SENTINEL FOR DOGS HEARTWORMS, WORMS, AND FLEA TREATMENT
Sentinel flavored tablets for dogs are beef flavored chews that treat gastrointestinal worms, breaks flea life cycle and prevents gnarly heartworm infestations. These monthly chews are exceptionally effective in breaking the flea life cycle and preventing re-infestation. Recommended by most of the vets, the oral treatment inhibits the growth of heartworm larvae i.e. microfilaria and kills roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. The treatment is safe for the puppies 8 weeks of age or more and weighing at least 2 lbs or more.
The active ingredients, Lufenuron, and Milbemycin Oxime work individually on fleas and worms. Lufenuron, which is an insect growth regulator, breaks the flea-like cycle by inhibiting the production of chitin which restricts the flea larvae to develop the hard outer shell, as a result, the insect dies from dehydration after molting. Whereas, Milbemycin oxime kills worms and microfilaria by opening the sensitive chloride channels leading to Hyperpolarization and hindering of nerve signal transfer.
Note: Due to Elanco’s acquisition of Novartis Animal Health, the product packs may have varied manufacturer’s name according to the available stock.
