Best Flea prevenative for cats?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I noticed last night Puff had a flea on his chin. So what is the best flea topical to get for cats?

I use Frontline on my dog.

We recommend either Frontline or Revolution (which is a prescription product).

I used to use Frontline and this past summer I switched to Revolution. I switched because my vet quit carrying Frontline and only carried Revolution. She said it is about the same price and also prevents ear mites, heart worm, and intestinal parasites.

I prefer Frontline because since my cats adoption, i've only had to use them in just around the time I adopted them. First cats, I applied frontline twice or so.. and my second cat, only one time when I got him. No problems since.

I use Revolution because it has the lowest side effects,and my cat reacts adversely to some medications.

Gizmo is an indoor cat and never has fleas but we are in heartworm country so you can't be too careful about mosquito bites on ktty.

CAPSTAR FOR CATS
Take a look at the following site, this is the medicine most recommended in my cat care books for fleas on cats. http://www.capstar.novartis.us/cat/en/label.shtml

If Capstar is used, you need to still follow it up with a topical medication. Capstar is considered a "quick kill" medication and only works for up to 4 hours.

We use Revolution as it covers ear mites as well.

Ear mites are not a big concern of mine. My company makes a solution that cures ear mites and keeps the ears nice and clean.
