Simparica™ (sarolaner) chewables are a safe monthly chewable for dogs that offers persistent protection from fleas and ticks. It is fast-acting and has been shown to kill 95% of fleas within 8 hours and 100% of fleas within 24 hours.
Simparica is used to treat and prevent flea infestations. It is also used to treat and controls tick infestations of lone star ticks, Gulf Coast ticks, American dog tics, black-legged ticks, and brown dog ticks.
Simparica is taken orally through tablet form. After you give your dog Simparica the ingredient sarolaner travels in your dog's blood and quickly reaches tissue fluids just under your dog's skin. As fleas and ticks bite their nervous system becomes over-stimulated and they die.

Simparica works fast. It starts killing fleas within 3 hours and ticks within 8 hours and it keeps killing them for the full month.
The great thing about Simparica is that your dog is covered for an extra 4-5 days if you are a few days late with your monthly treatment date. Simparica has continuous killing activity for 35 days so it keeps going strong between doses, unlike some of the other products available. This extra coverage keeps the dog protected for the 4 out of 5 owners who admit to giving the treatment late. See how it compares against other popular treatments in our competitor section.
Yes. Simparica can be given to your dog any time of the day as it can be given with or without food.
Fleas can live in a variety of areas outside of your home as well as on other dogs that your dog may encounter. Simparica provides flea protection that works fast and lasts for a full month, so any newly arrived fleas will be killed. There’s no need to re-treat your dog until the next monthly dose is due.
As fleas begin to die they will start to move around erratically as they start to lose their coordination, resulting in a transient increase in scratching behavior of your dog. Simparica starts killing fleas within 3 hours with 100% eliminated within 8 hours providing a fast resolution for your dog.
Immediately. Simparica can be given directly before or after bathing or swimming. Bathing, shampooing or swimming will not affect how well Simparica works.
