Below are some recent questions we've received regarding VetIQ Flea Guard for Dogs & Cats, including answers from our team.
I'm a little confused. I read that garlic is poisonous to both cats and dogs but there are numerous products sold particularly as a flea deterrent containing garlic. Can you put my mind at rest that these products are safe to use on my cats
Garlic is only toxic at a high quantity. This is completely safe and doesn't contain just pure garlic, only extracts.
Are these suitable to be given to 12 week old kittens?
Yes these tablets are perfectly safe to give to kittens. Cats 1-5kg can have 1/2 a tablet per day, which you can break into smaller pieces or crushed and put into their food if needed.
Hi, I am a bit curious about how these tablets work on dogs that already caught fleas. Are these fleas being repelled?
The tablets contain garlic extract which is a natural repellent but needs to be fed daily to have any effect. During peak flea season, it is also recommended that double the recommended amount is given - eg if your dog is 10kg, they will need 3 tablets daily. I cannot comment on how efficiently they will deal with an existing problem- these are best used as a preventative and I would recommend using them alongside a safe chemical-based flea treatment to give the best protection.
With an existing infestation, I would recommend using a product like Frontline or Advantage to kill the fleas quickly - they will currently be breeding very quickly and the eggs will drop off around your home- into carpets, dog bedding, skirting boards and later in the year the fleas will hatch and jump onto your pet. To kill adult fleas in your home or dog kennel, a product such as Indorex flea spray can be used and this product will also prevent the eggs from developing for up to 12 months.
There are natural spot-on products and collars like those in the Biospotix range, which contain 100% natural repellents and may help to reduce the problem if you prefer not to use medications in conjunction with the VetIQ tablets. I hope this has been helpful- please get in touch if you have any other questions.
