This agent is a clear, slightly oily liquid, yellowish in color. In veterinary pharmacies and pet stores you will be offered vials with a capacity of 1.0 and 1.4 ml, equipped with a pipette dropper for convenience.
The main active substance of the drug is pyrethroid permethrin. This component has long been used in various household chemical products. It is an effective tool that destroys various creeping insects and parasites. It is equally effective against ticks, fleas, lice, ants, withers, bedbugs, etc.
