  1. Cats wash themselves all the time. It’d be important to learn more about the toxicity of this product. For instance, a product that might make a flea sterile and that can not otherwise poison a cat pretty much at any dose would be helpful. But a product that frantically drops a flea dead at its early convenience to make the customer happy as quickly as possible isn’t a very smart strategy IMO.

  2. My cat HATES it! But I do it.

  3. I wish my cat was as compliant as that one!

    Lol! I prefer the spray.

  6. EquinatureProducts

    these products are all highly TOXIC people and there were 44,000 reactions and 1600pets diued last year! The EPA is reviewing all products and requesting new safety testing on all collars sprays shampoos and spot on treatments . Check out the equinature products 100% safe and nontoxic..and NOT on the RECALL LIST

  7. I just put this on my dog and he is pissed at me big time

  8. I tell you pet lovers how to rid your dog of fleas..Truck wash is good korosine but mix it with water and only rub it on the fur the little buggers smell it and take off or do the same with a can of bug spray but when your done spray a bit under your arm just in case they think of settling in at your body and if so try rubbing real nice smelling pufume on yourself (and the dog) they dont like that much as well, If none of these work (if you cant beat them join them) try training them .

  9. this fucking shit sucks ass, if ur dog has tick hair, it a mission to find skin, fucking 40 bucks and its the worse shit ever!

  10. Food grade diatomaceous earth is a great flea preventative/treatment for people & critters. Please, no more poisons (including bombs of course & flea collars)!!!You give them poisons then wonder why they get sick in the long-run?!Don’t have a priest-like relationship with vets…question them, do your research on alternatives, stand on your own 2feet.We leave it to conventional vets at times because we are lazy. research.Raw, drug-free diets also go along way to stronger, healthier cats & dogs

  11. The best, healthiest & most effective treatment is food grade DIATOMACEOUS EARTH.Give it time to see results.Then keep giving it..make sure cats/dogs have access to drinking h2o! So DON’T use poisonous chemicals or drugs!!!Don’t do that to them.Vacuum a lot.Regular flea combing helps too.Take a flea comb, big bowl of hot water & toilet paper.Have pieces of tp ready. After combing the cats & finding fleas or flea eggs, wrap fur/fleas in tp,put in hot water, flush.Don’t flush too much tp at once!

  12. don’t use these damaging products..vets can be so irresponsible at times. Are you getting a kickback on your site or in the vet’s office for selling/touting these products

  16. the cat is so huge!! 😉

  17. Ones must remember all cats have 9 lives..in this case maybe 8 left only…

  18. I have to trick my kitty. I prep the tube, then snag the cat. A few seconds after I dose her, she freaks, and runs off and hides for awhile. She must either feel or taste the meds. Doesn’t matter which brand. Poor kitty.

  19. same for one of my kitty cats! It’s just a huge ordeal…but I have to get back to doing this…
