Cat Flea Treatment

fleas - flea repellent - flea treatmentWe applied Promeris flea treatment to the back of my cats neck last night. Nows its almost 2 PM the next day, and i still see a few fleas on my cat, and they are just jumping around like there is no problem. How long does it take for the flea treatment to start working? I paid a lot of money for that Promeris.

its when they bite the cat that they get the power of the Promeris. it might take another day of two to get rid of all the fleas.

Warning on Cat Flea Treatment

Never use flea treatment marketed for dogs on a cat without first checking with your vet. While some canine flea treatment can safely be used on cats, many are toxic and can quickly kill a cat. Also be cautious of natural flea treatment containing essential oils, like lavender or eucalyptus oils. Cats cannot metabolize the compounds in many essential oils and can go into liver failure if exposed to them. Always read and follow packaging directions on any flea treatment, especially if it says it is not safe for kittens or pregnant or nursing cats. If you decide to use DE, buy food grade DE online or from a pet or health food store. It is also sold for pool filters, but the pool filter DE contains other chemicals and is not safe for other uses.
