While the product is generally considered safe for small dogs, there are still some side effects to be aware of. Side effects include vomiting, diarrhea and intense itching. Affected dogs may experience chemical burns at the application site. Vectra 3D is only intended for dogs. Cats cannot safely consume permethrin, and its presence is toxic to them.
Vectra 3D is a topically applied cream that must be applied by the dog to the affected area. There are lotions available for dogs from 5 to 10 pounds. For larger dogs, lotions are available for dogs between 11 and 50 pounds and 51 to 95 pounds. The residue left behind by the topical solution can cause irritation. Because the treatment is water-based, owners should wait two to six hours before bathing their dog, or alternate between application of two halves at different times.
Vectra 3D for dogs is designed to kill parasites on contact. It kills fleas and reduces their feeding within five minutes. The active ingredient dinotefuran blocks a receptor that interferes with communication between fleas, their host, and their hosts.
