleas would come back a few days later but this product works wonderfully! I love that its a chewable instead of putting it on topically. Our dog has been flea and tick free and I will continue to use this brand!

    Customer Service poor

    By PEGP on Sep 27, 2020

    Took too long to arrive ! You need a month to order from them. I canceled my Auto ship of food due to lengthy shipping. Thought I would give them another try with medication shipping. Not any better.

    Great product

    By Gabby on Aug 18, 2020

    This is the best flea medicine I’ve ever tried! We get tons of fleas outside in the summer time and when they jump on my puppy they just die and fall right off of her! Will be purchasing more!

    New Rx for my dog

    By Macy on Jun 11, 2020

    I needed a new Rx of Credelio for my dog. I had never used Chewy for medicines. It was a seamless process. They contacted my vet and got the Rx needed. Within a few days, I had my product. Their prices are always very fair also.

    Rip off - only one tablet at multiple tablet price

    By annoyedformercustomer on Jul 9, 2020

    This is extremely misleading packaging, looking like the regular 6 tablet box and only containing one tablet. You got one star because I couldn't go lower.
