What is the difference between over-the-counter and prescription oral flea and tick medication?

The difference between over-the-counter and prescription oral flea and tick medication is that you need a vet to prescribe the latter. The ingredients in prescription medications are more carefully controlled and regulated, so dosing can be more precise and possibly safer. Many prescription treatments are more effective than over-the-counter products, as well. Your vet can give you the most up-to-date information on what works well and what may be a good choice for your cat.

What are the differences between cat oral flea and tick pills and chewable tablets?

The differences between oral flea and tick pills and chewable tablets include flavoring and best methods of administration. Oral flea and tick pills usually do not contain flavoring. To administer these, you can either use your regular method for pilling your cat, hide them in a treat, or crush and sprinkle them on food. Chewable tablets are usually flavored, larger than ordinary pills, and designed to be eaten by the cat like a treat. If your cat is difficult to pill and finicky about chewable tablets, you may want to try a topical flea treatment.
