Product Description


PROGRAM Flavor Tabs contain Lufenuron,  a very effective insect growth inhibitor which prevents the development of all stages of the flea life cycle. Program Flea Control for Dogs does not kill adult fleas but actually prevents the flea eggs and larvae from developing. This effectively destroys the flea life cycle and the entire flea population.

Fleas are the most commonly found canine and feline parasites and multiply quickly to infest the environment of both pets and humans. It&#39s important to remember that the fleas on your pet are all adult fleas and these can be eliminated by using an adult flea killer like CAPSTAR - but this does not eliminate the entire flea population.

Program Flea Control for Dogs (given as Program Flavor Tabs) and Program Flea Control for Cats (given as Program Suspension) goes to the heart of the problem by targeting the eggs and the larvae and stopping the flea life cycle dead in it&#39s tracks.

In fact, the adult fleas on your pet only represent about 5% of the flea population in your household. Each adult female lays up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime which become larvae, pupae and then adult fleas. So complete flea eradication requires a two-pronged attack with an adult flea killer like Capstar, and a flea life cycle inhibitor like Program Flea Control, as seen below:

Adulticides are flea products designed to destroy all adult fleas living on your pet. Most of them work within a few hours to 24 hours. Here Capstar is a good example. But before they die, adult fleas will have the opportunity to lay thousands of eggs. That&#39s why scientists are in agreement that the best way to prevent and eliminate flea populations is to combine the use of adulticides (like Capstar) with insect growth regulators like Program Flavor Tabs (see below). This is commonly known as Integrated Flea Control.

Insect Growth Regulators were developed by scientists specifically to target the egg and larval stages of the flea life cycle. They do this very effectively by preventing the flea eggs from hatching. So, if you are giving your pets Program Flea Control for Dogs or Program Flea Control for Cats, and they shed any flea eggs around your household, then they will simply die and get sucked up with the vacuum cleaner. So there is no need to spray your home environment or even wash the bedding too often.

How Effective is Program Flea Control?

In a scientific 3 year study conducted in real homes with pets, Lufenuron which is the active ingredient in Program Suspension and Program Flavor Tabs, was proved to be 100% effective in destroying and preventing the further development of flea populations.

Program Flea has been demonstrated to be extremely safe, and in excess of 250 million doses have been sold and administered world-wide over the last 10 years.

Using Program Flea Control all year round is advisable because weather patterns and temperatures can be unpredictable at times. But generally speaking fleas love hot and humid locations and will often hatch out in the spring when colder temperatures subside and it becomes warmer.

That&#39s why, as a responsible pet owner, you should give Program Flea Control for Dogs (Program Flavor Tabs) and Program Flea Control for Cats (Program Suspension) orally once a month. To ensure proper absorption it should be given with your pet&#39s meal and always ensure that all pets in your home are using adequate protection against fleas.

  1. Effective and Safe Flea Control Will Extend the Healthy Life of Your Pet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    We began using Program twenty years ago when it was much more popular in the U.S.A. We were impressed with the safety and efficacy. No one enjoys putting concentrated pesticides on the back of their dog's neck. Products such as Frontline have quit working over the years as well. I believe Confortis to be extremely toxic to dogs and other pets. It is an oral ingestion of a spanosid pesticide. This type of product may be used safely in some agricultural and horticultural capacities. But there is a warning not to use it on flowering plants as it can poison bees. It is quite simply a dangerous poison for your pet. A large percentage of pets get sick the first time they ingest it. I'm sure it can cause death when used over time.

    For some reason, Program is no longer manufactured in the U.S. by Novartis. One report blamed it on the closure of a manufacturing plant. The Program sold by the Flea Treatment Center is a safe and reliable product which is still manufactured by Novartis. It is legal to import this product from South Africa. We have been doing this for several years since discovering the Flea Treatment Center. Buy an unknown, unregulated product on eBay at your own risk.

    Program inhibits the development of chitin in flea larvae. The infant fleas die when the eggs hatch. It is most effective when used twelve months out of the year. As long as the other dogs that your pet associates with have adequate flea control, there seems to be little risk of picking up adult fleas from the environment. But if your pet does get a few fleas at the dog park, these fleas will not be able to reproduce.
