New Novartis Flea and Tick Products to Hit Market

Posted: June 9, 2011, 7 p.m., EDT

Novartis Animal Health US, Inc. today launched new EPA-approved flea and tick control products for dogs and cats to be available through U.S. veterinarians this summer. Novartis Animal Health US, Inc. today launched new EPA-approved flea and tick control products for dogs and cats to be available through U.S. veterinarians this summer. Parastar for dogs and EasySpot for cats are species-specific formulations of fipronil, a flea and tick adulticide.
 
Parastar and EasySpot topicals are designed to offer fast-acting, waterproof, 30-day control of fleas, chewing lice and all major ticks, including those that may carry Lyme disease. Parastar is made especially for dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older. EasySpot is designed exclusively for cats and kittens 8 weeks of age and older.

“The Novartis family of parasiticides is defined by best-in-class medicine, so Parastar and EasySpot fit perfectly,” says Jason Drake, DVM, director of professional services at Novartis. “Together with the heartworm preventive medicine that veterinarians choose most for their own dogs and the only systemic flea product with an insect growth regulator, the proven power of fipronil found in Parastar and EasySpot is a natural addition to the family.”

Parastar and EasySpot are registered in more than 40 states. Visit ParaStarPet.com or EasySpotPet.com  for more information.

Sent mine back. Product arrived with no reabte support. Now find out the product is made by Sargeant's. We have been a very large Novartis account for years. That may change.

Have you heard about the product called Diatomaceous Earth? It really does wonders in the fight against fleas and a variety of other unwanted pests including bed bugs. It's safe and easy to use and is very effective. Learn more at LINK
