How Itch Flea works

  • Ingredients

    Fipronil
    Attacks the central nervous systems of fleas and kills them within 24 hours and ticks within 48 hours. Sucks to be you, fleas.

    (S) Methoprene 
    Directly penetrates flea eggshells, preventing flea larvae and pupae from developing. So long, suckers.

  • THE FLEA LIFE CYCLE

    flea-life-cycle

  • Where do fleas come from?

    Did you know that just 5 fleas on an untreated pet can lead to more than 1 million eggs infesting your home in only 4 weeks*? Gulp. But where do they come from?

    Most fleas come into contact with your pet from the environment. From the garden, to the pub and the park, it can feel like nowhere is safe from the blighters. 

    Wildlife such as foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels and rabbits can be flea-carrying culprits, bringing them into your garden ready for your dog or cat to pick up.

    Anyone who comes into your home (human and pet alike) can unknowingly carry fleas in with them. 

    Believe us when we say prevention really is better than cure. Adult fleas can lurk within your home for up to 5 months before hatching. So even if you think you have previously dealt with an infestation, it could still come back unexpectedly.


    *Based on an untreated pet having 5 fleas not being groomed off, each laying 50 eggs per day, developing into new fleas in 14 days and new fleas jumping on and laying more eggs.

  • How to tell if your pet has fleas

    Symptoms of flea infestation in your pet can include itching, scratching, visible flea dirt, hair loss from overgrooming or skin irritation. It can also include mysterious insect bites popping up on you, as well. 

    5 fleas on an untreated pet can lead to 1 million + eggs infesting your home in as little as 4 weeks*. That’s why it’s important you give your kitty their flea treatment every month to stop any unwanted lodgers moving in.

    Top tip: If you think you’ve found flea dirt, run a damp cotton wool pad over it. If the dirt turns red, those fleas aren’t dead. This means you’re dealing with a live infestation.

    Our double action, spot-on flea treatment for cats and dogs, Itch Flea, kills adult fleas within 24 hours, halts all other flea life stages in their tracks and stops any new fleas joining the party, protecting your pet until their next monthly treatment. Plus it kills ticks and lice!

  • How to get rid of fleas

    Itch Flea spot-on treatment is super easy to apply - once the solution from the pipette is applied to your pet' skin between their shoulder blades, you can put your feet up, safe in the knowledge they’ll be protected for the next 4 weeks! 

    Our spot-on flea treatment for cats and dogs:

    ✓ Kills fleas already living on your pet within 24 hours
    ✓ Kills any new fleas that jump onto your pet , any time in the next month
    ✓ Prevents eggs and larvae developing
    ✓ Kills adult ticks attached to your pet and lice within 48 hours
    ✓ Protects your pet and your home

  • Why use spot-on treatment?

    Using a flea spot-on treatment for cats and dogs is a super quick and easy way to get rid of fleas and keep your pet and home flea-free.

    For some pet parents, giving their furry friend a tablet can be a real ordeal. Spare yourself (and your pet) the stress by treating them with a spot-on flea treatment.

    As we always say, prevention is better than cure. Itch Flea attacks fleas at all life stages to help keep your pet (and your home) flea-free. This means you can avoid needing to resort to flea bombs. It’s a real faff needing to evacuate your home for hours while it works, not to mention adequately airing out the space after so it’s safe for pets and humans alike to go back inside!

I have seen so many dogs and cats suffering because they weren’t treated for fleas and worms in time. Not only that, it can be dangerous for families too. That’s why I love the Itch personalised flea plan. It makes it so easy to protect your pet and never miss a treatment.

  • Is your packaging recyclable?

    Itch Flea comes in a recyclable box which can be disposed of in your home recycling bin. The foil and pipette for Itch Flea aren’t currently recyclable (but we’re working on it). 

    Your goodies will arrive either in a cardboard box which can be recycled at home and is made of recycled materials or our brand-new mailer bags which are made from Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and contain recycled materials. They’re fully recyclable, waterproof, strong, and of course – still personalised!

    Our new bags are much smaller in size and weight than the cardboard boxes which means that we can fit more packages in our courier’s lorries. This means they have a more efficient  journey to your doorstep, reducing our carbon footprint as well as consumer waste. You can recycle them at your local supermarket - find your nearest here

    Absolutely! Once you get started, we’ll make recommendations for your pet’s personalised wellness plan. This will include Itch Wormer. Given in combo with Itch Flea, this will give your pet total parasite protection against fleas, ticks, worms AND lice.
