Flea4X for Dogs Review (discontinued)
Sometimes it seems like the search for a good flea treatment is never going to end.
Your poor dog is either itchy from fleas or from the reaction to the flea medicine and it seems like every product is worse than the one before it.
We here at fixfleas have a goal, though. We’re going to search every flea treatment on the market to help you find the one that’s best for you!
Flea4X is one of the few spot on flea controls that users actually seem to like so today we/re going to take a look at it to see what’s in it and what it may do for you.
Flea4X is PetMed’s generic answer to Frontline Plus. According to the hype, Flea4X kills and repels the following:
This is a great range because these parasites cause a range of illnesses and conditions such as sarcoptic mange, Lyme disease and dermatitis.
The treatments comes in a 3-month supply packaged in individual doses.
How it Works
Fipronil is the main ingredient in many of the leading prescription flea treatments. It’s less water-soluble than most other ingredients so it can last longer than other pesticides. It works by acting as a neurotoxin that interrupts pathways to the brain and causes hyperexcitability that leads to death.
Because the fleas get hyper before they die, it may seem as if your dog has more fleas but what’s actually happening is that the ones that were hiding in his fur are just reacting to the fipronil before they die.
