Vectra 3D Flea Control Review
When choosing a flea control product Vectra 3D flea control seems to be popular, but it depends on who you are. Although proven to work, there are also claims that this Summit VetPharm manufactured product could be dangerous to smaller dogs and cats.
Vectra 3D flea control has three main ingredients Pyriproxyfen, Dinotefuran, and Permethrin. Many dog owners have reported that they are happy with the product, but many others like us are concerned with Permethrin being very dangerous if you have cats or smaller dogs.
When ingested by cat who grooms your dog, Vectra 3D flea control medicine can make the cat extremely sick. Also readers have reported to us that smaller dogs, particularly shih tzus, may have adverse reactions to Vectra 3D. We suggest that if you have a combination of cats and dogs like many of us, then you may want to avoid this product because you don’t want them grooming each other and ingesting the medicine.
Vectra 3D flea control is actually cheaper that other brands by about $10 to $15. The application is much easier, but we would suggest wearing gloves when applying any meds to your pet.
Included with the Vectra 3D are helpful stickers to put on your calendar to help remind you when it is time to reapply. Summit VetPharm makes a whole family of Vectra flea control products for both cats and dogs
While veterinarians may suggest Vectra 3D, what we’ve found did not fully live up to our standards for every pet.
Vectra 3D flea control can only be bought through your veterinarian. Once again, if you have a small dog or cat we do not recommend using this product just to be on the safe side. Fully discuss any questions you have with your vet and make sure whether this is the right flea control medicine for your dog. Vectra 3D flea control does kill the fleas and also protects against mosquitoes and ticks, but depending upon your situation, there may be safer options out there.
