Flea4X Plus: Begins Killing Fleas and Ticks in Just 5 Minutes

Use Flea4X Plus for dogs and Flea3X for cats

Most people love the warmer spring and summer weather but unfortunately, so do fleas. Depending upon the weather conditions where you live, flea season typically begins in May. The optimum temperature for fleas to thrive is around 65 to 85 degrees, and fleas also do well in the higher spring and summer humidity. Fleas can feed on your dog or cat within seconds of landing on your pet and within 24 hours of that first meal, courtesy of your pet, the fleas can begin laying up to 50 eggs per day which can quickly result in an infestation. It’s clear that when it comes to fleas, fast action is crucial. Now available exclusively at PetMeds, Flea4X Plus has a four-way action that kills fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and mites. Best of all, it starts killing fleas and ticks in 5 minutes.

How does Flea4X Plus work?

Flea4X Plus is available exclusively at PetMeds

Flea4X Plus contains fipronil, which is the same ingredient in the popular product Frontline. However, it also contains cyphenothrin which works to maximize the effects of fipronil to start killing fleas and ticks as quickly as 5 minutes. In addition to treating fleas, Flea4X Plus is effective against American dog ticks, Deer ticks, Lone Star ticks as well as chewing lice, mites and mosquitoes. Flea4X is made in the USA, is waterproof and prevents and controls infestations for 30 days.

How do I apply Flea4X Plus?

Apply Flea4X Plus once a month

Flea4X Plus is easy to apply. One monthly, remove a single tube from the package and cut off the end at the notch, along the lines. Part your dog’s fur between the shoulder blades and squeeze the tube firmly, applying the entire contents of the tube to that one spot. Once applied, the product is disbursed by the natural oils on your dog, where it collects in the oil glands in the skin; this process is called “translocation.” The product is then wicked onto your pet’s fur over the next 30 days. Once fleas and ticks come into contact with Flea4X Plus, they die without ever having to bite your pet.

What if I have a cat?

Do not use Flea4X Plus on cats. For cats, use Flea3X Plus, which kills fleas, ticks, chewing lice and mosquitoes. Flea3X Plus contains fipronil and also etofenprox, which maximizes the effect of fipronil. Flea3X Plus is also made in the USA, and begins killing fleas and ticks in as little as one hour.

  1. Is this product safe to use on pregnant/nursing cats? Have there been many instances of allergic reactions to this product?

    Thank you,

    I dont think I would use it on pregnant/nursing animals. Not many allergic reactions as far as I know.

  3. I have a small mixed breed dog (yorkie) and the rescue sent him home with PetArmor (Generic for Frontline Top Spot which is just Friponil). They say they use this on all their dogs. Both the rescue and myself live in a VERY highly infested mosquito and tick area (PA). I do not have any other pets in the house so fleas are not an issue. Also since I found a tick (not attached) on him, I have become somewhat paranoid and now only let him out on a leash in the front yard to do his business and then straight back in the house.

    I would like to take him for a walk and enjoy my pet but with epidemic reports of lyme disease and West Nile in humans as well as heartworm in dogs, it is a concern.

    Products with cyphenothrin and permethrin are considered highly toxic to dogs let alone the smaller breeds. The FDA is currently “on the fence” in regards to banning these pesticides. Trying to find an effective product that not only protects but also repels BEFORE the dog is bitten is hard to come by without such toxicity. PetArmor does NOT repel nor does Frontline so please help!

    Best to have vet exam and evaluation for proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

  7. I’ve used Flea4Xplus the past 3 months without a problem. I used it on my dog this morning. This evening he began behaving agitated. Can’t find a comfortable position. Normally in the late evenings. He is a calm, sleepy dog. I bathed him thinking it might be reaction to the flea med. he’s still acting hyper. What should I do now?

  8. Dr. Michael Dym, VMD veterinarianOctober 3, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    Sounds like reaction. Give thorough bath and get it off if possible. A homeopathic dose of the remedy Nux Vomica in 30c potency from homeopathic pharmacy also may help and repeated in 6 to 8 hours up to 2 more times if needed, only stopping once he hopefully calms down, even after the first dose.

  9. Thanks. I bathed and made sure to get him to eat and drink. He is doing well now. I wonder what I should now use for flea protection.

  11. I have used FLEA4X on my two Shelties and one Bluetick Beagle with disappointing results. The weight range was correct and the application was as directed. The results were dismal in that fleas continued to be present on all three dogs. My disappointment with the results will cause me never to purchase this product again.
