Question from Tammy Otis

I have given my cat Adams spot-on and It has not gotten rid of any fleas.I put It on him May 26.My question is, how long do I need to wait to put advantage on him

Our Vet Says:

Dear Tammy,

 Because the active ingredients of the two products do not appertain to the same chemical group you can use Advantage after two weeks from the Adams treatment. Please wash the cat before the Advantage treatment and allow two days to pass from the bath to the application of the flea product. Also please read the manufacturer’s instructions for application. It is very important that the content of the pipette is placed directly on the skin. Also you need to pay attention to two more aspects:

- Treatment of the environment; 95% of the flea population is found in the pet’s close environment so you need to use an insecticidal product in your house as well.
- Fleas are hosts for worms so you need to use a deworming product as well; in adult cats worming treatments should be done every three months.

I bought advantage 2 for my dogs. I have 4 and three of them weigh about the same. The smaller one weighs about 25 lbs. I need to know why the advantage is not working on them and also if you could recommend a flea and tick medicine that will work. They stay inside more than out. My girls are itching up a storm and I feel bad for them. Please help us. BTW Sable was a few months younger in the picture. Thanks, D. Ford ...?
