|Vectra 3D is a seriously harsh chemical. Up until recently I had been using it on Mulder with no ill effect- HOWEVER, reading the warning label on the back is like reading a disclaimer for nuclear waste.
There is no totally, 100% "safe" topical flea treatment. They are all pesticides, and all hard on the dog's body. It is, as was stated, a choice between the lesser of two evils. Mulder is very allergic to fleas, and NEEDS some kind of treatment to keep him from being a miserable, icing mess... but I believe next season I will be switching to Advantage. Its safer, if for no other reason that it doesn't drop cats dead on contact, as the 3D apparently does
