I bought this for my husky in August, but instead of preventing the fleas it only got worse the three months I've used it on him. Not only has this gone to full blown flea situation but the flea baths and use of another flea topical preventive have not helped. Don't waste your money on this product. I'm seeking to get refund of my money spent. This dog is kept clean and pampered at all times and shouldn't be going through this torment right now.
I recently used ZoGuard on all 4 of my pets which range from a 9 pounder to an 80 pounder and the cat. I am so disappointed, it did not work at all. I don't know if they have super fleas or what but it did not work.
The widely used insecticide filpronil was not invented by Frontline, they patented the use on cats and dogs to control the market. It is actually a reasonably priced chemical that is widely used in agriculture. This brand is much more realistically priced. Frontline (merial) repeatedly sued others to prevent losing control over this application and lost. The stuff works best if applied as preventative or at the earliest sign of fleas. Infested households are challenging for any product, especially if deligent sanitation is not followed.
Have tried many products from the pet store, spent lots of $$$. Seems the fleas are used to the products. First treatment with this and the fur kids are not scratching themselves silly! I sleep better too!

Are treatments useless if bedding not washed?
ZoGuard Plus starts working usually within a few hours, but the fleas do have to bite the treated animal to die from the application. You can use a flea dip or a product like Capstar if you need instant treatment for a lot of fleas that are already on the animal. We always recommend that you treat the environment where fleas are present in addition to treating products approved for the animals. We have a great Indoor Flea Control Kit here. Sheets and blankets can be washed and dried, and other items like pet beds that cannot be washed can be treated with the spray in the Indoor Flea Kit or steamed. Please take a few moments to review our Flea Treatment Guide here.
