Let's talk about the best flea products on the market for cats. There are many that are designed to kill fleas on your cat. The first thing to do is get advice from your veterinary clinic. A lot of products can be toxic unfortunately, over the counter products especially so it's always recommended to talk to your veterinary clinic when you're trying to figure out what is the best flea product for your cat. There are multiple products. Advantage is one, Frontline Plus is another. These are types of products designed to be placed topically between the shoulder blades once a month. Make sure you're getting the correct product, make sure you're getting the correct product for the size of animal and the type of animal and make sure there are no age restrictions. So, again, talk to your regular clinic or your veterinary clinic first to make sure you're getting the right product. Advantage kills fleas, whereas a product like Frontline Plus has an IGR or Insect Growth Regulator in it. Insect Growth Regulators control flea egg, prevents flea eggs from hatching and so you get that added benefit of breaking the flea life cycle within your home. If you have multiple cats it is best, if you have any flea problems, to treat all of them and also to treat your cats that go outside.
