How does Credelio Flea & Tick Chewable Tablets for Dogs & Puppies work?
Lotilaner is an active component found in Credelio. The skin of the ectoparasitic host is rendered inhospitable by this ectoparasiticide. Ectoparasites are parasitic insects and acari (mites and ticks) that reside on the host's skin. Credelio fights infestation by interfering with the parasites' ability to transport GABA chloride across cell membranes. Because these substances are required for maintaining neuromuscular homeostasis, their blockage results in parasite death. Ticks and fleas won't bother your dog, and he'll be pleased. Because the treatment is selectively toxic, it might have a distinct effect on each mammal.
