Activyl Spot on Once a Month Flea Treatment For Cats Over 9lbs Single dose
The What makes Activyl flea treatment different?
Activyl contains indoxacarb, an innovative active ingredient, which was specifically developed to overcome insect resistance in crop protection.
Indoxacarb is a pro-insecticidal compound that requires enzymatic activation in the flea where it is converted into its highly potent insecticidal form.
Activyl is metabolized differently in insects than in mammals.
Unlike insects, mammals mostly metabolize indoxacarb into nontoxic metabolites.
It contains indoxacarb, an active ingredient never before used for flea control, and features bioactivation–a mode of action that uses enzymes inside the flea to activate Activyl’s full flea-killing power.
It is effective at killing adult and developing stages of fleas and there is no known resistance.
It delivers 4 weeks of efficacy against adult fleas on the pet and developing stages of fleas in the pet’s environment.
It is well tolerated by dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.
It is approved for use on dogs and puppies over 4 lb from 8 weeks of age.
It is approved for use on cats and kittens over 2 lb from 8 weeks of age.
It is waterproof and remains effective after shampooing and bathing.
It remains effective after exposure to sunlight. 1
The active metabolite of indoxacarb induces irreversible hyperpolarization of insect nerve cell membranes.
It blocks the sodium current amplitude in the neuron differently than the pyrethroids.
This results in impaired insect nerve function, feeding cessation, paralysis and death of susceptible insects.
Effective against immature flea stages and thereby breaking the flea life cycle
Activyl rapidly affects adult fleas following contact or ingestion resulting first in cessation of flea feeding and then causing flea paralysis and death.
Controlled tests show that 90% of adult fleas are killed within 12 hours of application and newly arriving fleas are killed within 8-12 hours for a full month.
Activyl also kills developing stages of fleas in the environment of treated dogs and cats, meaning that these stages cannot develop into biting adult fleas.
A single treatment with Activyl inhibits the development of immature fleas exposed to debris from treated animals by more than 90% for at least 4 weeks5.
This is reflected in the dramatic decrease in household infestation following treatment with Activyl.
Since more than just adult fleas are affected, pets get relief and the flea life cycle in the environment is also inhibited, rapidly solving the many stages of your client’s flea problem.
