Summary: The best flea treatment for cats is definitely a monthly spot on treatment from Front-line, Advantage or Revolution. Natural cat treatments are awesome but remember that some products and even a number of essential oils are highly toxic to cats. I am sure that you don’t want to put your cat’s health at risk! Unfortunately, many people recommend them, I have even seen a number of fairly reputable websites saying that it’s perfectly safe. However, at the end of the day, it’s your job to protect your cats from these dangerous flea removal methods.
Advantage Ii Flea Treatment For Large Cats Over Lbs
My daughter brought a kitten home that the lady neglected to tell her was infested with fleas. I came home within the hour and could see them crawling on the kittens nose! It was horrible. Straight to the vet because I was worried about using a treatment as he was only 9 weeks. The vet said due to the severity, use Frontline. We treated him and our 2 other cats(as a precaution) and the fleas were gone within 36 hours and we haven’t had a problem since.
On a side note, one of our other cats was bitten by one of the fleas. He developed Hemobartonella. It is carried by fleas from one infected cat to another. He passed away 3 weeks later from the disease. So, be wary when your cat has fleas. If they become withdrawn/not eating/drinking, get them to the vet ASAP. We did, and spent about $600 trying to save him with steroids and antibiotics and he passed away anyway.
