Veterinary Products Laboratories unveiled the Ovitrol X-Trend line of parasiticides for cats and dogs.

Central Garden & Pet subsidiary Veterinary Products Laboratories launched a pair of etofenprox-based, veterinary-exclusive flea and tick control products for cats and dogs, VPL reported today.

The new products, Ovitrol X-Tend Flea and Tick Shampoo for Dogs and Cats and Ovitrol X-Tend Flea and Tick Spray for Dogs and Cats, contain both etofenprox, an adulticide, and the insect growth regulator (S)-Methoprene.

Because the products do not contain permethrin, which is toxic to cats, they can be used on cats or dogs and are ideal for households with both types of pets, said Debra Nickelson, DVM, spokesperson for VPL.

Both products are labeled for dogs and puppies 10 weeks of age and older, and for cats and kittens 12 weeks of age and older.

The shampoo is available in 12-ounce and 1-gallon bottles while the spray comes in a 16-ounce. bottle. The products are available through several distributors in the veterinary channel, said Dr. Nickelson.
