Now a days with our fast paced life and added duties we do not spare time to take a look at our pets. It is a common belief that every household these days is home to a cat or a dog. However if not taken care of in the proper way these pets can become the breeding grounds for ticks and fleas. There a number of leas and tick treatment products that are available in the market that are efficient in doing this job. Added to this array of products is the new Vectra- 3D dog and cat flea treatment product.
Let us first take a look at the vectra- 3D dog product:
The new Vectra-3D contains active ingredients like dinotefuran, permethrin and pyriproxifen. This product can be applied once a month and it guarantees long lasting flea control. It basically lowers the presence of flea eggs by destroying them as soon as they are formed thereby deterring the growth of fleas. The permethrin added acts as a repellant and provided efficient tick control. Pyriproxifen is added to enable good flea control. Once you apply this product the action is very swift. However take care not to apply this product on cats as it contains a high level of permethrin that is harmful to them. The reason not to apply this product to cats is because cats are terrific groomers of themselves and application of this product on their body will be harmful to them. They also have a very powerful digestive system that enables them to assimilate anything they eat hence the required precautions have to be take.
Vectra for cats and kittens:
The Vectra cat and kitten product is one that is specially designed for use only on feline pets. This product is very good for the treatment of fleas and ticks and proves to be a deterrent for flea growth for 30 days after initial application. The reaction time of the product is so swift that after six hours you see the fleas and tick dropping dead on your floor. This formula prevents the growth of fleas by destroying the eggs so that re infestation is not possible. It is gentle and safe and can be used on kittens that are about 8 weeks of age.
If you are using a topical formula take care to see that you pet has been dry for about 24 hours before as well as after the application of the product.
Both these products come in packages that contain unique applicator tips and specially contoured shapes that make it easier for the application of this product. You should take care to see that the household is also disinfected by the routine dusting of your pets bedding and the proper disposal of fecal matter. You should also take care to see that the places where untreated animals roam about are not frequented by your pet as your pet can still pick up fleas and tick. To counter this problem regular and correct applications are required on a monthly basis.
