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.

    EXPIRED MEDICATIONS

    By on

    They only have expired medications in chewy facilities. Apparently FDA approved an extension to the time dating on prescribed medication so chewy will ship you medication expiring in this year because it’s new expiration date is next year. I don’t feel comfortable but I already opened the 120$ box and pretty sure I can’t get a refund now.

    No Fleas or Ticks

    By on

    I haven't found any fleas or ticks on my two dogs who live in the country and go on trails 5 days a week. I just wish it wasn't a monthy pill but every 6 months.

    MADE MY DOG TERRIBLY SICK

    By on

    I gave this to my dog around noon and 2 hours later she had diarrhea, was lethargic, and would not touch her dinner. She couldn’t sleep through the night and in the morning she tried to eat and proceeded to throw up multiple times to the point where she was scared to even drink water. Do not put your dogs through this!!!!

    Credelio Chewable tablet for flea control

    By on

    Sincerely appreciate your efforts in getting this prescription approved by our vet. They have their own pharmacy and did not immediately fill the prescription. Your prices are much more competitive and we prefer to purchase from you. (They called to try and get us to purchase from them which is, no doubt, what caused the delay in your receiving approval.)

    Ask your vet, do your research

    By on

    Credelio has been indirectly identified as to have caused my hound to have seizures. We've consulted tirelessly with our vet and eventually decided to take him off Credelio as there were some studies that it was causing seizures. We immediately did so and we have seen improvement. This review isn't to say that Credelio causes seizures for all dogs...cause obviously there are positive reviews here, but flea/tick medicine is a big deal and if you're like us, we just lazily went with what was recommend to us and we almost lost our boy because of it. Consult your vet, be cautious...there's a lot of conflict research out there with flea/tick medicine.

    Check Your Expiration Dates!

    By on

    Credelio is a great product, recommended by my vet. My puppy has never had any fleas or ticks although she loves to roll around in leaf piles, under the deck, and in areas of the yard that I've picked up ticks. The issue is Chewy sending a six month supply of a product that expires in six months. !!Do your diligence and check all Rx expirations. Chewy may not be the best place to 'stock up' if the product barely has a usable shelf life.!!
