Subsidiary - Summit VetPharm Man’s Best Friend Gets Relief From New Flea Product Summit VetPharm’s Vectra® for Dogs & Puppies Provides Long-lasting, Safe and Effective Control of All Stages of Fleas on Dogs A lthough fleas may cause a dog to itch, the real worry shouldn’t be the pet’s discomfort from scratching. The medical concern is that these parasites can carry disease and threats to both animal and human health that range from allergic reactions to serious infections. SCOA subsidiary SummitVetPharm recently announced the introduction of their newest product line,Vectra® for Dogs & Puppies, a monthly topical flea control product containing the insecticide dinotefuran in combination with pyriproxyfen, an insect growth regulator (IGR).Vectra® for Dogs & Puppies is the newest product in theVectra® line and a complement to Vectra 3D®,Vectra® for Cats & Kittens andVectra® for Cats. It can be used on dogs as young as eight weeks of age for year round flea treatment and prevention. Vectra® for Dogs & Puppies kills adult fleas, and in fact, it starts killing fleas within 2 hours of application. It also provides ongoing protection against fleas and the diseases they may transmit, including tularemia, bartonella and rickettsia. Additionally, it protects dogs from flea infesta- tions that may cause anemia, tapeworm disease and flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), and it contains an IGR – pyriproxyfen – which is stable in sunlight and prevents development of all immature flea stages (eggs, larvae and pupae) for one whole month. The product is gentle enough to be used on puppies as young as 8 weeks of age, and its patented applicator provides convenient topical treatment. Also,Vectra® for Dogs & Puppies efficacy information confirms that it has one of the quickest onsets of killing activity of any topical flea product. Tested with up to five times the recommended dose,Vectra® also showed no significant adverse effects. “In a study conducted to evaluate the duration of adulticide activity against fleas for Vectra in dogs weighing 21-55 pounds,” explained Dr. Cathy Ball, Summit VetPharm veterinary services, “Vectra began killing fleas within 2 hours following a single application and continued to perform for 30 days, maintaining a 100% reduction in fleas throughout the duration of the study.” Sumitomo Corporation of America 9
