Ceva Animal Health has launched Vectra 3D, an “innovative broad spectrum topical ectoparasiticide” that protects dogs against fleas, ticks and flies using a patented applicator.
Containing a unique formulation of three active ingredients – dinotefuran, pyriproxyfen and permethrin – dinotefuran being a brand new active, Vectra 3D provides a rapid flea kill
within two hours for dogs on current treatment and complete protection against the major vectors: fleas, ticks, sand flies, mosquitoes and stable flies.
According to Ceva, insects do not need to ingest dinotefuran – it kills on contact reducing the incidences of flea feeding. A unique synergistic combination with permethrin increases the efficacy of both, facilitating rapid knock down and death.
Vectra 3D is administered via its patented applicator, which has an elongated smooth tip for quick and easy application using an advanced “Line-On” technique. The elongated tip on the new applicator makes it easy to reach the dog’s skin through the hair to provide direct contact during the ‘Line-On’ application from the base of the tail to the neck.
According to Ceva, Vectra 3D is also the only “Line-On” (or spot-on) ectoparasiticide that offers repellent action against sand flies for one month, together with protection against mosquitoes and stable flies.
To support the launch, Ceva is hosting a series of informative CPD meetings across the UK. Accounting for two hours CPD, the afternoon meetings will cover vector-borne diseases, the importance of ticks in the UK and product information on Vectra 3D. The events, to be presented by Ian Wright and Richard Wall, will take place at:
- Williams F1 Conference Centre, Wantage, Oxfordshire (February 26)
- Mercedes Benz World, Weybridge, Surrey (February 27)
- Concorde Conference Centre, Manchester Airport (March 11)
- Knockhill Racing Circuit, Dumfermline (March 14)
