|This similar product in cats offers many of the same benefits of the dog product in killing mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and lice within an hour. Like Flea4X Plus product, most of the parasites do not have the bite the pet to be effective and are killed on contact. This helps minimize risk of allergic contact reactions of the pet on exposure to these parasites. As with Flea4x Plus, I give this product an overall review of 4 with an efficacy and ease of use of a 4.5
|I find that the effective combination of an ingredient like fipronil, along with the insect growth regulator methoprene, provides the best spectrum of activity and protection against all stages of the flea life cycle from egg through larval stage on to adult. Because of these two main ingredients and their method of action, I find that clients don't have to treat the environment as much. I find that this product tends to be safer in smaller breed animals when compared to its competition. I find its tick efficacy quite good. The fact that it is waterproof also allows clients, whose pets swim frequently, to confidently use this product during the swimming months. I also find that this product works the longest for fleas, while some of the competitive products have to be reapplied before the end of the month. The lack of label efficacy against mosquitoes and flies, as well as the fact that this product does not repel fleas or ticks are the two main disadvantages. As with any insecticidal products, I find that every pet is an individual, in terms of which of the products works best on them. When I am dealing with more of a flea issue in a patient, this is the product I will likely reach for first.
