Ultimate Guide to Vectra 3D

Meet the Powerful Insect Repellent: Vectra 3D!

Vectra 3D is a veterinarian-approved dog medication that protects your dogs from fleas, ticks, and mosquitos. The monthly topical solution has a broad spectrum of activity against external parasites of dogs. Vectra 3D ensures that your pup is in the best lovable condition that he or she can be.

How does Vectra 3D work?

Vectra 3D is an effective medical combination with three active ingredients: Dinotefuran, Pyriproxyfen, and Pyrethrin. Vectra 3D repels dangerous parasites fleas, ticks, mosquitos, lice, mites, and flies only through contact and are physically compelled to crawl back up the fur. They will eventually die from contact with the active ingredients.

Dinotefuran disrupts the insect's nervous system by inhibiting the receptor that affects the nerve, skeletal, and muscular communication. Permethrin is an adulticide that kills ticks, adult fleas, mosquitos, lice, mites, and other insects on contact. As an insect growth regulator (IGR), pyriproxyfen prevents flea larvae to hatch and then live properly.

However, if any of the ingredients are ingested, you may see various effects from poisoning or toxicity: vomiting, excessive drooling (from licking the bitter product), gagging or hacking (if the product is stuck in their throat), vomiting, agitation, or tremors.

Any toxic or serious skin reactions require you to contact your regular or emergency veterinarian clinic.

How is the Vectra 3D topical solution administered?

The Vectra 3D topical solution is applied once a month and protects your dog for the next 30 days. Use Vectra 3D's patent applicator to squeeze the solution's contents between a dog's shoulder blades. Each monthly dosage has the same percentage of its 3 active ingredients: dinotefuran (4.95%), pyriproxyfen (0.44%), & permethrin (36.08%).

See below for the four weight options and the amount of the formula per monthly dosage:

Weight Fluid Ounces (fl. oz.) per Dosage Milliliter (mL) per Dosage
2.5 - 20 lbs.0.051.6
21 - 55 lbs.0.123.6
56 - 950.164.7
95+0.278.0
What are the precautions of which you should be aware?

Only apply Vectra 3D's solution only when your dog's coat is dry. Once applied, wait two to six hours for the product to dry before bathing. Keep your dog away from any indoor or outdoor area until the topical solution is dried. Vectra 3D posits that it is water-resistant and remains active after bathing or swimming.

The treatment can leave a messy residue on the dog's coat which can end up on hands or furniture. The topical solution may cause a messy residue on the dog's coat, so a recommendation might be to use one-half of the monthly contents, wait for it to dry, and then use the other half.

What are the potential side effects of which you should be aware?

Vectra 3D's most commonly reported reactions are vomiting, diarrhea, intense itchiness, manic behavior, anxiety, chemical burns at the application site, panting, racing heart, or dehydration. If any of these side effects are observed, contact your veterinarian or take your dog to the emergency veterinarian clinic at once.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Is Vectra 3D for cats?

    Vectra 3D was only made to be administered to dogs, and therefore Vectra 3D is not for cats. Permethrin is toxic to cats because their liver can't metabolize the natural substance.

    However, there are cat equivalents to Vectra 3D. For your household or outdoor kitty, look for Revolution Plus for Cats, which is a monthly spot-on solution that treats 6 parasites in 1 topical cream. Capstar Flea Killer for Cats is an over-the-counter daily oral tablet for quick relief for your cat's.

  2. What do the Vectra 3D reviews say?

    Vectra 3D reviews rate 4+ stars out of 5. Most reviewers say that they trust Vectra 3D to protect their small and large furry friends from fleas, ticks, and other external insects. Contact your veterinarian for a check-up if having any concerns or questions about your dog's use of Vectra 3D.

  3. Which dosage of Vectra 3D is for small, medium, or large dogs?

    Once your veterinarian prescribes Vectra 3D, knowing that your dog's weight affects the dosage that you choose. There are monthly topical creams for 5-10 lbs, 11-20 lbs, 21-55 lbs, 56-95 lbs, or 95+ lbs. See the chart above.

  4. How can I prevent the greasy fur after Vectra 3D treatment?

    Reviewers are upset about residue that Vectra 3D and all topical solutions can leave on the dog's coat, human hands, or furniture. Only apply Vectra 3D's solution only when your dog's coat is dry. Once applied, wait two to six hours for the product to dry before bathing. It has been suggested to apply the two halves of the content at different times.

  5. Is Vectra 3D for puppies?

    Vectra 3D can be administered to puppies that are at least 8 weeks old.

  6. How long does it take for Vectra 3D to work?

    Vectra 3D demonstrates a quick onset of activity within 2 hours and kills fleas after 6 hours.

Concluding Thoughts

The most important thing that you should know about Vectra 3D is its power as an excellent monthly insect repellent for dogs from 5 to 95 pounds and above. These dangerous parasites will be physically compelled to exit the dog's area once it has contact and eventually will ruin their nervous system from larva to adult.

How do you treat external parasites in dogs?
Answer

Treating external parasites in dogs typically involves a combination of preventive measures, medication, and regular grooming. Fleas are treated using a variety of methods, including topical or oral medications specifically designed to kill fleas. These medications often contain insecticides or insect growth regulators that disrupt the flea life cycle. In severe infestations, your veterinarian may recommend additional treatments such as flea baths, sprays, or environmental control measures to eliminate fleas from your dog's surroundings. Ticks can be removed by carefully grasping them near the head with tweezers or a tick removal tool and gently pulling them straight out. Avoid twisting or squeezing the tick, as this can increase the risk of disease transmission. It's necessary to remove the entire tick, including the mouthparts. After removal, disinfect the bite area. Additionally, there are various tick preventive products available, such as topical treatments or oral medications, that can kill ticks and prevent infestations. Mites can cause conditions like mange in dogs. Treatment options depend on the specific type of mite and the severity of the infestation. Your veterinarian may prescribe medicated shampoos, dips, topical ointments, or oral medications to kill the mites and manage the symptoms. Some mite infestations may require multiple treatments over several weeks or months. Lice infestations are typically treated with insecticidal shampoos, sprays, or topical treatments specifically designed for dogs. Regular grooming and cleaning of the dog's environment are also crucial to prevent re-infestation. Preventive measures are essential to control external parasites. Regularly use flea and tick preventive products recommended by your veterinarian. These products are available in various forms, including topical spot-on treatments, oral medications, collars, or sprays. Make sure to follow the instructions on the product label and use the appropriate product for your dog's size and weight.

How do dogs get external parasites?
Answer

Dogs can pick up parasites like fleas, ticks, or lice by coming into contact with infested animals. This can occur during social interactions with other dogs, outdoor activities in areas frequented by wildlife, or exposure to stray or feral animals. Parasites can survive in the environment, such as in grass, soil, or animal bedding. Dogs can get infested when they walk or lie down in areas where parasites are present. Fleas and ticks, for example, can be found in parks, wooded areas, or even your own backyard. Some parasites that affect dogs can also infest humans. If a person carries fleas or ticks, they can transfer them to a dog through close contact. Similarly, lice can be transmitted from human to dog and vice versa. Dogs that visit grooming salons or boarding facilities where other animals have stayed can be at risk of acquiring external parasites. If proper preventive measures and hygiene practices are not followed, parasites can be transmitted between dogs in these environments. Some external parasites, such as certain types of mites, can be passed from mother dogs to their puppies during birth or through close contact during the early weeks of life.

How do you control external parasites?
Answer

Controlling external parasites in dogs involves a combination of preventive measures and targeted treatments. Use veterinarian-recommended flea and tick preventives consistently and according to the instructions. These products are available in various forms, such as topical spot-on treatments, oral medications, collars, or sprays. They are designed to kill and repel parasites, preventing infestations from taking hold. Ensure you select the right product for your dog's size, weight, and species, as some products are specifically formulated for dogs and may be harmful to other pets, like cats. Keep your dog's living environment clean and free from parasites. Regularly vacuum carpets, rugs, and upholstery to remove flea eggs and larvae. Wash your dog's bedding and blankets in hot water regularly. If necessary, consider using insecticides or professional pest control services to treat your home or yard to eliminate any existing parasites. Regular grooming sessions provide an opportunity to inspect your dog's coat for any signs of external parasites. Use a fine-toothed flea comb to comb through your dog's fur, paying close attention to areas where parasites commonly hide, such as around the neck, ears, and tail base. Promptly remove any ticks or fleas found on your dog using appropriate tick removal tools or tweezers.

How do I get rid of mites on my dog?
Answer

There are various medications commonly used to treat mite infestations in dogs. Topical treatments are applied directly to the skin and are effective against external parasites. Selamectin is effective against various mites, including Sarcoptes and Demodex mites. It is available in a spot-on formulation and requires monthly application. Amitraz is used to treat demodectic mange. It is usually applied as a diluted dip or spot-on treatment. Amitraz dips are typically done in a veterinary clinic. Lime sulfur is a topical solution that is effective against sarcoptic mange and some forms of demodectic mange. It is applied as a rinse or dip and requires specific instructions for use. Oral medications are administered orally and work systemically to treat mite infestations. Ivermectin is commonly used to treat demodectic mange. It works by killing the mites and may require regular administration over a period of time. Milbemycin Oxime is effective against certain mites, including Demodex mites. It is available in tablet form and is typically given once a month. Bravecto is an oral medication that provides extended protection against fleas and ticks. In some cases, it may also be effective against certain types of mites. In severe cases or when other treatments have been ineffective, injectable medications may be used. These are administered by a veterinarian and can be effective against certain mites, particularly in cases of demodectic mange.

How do you get rid of lice on dogs?
Answer

Medicated shampoos formulated to kill lice and relieve itching can be used. These shampoos typically contain ingredients such as pyrethrins or permethrin. Examples include Adams Plus Flea & Tick Shampoo, Hartz UltraGuard Rid Flea & Tick Shampoo, and Sentry Flea & Tick Shampoo. Topical spot-on treatments are applied directly to the skin between the shoulder blades and provide systemic treatment. While primarily used for fleas and ticks, some spot-on treatments can also be effective against lice. Examples include Frontline Plus, Advantage II, and Revolution. Your veterinarian may prescribe specific medications that are effective against lice. These medications may be in the form of oral tablets or spot-on treatments. Some commonly prescribed options include Selamectin (found in products like Revolution) and Imidacloprid + Moxidectin (found in products like Advantage Multi).

Vectra 3D contains Dinotefuran, pyriproxyfen, and permethrin.

Side effects of Vectra 3D can include, but are not limited to: extreme restlessness and jitteriness, described as anxiety or manic behavior, chemical burns of the skin at the site of application, lethargy, panting, racing heart, dogโ€™s body hot to the touch, loose stool or vomiting, apparent dehydration (excessive water drinking)

To apply Vectra 3D, push discs together to open pipette, then squeeze entire contents directly onto skin, at parted hair between the shoulder blades.

Store Vectra 3D in a cool, dry place.

Didn't last

While it killed ticks for several days, the first application on April 1 was done within 3 weeks. A second application on April 27 wasn't working within 10 days. Six days later and the poor pup is covered with them. At this price, I could tolerate a couple days short of monthly applications but 10 days? Find something else. I will.

Ineffective

Put all 3 of my dogs on Vectra 3D per my vets request. It is ineffective. I have used it for a month now and reapplied their 2nd dose 2 days ago and they still have fleas! In fact, my small dog itches and scratches worse now then she did before I applied this stuff. The only thing it has done, is repel flies! it's basically worthless and ineffective. If I wanted a flea medication that doesn't kill fleas, I would have applied Frontline. At least it costs less!

Never tried it and never will again. Pretty much useless...

I have always used Frontline on my cat and on my dogs but because my boyfriends dog needed all his shots and license, etc... I thought I'd try something new because it was cheaper, plus it was buy 3 get 1 free as well. I walk the yellow lab 3 times a day and the deepest woods he see's is the leaves and grass along the shore line of Bald Eagle Lake an inner city lake in White Bear Minnesota. I have pulled 3 feeding ticks off of him in the last few days. I didn't realize how fantastic Frontline was until I used this in superior product. Tomorrow I will be returning the 3 unused viles' and gladly purchasing Frontline. Poor dog, having to deal with the risks these bites may cause him.

Not impressed

My vet gave me the hard sell on this one. I've used as directed for three months. Today, I picked up the dog from the spot where I'd boarded him and he has fleas. For the money I paid for this product, this is unacceptable. Back to Frontline for us.

Love Product, but leaves residue on coat.

This product works 110%. It truly works great in equestrian areas where parasites are concentrated. The only thing I dislike is the product leaves a greasy residue on the coat. This is due to a large amount put on a small breed dog's skin. I tend to apply only half and come back a few days later and apply the other half to prevent a mess. I suppose if you have a larger breed dog you should be fine.

Works GREAT!

I have a lab/ pit mix who's been on Vectra for about 2 years now, we LOVE it! We changed from Frontline bc it just wasn't working anymore. We moved into a house that had fleas and they just wouldn't go away so we switched to Vectra and they were gone almost immediately! We have a BIG tick problem here and I have only found 1 tick on her since she's been on this and that was when I had forgotten to give it to her for 2 months. We have 2 cats and we have not had a problem. I just keep her outside or in a seperate room when I first apply it. It's only harmful to cats if the ingest it while it's wet, so it's pretty easy to keep that from happening.

Best thing for my Pits!I

I have 4 pitbulls who are prone to allergies to everything just about. My oldest one would always chew the hair off of her tail. When we started using Vectra she stopped and never since have we had the problem. Have not seen one tick or flea on any of my dogs. I tried frontline and advantix but this is all I will swear by now!

THE BEST SPOT-ON EVER!!

I was told by my vet that Advantix was the best spot-on available. I faithfully applied the product every thirty days as directed. My dog was aggravated by fleas and I was removing at least three embedded ticks per day. I then tried Bio-Spot which got rid of the flea and tick problem but my dog has a reaction to that where he developed sores and suffered hair loss. My vet then recommended Vectra-3D and we have been flea and tick free for over one year with no allergic reactions!

I Love This Product.

I have a water-loving 7 year-old dog that is in the deep woods multiple times a week. No other product compares to Vectra3D when it comes to keeping the bugs away. Over the years we have used both K9 Advantix & Frontline Plus. When we tried Promeris he had a very scary reaction. In a full year with Vectra3D I have only found a single very dead tick on my dog. There have been no fleas. And, on top of that, I haven't had to re-apply the Vectra as often. During the height of flea & tick season he has needed it every 6 weeks, as opposed to the need for re-application at 3 weeks with the other products we have tried.I hate that some dogs have had reactions to this drug, but after experiencing a terrible reaction with a flea and tick control product, I am relieved to have found no problems with Vectra 3D in our case. I love this stuff!

Stop wasting money on Frontline!!

I have 3 cats and 2 dogs and Frontline Plus has completely stopped working on the Fleas AND ticks in our area, if not everwhere. I am in Western PA. We wasted hundreds of dollars last year with frontline, who was denying there is anything amiss with the very common problem. We were recommended Vectra by the one Vet who knew about it and carried it last year, Being a pet parent rather than just owner we had always used frontline because it seemed to be the safest as well as most effective. Vectra is better in every way and we have been very pleased with the results and lack of reaction from any of our animals when using it. It is even safe enough to use more than once a month although I am not sure why because unlike other products we did not notice any fleas in the last days of the cycle, knowing us we have even applied late! Quite frankly Vectra has saved my summer this year!

Works Great !

I have heard a lot of dogs have sensitivity issues with Vectra, but this was never the case with my two dogs. Vectra worked much better than Frontline and since I've been using it I've never found a tick on my dogs - I can't say the same with Frontline and K9 Advantix. No sensitivity issues with my dogs.

My dog is an 8 year old Shih Tzu that is highly allergic to fleas. We had tried several different medications and nothing seemed to work, we were still finding fleas on him.

I've got 3, tick and flea free!

After using other tick and flea controls for years and having to put pesticides on my lawn yearly, I was tired of seeing fleas on my pets. My Vet recommended, over 1 year ago, that I try Vectra. Since then, no more fleas, no more ticks, no more pesticides. I was worried about the chemicals in my yard for environmental reasons. And the long term effect on my babies. If I have fleas and ticks in my yard now I don't even know it. Because they never make it into my house or on my pets long enough to notice! This product gets 10 stars from me.

Great Product!!

We have a German Shorthair Pointer who travels with us regularily. The great thing about this product is your dog has no issues with fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, or sand fleas. Some of the other products do want your dog to be in water for a week after the application....have you ever tried keeping a sporting dog out of the water? We are consistent in applying this on the same date every month so it is nice not to have to try and plan our activities around the dog's application.There is nothing better than having a happy healthy dog!

worked better than frontline plus for my animals

I was using frontline plus for both our lab and cat. We found multiple ticks on our lab, both crawling and embedded. Our indoor cat developed a problem with fleas, despite consistent application and efforts to bomb and clean our home. Our vet told us that through word of mouth they had consistent complaints about the effectiveness of frontline for fleas (perhaps related to all the rescues that came north due to hurricane Katrina) and suggested trying vectra 3-d for our dog and cat (there is an additional version for cats, but does not provide protection from ticks.) It worked immediately! The frontline plus had also begun to make our cat's fur fall out excessively after application, which there have been no problems with the vectra.

I was an avid fan of Frontline Plus for dogs......until late last fall when I found a tick on my german shepherd while he was on Frontline Plus.....not once, but twice in about a 3 or 4 week period. My vet told me about Vectra 3D, and I tried it for both my german shepherd and my siberian husky. They've been on it for about 9 months now, and I haven't had found any fleas OR ticks. I highly recommend this product.
