Using the same proven flea control ingredient as Frontline Plus, Spectra Sure Plus provides effective control of flea, tick and chewing lice infestations. Fipronil is capable of attacking adult fleas and ticks on contact, while Etofenprox enhances the efficacy of the formula.
Full Pest Protection
Using the dual action of Fipronil and Etofenprox, Spectra Sure will effectively break the flea life cycle by eliminating pests on cats quickly and effectively. This formula will kill adult fleas and ticks in as quickly as 1 hour after application. Not only effective against fleas, Spectra Sure also controls mites, ticks and chewing lice.
The importance of controlling pests goes beyond relieving a nuisance, it may also help to prevent infections. Mites may cause sarcoptic mange, while ticks have been linked to the transmission of Lyme disease. Fleas may also be a source of flea allergy dermatitis.
Spectra Sure is safe to use on kittens over 12 weeks of age. This resilient formula remains effective after bathing and exposure to water and sunlight.
Box includes six 0.50-milliliter tubes of Spectra Sure Plus for cats.
Remove product tubes from the package. Separate one tube from the others. Holding the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body, cut off the narrow end at the notches with scissors.
How to apply
While holding the cat with one hand, use the other hand to apply the solution. Invert the tube and use the narrow end to part the cat's hair. Apply contents of one tube of Spectra Sure™ Plus for cats as a spot between the shoulder blades. Hold the cat for a few seconds to give the solution time to be absorbed into the cat's coat. When finished, wrap the tube in paper and put into the trash. Only one applicator per treatment is needed.

Product back order/possibly was discontinued by Tom from Warrensburg, NY12/16/2012
It was a good product but recently no longer available at our local pet supply store, so I ordered it online. After a lengthy back order, it appears to have been discontinued, at least from Entirely Pets.
Effective less than a day by hptoolhead12/01/2012
Unfortunately, this product seemed to be effective for only a few hours in a house of 6 always indoor cats. Having 4 cats of your own and 2 long term fosters, you look for price breaks on supplies. This one was a poor choice for me I won't make again.
Not sure it works... by Blackjacksbuddy01/26/2015
Have used this product two months running, actually used it the second time before the first month was up... the cat STILL has fleas. Doesn't seem to be very effective. Have also given the cat several flea baths in between so I can't say that this has helped kill anything....
It Works! by Madcats from Rutherfordton NC07/17/2013
I was using Frontline Plus but it kept getting more and more expensive so I switched to Spectra and I also use Advantage. They both work just as good as Frontline Plus.
