We are aware and very concerned that there are a number of non-factual statements circulating on facebook regarding one of our products marketed under the EXELPETTM brand - FleabanTM Insecticidal Spray.
We would like to reassure all consumers that EXELPETTM FleabanTM Insecticidal Spray remains an effective treatment for fleas in cats and dogs. Our first priority is always the health of pets and we fully investigate any reported issues that may arise with our products.
EXELPET Fleaban Insecticidal Spray contains the ‘active’ ingredient Pyrethrin. (the ingredient that is effective on fleas).
Pyrethrin is a natural extract derived from chrysanthemum plants and has been used as a safe and effective insecticide for over 100 years. It is commonly used in many readily available flea treatment products such as shampoos, powders and sprays.
As with all medications and treatments, it is important to follow the directions on the label and use with care.
like people, some animals may be more sensitive to certain ingredients and may experience mild to moderate symptoms after use, known as side-effects. If these symptoms are worrying then we advise people to seek immediate veterinarian advice.
EXELPET products are extensively tested before they are released to market to make sure they are well within safe limits as set out by the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Association (APVMA). The APVMA is the regulatory body in Australia that governs the use of all veterinary medicines including all EXELPET flea treatment products.
