How does Panoramis for small dogs work?
Spinosad, an active ingredient in Panoramis, starts to work within 30 minutes to kill fleas and has been proven to kill 100% of all biting fleas within 4 hours. Panoramis also kills flea eggs before they can mature, which helps to end the flea life cycle. Panoramis prevents heartworm disease by killing microfilariae and larvae from maturing into adult heartworms.
Serious adverse reactions have been reported following concomitant extra-label use of ivermectin with spinosad alone, one of the components of Panoramis chewable tablets. Use with caution in breeding females. The safe use of Panoramis in breeding males has not been evaluated. Use with caution in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy. Puppies less than 14 weeks of age may experience a higher rate of vomiting. Consult your veterinarian for pregnant or lactating dogs.
