We have been selling and recommending this fantastic range of flea treatments since they came onto the UK market and the results on our own and our customers’ pets have been excellent.
So, what are 4 Fleas’ tablets? 4 Fleas are an oral tablet that rapidly eradicates fleas from cats and dogs and they start to kill fleas in just 15 minutes after administration. The active ingredient (nitenpyram) works by interfering with specific receptors, which affect the central nervous system of the flea causing it paralysis and then death.
