I feel that it is safe to use and experienced no problems with it having used it off and on for several years.
after application. I have not seen any favorable results. The cats are scratching more than ever.
It's not meant to be long-lasting, but rather quick relief and to maintain a flea free pet between topical flea meds.
DID NOTHING TO THE FLEA PROBLEM, THEY STILL HAD THE FLEAS.
Because we live in front of a small park full of small mammals, I am concerned that both, especially Phoebe need back-up. Imagine last year she made friends with a skunk, I saw them cavorting through the dark. So, Advantage alone was not enough. I got bitten by flies when she returned home.
This week the sound I heard several nights at the patio door was made by a racoon, then there are many wild rabbits. This is life next door to nature and the many perils for domestic animals.
The season will be handled well with the monthly dose of Advantage plus the CAPSTAR
Blue that covers the weight range in both animals. I was bitten last year because Phoebe spent nights outdoors. This time I am prepared to handle before I get an infestation.
I like the service, fast shipping and good prices.
