This unique formulation spreads across the skin and is released over time. This results in fast-acting and long-lasting control of external parasites.
What is Parastar Plus? Parastar Plus is an ectoparasiticide that you apply to your dog’s skin. It is generally given once a month in order to kill fleas and ticks. It works quickly killing targeted external parasites in as little as one hour. This medication works to kill fleas, brown dog ticks, deer ticks, American dog ticks, and lone star ticks which can cause discomfort and illness in your dog. It also kills chewing lice and works to control mites that may cause sarcoptic mange.

How is this medication given? Separate one product tube from the others once removing it from the box. Hold the tube with the notched end pointing up and away from the face and body. Cut off the narrow end at the notches with scissors which will open the tube. Place the open end of the tube over the dog and use it or your hand to part his/her hair so that you can see the skin. Apply liquid on the skin in one spot on your dog’s back between the shoulder blades until the tube is empty. Make sure the treated area on your dog’s skin is completely dry before bathing or swimming. This usually takes about 24 hours. Dosing is usually based on your dog’s body weight. One monthly treatment protects your dog for 30 days. It is usually recommended to apply this medication monthly on all twelve months of the year but always follow your veterinarian’s instructions.
How does this medication work? This medication contains 2 active ingredients: Fipronil and cyphenothrin.
Fipronil interacts wit3h gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA)-gated and glutamate-gated chloride channels in the nervous systems of target species which blocks nerve transmission. This results in eventual death of fleas, chewing lice, brown dog ticks, deer ticks, American dog ticks, and lone star ticks. Cyphenothrin is a pyrethroid. It works by interfering with sodium transport in insect nerve cells. This causes rapid paralysis and eventual death of any affected ectoparsites.
What results can I expect? This medication works fast. Parastar Plus starts killing targeted ectoparasites in as little as one hour. One application once a month keeps your dog protected for 30 days. Parastar Plus kills fleas, brown dog ticks, deer ticks, American dog ticks, lone star ticks, and chewing lice. Some ticks can cause illnesses in your dog including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and hepatozoonosis. This medication also controls mites that can cause sarcoptic mange. Parastar Plus DOES NOT protect against mosquitos.
What Form(s) does Parastar Plus come in? This medication is a liquid that is for external use only. It is applied to your dog’s skin once a month or as directed by your veterinarian. There are 4 strengths available. The appropriate strength/dose of medication that is right for your dog is typically based on his/her body weight.

Dose and Administration: Remove one tube from the package and separate it from the others. Holding the tube with the notched end pointing up and away from your face and body. Cut off the narrow end at the notches with scissors. Now you are ready to apply this medication. To apply a dose of Parastar Plus to your dog: hold your dog with one hand and use the other hand to apply the liquid. In order to apply this medication correctly, invert the tube and use the open end to part dog’s hair so that you can visualize the skin. Apply the entire contents of the open tube on one spot on your dog’s back between the shoulder blades. Make sure to apply the medication directly on your dog’s skin and not on the hair coat. Continue to hold your dog for a few seconds to give the solution time to be absorbed. Allow the treated area on your dog’s skin to dry(about 24 hours) before bathing your pet or letting your dog swim. When finished, wrap the tube in paper and place it in the trash. Only one applicator per treatment is needed. Repeat applications may be made if necessary but do not apply more than once every 4 weeks. Studies show that Parastar Plus kills fleas for up to 30 days. If your pet is at high risk for flea reinfestation, or in a highly infested environment, try to apply one dose every month. Parastar Plus should remain effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight.
