WHY ISN’T MY FLEA MEDICATION WORKING?

Fleas have been around a long time. They are very good at adapting. We have found that Vectra is the most effective flea medication on the market right now. It is very safe. What makes it unique is that if the flea touches your pet, the flea’s feet start to burn. They jump off before they bite your pet which helps decrease the chance your pet will itch. The unique applicator is easy to open and insures you get the medication directly on the skin. Your pet will appreciate it has no odor.

Remember that every animal must be treated with Vectra on the same day. You must apply Vectra every month all year long. Many people make the mistake of stopping the Vectra “because we don’t see fleas”. The reason you don’t see fleas is because the Vectra is working. Keep up with the Vectra every month to help your animal remain flea free.

The only way animals get tapeworms is to eat a flea infected with a tapeworm. Please call a vet clinic for tapeworm medication as there is nothing in the grocery store or pet store that will be effective for tapeworms.
