The key to controlling fleas is to consistently break their life cycle at the egg stage so they don’t develop into adult fleas. While topical flea control products kill adult fleas, SENTINEL® (milbemycin oxime/lufenuron) Flavor Tabs® target fleas at the egg stage, before they ever develop into larvae. One of the active ingredients in SENTINEL® Flavor Tabs® is ingested by the flea in the blood meal and passed to the developing egg, where it kills the eggs and larvae. SENTINEL® Flavor Tabs® are the only oral once-a-month flavor tab that protects against five common parasites, including fleas. Combined with a short-term treatment with CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) Tablets, SENTINEL® Flavor Tabs® help you beat fleas at multiple stages of their life cycle, killing both the fleas you see and the ones you don’t.
Dogs must be tested for heartworm prior to using SENTINEL® (milbemycin oxime/lufenuron) Flavor Tabs®. In a small percentage of dogs, digestive, neurological and skin side effects may occur. In a 90 day safety study, the combination use of SENTINEL® Flavor Tabs® and CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) Tablets was well tolerated. Click here for a full product insert.
