The launch supports the continued expansion of the Credelio™ franchise, which brings together a range of trusted solutions in Credelio™ tick and flea tablets for dogs, Credelio™ tiny tablets specially formulated for cats and now, new Credelio™ Plus for all round parasite protection for dogs. Credelio™ Plus is a tasty, monthly, chewable tablet for dogs, providing protection against a variety of common parasitic species, including fleas, ticks, roundworm, lungworm, heartworm, hookworm and whipworm. Licensed for puppies as young as 8 weeks and weighing as little as 1.4 kg, Credelio™ Plus brings together two active ingredients, offering trusted worm control with milbemycin oxime plus immediate and persistent tick and flea kill with lotilaner. “Pets and owners have different habits and lifestyles, which affects their preferences for parasite products,” said William Hawker, Marketing Manager, Companion Animal Parasiticides, Elanco UK/Ireland. “Credelio™ Plus completes our parasiticide portfolio for Elanco and enables us to partner with vets to offer trusted solutions and support, for every pet’s lifestyle.” Making sure dogs are protected from internal and external parasites should be simple, convenient and fit with the different lifestyles of owners and their pets. <img src="https://assets-eu-01.kc-usercontent.com/7d1fb288-b93d-015d-f61e-abc4dbdfe522/4db00a03-5ce7-4185-b865-b29f98f3a1a2/MicrosoftTeams-image %285%29.png"></img> “As a companion animal vet, one of the common challenges I see from pet owners is the need to remember and administer multiple treatments to cover a variety of parasites,” said Dr Cat Henstridge. “So a simple, easy-to-remember treatment will be welcomed by my clients who need a combination solution to protect their dogs from ticks, fleas and worms.” Elanco’s parasite offering expanded rapidly following its acquisition of Bayer Animal Health last year, when Credelio™ and Milbemax™ were joined by Advocate®, Advantix®, Advantage® and Seresto®. This expanded portfolio presents a parasite treatment for every lifestyle with the option of tablets, collars or spot-ons, meaning practices can now match the most convenient solutions to best suit their clients and their pets. <img src="https://assets-eu-01.kc-usercontent.com/7d1fb288-b93d-015d-f61e-abc4dbdfe522/952f4b93-e6fa-4530-8f02-b5c4f84554cb/MicrosoftTeams-image %284%29.png" height="400" align="center"></img> “The launch of Credelio™ Plus represents another exciting evolutionary leap for Elanco’s parasiticide portfolio”, said Tina Hunt, General Manager of Elanco UK/Ireland. “Elanco is a world leader in parasitology, and we are proud to develop products like Credelio™ Plus that offer a real benefit for our vet partners, their clients, and the pets they love.” <strong>Into a new era, with Major Tim Peake</strong> <img src="https://assets-eu-01.kc-usercontent.com/7d1fb288-b93d-015d-f61e-abc4dbdfe522/ee4970c5-1ad0-4230-84f6-a84d8cf0dc4f/Credelio Plus Event Thumbnail_2021-07-05.jpg"></img> To mark the exciting launch of Credelio™ Plus and in anticipation of veterinary teams and clients reconnecting post-lockdown, Elanco recently hosted the launch event: “Into a new era”, a one-time exclusive event featuring a keynote presentation from Major Tim Peake.

The event also included a presentation from Cat Henstridge, better known to her online followers as 'Cat The Vet', about the power of wider veterinary teams working ‘better together’ to support each other, and how practices can start to reconnect with their clients following lockdown.
