Works well on several cats
I use Vectra on 3 indoor pet cats & 3 outdoor community cats. Fleas are reduced to zero in all of them. One of my cats has a serious flea sensitivity reaction, so it's important that my flea control plan is 100% effective. I'm convinced that flea sensitivity to various products is a regional phenomenon.

Don't bother wasting your money
This product is garbage. I hate putting chemicals on my cats and It didn't even work for one minute. I don't know how a company can get away with selling something that doesn't work. My poor cat is still suffering and I can't treat her for another month. BTW advantage stinks too.

I use stuff to control a decades-long flea problem. I was encouraged by the positive reviews but my 2 cats started scratching immediately, and 2 weeks later, I was getting bit. When that happens, you're in the red zone. Time to try something else - FAST.

My cat responds very well and it keeps the fleas off her. I usually only have to treat her during the spring and summer months when fleas are bad outside. We also treat our yard even though she is an indoor cat.

QUESTION
My cat has very fine under coat how do I make sure the vectors gets to his skin
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your e-mail. Vectra for Cats should be applied externally to the skin at the base of the cat's or kittens' head. The medication is to be applied as follows: Part the hair down to the level of the skin and slowly apply the product at the base of the cat's or kitten's head until the tube is completely empty.

What is Vectra for Cats?

Vectra for Cats is an effective, topical solution for cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age, providing control of adult fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae and pupae. It kills fleas within 6 hours of application and protects your cat or kitten from all stages of fleas for one month. This topical solution is quick drying, non-greasy and comes in an easy-to-use applicator. Vectra for Cats kills fleas that may transmit diseases, including bartonellosis, tapeworm, and tularemia.

How does Vectra for Cats work?

Vectra for Cats contains active ingredients that work to keep your cat protected from fleas throughout a whole month. Dinotefuran quickly kills fleas through contact, meaning they don't have to bite your cat to die, and Pyriproxyfen prevents the development of all flea stages.

Cautions:

Vectra for Cats is meant for use only in cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age. Do not use on dogs, and keep out of the reach of children. Do not use on debilitated, aged, medicated, pregnant or nursing animals known to be sensitive to pesticide products without first talking to your veterinarian.
