Its actions last for up to a month, and it prevents fleas from hatching and developing for two months. Vectra 3D repels by creating a 'hot foot' reaction. Fleas, ticks and other parasites come into contact with your dog's coat or skin, and become exposed to Vectra 3D. They retreat back up hair shafts without biting, and soon die. Mosquitoes sense the active ingredients of Vectra 3D, and 80% of the time, avoid dogs without landing. Vectra 3D is a topically applied liquid used monthly.

        SKIN CANCER CAUSED BY THE SUN IN YOUR CAT

Cats are even better sun worshipers than people and most of them can lie in it all day without burning or damaging their skin. However, this is not true for some cats - like pale skinned people, cats with white non-pigmented areas of skin (often with only a sparse covering of hair) can suffer damage to the skin which can be very serious. The area's most commonly affected are the ear flaps, the nose and the eyelids. Initially the damage to the skin will show as a pink area with perhaps some scaling and hair loss. 

However, continued exposure will lead to more serious crusting of the skin. If this is not treated and the cat is not protected from the sun, then a serious skin condition called squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) can develop. This is a malignant tumour which will spread locally, destroying the surrounding tissue. It can also occasionally spread to other parts of the body such as the lymph nodes or lungs. As the condition gets more serious the skin looks very red and there may be ulcerated areas with raised hardened edges on the ears, eyelids, nose, lips and face. Bleeding from the lesions can be a major problem in some cats.


 








Treatment will depend on the severity of the condition. If skin damage is only minor then your vet may suggest that you simply keep the cat in during the hottest part of the day (between 10 am and 3pm). Some cats will tolerate a sunblock of factor 15 or more on the vulnerable parts; however, cats being cats, most will groom it off fairly quickly! 
 
If your vet considers the skin damage to be more serious, he or she may suggest that a tissue sample or biopsy is taken and sent to a specialist to ascertain if SCC has developed. Although only small samples of tissue are taken for the biopsy, there will inevitably be a small defect in the ear-flap thereafter. The cat will have to undergo a general anesthetic for the biopsy to be taken.

If the biopsy shows that the cat is suffering from SCC, your vet may suggest that the tumour is removed surgically. Obviously the sooner this can be done the better, preventing further invasion of the surrounding tissue. The surgery will aim to remove the affected skin and a margin around it to prevent recurrence. Removing ear flaps may affect the look of the cat somewhat, but it can be done fairly easily. If the problem is on the eyelid or nose then surgery can be considerably more difficult. Other treatment options including radiotherapy, photo-dynamic treatment, cryosurgery and heat treatment. These treatments aim to destroy the cancer cells and will only work if treated early at the start of the cancer growth.
