How It Works
Once you have applied Certifect for Dogs to your dog, it starts killing pre-existing fleas and ticks quickly, with the help of fipronil, (S)-methoprene, and amitraz. Both Fipronil, a slow-acting poison that disrupts the central nervous system of fleas and ticks, and (S)-methoprene, an insect growth regulator that kills flea eggs and larvae, are long-lasting and work quickly to rid dogs of fleas and ticks. These two ingredients are stored in the sebaceous glands of your dog's skin and are wicked out of the hair follicles allowing for month-long protection against fleas and ticks. Certifect for Dogs also contains a small amount of amitraz, an insecticide that increases the tick-killing potency of fipronil. Unlike fleas, ticks tend to stay in one place on a host's body, but amitraz stimulates tick movement; therefore, increasing a tick's exposure to fipronil an effective tick-killing ingredient.
For dogs without flea and tick infestations, it works as an effective, long-lasting monthly topical preventative against fleas and ticks - just apply once a month.

of the Month,
who wins $100 for the following question:
I have alwaysused topical flea products non Cloey ever since she nwas old enough. This last summer I used Advantage and within about three weeks I had to put it on Cloey again. I found two types of fleas on her some were real teeny black ones and some were nbigger brown ones. The flea stuff worked for only 3 weeks on these fleas. when I used to buy it it used to say on the box works for up to three months and it DID. Have the companies watered the product down so that I have to buy it more...?
