Keep Your Dogs Safe With Vectra 3D Flea Control

We are the proud owners of three dogs. Casey our oldest, a yellow lab mixed with who knows what, was originally my Mom’s dog. Now that Mom’s gone, she lives with us. Cowboy is our middle dog, the smartest, most loyal, compassionate border collie, and well the family favorite. My husband and I bought Cowboy when he was 8 weeks old, before we were married. I think he’s the best purchase we’ve ever made together!

Then there’s our youngest, Cooper aka “Scoop Scoop”, a lab mixed with English setter.  My hubby brought home Cooper one night as gift for me, when I was six months pregnant with our daughter. Cooper is the sweetest, most loving dog I’ve ever met, but not too bright.

Before our children were born, our dogs were our kids. They lived in the house, slept in the bed, and were spoiled rotten. Now, they’ve become outside dogs, but they’re still our family. Which means they live outside full-time until the sympathy card is played during cold weather, thunderstorms, or fireworks,  then we cave and let them spend the night inside. Unfortunately, last summer after the dogs slept in the house, we ended up with a flea infestation!

With fleas attacking my son with a vengeance, I learned more about fleas than I ever wanted to know. We spent two months and countless dollars waging war on the fleas in our yard, on our dogs, and in our house. Did you know fleas can carry and transmit bubonic plague? Oh and as luck would have it, Cooper has flea allergy dermatitis, an allergy to the saliva from fleas that made him miserable! It could have been worse, our dogs could have been infected with West Nile, heartworms, tapeworms, or become anemic.

After our experience last summer, I learned its much easier to protect our dogs from fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, than to deal with the aftermath. Vectra 3D Flea Control kills fleas and ticks on contact, which means they die, before they bite your best friend! Since it only takes one bite for your dog to become infected, you want your flea control to kill on contact! You can buy Vectra 3D at your local vet’s office, and try it for free.

When you enter Vectra’s Protect the Love Facebook Sweepstakes, you get a free dose of Vectra flea & tick control. Just enter the sweepstakes, then visit FirstDoseFree.com and fill out the form, and you’re on your way to protecting your dog. Plus, every week during the sweepstakes,Vectra will choose a random winner for a $100 gift card to use at your next vet visit! WooHoo!

    I’ve got 2 indoor cats and know all about flea control..last year, somehow, the house got infested while we were away for a month and mom was caring for them (I think it had to do with her leaving food for the outdoor strays and then tracking in fleas from our porch) While I hate using chemicals on them, I’ve been doing it to cut back on fleas in the house. IT’s a daily struggle, but getting better each day. Hubby is allergic to bites so it is a priority now that weather is getting warmer here in Maine to make sure no new fleas pop up this summer!

    We will soon be adopting two kittens—thanks for the reminder about flea control! lol! I will be looking for a safe alternative to the old heavy chemicals.

    I have 2 dogs, one is a inside dog that hates the outside and the other one is an outside dog that doesn’t know how to act indoors. Last year my dog started having a dermatitis problem as well and found out that he had an allergic reaction to fleas tool. So he is on a once monthly pill to help ease some of the fleas but you can never stop those little critters at all!
