Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole pesticide widely used as insecticide in agriculture and to control ectoparasites in veterinary medicine. Taking into account that wide range of applications, its main pharmacological features and toxicity need to be known. This paper discusses how this pesticide is used, its physicochemical properties, its degradation in the environment, its biotransformation and elimination in mammals, its mechanism of action, as well as its toxicity.

Keywords: Ectoparasiticide. Fipronil. Pesticide. Toxicity.
