Johnsons 4 Fleas...want to know more about this superb range of flea treatments?

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.

At Scampers we train all our team in all our product ranges and we thought we would try and help you decide about using 4 Fleas on your pets by putting some extracts of our in store question and answer training sheet for 4 Fleas here in our news section.

Q. How do I know if 4 Fleas tablets are working?
A.  Your pet may scratch more than usual for the first hour after being administered; This is caused by the flea’s reaction to the tablets.

Q. Should I see dead fleas?
A. Yes- as 4 Fleas tablets start killing fleas within 15 minutes you see the dead fleas falling off your pet

Q. Why are 4 Fleas tablets different to other flea treatments?
A. 4 Fleas tablets are an oral treatment that starts to kill fleas within 15 minutes and will kill 95% of fleas in 6 hours and 100% in 24 hours. 4 Fleas tablets leave no insecticidal residue on your pet’s coat.

Q. How should I use 4 Fleas tablets and can I use them in conjunction with other products?
A. Yes- 4 Fleas tablets are an ideal partner to 4 Fleas dog and cat flea collars and 4 Fleas household spray. We recommend you use 4 Fleas household spray to eliminate all the eggs and larvae within your pet’s beds and your carpets and soft furnishings. P.S Don’t forget to spray your vehicle if your pets travel with you.

Q. How long do I have to keep giving 4 Fleas tablets?
A. Whenever fleas are seen on your pet or as a rule of thumb, if a pet has an infestation, 4 Fleas tablets should be given once a week for a 6-8 week period and a 4 Fleas collar and 4 Fleas household spray should be used for the same period.

Q. What is the recommended dosage and how do you administer them?
A. 1-11kg    = 1 x 4 Fleas tablet 11.4mg
     11- 57kg- = 1 x 4 Fleas tablet 57mg
     Above 57kg = 2 x 4 Fleas tablets 57mg

4 Fleas can be given with or without food and as often as once a day however this should rarely be necessary. There are NO contra-indications for 4 Fleas and they are licensed for use on dogs and cats.

Q. Are 4 Fleas tablets safe to be given to puppies and kittens and/or pregnant and nursing mothers?
A. Yes they are safe for puppies and kittens over 4 weeks of age and are completely safe for nursing and pregnant mothers. They are also safe for your pets even if they are on other medications including antibiotics, vaccines and wormers.

Q. Are 4 Fleas tablets safe to use around small children who are playing with your pets?
A. Yes. Pregnant mums and parents of small children are often concerned about the use of insecticides that can rub off on contact. Because 4 Fleas tablets are administered orally there is no residue left on you pets and is the only OTC flea-killing product to do this.

I hope we have answered all of questions about this great product, however should there be anything we haven’t please ask one of the Scampers Pet care advisors in store.
