eatures a triple-action formula that provides quick killing of fleas in 2 hours and is proven to kill adult fleas within 6 hours, while controlling all immature stages of the flea life cycle (eggs, larvae, pupae). Vectra 3D repels and kills ticks, including those that transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever; repels and kills mosquitoes, including those that transmit West Nile virus; and repels and kills sand flies, lice and mites that may cause leishmaniasis, severe dermatitis, and 'walking' dandruff. When applied monthly to dogs, the Vectra 3D(R) quick-drying formula keeps on working, even after bathing or swimming.
"Fleas can be difficult to control because the majority of the flea life stages, approximately 95 percent, thrive as eggs, larvae and pupae," according to Professor Byron Blagburn, PhD, College of Veterinary Medicine, Auburn University. "The combination of a flea adulticide with an insect growth regulator (IGR) that controls immature flea stages is a real advantage, because it works more effectively, with less resistance. Year-round protection is advised."
Anemia, flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), skin infections, bartonellosis, tapeworm and tularemia are just some of the diseases associated with fleas. Fleas multiply rapidly, and can survive in pet beds, carpets, floors, furniture, closets and other dark corners of a home. Just one female flea can lay 20-50 eggs a day, which can add up to thousands and a full-blown environmental infestation.
Vectra(R) vectoricides protect pets and helps keep households free from parasites and the diseases they may carry. Available only through licensed veterinarians, Vectra(R) products feature a patented applicator design that makes topical application easy, clean and accurate. This one-step applicator allows pet owners to easily get through the pet's fur and ensures the product is properly administered on the skin.
