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.

    We’ve only had the product for one round of application, but my furry friend is no longer itching. That’s a total plus for our household! So far so good!!!

    Like treats!

    Cheaper on chewy than through my vet, who recommended these as they protect against both fleas and ticks - the topical kind only protects from fleas. I was really worried at first since these are chewable, and pretty big, but my little Jack Russell loves them, he just eats them right out of my hand. No big chore to get him to take it every month.

    Would not recommend this flea and tick medication. Found 4 ticks on our dog and she had never had any ticks with the collar we were using

    This works!!!!!

    By on

    We spent over $500 on flea medicines and treatments for our animals and house. Nothing worked. They were bionic fleas. My vet prescribed this and within a day my animals had relief and I was seeing a difference. It is an amazing product for whatever breed of fleas are in Oregon.

    It’s great

    By on

    I put this flea medicine on a outside dog because she was infested with fleas. Within two days, the fleas were gone. It was also really easy to administer to the dog because it’s chewable and the dog ate it without any problem.

    It Works Well

    By on

    Ordering through Chewy is no hassle at all and seamless. Dog takes this pill with no problems at all I do break it into smaller pieces and use it as training to make sure he is chewing and swallowing these guys as well as heartworm.

    Meh .. worked for a bit

    By on

    Worked in the winter, but isn't working in the Florida heat for the full 30 days. The flea still had to bite our dog, which is leaving him itchy. We're looking at switching products. He's been on Credelio 4 months.

    Have used chewy for ordering food, toys, but first time for medications. It was easy and quick. Chewy contacted my vet and I received the meds quickly. Love Chewy
