Simparica Medium Dog 10-20kg Blue 3-pk
Simparica is a new innovative monthly tasty chew for dogs to keep on top of fleas, ticks, mange and mites that’s fast and lasts all month long.
Kills fleas fast and lasts for the full month
Starts killing over 50% of fleas within 3 hours with 100% fleas killed within 8 hours. Kills fleas fast before they can lay eggs, protecting pets and homes from flea infestation for 35 days.
Simparica keeps killing ticks fast all month long, minimising the risk of tick paralysis and illness. It protects dogs against paralysis, brown dog and bush ticks for 35 days.
Extended ectoparasite spectrum including mange and mites
Simparica not only kills fleas and ticks, it's also the only chewable for dogs that registered for effective treatment and control of sarcoptic mange, ear mites and demodex mites.
Flea, tick and mite protection that works fast and lasts for 35 days
While Simparica is a monthly chew, it continues to protect for 35 days, an extra 4-5 days beyond the monthly treatment period. This benefits 4 out of 5 dog owners who admit to giving their flea and tick treatments an average of 5 days late. So dogs are still protected when owners are a few days late.

Simparica is a tasty liver flavoured chew that dogs love and it is readily consumed when offered as a treat.
Simparica can be given with or without food unlike some other treatments.
Ideal solution for dogs that require regular bathing
Simparica can be used as part of the treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis. Its systemic activity provides an ideal solution for dogs that require regular bathing.
Well tolerated in dogs from 8 weeks of age and 1.3kg
Simparica is well tolerated in all breeds, including Collies and can be used in combination with other routine veterinary medications.
Simparica contains the active ingredient sarolaner, which inhibits the function of the neurotransmitter gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor and glutamate receptor, and works at the neuromuscular junction in insects. This results in uncontrolled neuromuscular activity leading to death in insects or acarines. Simparica is administered once a month directly by mouth or can be crumbled and mixed with food. To minimize the likelihood of flea re-infestation, it is important to treat all dogs and cats within a household with an approved flea control product.
Dosage and administration
For oral use. Tablets can be administered with or without food. Simparica should be administered at a dose of 2-4 mg/kg bodyweight in accordance with the following table:
|Bodyweight (kg)||Tablet strength (mg sarolaner)||Number of tablets to be administered|
|1.3 - 2.5||5||One|
|>2.5 - 5||10||One|
|>5 - 10||20||One|
|>10 - 20||40||One|
|>20 - 40||80||One|
|>40||Appropriate combination of tablets|
Use appropriate combination of available strengths to achieve the recommended dose of 2–4 mg/kg. Simparica tablets are chewable and palatable and readily consumed by dogs when offered by the owner. If the tablet is not taken up voluntarily by the dog it can also be given with food or directly into the mouth. The tablets should not be divided. Treatment schedule: For optimal control of flea and tick infestations, Simparica should be administered at monthly intervals and continued throughout the flea and/or tick season based on local epidemiological situations. For the treatment of sarcoptic mange (caused by Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis) a single dose should be administered at monthly intervals for two consecutive months.
