1 ml of the product contains:

fipronil — 100 mg

S-methoprene — 90 mg

 

Description

Clear liquid of yellowish color or colorless.

 

Pharmacological properties

Fipren — combined topical insectoacaricide, acts on fleas Ctenocephalides spp. at all development stages, louse Felicola subrostratus, Trichodectes canis, ixodic ticks Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes scapularis, Ixodes ricinus, Ixodes holocyclus, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Haemaphysalis flava, Haemaphysalis campanulata, Haemaphysalis leachi, Amblyomma americanum, mosquitos Aedes aegypti, mites Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis, other ectoparasites affecting dogs, cats, ferrets.

Fipronil belongs to the insecto-acaracides of the phenylpyrazole group. It blocks selectively action of GABA chlorine-ion channels in nerve cells membranes of arthropods, and leads to disorder of nerve impulse transmission, convulsion and death of ectoparasites

S-methoprene is an analogue of the juvenile hormone, which acts as a regulator of insect growth and suppresses their growth and morphological development in the stages of the egg, larva and pupae due to antagonism with the ecdysone responsible for the growth and development of the larva. The ovocidal effect of S-methoprene appears as a result of direct penetration into the shell of eggs.

After a spot application to the skin, fipronil is slowly absorbed (up to 11%) until a lowest plasma concentration (Cmax) of about 35 ng / ml fipronil and 55 ng / ml of its main extensive metabolite fipronil-sulfone. The maximum concentration of fipronil in the blood plasma is achieved slowly (after about 100 hours) and decreases slowly (half-life is more than 150 hours).

Concentrations of S-metoprene in blood plasma after the skin application is below the limit of their quantification (20 ng / ml).

S-metoprene and fipronil together with its metabolite fipronil-sulphone are well distributed in animal wool within 24 hours after application. The concentration in the wool decreases over time, but the drug is detected even 60 days after application.

Ectoparasites die mainly due to contact with the drug: fleas — within 24 hours, mites and lice — within 48 hours. The drug acts effectively against fleas at all stages of their development for 8 weeks, against ticks - for a minimum of 4 weeks after application.

Fiprene refers to low-toxic substances for warm-blooded animals and at recommended doses does not give skin irritant, resorptive-toxic, embryotoxic and teratogenic effects.
