Both cats and dogs need preventive products for fleas and ticks. If you are the head of a household where cats reside together, you may be tempted to get one flea and tick treatment for both. It’s essential that you do your research carefully before using any product on your pets that have not been obviously prescribed for them, and this is mainly the case with flea and tick treatments. Cats have different physiologies, and these products affect them differently. Canine formulations of flea and tick preventive products can be lethal for cats, so you cannot use the same medication on your cats — unless it has especially formulations for both species. Here are some treatments that can be used:
External Anti Parasitic Program S7 for Cats. Oral Solution
It is an external deworming non-insecticide treatment oral suspension for cats to inhibit the multiplication of fleas by unviable eggs. Can be used in all cats, including pregnant females and kittens who feed on solid food. This product is especially effective against the dominant flea species in the cat. The ampoules are administered orally mixed with food. It should be given in a single monthly dose, preferably on the same day of the month.

When considering a flea and tick preventive product for your cat, always read the label carefully to be sure the product has a tag for use in cats. When treating very young animals, those that are very old or debilitated, and those that are pregnant or nursing, always ask for your veterinarian’s advice before choosing a product. The instructions on the label should be followed when applying or giving any medication to your cat.
