OMAHA, Neb. — Sergeant's Pet Care Products has launched a generic version of a commonly used spray for killing fleas and ticks in dogs and cats, the company said Tuesday.
Sergeant's announced the launch of Pronyl, a version of Sanofi's Frontline. Pronyl uses the same active ingredient, Fipronil, but also uses what the company calls Bag-on-Valve technology that allows a continuous and quiet spray from any angle.
"The new spray is another way we can meet the needs that pet owners are expressing clearly," Sergeant's VP marketing Caryl Stichler said. "They want products with active ingredients they know from veterinary products, but they also want more cost-effective options and the convenience of purchasing these products over the counter at retail."
