Advantage flea killer for cats

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A while ago there was an article on flea & tick killer than was deemed unsafe for cats, I have since forgotten which brands were bad.

I just purchased Advantage flea killer (purple box) for my 2 cats. I used to use Frontline Plus. I just want to make sure this wasnt the product that was deemed unsafe.

Advantage is what my vet recommends for my CRF kitties. I presume it is safe, from everything that I've read. I only use it every 6 weeks or so, and only during the summer months. I use a full dose on non-CRF Lola, and 1/2 dose on Cleo & Maggie, who are CRF. It seems to work fine, as I've never had a flea infestation.

This is all I use, and I have had no probs. It works wonderfully! I haven't heard anything bad about it either, but just like every product-if you search for bad reviews you would get some, not everyone is going to like something. LoL.

Ok I guess it's safe then. I wasnt talking about bad reviews, but serious health concerns from the product that were found. Again, I havent heard anything bad about it, I just wanted to double check.

I used advantage for years but use frontline now. I never had a Cat get sick from either.

Perhaps you're thinking of Advantix? It's a flea medicine for dogs, but it's toxic to cats. There have also been some reports of side effects to ProMeris, which is still a very new medicine, but I haven't heard anything official.

I've used Advantage, Frontline, and Revolution and never had any problems with any of them.

Advantage is the only one we use because it is the product our Vet approves for Sierra with her special crf kidneys.
