Credelio Tablets are used for the treatment of flea and tick infestations on cats. Credelio provides immediate and persistent killing activity for 1 month against fleas (Ctenocephalides felis and C. canis) and ticks (Ixodes ricinus). Fleas and ticks must attach to the host and commence feeding in order to be exposed to the active substance. Credelio can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Contraindications Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Special warnings for each target species Parasites need to start feeding on the host to become exposed to lotilaner; therefore the risk of the transmission of parasite borne diseases cannot be completely excluded. Acceptable levels of efficacy may not be achieved if Credelio is not administered with food or within 30 minutes after feeding.
Due to insufficient data to support efficacy against ticks in young cats, Credelio is not recommended for the treatment of ticks in kittens 5 months of age or younger. Special precautions for use Special precautions for use in animals Safety and efficacy data has been studied in cats aged 8 weeks and older with a body weight of 0.5 kg or more. Therefore, use of Credelio in kittens younger than 8 weeks of age or less than 0.5 kg of body weight should be based on a benefit-risk assessment by the responsible veterinarian. Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals Wash hands after handling the product. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or label to the physician.
For optimal control of tick and flea infestations, Credelio should be administered at monthly intervals and continued throughout the flea and/or tick season based on local epidemiological situations. For fleas, the onset of efficacy is within 12 hours of attachment for one month after Credelio administration. Fleas on the animal prior to administration are killed within 8 hours. For ticks, the onset of efficacy is within 24 hours of attachment for one month after Credelio administration. Existing ticks on the animal prior to administration are killed within 18 hours. Credelio kills existing and newly emerged fleas on cats before they can lay eggs. Therefore, Credelio breaks the flea life cycle and prevents environmental flea contamination in areas to which the cat has access. Pharmacokinetic particulars Following oral administration, Credelio is readily absorbed and peak blood concentration is reached at 4 hours.
Credelio is approximately 10 times more bioavailable when administered with food. The terminal half-life is approximately 4 weeks (harmonic mean). This terminal half-life provides effective blood concentrations for the entire duration of the inter-dosing interval. The major route of elimination is biliary excretion, and renal excretion is the minor route of elimination (less than 10 % of the dose). Lotilaner is metabolized to a small extent into more hydrophilic compounds, which are observed in faeces and urine. Credelio does not require any special storage conditions.
