4Fleas, starts killing fleas in 15 minutes

Johnsons 4Fleas...want to know more about this superb range of flea treatments?  Scampers 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 4Fleas’ tablets? 4Fleas 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 4Fleas on your pets by putting some extracts of our in store question and answer training sheet for 4Fleas here in our news section.
