Long residual insecticide for the treatment and prevention of infestation of fleas and ticks and as an aid in the control of flea allergic dermatitis on cats. Fipronil is able to target 3 receptors in the nervous system of the parasite. It blocks the entry of chloride ions into the nerve cell (neuron) by binding to the 3 receptor sites (GABA, D and N Glutamate), resulting in hyper excitation and subsequent death of the neuron, and eventual death of the parasite.
Since the receptor sites in mammals are quite different, fipronil can't bind to them, and the neurons remain unaffected. This mechanism allows parasites to be targeted while pets and pet owners remain unaffected by the product. An important point to remember is that, since fipronil causes a hyper excitation of the nervous system, ticks and fleas become hyperactive, often appearing on the top of the animal's coat instead of hiding away on the skin. Pet owners often erroneously assume that the zero ticks and fleas are not working, this is not the case and it is merely a matter of time before the parasites die.
