Protect Your Cats From Fleas All Year Round With New Vectra for Cats(R)
Date:10/31/2008

FORT LEE, N.J., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- As temperatures start to cool down in the fall, pet owners sometimes feel more relaxed about the need for using flea control products on their pets. This is a false sense of security.

According to Dr. George G. Doering, who is a dermatology specialist at the Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital in northern California, "The weather in California is conducive to fleas all year round, so I highly recommend year-round flea protection on both outdoor and indoor cats. Our winters in California, do not get cold enough to hold flea populations down outside, so we have cases of cats with fleas that come in all year. Fleas can be out on Christmas day and July 4th. Throughout the year, I have multiple cases where indoor cats come into my office with fleas. The owner or another pet may have brought fleas from the outside, or the cat could have gotten fleas from walking past the screen door. Definitely pet owners should be protecting pets from fleas year-round."

Recently, a new line of flea control topicals, Vectra for Cats(R) and Vectra(R) for Cats & Kittens, has begun appearing in veterinarian clinics. Dr. Doering, who has been practicing dermatology in the Bay area since 1988, has been impressed with its results.

"The Vectra(R) line of flea preventative topicals uses an effective combination of a new active ingredient, dinotefuran, which has not previously been used in flea control products, according to Michael Coyne, DVM, Manager of Veterinary Services, Summit VetPharm. Vectra kills adult fleas in six hours, and kills emerging fleas before they lay eggs. The combination of dinotefuran with an insect growth regulator (IGR), pyriproxyfen, effectively controls the development of all immature flea stages: eggs, larvae and pupae for one month."

"Vectra(R) has the quick-kill of adult fleas and a new insecticide which means that fleas should not be resistant, says Dr. Doering. And, the IGR in the product also has an
