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.
Based on the reviews I tried it based on value and efficacy. I looked and looked for how big a cat this was for as it only states greater than 1.5 lbs and my fatties are 14-16. I couldn't find it anywhere on the site and It doesn't say it on the box either so I bought some. The tube was really tiny so I figured it wouldn't be enough but it should do something. Maybe it was enough to just make the fleas go to another part of the body. Regardless, two days after application, I found a flea around the same spot as where I applied the stuff. I am asking for a refund and crossing this one off the list. I'm just going to bite the bullet and get the expensive prescription stuff. At this point I have flea bites all over myself from hugging my infested friends. :(
Our cat had a skin reaction to the topical flea treatment, so we tried these. He ate the little tablet immediately, so they apparently taste good. Assuming they do the job, this is a great alternative to the topicals.
This is the best flea medication I’ve ever tried. I use the Capstar pills at the same time, too. The only downside is if my cats have a whole lot of fleas on them, then they are kind of miserable for the first few hours while all the fleas are freaking out and biting and migrating towards the cats ears, face, and limbs. But then the fleas die and my cats are noticeably relieved.
We have tried two prescription brands & pretty much most of the other brands. This doesn't last 30 days but none of the others have either. However it did last longer than I expected and what I liked best there was no noticeable scent to it and the cats tolerated it much better than the others and didn't have as much reaction to it as they did the others. I have ordered this twice now and if it continues to keep working like last month, then I will order again. Plus if they keep the price close to what it is now it is a better buy too. I am hoping I finally found a reliable product for my kitties.
I medicated 5 cats at a great cost to me. All 5 appeared dazed within hours of dosing. A small number of fleas (seen) died. Within 3 days the remaining infestation grew. The mites, on 3, remain active.
I am happy Rafi is protected from ticks. I need not worry about it now. Very thankful.
I have tried multiple different flea medications but none of them worked here in NC until now. I use Capaction first and then Effipro and the fleas stay gone for a whole month!
I had seresto collars on my cats and I somehow got my house infested with fleas, after an exterminator and this product I haven't had a problem since thank you so much effipro. This product works better than Frontline and seresto!
My vet recommended this years ago. It works good for fleas and ticks and reasonably priced. No reaction from all four cats. I will buy this item again and recommend it.
I have been using Effipro on my cat since he came into my life. Its effective and Vet recommended.
