the fipronil is an insecticide and acaricide belonging to the family of the phenylpyrazoles. It acts by inhibiting GABA complex, by binding to the chloride channel and thus blocking the passage postsynaptic preet chlorides ions through the cell membrane. This translates by uncontrolled central nervous system activity and by the death of insects or mites. Fipronil is an insecticide activity and acaricide against fleas (Ctenocephalides spp.), ticks (Rhipicephalus SP., Ixodes SP.) and lice (Wigdor SP.) and Felicola SP. in the dog and cat. In vitro fipronil is primarily metabolized in its derivative sulfone (RM1602), which also has insecticidal properties and acaricides. This fipronil on hair concentrations decrease with time.

Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active ingredient, or one of the excipients.
if the animal licks, a brief episode of hypersalivation may be observed, mainly related to the nature of the solvent. Among suspected adverse reactions, transient cutaneous reactions at the level of the site application (skin discoloration, local alopecia, pruritus, Erythema) and cases of general pruritis or alopecia have been reported after use. These effects are extremely rare. The case of hypersalivation, reversible neurological symptoms (hyperesthesia, depression, nervous symptoms) or vomiting were exceptionally observed after use.
