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.

    Amazing Company

    As per usual, Chewy always comes through with quick shipping and professional handling of all my fur babies needs. If any issue arises (temporary supply issue), they are quick to notify me and ship out pronto when back in stock. Thank you for being a trusted friend.

    I love these little pills.My little Abby is a 3year old chihuahua.She was anxious & scratching constantly,she was miserable. I searched for anything to help,baths,special soaps,drops.Finally, her Vet suggested Credelio. To me & to her, it's a miracle.No more scratching,not anxious anymore! She chewed the pill right up with no problem. Thank you for creating this pill for our furbabies.I also want to thank Chewy for carrying these & for the monthly shipments .

    Missing Items

    By on

    Well I really did not want to do this but here goes. The order arrived and for the first time some was missing. I ordered 6 and only 1 was in the box. I have called and the second time was told someone from pharmacy would get back with me. No call back. Due to a family emergency I was unable to make a third call when I should have so I am out 5 months worth of treatment. Now I will give them another chance but I suspect my vet is going to have an issue approving a refill at this time. I am in a tizzy now.

    absolutely worth it!

    By on

    I love this product. I started using it for my Mini Aussie as soon as she was old enough and now at almost 8 months old she has NEVER had a flea or tick on her. We are pretty active and go on hikes through heavily-wooded areas every week, she’s also around dogs at the dog park and neighborhood animals so I feel like the product has been well-tested. The first few doses seemed to upset her belly a little, but that has gone away. Because she is around a lot of kids, I love that it’s internal and you don’t have to worry about putting something toxic on her skin that little fingers could touch.

    My only complaint is that you can't get them in 6 months as I do the Heartgard.

    Good Product

    By on

    This is a good choice for a smaller dog (I have a Maltese/Bichon mix). Unlike other oral flea/tick remedies, this one has a "fourth size" (6.1-12 lbs), so you avoid overdosing with other pills that have a larger weight range. Also, b/c it's a monthly treatment, should you have side-effects, it's not like the 3-month pills. So far, it's worked well (I've used it for 5 months).
