Frequently Asked Questions
How does PetAction® Plus work?

PPetAction® Plus has two active ingredients: Fipronil and S-methoprene. Fipronil is a fast acting insecticide that kills the fleas on contact. S-Methoprene is an IGR (insect growth inhibitor) that prevents the flea eggs and larvae from developing into biting adults.

How long does it take for PetAction® Plus to start killing fleas and ticks?

As PetAction® Plus is applied, it is absorbed and spread through the sebaceous glands throughout your pet’s skin.  This takes between four and twelve hours depending on the size of the animal.  Once these pesky parasites come in contact with PetAction™ Plus, they will begin dying immediately.

Is PetAction® Plus waterproof?

Yes, PetAction® Plus will keep on working even after bathing or swimming, although it is best to wait for at least 24  hours after application before doing so.  After bathing, make sure your pet is completely dry before applying PetAction™ Plus for best results.

Can I apply PetAction® Plus to my pregnant cat?

Yes,PetAction® Plus is safe for pregnant or lactating cats.  Make sure to use the correct product based on weight.  Do not use dog product on cats or vice versa.

I just applied PetAction® Plus, but I’m seeing more fleas on my cat than ever! Why?

As the fleas die, they rise to the top of your pet’s hair coat where they are more visible. Be assured, PetAction® Plus is working!

Will PetAction® Plus take care of all my flea problems?

Although fleas lay their eggs on your pet, they soon fall off of the animal and into your pet’s bedding, carpeting, beneath cushions on furniture, and any other areas your pet sleeps or has access.  These flea eggs and larvae that are in your pet’s environment have not been killed with PetAction® Plus.  It is important to treat those areas by heavy vacuuming (seal and throw away bags) and washing bedding in hot water.  Flea traps, sprays, and cedar chips (fleas hate the smell) are other options.  If you do not treat your pet’s environment, you will miss more than 90% of the developing flea population (eggs, larvae and pupae).  See the life cycle of the flea.

I’ve applied PetAction® Plus, but why do I still have fleas in my home?

PetAction® Plus will get rid of the fleas on your cat and will break the flea cycle to control eggs and larvae for up to three months.  However, it will not kill the fleas, eggs and larvae in your pet’s environment.  It is important to treat your pet’s environment by heavy vacuuming (seal and throw away bags) and washing bedding in hot water.  If you do not treat your pet’s environment, you will miss more than 90% of the developing flea population (eggs, larvae and pupae).  See the life cycle of the flea.  Consult your veterinarian for additional suggestions for your particular animal and environment products to treats these areas.
