Indications: Program flavor tabs are labeled for use in dogs and puppies, six weeks of age and older, for the prevention and control of flea populations.
Description: The active ingredient of Program flavor tabs is lufenuron. As an insect development inhibitor, Program flavor tabs does not kill adult fleas but effectively and safely controls flea populations on your pet through a mode of action which breaks the flea’s life cycle at the egg stage. Program works by sterilizing the female flea. When she lays eggs, they will not hatch, breaking the cycle of fleas, where they start. You must treat all of the dogs and cats in the house with Program in order for this treatment to be effective. If you already have a flea infestation, Program will bring it under control. You can prevent flea infestation by giving Program before you see fleas. Program also comes in a suspension form for cats.
A New Weapon in the fight against Ringworm.
A report published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association indicated that the flea killer medication, Program, (Lufenuron) appeared to be affective against fungus & in particular Ringworm (Microsporum canis), in infected dogs. Traditionally, fungal infections have been treated with the drugs griseofulvin and ketoconazole. Program is used in veterinary medicine as a flea control treatment, administered orally once per month. This is an exciting discovery that may mean Program will become the single best ringworm killer/control that has yet to be discovered. Program is easy to administer - just a single pill given orally once a month. And it is inexpensive & available without prescription.
Effectiveness: initial reports indicate Program works quickly, giving negative cultures in as little as 8 days!
Safety: Program exhibits no drug interactions, so is safe for use on older pets, pets with liver or renal problems, or pets on any medication for diabetes or antibiotics. There is no bio-accumulation so there is no chance of lufenuron "building up" in the pet and causing a problem in the long term.
