Can i use Frontline for my cats a week since the deadline?
you can tell the reason being is that we're really suffering near the fleas here. i've been cleaning every corner of my house almost everyday and washing every bit of clothes/bedsheets surrounded by every room weekly now...
theres a week to go but ... it really needs to be done! can it?
a week earlier the next bit of frontline.. will it harm my cats?
if not...anyone get any tips to nuke these blood sucking b(a)stards?
I'd use out of date stuff on myself but NOT my cats.
You might consider staying with a friend for the weekend and setting rotten a couple of insecticide bombs.
They are miserable to clean up afterward, but problem will be gone.
so they save getting new ones.
do this it works like a charm.
IF YOUR HOUSE / cat HAS FLEAS….
I have a NATURAL remedy for getting rid of fleas within your house.
I DO NOT LIKE SPRAYING INSECTICIDE AROUND THE HOUSE.
Go to the Store and buy some 20 Mule Team BORAX. (you find it in the soap isle)
Then sprinkle it all over. Carpets, couch, bedding, pillows, PET BED’s, saloon, even wood floors.
I walk around on the floor so it gets down into the fibers. Rub your hand over the sofa, etc.
(NOT ON YOUR PET!)
THEN VACUUME IT UP.
What Boax does is coats the eggs ... The eggs hatch deformed or unable to reproduce.
You will have to do this 2 or 3x about a week apart surrounded by order to get all the egg cycles.
Since I did this I no longer hold fleas in the house. Since you vacuume it up it is not a danger to pets or children.
FOR YOUR PET. Use the topical flea killer specifically on the market or wash with Dawn dish wash soap (make sure to rinse all soap out) and use a flea comb (this is also a head lice comb) particularly for kittens or puppies who are too young to have insecticide put on them.
Kill the fleas that you find on the comb with soap or alcohol
no dont do it, you need to treat your house aswell as the cat. go to the vet and draw from some stronghold, maybe your cat is imune to frontline
Actually, my vet said yes - 21 days later is OK whether there is a bad infestation going on.
Also you might switch it up and try Advantage this month - sometimes the little blood suckers get resistant to one type of medication and it help to switch to another. You can switch back and use your Frontline again later.
I use frontline too it is completely good and during the summer months i tend to put a new pippet on him around every 60 days as fleas are a real hasstle whether you have a break out.
Also, you can purchase a can of spray for your carpets that lasts a year too, it's around 10 pound a tin so rather ecpensive as you use it all in one go on adjectives your carpets in the house.
Just close all window and doors and keep ALL pets away from your house for about 3 hours or so as the fumes will hurt them (and us lol)
Im sorry i can't remember what it is call but a good vet would be able to tell you.
Hope this have helped.
