Pharmacology and composition of the drug
Drops “Inspector” for dogs belong to the combined antiparasitic drugs for fleas, nematodes, lashes, sarcoptoid, ixodic and demodecous ticks.

- DEMA - 58.8%,
- BHT - 0.1%,

The main active ingredients of the drug are fipronil and mocidectin. Fipronil has a blocking effect on the GABA-dependent receptors of arthropods, which leads to a violation of the transmission of nerve impulses and, as a consequence, paralysis and the subsequent death of parasites. Moxidectin causes disruption of the muscles, which also leads to paralysis and subsequent death of nematodes and ectoparasites.
As soon as fipronil is on the skin, it is almost not absorbed, spread throughout the body of the animal, fixed on the coat and epidermis. Here he is able to maintain his action for a long time. Moxidectin, on the contrary, is rapidly absorbed, getting into the circulatory system, organs and tissues. Excreted from the body unchanged along with faeces.
The drug protects the animal after the first treatment from fleas for 6 weeks, from ticks for 4 weeks.

Reviews of drugs from dog breeders
Evgenia, Surgut. Every summer we leave the whole family to the country. Our Linda, though she is a titled beauty and a participant in many exhibitions, also loves this period. After all, it is at the dacha that she can run about the territory near the house. The only drawback is that she inevitably meets with yard dogs, who gladly share with her their "property" - fleas. There was only one flea drug in the nearest store - Inspector. At your own risk, you had to take it without consulting a doctor. The remedy turned out to be wonderful. Blochs were brought out and were able to sleep well before the end of summer, knowing that our Lyndochka is under reliable protection.
Tamara, Birobidzhan. Ice is quite an active pet who lives in our apartment. He is one of the large breeds of dogs that need constant movement - Hungarian Kuvas. Therefore, three times a day, we take him to an open-air cage, where he meets with other confreres. Naturally, from time to time we bring home fleas, and sometimes ticks.
