How quickly does afoxolaner kill fleas and ticks?
After exposure, this medication begins to kill fleas after four hours and ticks after at least 12 hours. Keep in mind that you will likely continue to see fleas on a treated dog for some time, especially if you have a flea infestation in your home. Fleas will continue to hatch and climb onto your dog in search of a blood meal. The fleas death prevents reproduction and new eggs being laid in the home. The more fleas that climb onto the dog and are killed, the faster the infestation will be eliminated.
