Sergeant’s Pronyl OTC MAX for Cats and Dogs Review
Are you looking for an effective, middle-of-the-road flea and tick treatment?
If so, you’re in good company. Most pet owners battle fleas at one point or another and most of us would rather avoid them than try to get rid of them!
The problem is that monthly flea treatments can get expensive and many of them don’t even work, so it’s just hard-earned money wasted.
Relax now, because we’re here to help you out. Today we’re going to take a look at Sergeant’s Pronyl OTC MAX for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies in order to decide if the product is safe and effective. We’ll take a look at the ingredients and see what real-life users have to say about it so that you can make an educated choice regarding your flea control program.
The claims for this product are fairly simple. They claim that their product kills the following in as little as an hour:
- Flea eggs
They also claim that the product is waterproof and controls reinfestations. It supposedly works for 30 days.
The treatments comes in a 3-month supply packaged in individual doses for small and medium dogs and for cats
How it Works
Both of these are the same ingredients as the spot ons that you get from the vet, including Frontline. Fipronil is a neurotoxin that blocks signals to the insect’s brain and causes death by hyperexcitation It’s also one of the more durable products because it’s supposedly less water-soluble than other 30-day products.
Methoprene is a growth inhibitor that keeps the larvae and eggs from maturing so that they can’t bite and breed.
What Are Users Saying?
The majority of people who use this products (both cat and dog owners) are happy with it. There are people who report that it doesn’t work but they are the minority. There were also a handful of people who reported that it works wonderfully but caused their dogs to itch. Nobody reported this for cats that I could find.
The price is extremely competitive at $8 or less per dose.
Apply between the shoulder blades of your dog or cat and allow to dry for 24 hours before bathing. Reapply every 4 weeks.
Product Warnings and Side Effects
Your pet may experience irritation at the site of application If this gets bad, wash the area with warm, soapy water. If it doesn’t get better or worsens, contact your vet. You may also notice a white, greasy or powdery substance at the application site the day after you put it on. Just wash off with a sponge.
Pronyl Max OTC seems to be an effective product that will cost less out of pocket than Frontline or other products. The ingredients are good and there are very few negative reports. Overall, we feel comfortable recommending this product for use on healthy dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.
