PROGRAM (Lufenuron) flea control for cats and kittens comes in a Suspension form. This product controls Fleas by breaking the flea life cycle at the egg stage and prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing. PROGRAM Suspension contains Lufenuron, an insect development inhibitor that stops the development of immature stages of the flea. It is important that all pets in the household, both dogs, and cats should be treated with PROGRAM Flea Control to ensure fleas donít reproduce on untreated dogs and cats and prevents farther infestations.
Effectively eliminates the flea population!
PROGRAM Suspension is administered once a month by mixing into a small amount of wet food. To ensure complete absorption, follow it with a regular meal to ensure proper absorption. For PROGRAM Suspension to work its full benefits be sure to use the recommended dosage. PROGRAM does not have effect on the adult fleas but it does control flea populations by breaking the flea life cycle at the egg stage. Each packet includes 6 dose providing 6 months of total protection for your cat.
Fleas have a life cycle of 4 parts: adult, egg, larva, and pupa. Flea populations include: 5% adults, 50% eggs, 35% larvae, and 10% pupae. The life cycle from egg to adult can be rapid or slow, varying from two weeks to eight months. This is dependent on a variety of factors: humidity, temperature, and availability of food, the blood of your pet.

Lufenuron Per Tablet
Up to 10 lbs
11 to 20 lbs
Cats over 20 lbs should receive the appropriate combination of packs.
Lufenuron is stored in the animal's body fat and transferred to adult fleas through their bite. Adult fleas transfer it to their eggs by its presence in the mother flea's blood, or by the larva feeding on pre-digested blood. This breaks the flea life cycle.
After biting a PROGRAM Suspension treated cat, the female flea ingests a blood meal containing Lufenuron which is subsequently deposited in her eggs. Lufenuron prevents flea eggs from hatching and developing into adults and controls flea populations by breaking the life cycle.
To break the flea life cycle and stop further infestation.
To prevent harm to you and your pet, read the entire label and enclosed directions before each use. Follow all directions and precautionary statements carefully. Avoid contact with eyes, and wash your hands thoroughly after each use. USE ON CATS ONLY. Do not use on other animals.
Great purchase.... works every time! We never have a problem giving it to the cats and they don't seem to mind eating it in their food. We have been using it for years and are totally happy with it.
Very effective in decreasing fleas by Playa Cat Mom from So. California06/28/2012
I followed up the Capstar with Program, and the amount of fleas has decreased, first because of Capstar, and then because of the effectiveness of Program. Highly recommend.
Easy by doncraud311/15/2011
I have used the chewable form of flea control for my cats and it worked well. This is a liquid that must be mixed in with food. It is asy to use. My cats are enjoying a flea free Fall season!
Best find ever by Agsmom from Rock Hill, sc10/31/2011
This is the only way to deflea my kitty girl. She will not take pills and the surface methods give her as much trouble as the fleas.
An effective solution by Vera01/15/2008
I struggled to control a flea infestion in my apartment last summer and that product really helped me a lot, especially combined with Advantage applied to the back of my cat neck
Seems to work by Trish from Lisbon Falls, Maine12/27/2012
I use this product with a lot of success on a semi feral cat that doesn't like to be touched. It's so easy to put it in her food. Haven't' noticed any fleas since I started using this.
Good purchase by sport12/08/2012
Fast shipping, great prices, EPA registered but one of the pouches of program was empty. Not Entirely Pets fault.
Doesn't work by Mandy from Maryland01/09/2012
Even after 2 months of use, the cats still have fleas. This product did not work at all.
Keeps Flea Eggs From Hatching by playa pet mom from Playa del Rey, CA10/27/2012
I used Capstar to kill the fleas on my cats, then follow up monthly with Program to keep flea eggs from hatching. While my cats do still have a few fleas, Program has really gotten a good handle on the flea population. There are no side affects like there are with the products that supposedly kill fleas - Frontline and Advantage- which make my cats really sick and gives them nervous tremors, and they don't do much toward getting rid of fleas.
Seems effective. by Georgie from Florida03/07/2013
I have 2 dogs and 2 indoor cats. The dogs brought the fleas inside. I used a leading topical flea product on the dogs and one of the cats. On my other cat (who has skin issues unrelated to fleas) I did not want to put anything on her skin so I used the oral susension Program. Most of the time, out of the 4 pets, she would be the only one whom we would comb and not find any fleas!?!? Novartis clearly has had some production issues, but I wish they would get the Program products back out on the market.
I don't know why it is not working. I used this on both of my cats and still with the fleas. I have swept the floors every day...washed the bedding...put powder on the carpets...sprayed the upholstrey and no good.
Consistently Great by ttBrendaRose from Nanaimo BC Canada12/04/2011
I have always used this product on my pets. I like it and so do they. It works!
Great for a Skittish Cat by Twinsmom from Willamette Valley, Oregon10/23/2011
My senior kitty does not like to be held still and so applying external flea control products was a really difficult and scarey experience for him. Program, however, is a capsule that I empty onto and mix in with his canned food once a month. It's easy and he has never refused to eat his meal as he's been known to do with other "medicine" that I've tried to sneak by him that way.
Program Flea Control for Cats by Pamela05/06/2012
I have always used Program for my cats because it is so simple and since using it have never seen a flea. However they stopped selling it in New Zealand and Australia so I have now ordered it from USA and am very glad to have found this method of obtaining a product which I am so satisfied with.
Suspension flea control for cats by Olivia10/24/2010
We are so pleased with this product. We feed an orphan female cat that we are trying to tame but we still cannot touch her. We felt so sorry for her watching her scratching and biting her fleas. I searched for a product for flea control that could be put in food. Entirely Pets is the only website I found that carries this product. It works very well and the cat does not detect it in her food. We've been giving it to her for several months without any side effects whatsoever.
Good for squirrely cats by Abby01/20/2013
We have a cat that came out of a feral colony. Although she is basically tame, she will not come to us. In order to keep her flea free, we have no choice but to use an alternative to spot on meds.Program allows us to keep fleas out of the house by treating her, without having to touch her. If not for Program, I don't know what we would do.
Best for the pet by Rick06/08/2011
Program is somewhat slow to suppress an infestation, because it is not a poison. But over time, it works beautifully, without chemicals that have caused our cats real discomfort. If you give Program consistently, starting a bit before flea season, this product is outstanding.
No More Fleas! by Sam from Florida11/06/2012
When my cat & I moved back to Florida, I was shocked to discover fleas. We hadn't had flea issues since he was a kitten (he's 10 now), and I was struggling to find something that would get rid of the fleas once and for all. My cat is sensitive to topical flea treatments, so I was thrilled when I discovered oral flea control. Combined with the Capstar pills, Program works like a charm! After two months of treatments, the fleas were obliterated! We continue to use Program, and we've had no fleas in the last two years! We've even added another kitty to our home, and she's flea-free, too. Since it has to be mixed with food, it's a treat every month for my cats to get some canned food.
Very good product by Glo from North Carolina12/29/2011
I was surprised at how easily my cat took the medicine in his food. It apparently tasted good to him and I have not seen any fleas since! He had never allowed us to put Frontline or anything else on the back of his neck, so this was a godsend!
Program for Ferals by black cats from Mount Pleasant, SC11/03/2011
Program is the only monthly flea control product I have found to treat 10 feral cats that I have been feeding. Since you cannot touch the cats, topical treatment is not an option. However, Program is easy to put in their food.
I have been very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone caring for cats.
No More Fleas by Seven Black Cats from Mount Pleasant, SC10/04/2011
Last fall, I became the care provider for seven feral cats. This summer fleas were a definite problem for us, and most certainly for the cats. Since you cannot handle feral cats, treatment was a big issue. I called every vet in town to find something I could use, but had no luck. I turned to the Internet and found my answer to the problem at Entirely Pets. Program Flea Control for Cats by Norvartis was the answer. Programs Flea Control is a liquid that I add to a little tuna and treat the Cats every month. Finding this product has been a blessing for the cats, and me, too!! NO MORE FLEAS! NO MORE MISERY! Thanks to Entirely Pets and Norvartis for providing a product that meets the need of these special animals.
Made my day by cb from The great state of TEXAS03/06/2013
In the past, I have ordered this product from 1-800petmeds. Well, when I tried to order it this time, they called to tell me they were cancelling my order because they had NO idea when they would get this product available to ship to customers. So I went back to the web and found this company and Not only did you have my product but it was almost $10 less total. So I am now your customer and look forward to many years of shopping with you.
Great product by Jo from San Francisco Bay Area12/06/2012
Easy to use and cost effective. I prefer it to toxic chemicals on my pets' bodies.
Cat was OK with suspension but did better with pill form. No longer available.
No Fleas Please by brandy02/18/2013
I have used Program for Cats before. This product worked then, so I am trying it again with a topical flea product. That is what I had to do before to get rid of the fleas. I have been very pleased with this product. This time I also got some for my daughter whose cat is fighting fleas. Sure she will be as satisfied as I am.
program good for feral cats by jmc04/24/2012
We have two feral cats in our yard that we feed. The come up to our screen door to converse and sniff noses with our indoor-only cats. One of the ferals likes to rub the length of her body along the screen. We were afraid that the feral cats transfer fleas to our indoor cats. Program is easy to mix in the ferals' food. Our feral cats also enjoyed the Program treats. So far, no fleas have jumped ship and come indoors.
Perfect Problem Solution by Cat from Mt. Pleasant, SC06/27/2012
I care for 10 feral cats that are in and out of my garage regularly. I had to find a solution to the flea problem and PROGRAM was the Perfect Solution to my Problem. Since I cannot touch the cats, an oral suspension was my only answer. I have been using PROGRAM by Norvartis for two years and have been very pleased. It is a safe product and very effective.
