Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Love this stuff. Cleared up an issue that I had fighting for months in very little time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought this for my cats per a friend's recommendation. It worked great, for a week. Now my cat has a flea infestation and I can't treat her for a month. I've treated the home as well.

Questions

Does this product work on ticks as well. The description does not mention it.

Asked by: Jodi
It looks like this product is not effective against ticks. 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 only. It kills fleas within 6 hours of application and protects your cat or kitten from all stages of fleas for one month.

My cat has very fine under coat how do I make sure the vectors gets to his skin

Asked by: Peanut
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.
