Repelled, Did NOT Kill by ScorpioMaurus from Milwaukee, WI11/05/2011
A Huge waste of $40 the fleas stay off the kittens now and just attack us while we walk through the room it did NOT kill the fleas. I normally use Frontline but wanted to save a bit of money, Now I have to purchase Frontline for the next treatment so I didn't save anything.
