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.

    Great for flea infestation.

    By on

    I've been using this on my pup for a year now, and it's absolutely fantastic at protecting her against fleas and ticks. Because the medication is distributed after the pests bite her flesh, it eliminates crusty residue from topical treatments. Living in a rural town, we're always hiking or wheeling, and in over a year she hasn't had any pests that survived over 24 hours.

    Chewable? They are hard

    By on

    I have a 7 1/2 month old boxer with a strong bite and my vet insisted on this product. I cannot even fool her into taking it in peanut butter, cheese, etc. She spits it out. I now have to crush it with a meat tenderizer (yup not chewable) and mix in peanut butter. Once gone I will ask my vet for something else.

    So far so good.

    No reaction from either on my Shelties. A bit pricey compared to frontline. Let’s see how it goes.

    easy chewable pill

    By on

    Super easy to give to your pooch, if they will eat them. Only reason I gave 4 stars was because my pooch would only eat part of it and the rest I had to try to fool her into eating.
