Sentinel® Spectrum® is a once-a-month chewable tablet that contains a combination of milbeycin oxime, praziquantel, and lufenuron to prevent and control fleas, heartworm and intestinal worms in dogs. Milbemycin oxime interferes with nerve transmission and helps protect against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm, and whipworm. Praziquantel causes muscle spasms and kills tapeworms. Lufenuron is an insect growth regulator, which is used to control fleas by breaking the flea lifecycle in both the egg and larval stages.
