Advice for cat who hates being treated for fleas

  • I have one cat who hates being treated for fleas. He's super smart and knows what it sounds like when we open the tube. We've tried sneaking up on him but like I said he's super smart. What else can we try?

  • Hey there and thanks for your question!


    This is a really common issue as cats dislike the strong chemical smell and sensation of the cold liquid on their skin.

    It can help to apply the liquid when they are aslepp, using the tip of the nozzle to part the fur (rather than your hand), to be extra speedy.


    However, it is also an option to use an alternative product. Your vet can issue a prescription tablet (like Credelio or Capstar) or a prescription flea/tick collar like Seresto.
