As PetLock® Max is applied, it is absorbed and spread through the sebaceous glands throughout your pet’s skin. This takes between four and twelve hours depending on the size of the animal. Once these pesky parasites come in contact with PetLock® Max, they will begin dying immediately.
PetLock® Max has three active ingredients: Imidacloprid, Permethrin, and the IGR(insect growth inhibitor) Pyriproxyfen that prevents the flea eggs and larvae from developing into biting adults.
As with any product, consult your veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals. Do not use dog product on cats or vice versa.
PetLock® Max will get rid of the fleas on your dog and will break the flea cycle to control eggs and larvae for up to one month. However, it will not kill the fleas, eggs and larvae in your pet’s environment. It is important to treat your pet’s environment by heavy vacuuming (seal and throw away bags) and washing bedding in hot water. If you do not treat your pet’s environment, you will miss more than 90% of the developing flea population (eggs, larvae and pupae). See the life cycle of the flea. Consult your veterinarian for additional suggestions for your particular animal and environment products to treat these areas.
Although fleas lay their eggs on your pet, they soon falloff of the animal and into your pet’s bedding, carpeting, beneath cushions on furniture, and any other areas your pet sleeps or has access. These flea eggs and larvae that are in your pet’s environment have not been killed with PetLock® Max.It is important to treat those areas by heavy vacuuming (seal and throw away bags) and washing bedding in hot water. Flea traps, sprays, and cedar chips (fleas hate the smell) are other options. If you do not treat your pet’s environment, you will miss more than 90% of the developing flea population(eggs, larvae and pupae). See the life cycle of the flea.
As the fleas die, they rise to the top of your pet’s haircoat where they are more visible. Be assured, PetLock® Max is working!
