Q: Can Vectra 3D® be used on pets other than dogs?
No. Do not use Vectra 3D® on cats, or any other animal.
Q: Do parasites have to bite in order for Vectra 3D® to work?
No. Vectra 3D® kills fleas and ticks through contact with your pet's fur. No biting necessary.
Q: Does Vectra 3D® control other parasites besides fleas and ticks?
Certainly. The active ingredients of Vectra 3D® are proven to protect your dog from the six major vectors: Fleas, Ticks, Mosquitoes, Flies, Mites* and Lice. (*Excluding mange mites.)
Q: How does Vectra 3D® kill fleas and ticks on my dog?
Vectra 3D® protects because of the triple-action formula of Dinotefuran, Pyriproxifen and Permethrin. These ingredients work together to kill fleas and ticks on contact and repel these dangerous parasites by causing a "hot foot" reaction - once parasites land on your dog, they are physically compelled to crawl back up the fur, away from the skin, without biting.
Q: How quickly does Vectra 3D® begin to work?
Clinical studies have shown that on dogs treated with the active ingredients in Vectra 3D®, flea feeding is reduced within five minutes and fleas are killed in 6 hours.
Q: Is it okay for my pet to bathe or swim after applying Vectra 3D®?
Sure. Vectra 3D® remains effective controlling fleas and ticks for a full month if your pet is immersed in water through swimming or regular bathing.
Q: Is it okay to apply Vectra 3D® more than once a month?
No, only apply Vectra 3D® once in a 30-day period. It is not necessary for more frequent applications - Vectra 3D® provides powerful protection against fleas and ticks for a full month!
Q: What age does my dog need to be before I can apply Vectra 3D®?
Vectra 3D® can be used on puppies as young as 8 weeks of age.
Q: Where can I buy Vectra 3D®?
Vectra 3D® is only authorized for purchase from your veterinarian. If you come across Vectra 3D® being sold anywhere else, please let us know at 1-800-999-0297.
Q: Why am I still seeing fleas on my dog after applying Vectra 3D®?
The repellency of Vectra 3D® causes fleas and ticks to rise to the surface of your dog's fur coat where they are visible. A happy, healthy flea or tick would much prefer to remain invisible below the fur. Parasites seen on your dog after application are no longer a threat to the animal and are about to perish.
