Adams Flea Shampoo Review

Recommended by veterinarians for over 30 years, Adams Flea Shampoo

is safe enough to use on a regular basis. This shampoo not only kills fleas, ticks, mosquitos and lice, it makes the fur soft and fluffy. Use the shampoo only on cats, kittens, dogs or puppies over 12 weeks old.

Although flea collars, powders and the like have gone out of favor with veterinarians since the advent of prescription flea medication, most veterinarians still find no harm in using a flea shampoo as part of a prevention routine.

According to the label on the manufacturer’s website, the shampoo’s active ingredient is pyrethrin at 0.15%. It also contains piperonyl butoxide, technical 1.5%, N-Octyl bicyclopheptene 0.50%, and dicarboximide 97.85%. It restores the natural luster of the coat and lasts between 3-4 weeks. Additionally, it can be used as a flea preventative or as part of a maintenance program. More than one application may be necessary for severe flea infestations.

Users of the shampoo were generally happy with the results of the product and would recommend it and planned to use it again. The shampoo does kill fleas, ticks and lice. It also leaves the pet’s coat shiny and free of any odors. The shampoo itself is concentrated, so it lasts longer. It lathers and rinses easily and smells fresh, not medicine-like. Pet owners also report that this shampoo is very gentle, even on raw, irritated skin.

On the downside, a very few users claimed that the shampoo had no effect whatsoever and would not recommend it. One common problem cited by users is that the fleas can re-attach themselves right after the pet comes out of the bath, and it does not kill flea eggs. All of the pet owners, including the those that liked the product, said that it was not a substitute for internal or topical medications available today. One final issue with Adams flea shampoo is that you have to leave it on the pet for five minutes. Anyone who has ever bathed a dog or cat knows what a feat this can be.

Adams flea shampoo claims to kill fleas, ticks, lice and mosquitos, be safe enough to use as a pet’s regular shampoo and to restore the coat’s natural luster. Most consumers who have used Adams recommend it and would use it again. The product does not irritate raw skin, cause burns or otherwise harm pets. We recommend Adams Flea Shampoo as part of an overall flea preventative program that includes other topical or internal flea prevention products.

    I started to used Adams flea and tick shampoo on my cats after one of my cats feel ill and died from hartz …. But now my newest member has had bad side effects I gave her a bath and ever since she has lost her balance and is struggling to walk I wonder if the product poisoned her so now I’m having to take her in to see if she’ll make it. But overall I never had a problem until now.

    I bought this product to use on my adult dog and cat due to fleas, and sadly our cat passed away 48 hours after we used this product. The cat was otherwise healthy and has never been sick. Please do not use this product on small dogs or cats.

    Do not use this product. It killed my 7 yr old Norwegian Poly last night. I am sickened by this. He’s had baths before (for fleas) this product did NOT kill his fleas, but put him into cardiac arrest. He died in my arms, before I had time to seek medical help. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Had an infested cat that died but left the all the fleas to hang around the house. I started using Adams flea shampoo on my poor dog that took the brunt of the flea feast after the cat parted. This shampoo killed fleas during the first application. Dog’s coat was beautifiul and the dog smelled great! Started using the 30 day flea Frontline drops on the dog too.
    Even with this, the flea problem was so bad, we had to bomb the house twice and spay nitch areas with a product that contained egg and larva growth inhibitors to finally get everything finished off and be flea free.
    My error was to bath the dog about once a week or more because of the flea sightings that continued during our 4-6 week battle. I was wahing off the Frontline.
    Though Adamns shampoo is a great augment to the flea battle and it cleans, smeels nice, and last for 3-4 weeks between bathes, overduing it can negate your other flea protection stategies.
    I will continue to buy Adams flea shampoo for my animals.
