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 don’t 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.

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.
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.
great product by clatchfo from Davis CA08/15/2014
I've used Program on both my cats, and the fleas never come back! I highly recommend this product for anyone who wants to keep the fleas away. (Highly recommend you give your pet some Capstar first though)
worst customer service by unsatisfied customer05/05/2014
the product i like, its the service through 'entirely pets' that is poor...i made an order and soon after received a message that the product was back ordered. i sent an email a week later inquiring about when more would be available and received no response. still no response after a second email inquiry about the order two weeks or so after that.
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!
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.
not happy by Stormy08/21/2013
Never received this product but was charged for it. Wrote to your company but never received an answer to my inquiry. This was the first time I had ordered for a year because I was unhappy with the company before and this just makes me know why I was so unhappy!!!!!!!!!!
by Bobbie from Hampton, VA01/04/2012
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.
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.
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.
Never Scratch Again by buddy from Lake Mary, FL11/05/2013
Have used Program for Cats in the 6 month size for over 15 years! Never see any itching, scratching, or biting related to fleas. We live in FL where there are bugs year around and 2 of my cats loved to be outdoors, so were often in areas where they could have picked up fleas. No problem. This flea protection really works. My current cat is more of a scaredy cat and likes the indoors, and it keeps her flea free as well.
Program by rosco79810/30/2013
I have not yet received the product I am being asked to review.
unable to review by arbocher from Boynton Beach FL09/16/2013
I would love to review this product but since it has been on eternal backorder I am not able to do so. I would not have purchased the Capstar if I had known it was going to be such a long wait for the Orange tabs. (Same with tapeworm tabs).
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 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.
