PRAC-TIC is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea and tick infestations, and as part of a treatment strategy for FAD (dermatitis flea allergy).
Description and Composition
The active ingredient of PRAC-TIC is pyriprole. Each ml contains 125 mg of pyriprole as a clear, colorless solution.
Pyriprole is an insecticide and acaricide. Acts through interaction with the ligand-gated chloride channels, particularly those controlled by the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), blocking pre- and post-synaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. This results in uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and death of fleas and ticks.
Parasites are killed through contact rather than systemic exposure.
After pyriprole topical administration is rapidly distributed in the hair coat of dogs within one day after application. Can be found on the hair throughout the treatment interval.
Treatment and prevention of flea infestation (Ctenocephalides canis and C. felis) in dogs. Insecticidal efficacy duration against new infestations with fleas persists for a minimum of 4 weeks. PRAC-TIC can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).
Treatment and prevention of infestations with ticks (Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes scapularis, Dermacentor reticulatus, Dermacentor variabilis, Amblyomma americanum) in dogs. PRAC-TIC has persistent acaricidal efficacy duration of 4 weeks against ticks.

Special Precautions and Warnings
Prac-tic is spot-on application only. No administered orally or by any other means.
Care should be taken to avoid contact of PRAC-TIC with the eyes of the animal.
It is important to apply the dose to an area where the dog can not lick it off and make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment.
Following treatment, ticks will detach from the host within 24 to 48 hours after infestation, however, it is possible that some remain in the animal. For this reason, a transmission of infectious diseases by ticks can not be completely excluded.
