Stronghold works because it is absorbed through the skin into the blood stream. It is transported through the whole body by the blood, killing parasites everywhere. Some of it is absorbed into the sebaceous glands in the skin. These glands then pass the Stronghold out onto the surface of the skin over a period of about a month, maintaining the flea killing effect over the whole surface of the skin. The activity against fleas is even more amazing than that. It seems that debris from the animals coat fall onto the floor and is effective against flea larvae developing in the environment. This is very important because by the time you see fleas on your pet, there will usually be many more developing from larvae under carpets, etc, in home. These fleas are not usually seen, but they make it very difficult to treat a flea infestation. This ability of Stronghold to treat the environment as well as the animals adds to its effectiveness.
The agent can be used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis and through its ovicidal and larvicidal effects, it can help to control the infestation of fleas in the pet's surroundings.
Stronghold may be safely administered to animals infected with adult heartworms. However, it is recommended in accordance with good veterinary practice, that all animals 6 months of age who live in countries where a vector exists should be examined before treatment with Stronghold to an existing infection with heartworms.
