Q & A
For Credelio, if my elderly dog is right at the weight cutoff/change in dosage, is it better to go with the lower dose? I hesitate to give more of the drug than needed, but also do not want to significantly change effectiveness.?
Please consult with your veterinarian about which dose they recommend for your dog’s weight.Verified Answer
Does this product kill when bitten, or kill with contact to skin but no biting??
According to Plumb’s Veterinary Handbook, the medication kills adult fleas and ticks only after the animal has been bitten.Verified Answer
my dogs are in the 80 lb range. Do you have doses for them??
According to the product label by the manufacturer for Credelio, dogs in the weight range of 50.1-100.0 lbs should have 900mg of lotilaner. The Credelio box for dogs weighing 25.1-50.0 lbs contains 450mg of lotilaner, so 2 tablets of the 25.1-50.0 lbs Credelio tablet would be equivalent to the dose needed for a dog in the weight range of 50.1-100.0 lbs. Please consult with your veterinarian to determine if the use of Credelio would be appropriate in your dog.Verified Answer
how long does it take to get results after the first dose? and can I give my dog a bath? He is taking Credelio, and weighs 16lbs.?
The full efficacy (>95%) against fleas is achieved within 4 hours of attachment for one month after product administration. Fleas on your dog prior to administration are killed within 6 hours. For adult ticks, the onset of effect (death) is about 48 hours. Giving your dog a bath will not change the effectiveness of the product.Verified Answer
