Vectra 3D protects your pets against parasites and pathogens. Vectra 3D uses a three pronged approach to keep your pet safe from disease carrying agents by utilizing Dinotefuran, Permethrin and Pyriproxyfen.

The Dinotefuran is an insecticide that functions by causing continuous stimulation of the nervous system of insects upon first contact. This stimulation leads to tremors and quick deaths in insects as they land on your dog. Permethrin is an adulticide and works to repel vectors, such as mosquitoes, ticks and sand flies by causing them to lose control of their nervous system. Lastly, Pyripoxyfen, an insect growth regulator, works to prevent development of fleas in their early stages. This keeps them as eggs, larvae and pupae until the other active ingredients functionally decimate them.

Vectra 3D has been clinically shown to provide fast-acting protection against multiple pests lasting up to one month. In addition to repelling mosquitoes, ticks, and sand flies, Vectra 3D repels and kills fleas, lice, and mites quickly and effectively. In fact, it has been shown to reduce the number of ticks in only 24-hours and begins killing fleas within the first two hours of use.

Vectra 3D remains effective after bathing and it can be used on dogs and puppies older than 7 weeks. Vectra 3D comes in 4 dosing sizes based on your dogís body weight. The product is available for all weights in packs of 3-doses and packs of 6-doses. Vectra 3D Purple for Dogs & Puppies is intended for dogs between 56 and 95 pounds and this particular package comes with 3 doses. For heavier dogs, use Vetcra 3D Red and for lighter dogs use Vectra 3D Green or Vectra 3D Blue. Vectra 3D is also available for Cats and Kittens.

Please read the application instructions thoroughly before applying Vectra 3D to your pets.

Key Features:
  • Kills fleas, ticks, sand flies, mosquitoes, lice and mites on contact before they can bite
  • Repels pests for full month per dose
  • Comes in Four varieties depending on dog weight: Green for dogs 2.5-20 lbs, Blue for dogs 21-55 lbs, Purple for dogs 55-95 lbs and Red for dogs over 95 lbs

    Did not work!

    Fleas must be immune to all flea products this year! All that I've tried anyway. Still has lots of fleas! We sprayed the yard, cleaned the dog beds, and sprayed the house. Wish I could say otherwise.

    Almost as soon as I applied the Vectra my puppy started scratching and biting herself. Over a week later, the reactions finally are starting to subside.

    Great topical prevention for fleas and ticks!
    January 7, 2021
    Have used Vectra for my dogs for years and have had no problems with fleas or ticks. I like that
    Vectra has a repellency factor which causes insect paralysis...insects don't always have to bite to die. I appreciate the good selection of products at Entirely Pets and the great prices.
    • Very good protection for pet, trusted manufacturer and supplier.
    • A little oily upon application in the hair around skin but does go away after a short time.

    Really Works!
    May 26, 2018
    Our vet recommended this when Frontline stopped working and other products made our Westie lethargic after application. We've been using it for almost 3 years and it's been great! I don't like the price tag, but it's really worth it.
    • Easy to apply/doesn't bother my dog
    • Doesn't dry too quickly, price

    I've been using this product for several years. It works great on my dog. Nice to have it delivered to my door Instead of driving to the vets office. I highly recommend this product. It keeps fleas & ticks from jumping on my dog in the first place!

    This tick repellent really works and if I find a tick on Coco it is dead. Very easy to apply and can use seasonally when ticks and mosquitoes are active.

    Very effective product
    July 1, 2016
    We have been using this treatment for more than 3 years and have never had a flea or tick problem with our two border collie/lab dogs. We live in a suburban location and they are free to roam our 1/2 acre lot but they do not go to wooded areas or dog parks. Just wanted you to know their environment for this review.

    I like the fact that it doesn't burn their skin or make them sick unlike some others have.

    It really works
    April 25, 2016
    We used many prescription Tick repellents but none worked reliably. After starting to use Vectra 3D more than 3 years ago, either we find no ticks on our dogs or they are dead when we pull one off. It's wonderful not to have to worry about our dogs getting disease from ticks! And it's so easy to apply one person can do it easily.

    We've been using Vectra 3D on our two border collie mix boys for more than 3 years with not one flea or tick. And the 15% discount made the price at EP more attractive than buying from the vet.

    I prefer Vectra 3D to any other flea & tick prevention and it's very hard to find anymore it was a great relief to be able to purchase it from you and at a reasonable price.

    Review for Vectra 3D PURPLE for Dogs 56-95 lbs - 3 Doses
    March 19, 2015
    Product is good, but I will never order from Entirely Pets again. I paid for the 2-4 days shipping and they did not send it that way. It took 10 days to get it. When I call customer service they said they would reship the product and refound the money for postage and they didn't. They don't do what they say.

    Am new to this product, used to apply Frontline Plus but this is far better. No side effects on my Akita puppy (6 months) and it seems to repel ticks as well.

    My vet switched us to Vectra 3D a couple years ago. She highly recommended this product. Very satisfied.

    August 30, 2014
    This is a great product. It works VERY well. (Remember do not use dog flea treatment on cats it can kill them. Keep your kitty away from dogs with freshly applied treatment for 12-24 hours.)

    Best Flea Treatment
    August 15, 2014
    I use Vectra Products on my two dogs and the Vectra Cat Treatment for my kitty. (WARNING: dog flea treatment can kill cats.) I've never had any bad side effects with this product and it works well. I've had problems with other treatments which were not strong enough.

    Doesn't seem to be strong enough
    August 6, 2014
    I have observed that after my dog returns from day care she continues to scratch and chew - signs that there are flees at the day care, so what is new. I just expect the product to protect her and maybe it does in the long road but initially she has difficulty.
