Important Information

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.

Repeat treatment every 7 days if necessary.


Where is this product sourced from?

We source all our products from manufacturer approved distributors or directly from the manufacturers. Chewy takes pride in ensuring that our furry friends’ wellbeing is always our top priority. We have worked hard to partner with all of the manufactures to deliver 100% authentic products

Can Adams dog products be used on a cat, and vice versa?

No! NEVER use flea and tick control products for dogs on cats or vice versa. Cats are very different from dogs so they need special formulas. Only use products labeled for cats on cats. Cats and dogs can have adverse reactions, including death, to certain ingredients in each other’s products. The makers of Adams™ products tailor the products to fit the needs of each animal, and includes ingredients appropriate to each pet.

Can I bathe my pet after applying a topical product?

Topical treatments can take up to 24 hours to dry. Refraining from bathing your pet during this time is recommended. If you do choose to bathe your animal prior to adding topical products, wait until your pet is completely dry to apply the product.

If I treated my dog a week ago with a topical product and am still finding fleas, can I reapply?

For a heavy infestation, you can treat again as long as 8 days have passed since the prior application.

Do I have to bathe my pet first before I use a topical product? How long before this product works?

The product can be used after bathing, but bathing is not necessary. Once the liquid has dried completely, it’s okay for children and all family members to have normal contact with treated pets. For maximum effectiveness, we recommend minimizing direct contact with the treated pet until the pet has dried, usually within about 24 hours. Adams™ Spot On® products for dogs start killing fleas & ticks in just 15 minutes.

How can I apply this product to my pet when the warnings say not to get it on skin?

When applying an Adams™ product that requires adult skin contact, such as shampoos and dips, always wear gloves. Other products, such as pet sprays, topical products, home products, and yard products do not require adult skin contact. Always wash hands with soap and water after applying any Adams™ products.

How do I use multiple Adams™ products?

With many different product items in the Adams™ product line, there are numerous combinations which the products can be used. Some of the most common combinations include:* Dips/Shampoos/Sprays: For severe infestation problems, dips are commonly used to provide instant, short-term control. Shampoos are used to cleanse and fight infestation problems and provide instant, short-term control while also acting as a grooming agent. Adams™ shampoos may provide such grooming benefits as detangling and adding luster and a fresh scent to your pet’s coat.* Flea & Tick Collars and Topical Products: Offer residual control. Flea & tick collars or topical products can be used after bathing or dipping an animal although it is not recommended to use multiple pesticides simultaneously. Always follow package-labeling instructions when applying to animal.* Home Sprays, Yard Sprays and Foggers: Provide premise control. If experiencing an infestation, it is sometimes necessary to treat the yard and home to prevent reinfestation. Always follow label and package directions before use.Never use any Adams™ product in any manner that is inconsistent with the package labeling. Always consult a veterinarian before using any product on debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals or animals on medication.

Do your flea and tick products have an expiration date?

No, flea & tick products do not carry expiration dates. Our products will remain effective long after their date of manufacture when they are stored according to label directions. For best results, we recommend using any flea and tick product within 2-3 years of purchase.

How long before I see no more fleas?

In general, most Adams™ Spot On® products kill fleas, ticks and mosquitoes and will continue working for up to 3-4 weeks.

How often do I need to reapply the product(s)?

The duration of the product’s effectiveness varies from product to product. Always read labels carefully and follow label instructions before reapplying.

What type of results can I expect to see?

Each Adams™ product treats for specific problems. It’s best to choose the product which best fits your pet’s needs. In general, most Adams™ Flea & Tick products kill fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes and will continue working for up to 3-4 weeks.

Why has the Adams™ Flea & Tick treatment not worked?

Generally, after the application of our products, you may see more fleas. This is because the products make the fleas hyper-excited, drawing them to the top of the hair coat before dying.

What is the difference between pet sprays and flea & tick shampoos?

Adams™ pet sprays can be used as a complement to your pet’s regular flea and tick control maintenance program. Pet sprays are applied directly onto the animal to kill and repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Shampoos allow pet owners to cleanse and deodorize and add luster to their pet’s coat while killing fleas, flea eggs, ticks and lice.

Will my pet get sick if he/she licks himself/herself after I use this product?

When adding chemical-based treatments for care, follow the label’s instructions carefully and contact your vet with any questions. Prevent your pet from licking itself for 24 hours. Some pets may drool upon tasting the treatment on their coat. This may occur with alcohol- or water-based products. This response is generally self-limiting.

    Doesn't Work!

    By on

    Always loved Adam's Flea spray so I just knew this dip was going to help with the terrible flea problems we have. It did NOTHING. I even tried a second batch doubling the amount I added to the water. Again... NOTHING. Very disappointed.

    Have used this for years

    Works well on both dogs and cats. Read label carefully for proper use and success. If using in conjunction with Adams shampoo; shampoo first, then follow with dip. They'll thank you for it later.

    Just doesnt work

    By on

    Upon getting the product, Chewy shipped it fast by the way, I tried it right away. I gave my puppy a bath first, then dried her off and then applied flea dip according to instructions. It appeared to have worked well. However I needed to do another application and I decided to just do a flea dip instead of bath then didnt work. I tried it again and again and still no success. It just doesnt work.

    Don't waste your money.

    By on

    This doesn't work. I even made up dip, poured it in a container, combed fleas off the cat, dumped live fleas in the dip. The fleas swam around and tried to get out. I put a lid on the jar with the fleas and dip. After being in the dip overnight, the fleas were still alive. Dawn dish soap kills fleas.This dip doesn't.
