US debut for Merial's Certifect
Merial has launched a new flea and tick control treatment for dogs in the US. Certifect is the latest addition to the Frontline family of fipronil-based antiparasitics. The spot-on solution boasts a rapid kill times against fleas and ticks, and gives veterinarians a new treatment option at a time when the incidence of tick-borne diseases in dogs is rising in many parts of the US. The launch could also help Merial defend its market share as its Frontline range faces increasing competition from generics.
