Frequently Asked Questions
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.

How does PetAction® Plus work?

PetAction® 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.

Can I apply PetAction® Plus to my pregnant dog or cat?

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

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 dog 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.

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 just applied PetAction® Plus, but I’m seeing more fleas on my dog 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!
