Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.

My yard is the home of a large family of squirrels. All of their friends come over to play with them daily. They are all adorable but they are all infested with fleas. I purchased afams flea dip to help me break this flea cycle. It has no oder and leaves my dogs coat beautifully full soft and conditioned. It works great for 24 hours. After that it fails and the fleas return. It does not work for 7 days.
So this did work immediately but did not get rid of the fleas completely. We had to combine this with flea collars.
I live in an area where fleas are infested in our sandy soil and ever since I moved here I have been battling fleas. I used all the Adams Flea care products together and I am happy to say that they have worked. My dog was anemic because of the flea infestation on him, in my home, and in my yard. I could never use oral medication because it caused him seizures. This is the only product that saved my little guy from dying from the fleas. Thank you Adams and Chewy.
I am not sure I should use this on my cat. There were a couple of things listed that concerned me. I have not opened it and wonder if I can return it. Thanks
The dip worked very well, and was easy to use.
We used this dip exactly as directed on our 2 adult cats. Had to rush them both to the emergency vet. 1 cat was gasping for breaths and convulsing and the other was making coughing and throat clearing sounds about two hours after using the dip. Brought the bottle to the vet with us and he said that the active ingredient is toxic to cats and can cause death. He said he sees this far to often and the product should not be labeled for use on cats. Both my cats are in for at least an overnight stay with iv fluids and catheters. So far my bill is $1600.00 and I do not know if they will survive. I am heart broken and hope I can prevent anyone else from going through this. Please call your vet and ask before using this product on your cats. You can also look up pyrethrin poisoning in cats and see it is a serious issue. I unfortunately did my research too late.
This DOES kill the fleas. Evidently, people who are posting negative feedback don't know how to use flea dips. You have to leave the animal in the solution a few minutes (atleast 5), so the fur and skin is saturated. It is best to not wet the animal prior to dipping. Do NOT dru the animal after dipping. You should use this in conjunction with both a weekly or biweekly bath and treatment of the usual sleep and activity areas. Trim the claws of cats prior to any washing or dipping. Also remember, some older cats WILL bite you. Grab the nape of the neck, like the mama cats do with kittens. Cats will eventually become tolerant of baths. Some will eventually be difficult to keep out of the bath.
This stuff does not work don't buy it. Your wasting your money.
As a dog groomer and dog owner this is an easy mix and application product after an effective flea bath, house bomb and yard spray. Will repeat application in a few days. No fleas seen right after and now almost a week later. Reapplication of all is essential to break the flea cycle
This product is not the same as a monthly preventative. This is great to use as an initial step to killing fleas, ticks, mites, etc. This products reduces or eliminates the pet's infestation, but doesn't stop a reinfestation, especially if the parasite remains in the pet's environment. If you use this as an initial treatment to kill the adult fleas, etc., on your pet, then about a week later apply a monthly preventative that kills eggs and larvae stage parasites, your pet will thank you. Ask your vet how long to wait to apply the monthly preventative. It could be between 2-7 days later, depending on the active ingredient of the preventive that you choose. It may also need to treat the environment, and/or repeat treatment for heavy infestations, but if you keep a monthly preventative on your pet, you will be satisfied. Also, fleas, ticks, and other parasites left in the environment can become resistant to one specific medication, so sometimes it's necessary to change the monthly preventative every 3-4 months, rotating between the active ingredient. The Adam's dip is an excellent start. Just pay special attention to all instructions, especially in regard to usage for baby pets and size of pet. Hope this helps. I'm not a vet, but have dealt with hard to kill flea infestations. It's frustrating when a product doesn't perform well on its own. Being consistent and persistent in the beginning is key to ending the cycle.
