Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Waste Your Money Have used this twice on my 4 small dogs. It works for about 2 weeks and then they are covered in flea dirt and the eggs start hatching. Used it because it was cheaper. Now I know why.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbearable Itching I have used Vectra 3D in the past and it had never caused any issues with my dogs before. I’m not sure if they changed the formula since the last time I used it but it caused a terrible reaction on my dogs this time. I applied it like normal and noticed that my dogs were itching even more afterwards. They didn’t have any fleas or ticks so it was not due to that. I looked at reviews and saw that the company has responded to other people who had the same issue, saying that it is normal and the medicine spreading across the skin can make them itch. But it went on for 3 days. Both of my dogs were crying in frustration. It was like they wanted to crawl out of their skin it was so unbearably itchy. It was so sad to watch them so I gave them a bath with an anti-itch oatmeal shampoo. That still didn’t help. I called my vet and asked for any suggestions they might have, they said to wash them with Dawn Soap. Finally they had some relief! I will never use this flea medicine on them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on my dogs I have been using this for years and have never had one flea or tick on any of my 3 dogs. We have a campground with dense woods and ticks. My dogs play in the woods and never get any ticks. It works great on my dogs. It is greasy though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Have been using this product for almost 4 years now and have never found a flea or tick on either one of my dogs. I love that it works as a repellent too. They do get a greasy stripe down their back so I put it on them a day or 2 before their next bath and that takes care of that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Treatment Ever ! Bought this anticipating that it would work, absolutely did not. Followed directions given and it worked for 3 days ! Flea shampoo would have worked better, an absolute waste of hard earned money.1 star but should be -1

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best flea and tick repellant ever I have been using this for years! I have never once had a problem with fleas or ticks on my dogs using this product. It has also helped one of my dogs to not swell up from mosquito or dee fly bites anymore because it seems to repel those great too! Highly suggested !!! I’m glad they started selling this online because at regular price, it’s $100 cheaper than at the vet clinic in my area !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product It came highly recommended from the rescue where we adopted our dog, and it works great. Our vet also agreed it works, and we are seeing the results. Our French Bulldog has been flea/tick free, and even though she has short hair, it does not make her coat greasy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works on fleas! Living in S Fl we have fleas year round. I was using Frontline but ended up with a nasty infestation that took me 3 months of vigorous cleaning to get rid of. I walk my dogs in the neighborhood never take them to dog parks or board them. My vet said fleas build up resistance to formulas and we have a severe infestation that year. He recommended Vectra and it works beautifully on my Yorkie. I gave it 4 stars b/c I think it makes her nauseous she doesn’t want to eat that day but resolved that by dividing the dose, 1/2 dose then 12 hours later other 1/2. No more fleas!!

How long do I need to wait after I bathe my dog before applying the Vectra. And also how long after applying the Vectra do I need to wait before I can bathe again. And if I do have to bathe him after applying the Vectra does it reduce the efficacy of it. 

Asked by: Dixielea
Vectra 3D® should be applied to dry skin. Avoid superficial application to your dog’s hair. Swimming and bathing should not interfere with efficacy. However, It is recommended to avoid bathing your dog for at least 48 hours after application.

Side effects on human skin

Asked by: cunning04
Thank you for your question. This product can be absorbed through the skin. The manufacturer recommends taking off contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. If skin appears irritated contact your physician.

How long does this take to dry? The one I currently use dries in 6-8 hours and I'm looking for something that dries in a shorter amount of time.

Asked by: PupperMom
Keep a dog and cat separated for 2-6 hours, which is the time it takes for Vectra 3D to dry. You may want to avoid petting your dog until the product is dry. It works well to apply the product at night before bedtime or to kennel the dog for 2-6 hours after applying...

What is Vectra 3D?

Vectra 3D is a topical solution for dogs and puppies over 8 weeks old, providing effective control of fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes for a month. It is an over-the-counter topical that begins reducing flea feeding in just 5 minutes. Vectra 3D repels and kills ticks (Brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, Deer ticks, Gulf Coast ticks, and Lone Star ticks) that may transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, bartonellosis, hepatozoonosis, and anaplasmosis for one month. It also repels and kills fleas that can cause flea allergy dermatitis, mosquitoes that may transmit vector-borne disease, biting and sand flies, lice, and mites for one month. Vectra 3D also prevents all flea stages (eggs, pupae, larvae, and adult fleas) from developing. The long-lasting topical remains effective after bathing and swimming.

For:

Dogs and puppies (8+ weeks of age, weighing 5+ lbs)

Benefits:

  • Repels and kills fleas, ticks (Brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, Deer ticks, Gulf Coast ticks, and Lone Star ticks), mosquitoes, biting and sand flies, lice, and mites for one month
  • Prevents all flea stages from developing
  • Starts to reduce flea feeding in just 5 minutes
  • Easy application
  • Quick drying, non-greasy, and waterproof
  • Fast-acting and long-lasting

How does Vectra 3D work?

Vectra 3D is a fast-acting topical that kills parasites through contact, meaning they don't have to bite your dog to die. The active ingredients combined work to keep your dog protected throughout a whole month. Dinotefuran quickly kills fleas, Pyriproxyfen prevents the development of all flea stages, and Permethrin repels and kills ticks, flies, mosquitoes, and mites. The bioadhesives in Vectra 3D allow it to bond the active ingredients to the skin, which help the ingredients move across the skin following application and preventing the product from easily washing off.

Cautions:

Vectra 3D is meant for use only in dogs and puppies over 8 weeks of age. Do not use on cats, and keep out of reach of children. If there is a cat in the household, make sure to separate your cat from your treated dog for 24 hours. Also, don't allow children to have contact with treated areas until the applicated areas are completely dry. Do not get into eyes or on clothing and avoid contact with skin. Do not use Vectra 3D on debilitated, aged, medicated, pregnant or nursing dogs, or dogs known to be sensitive to pesticide products without first consulting a veterinarian.
