Vectra 3D - Torture in a Tube
avatar
timbeaverdamwi posted:
Just found flea evidence on one of our Bichons. Was told by our vet that Frontline Plus is losing effectiveness so switching to Vectra 3D was necessary. We have 2 senior Bichons (12 yrs) plus one who is 14+ and a puppy born in June 2013. Dosage & Application Instructions were followed carefully.
The Puppy started acting lethargic within hours after application. The Oldest senior Bichon/Poodle mix has been neurotic & jumpy after the application. We waited overnight, to see if it got better. This proved to be a terrible error of judgement. After 2 baths with dawn dish soap, and mega rinsing . . .we continue to have to watch our little girls freak out & there is NOTHING we can do for them. After an Emergency Vet visit we were told we could try Benadryl to settle her down...sadly this seems NOT to be helping one bit. Supposedly we could get a refund on our unused applications (we bought in to the buy 6 get a rebate deal) but the manufacturer would not refund our money for those adverse reaction doses. It is deplorable that we have to sit and watch our beloved dogs try to "crawl out of their skin" from this terrible product. She even had a SEIZURE & lost her bladder control on the furniture - which is not typical for her. On a scale of 1-10 . . I rate this rate this product NEGATIVE 100,000,000!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL NEVER AGAIN TRUST THIS PRODUCT AND AM SO DISSATISFIED! IT HAS ME ANGRY BEYOND BELIEF. I would honestly prefer to pick individual fleas off the dog by the hour, than use this pathetic product.
DO NOT EVEN TRY IT ON YOUR DOG - IT IS TORTURE IN A TUBE.
The people who produce this product and their family members should all have to suffer like our poor dog......maybe then they might relize just how awful this crap is. HATE IT!!!!!!

Vecra 3D is TORTURE IN A TUBE.
