Drops from fleas for dogs belong to the group of low-hazard insecticidal preparations that have a complex antiparasitic effect. These products come in the form of a convenient polyethylene pipette and are a clear, sometimes oily liquid with a dosage calculated for a single use according to the specific weight of the dog.
Most often, drugs act on several types of various parasites at once – blood-sucking, flying, internal and external. The principle of action of the active substance is based on a nerve effect, as a result of which insects lose their ability to move and reproduce. In addition, remaining and accumulating on the skin and fur of the animal, the substance continues to scare off parasites for 1-2 months. Many drugs have a moisture-resistant effect that allows you to bathe your dog without losing the repellent effect.
We suggest that you familiarize yourself in our rating with the best anti-flea products for dogs, according to buyers and our experts.
