Treat Fleas on Cats, Feline Heartworms & Other Parasites ..
When Erin took Napoleon to another vet for his rabies shot, she explained that if you have to give your cat the topical every 20 days, it has stopped being effective. The vet offered me a sample of, an oral medication that actually repels fleas–they crawl to the tips of his fur then fall off! It is administered monthly just like the topicals. Its active ingredient is found in mollusks and is better than the topicals at preventing fleas from laying eggs on the cat–although the vet could not really explain how. Comfortis has been around for dogs for a while and was recently approved for use in cats. She monitored Napoleon closely for lethargy and added water to his wet food to make sure he was hydrated. She was advised to give him half the pill in the AM, half in the PM. What’s the catch? Unlike Advantage and Revolution, Comfortis does not prevent heart worm so you have to purchase a heart worm preventative as well and administer it monthly along with the flea treatment. She has been very pleased so far and relieved to find a flea preventative that works!

Revolution is a safe and simple monthly topical medication used to protect your pet from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites. It also protects dogs from ticks and sarcoptic mange and cats from roundworms and hookworms. Revolution for Dogs and Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian. (3 Pack = 3 doses which lasts 3 months.)To purchase Revolution, you need a veterinary prescription. While other topical canine and feline flea and tick control products are available over the counter, they don't contain heartworm control medication. It's important that your vet perform an annual blood test on your pet to ensure he's heartworm-free before prescribing Revolution. Your vet doesn't just prescribe Revolution for cats or dogs, but the correct dosage size for your individual animal. Recommended dosage amounts for cats depend on whether the animal is above or below 5 pounds. Recommend amounts for dogs fall into five basic sizes, ranging from dogs weighing 5 pounds to those 130 pounds and over.Your cat deserves proven protection. You can provide it with REVOLUTIONÂ® (selamectin), a topical medication for cats. It protects against fleas, heartworms and other nasty pests.To apply these flea medications you part the fur at the base of your cat's skull (the back of your cat's neck and right in the middle). Once the skin is visiblesqueeze the tube to apply the solution directly onto the skin. Each of these products (Advantage, Frontline, and Revolution)will kill fleas within 12 hours and will continue to kill fleas for 30 days. Don't put any of these products on your cat moreoften than once every 30 days.The benefit of putting flea medications such as Advantage, Frontline, or Revolution on yourcat is that all you have to do is put a small dab of it on the back of your cat's neck. Yourcat won't be able to reach the spot and won't be able to lick the flea medication off. However,you must be very careful to put the flea medicine in exactly the right spot. If your cat licks it offhe or she will foam at the mouth for a time and will be very distressed (and so will you!). In my opinion Revolution Flea Control is the best flea killer on the market. But not only does it kill fleas it also kills ear mites, roundworm, and hookworm. It is the most effective fleas killer because it gets into the fur that is shed and left in the environment and continues to kill fleas there. So it treats the area as well as the pet. It does tend to be quite a bit pricey compared to some other flea control products but all others pale in comparison. I've had to use other flea control products for months on end before getting the flea problem under control. With Revolution I only need to dose my cats 1 time. And the fleas were under control. One of my cats had terrible ear mites. I bought ear mite medication and just couldn't get the mites under control. After using Revolution Flea Control for Cats just 1 time the mites were gone. It also cleared up the worms in a cat that I rescued.
