    Default Best working spot on flea treatment for cats

    At this point after dealing with fleas for a few weeks, I don't care about ticks or ANYTHING else!!! Come December 3rd when the 4 weeks of hell will be over (I've done 2 months of frontline which did nothing but drain my wallet!!)... what is the best spot on flea treatment can I get for the cats???

    Agreed, Revolution.

    I prefer Advantage Multi for mine, but Revolution is a great product also.

    Ditto Revolution. New dog brought a massive flea infestation with her this summer, and the only one never to have a flea on her was the Revolution-treated cat (and the guinea pig, who also got Revolution once we discovered the problem). Poor dogs were all chewed up, even with Certifect and Frontline Plus.

    I got Revolution, today! Technically it would be Monday before they are due from the Frontline fiasco, but the vet said it was okay. I hope it works! I've heard lots of good things about it!

    I've used Revolution for about 6 years and the only adverse reaction was a burn spot. I notified the company and the vet. Vet took back the dose and gave me a new one.

    Since my cat doesn't go out or associate with other dogs or cats, I just now give it before we travel and a month afterwards. His fecals have been fine with the exception of about a year ago when he picked up a tapeworm undoubtedly from the pet room we stayed in at a motel.

    I'll be a lone voice of dissent, as Revolution no longer kills the fleas on my cats. I'm back to Advantage.
