Important Information

Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.

Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

I was told that Peppermint Oil 0.20% is highly toxic to cats. Has that changed?
Answer by ChewyAug 17, 2017
This product has been developed by a veterinarian and is endorsed by veterinarians so this spray should pose no harm to a feline. At 100%, Peppermint Oil and Clove Oil may pose harm to your cat or a human. This formulation is at 0.20% Peppermint Oil and Clove Oil at 0.46% mixed with our other ingredients should not harm your cat even if licked. However, every pet reacts differently to any spray or topical product.

Can I spray this directly on my hands and simply pet the cat? I want to use this on ferals who tolerate petting but will run if they see the bottle.
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2018
This product is safe to be sprayed on your hands as long as there are no open cuts. Please wash your hands after use.

May the cat and I stay in the house while I use this product?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2018
Vet's Best uses a chemical-free mist spray that kills ticks, fleas, and flea eggs on contact and repels mosquitoes, with peppermint oil and eugenol from clove.

my cats like to groom and play rough. Is it safe if they lick themselves or each other?
Answer by ChewyMay 11, 2019
It is recommended that you let your pet's coat dry completely after application before allowing pets to groom themselves or each other.

Temporary only

This spray helps a little but I could not recommend it as its effects are so short-lived.

Didn't stop our fleas!

My two cats have been having a really tough time with fleas. I tried a behind the neck vet recommended application of a well-known flea fighter. After the third application in the third month I decided it wasn't working at all. So I bought this Vet's Best but after using it (two or three times only) I did not see an improvement. Now I will say neither of my cats tolerated the spray or the hissing noise very well so it was not easy to dose them. Perhaps some more compliant animal would have gotten better results. Hard to say but I think I gave it a good try and it did not work for our flea problem.

I started using this product because my cat has a sensitivity to conventional flea medications. After a couple months of use he developed neurological problems. I took him to the vet and apparently peppermint oil is toxic to cats. According to the vet using this product is a possible cause of his condition.

Love this!!!

Living here in the Mid-West, we always have a flea problem. I've use this Brand for a long time and love it. My Cat doesn't mind it. I will do anything to help her stay safe from fleas! Thank you very much for having this product!!

My cats let me spray!

I can't believe it, but my cats actually tolerated this product! They don't love it; but because the spray is so fine and quiet, they don't realize I've even sprayed. Not at first. They will eventually fight me, but by that time, they've had a good amount of product on their fur! Sneaky but mostly effective. I am noticing less scratching. It smells so good!

Smelled Good

Smelled good. Did nothing for the fleas. Maybe good as a prophylactic but not if pet already has fleas. Ask your vet if they recommend it before you buy.

Easy to use, smells good!

I misted this on all my furniture as well as the cat beds after everything was washed, keeping it about 12in away like hairspray. This definitely helped in addition to my cat's topical pet meds from the vet. The aroma is a bit strong with peppermint so if you're not a fan don't get this product. My cat didn't seem to mind it and didn't avoid his usual spots after I sprayed. If you do spray it on flea dirt, be aware it may cause them to bleed into your fabrics so be sure to wipe/vacuum the flea dirt before spraying. This was a small fleas case, I think if it was more dire you will need something more robust.

GREAT the best and environmentally safe.

Second or third year I am using the product. I love it and more important than that my cats tolerate it. Which is good.

Wonderful spray, great smell!

Found out this is the very same as the big bottle, if you want a quick fix this will do for temporary, however, if you have a real problem with fleas use something stronger.
