Instructions

  • Remove one applicator tube from the blister package.
  • Hold the applicator tube in an upright position.
  • Press cap down until it clicks (indicating that the tube has been punctured). (See Figure 1.) Hold upright and remove cap. Check to be sure there is an opening at the tip of the tube.
  • Part the hair on the neck at the base of the head until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube directly above the skin and squeeze the tube 2-4 times to expel the contents of the tube directly on the skin. For best results, apply at the base of the head, not between shoulder blades. Avoid getting the product in your pet's eyes or mouth. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for the cat to directly lick the product. Do not allow your cat to ingest this product. (There may be a small residual remaining in the tube after a full dose is expelled).
  • Discard the empty applicator tube in the trash.

Do not allow your cat to ingest this product. For cats weighing over 20lbs, using more than 1 single dose is not advised. As with any product, consult your veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals or animals known to be sensitive to pesticides. Monitor your cat after application. Side effects may include signs of application site reactions such as application site hair loss, hair change (greasy, clumping or matting) or redness, inflammation and itching. Other side effects such as inactivity, vomiting and inappetance have also been reported. If these or any other side effects occur, consult your veterinarian, your cat’s healthcare expert.

Q: Does seeing fleas on my cat mean the flea treatment is not working?

Cheristin for cats kills fleas when used monthly and according to the label directions. Remember that all animals in the household should be treated with an approved flea product to help control the flea population. Because each female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day there is potential for a large buildup of eggs, larvae and pupae, resulting in a constant supply of new adults emerging in the cat’s environment2. (Learn more about the flea life cycle.)Regardless of the product used to kill fleas, the cat can continue to be exposed to fleas living in the environment. When these fleas jump onto the cat, they will be killed quickly by Cheristin for cats.If you see fleas on your cat within a month after your pet receives flea treatment with Cheristin for cats, it is most likely these are new fleas that have very recently emerged from pupae and jumped onto the cat. These new fleas will be killed quickly before they can produce eggs that contaminate the environment.Consistent monthly application of Cheristin for cats should be maintained to provide continued protection for your cat against these fleas.

Q: How long does Cheristin for cats last?

Cheristin for cats has demonstrated efficacy for at least 30 days.

Q: Is Cheristin for cats available near me?

    I found myself with a huge flea problem. I baby sat for a friends dog. Needless to say the dog had been in our house for 3 days when we noticed she kept scratching. After looking closely at her she was infested with fleas. The poor thing was bathed immediately and thank goodness we had some capstar on hand because you can’t put spot on flea treatment until 24 hours after a bath. We use frontline for our 3 kitties and our little dog. I made sure I put flea medication on all our pets and we sprayed flea spray on the bed the puppy was laying on. Well that wasn’t good enough. Within a month we were infested. Apparently I should have treated all my furniture and washed all throw rugs. I thought I I found myself with a huge flea problem. I baby sat for a friends dog.

Within a month we were infested. Apparently I should have treated all my furniture and washed all throw rugs. I thought I did enough. We have all wood floors. One of my kitties back started getting sores because of the fleas. None of the other animals were being effected. I took her to the vet and they told me she is allergic to fleas. I spent over $2000 getting my house flea free. I continued using Frontline. Sammy my kitties back just got worse with bites. I tried everything. I saw some reviews about this flea medication and had read about similar situations as mine. It is a little pricey but if it could help her I would pay anything. We put on the first dose on all our kitties. I couldn’t believe how they didn’t get that huge oil slick on their backs for a week like they did with Frontline and Advantage. We barley noticed they were treated. Within 2 days Sammy’s back cleared up. I can tell she is happier and healthier. I will only buy Cheristin from now on. Best stuff on the market so far. I live in Florida where our flea season is 12 months long. I did keep my friends dog because she didn’t want to go home after being with us for 2 weeks.Bella loves it here. … more

  • Very effective flea control

    By on

    I've used the usual name brands of topical flea control for many years. Lately, none of them was working. I mentioned this to my vet and she said this is a current common problem for pet owners. Her theory is that these products have been on the market for many years, have lost their effectiveness and fleas have become resistant. She said that one of the vet pharma reps who visits her office admitted that his product is only about 25% as effective as in the past. My vet recommended Cheristin -- it's a relatively new product and is much more effective. I can attest that it is very effective. I have a multi-cat household. (They are all inside kitties so how they get fleas is a mystery.) I've used the usual name brands of topical flea control for many years. Lately, none of them was working.

I gave each kitty a second dose a month later and still no fleas. I'm so glad there is a new, effective flea product on the market. I can highly recommend this product. … more

  • It Seems to Work!

    By on

    My cats didn't wig out as bad as usual when I put this on them and it seemed to kill the fleas by the next day. I hope it lasts good, so far so good. The Advantage Plus had gotten where it didn't really work at all, but this stuff seemed to do the trick. I will be ordering it again. As for Chewy.com......they are great! Always quick with shipping and prices are all reasonable. I think I'm going to start getting a lot more of my babies' needs from Chewy.

  • So far, so good

    By on

    It's been a week and the fleas are non existent. My 4 fur babies are inside cats and sometimes we dog sit so fleas are brought in. Where we live in South Carolina, the flea season has been quite different in that the fleas are larger and are not affected by our normal prescription topical, and every 3 weeks, we were spraying the house and applying topicals. The cats were miserable! After reading the reviews, which I do on everything nowadays, I wanted to try Cheristin. There is no smell or oily spot and it is simple to use. My cats are not scratching, seem happier and are back to sleeping all day as normal. If there are any negative changes in the days to come, I will update.

  • The best flea product I have ever purchased

    By on

    I have two cats at home, a three year old and a 10 year old and have bought all kinds of things to help control the fleas in the house. Nothing has been as effect as this. This product is absolutely amazing! Within hours of putting it on there were dead fleas! Almost all of the fleas are gone. The fleas have been reduced by at least 95%!! I am so glad that I purchased this and this will be my only go to for flea medicine.

  • Best Flea Treatment

    By on

    My 16 year old cat, Sue, has been inundated with fleas! I've tried every topical product on the market, plus having my apartment professionally treated. She still had fleas! Then I came across Cheristin Flea Treatment..and finally, SUCCESS!! It's a miracle. That night my Sue slept the night through, and I could even hear her snoring. Thank you so much for giving her lasting relief.

  • Still Searching for Solution

    By on

    My vet’s office recommended Cheristin for my 2 indoor cats as they feel that fleas are becoming resistant to Frontline and Advantage. I’ve tried the product on both cats twice, and fleas reappear after about two weeks, so it does not appear to be effective for my two feline friends. But it may be effective for others — you just never know,

  • GREAT stuff

    By on

    After YEARS (yes years) of trying everything that really worked, I finally found Cheristin. Apparently fleas are becoming immune to the typical flea treatments. This one really works as it is supposed to. You won't be sorry!!
