Two New Flea-Control Drugs

FDA Approves Credelio and Selarid

Two flea control products recently received FDA approval for use in cats 8 weeks of age and older. Both require a prescription from your veterinarian.

Credelio (lotilaner) is a monthly chewable tablet for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis). Selarid (selamectin) is indicated for flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), intestinal hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme), and roundworm (Toxocara cati) infections.
