What are the benefits of using this product?

Kills adult fleas and ticks
Contains conditioner to leave coat soft and manageable

How long will it take for this product to begin to work?
The product should begin to kill fleas within 24-48 hours but may take up to 72 hours to reach its full effectiveness.

What is the difference between this product and oral flea products?
This product is applied to your pet topically and kills fleas through contact with the product on your pet’s skin, so fleas don’t have to bite to die. With oral flea medications, fleas must bite your furry family member and be exposed to the medication in the pet before the fleas are killed.

Can I put a flea and tick collar on the cat after I have applied the shampoo?
No. This will put your pet at risk of an overdose of flea/tick product. This flea product kills fleas and ticks without any other additional flea products.

Can you use oral flea & tick medications with this shampoo product?
No. This will put your pet at risk of an overdose of flea/tick product. This flea product is sufficient in killing fleas and ticks without any other additional flea products.  

How does this product work?
This product combines two active ingredients:

Pyrethrins excite the nervous system of insects that touch or eat it-leading to paralysis and death
Piperonyl Butoxide is a synergist that works with other pesticides to increase their effectiveness

This combination plays a crucial role in existing infestations because insects have enzymes in their bodies that break down some insecticides. Piperonyl Butoxide stops some of these enzymes and allows the insecticides more time to work.
