How Effective is Stronghold Plus (Selamectin, Sarolaner)?

Stronghold Plus is highly effective when used as directed. Selamectin targets nerve and muscle cells of parasites, causing paralysis and death, while sarolaner disrupts the nervous system of fleas and ticks. This combination ensures comprehensive protection, eliminating parasites quickly and providing sustained protection for a full month. Clinical studies and veterinarian recommendations support its efficacy for broad-spectrum parasite control.
