MOSQUITOES TRANSMIT HEARTWORM DISEASE TO DOGS SO WHY AREN’T WE STOPPING THEM?

REPELLING AND KILLING MOSQUITOES ON THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR DOG AND KILLING LARVAE INSIDE PROTECTS YOUR DOG FROM HEARTWORMS BETTER THAN USING A HEARTWORM PREVENTIVE ALONE.

We all know mosquitoes carry some terrible diseases that can gravely affect humans, like malaria, West Nile and Zika virus. But did you know the same mosquitoes spread heartworms to dogs?

When you consider a dog can be bitten over 80 times by mosquitoes in a single evening*, it’s not hard to see the importance of protecting your dog against mosquito bites just like you protect yourself and your family.

AGAINST HEARTWORM DISEASE.

with Vectra® 3D for Dogs.

Kills heartworm larvae
before they develop into
adult heartworms.

DOES YOUR FLEA AND TICK
CONTROL MEET A NEW
STANDARD OF CARE?

Vectra® 3D for Dogs is easy, fast and effective protection for dogs that does more than kill and repel mosquitoes. 

How do heartworm preventives work?

After the initial infection, heartworm preventives work on the inside to kill larvae before they grow into adult heartworms. That’s very important.

How does Vectra® 3D for Dogs work?

A single application of Vectra® 3D for Dogs:

  • Kills mosquitoes before they bite.
  • Begins reducing flea feeding in 5 minutes.
  • Onset of flea knockdown in less than 2 hours.
  • Repels and kills ticks including Deer ticks, American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks and Gulf Coast ticks for one month.
  • Repels ticks before they can attach to dogs and take a blood meal.
  • Repels and kills biting flies, sand flies and mites (excluding mange mites).

How do I apply Vectra® 3D for Dogs?

It’s simple. Using the applicator tip, part the hair at the base of the tail, and begin applying the product onto the skin in a continuous line from the base of the tail along the center of the back all the way up to the shoulder blades, squeezing the applicator tube until it’s empty. Avoid superficial application to the dog’s hair.

Why can’t I just use Vectra® 3D for Dogs or a heartworm preventive only?

Together, they provide a double defense. It’s like brushing your teeth and flossing. Each can help you maintain good oral hygiene, but together they work to give you the most protection.

DO MORE TO PROTECT YOUR DOG FROM DEADLY HEARTWORMS.

Along with a heartworm preventive, ask your veterinarian about making Vectra® 3D
for Dogs part of your Double Defense heartworm protection plan.
