Why am I seeing more fleas on my pet after applying ITCH Flea?

Don’t be alarmed!

We know it’s strange, but it’s actually completely normal to start seeing more fleas or more signs of scratching when you have first applied Itch. 

In the first 48 hours especially, the fipronil makes the fleas hyperactive, driving them a bit crazy. This means you may see more or notice your pet is scratching as a last attempt to escape and survive. Rest assured these will be gone and your pet will be flea-free before you know it! 

It is also possible that if fleas are in your pet’s environment, they will keep jumping onto your pet! Be sure to treat your home too, as 95% of fleas actually live in your pet’s environment.

Our vet, Zoe, has helped us out by letting us know all the reasons your pet might still be scratching after applying Itch here.
