What is Simparica?

Simparica is indicated for the monthly treatment and prevention of fleas (Ctenocephalides sp.), the control of paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus), Brown Dog Tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and Bush ticks (Haemaphysalis longicornis), the treatment and control of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), demodex mites (Demodex canis) and sarcoptic mange (Sarcoptes scabiei) in dogs.

What is the active ingredient in Simparica and how does it work?
