Question from karen v.

I have a question about topical flea products. Last season, I used a name brand topical flea product with (S)-Methoprene and Etofenprox on two of my cats.

Our vet answers:

If the cats are indoor cats then you can use Advantage or Advantage II as these products tend to work better than Frontline. Other options for fleas include Program Suspension or Capstar.

You can use Capstar any time that you see fleas on your pets but do not give them more than one treatment per day.....
