FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How do I apply flea & tick pet sprays?
Cover animal's eyes with hand. With a firm, fast stroke to get a proper spray mist, spray the head, ears and chest until damp. With cloth, rub into face around mouth, nose and eyes. Then spray neck, middle and hindquarters, finishing legs last. For best penetration of the spray to the skin, direct spray against the natural lay of the hair. On longhaired dogs and cats, run your hand against the lay of the hair, spraying the ruffled hair directly behind the hand. Make sure spray thoroughly wets ticks.
What's the difference between the regular and water-based Adams Flea & Tick Pet Sprays?
Adams Pet Spray products come in both alcohol and water-based formulas. Some contain adulticides only, while others contain both an adulticide and the Infest Stop* ingredient, which kills the eggs and causes the female flea to lay sterile eggs. The water-based formulas are slower drying (alcohol speeds up drying process because of evaporation) but are the choice for irritated skin. The water-based formulas contain coat conditioners. The alcohol-based formulas dry quickly and the alcohol has a flushing effect on the fleas, which tends to create a faster kill. Some cats may drool upon tasting the spray on their coat. This may occur with alcohol- or water-based products. This response is generally self-limiting.
Can Adams dog products be used on a cat, and vice versa?
No! NEVER use flea and tick control products for dogs on cats or vice versa. Cats are very different from dogs so they need special formulas. Only use products labeled for cats on cats. Cats and dogs can have adverse reactions, including death, to certain ingredients in each other's products. The makers of Adams products tailor the products to fit the needs of each animal, and includes ingredients appropriate to each pet.
Can I use Adams flea & tick spray if I am pregnant?
If you are pregnant, we encourage you to have someone else in the household apply the product. You should avoid breathing the mist, swallowing or inhaling it. If your hands come in contact with the product, wash them with soap and water.
Can my pet be treated with Adams flea & tick products if they are on medication?
Adams products are not systemically active and have no known adverse interactions with systemic medications.
NOTE: Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant, nursing, or animals on medication.
How long before I see no more fleas?
In general, most Adams Spot On products kill fleas, ticks and mosquitoes and will continue working for up to 3-4 weeks.
How often do I need to reapply the product(s)?
The duration of the product's effectiveness varies from product to product. Always read labels carefully and follow label instructions before reapplying.
Should you bathe pets before or after using Adams pet sprays?
We recommend you bathe your pet with an Adams Flea & Tick Shampoo prior to using our pet spray products. Once the shampoo is rinsed off the pet, the residual activity of the insecticidal ingredient is gone, so it is important to follow up with a maintenance product to protect the pet from new fleas emerging from within their cocoons in the infested environment. Pets must be completely dry before the mist application.
What is the difference between pet sprays and flea & tick shampoos?
Adams pet sprays can be used as a complement to your pet's regular flea and tick control maintenance program. Pet sprays are applied directly onto the animal to kill and repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Shampoos allow pet owners to cleanse and deodorize and add luster to their pet's coat while killing fleas, flea eggs, ticks and lice.
What is the drying time on all pet, home, and yard sprays?
The drying time for pet sprays may take approximately one hour but will vary based on the quantity that is applied to the pet. Home sprays take approximately one hour to dry while yard sprays may take up to 24 hours. Do not allow children or pets to come in contact with areas treated with a home or yard spray until the surface has dried.
Will my pet get sick if he/she licks himself/herself after I use this product?
When adding chemical-based treatments for care, follow the label's instructions carefully and contact your vet with any questions. Prevent your pet from licking itself for 24 hours. Some pets may drool upon tasting the treatment on their coat. This may occur with alcohol- or water-based products. This response is generally self-limiting.
