What flea medication is working for you right now? [R]9 months, 3 weeks agosolidsimpson posted submission on cats.

I'm in the north east of the USA and hoping some of you may know what's working this year. I've tried front line plus,hartz flea collars and flea powder. Nothing seems to be working on my five kitties. I have 3 five month old girls and two two year old boys, if that matters.

Also, when our cat had a ton of fleas, they told us to treat the house too. So we sprayed the entire house floor with Siphotrol (Vet Kem Siphotrol Plus II Premise Pest Control Spray, 16-Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KVSTC0/ref=cmswrcpapi_ruUQBbJVGYE0V) and between that, vacuuming a lot and the revolution they went away.

My dogs picked up fleas somewhere and I’ve been battling them for almost 2 months. Every time I think they’re done and gone, there’s more. I feel like I’ve tried dozens of things and I’m losing the war.

Fleas in our apartment [R]1 year, 8 months agoNor_Wester posted submission on Pets.
Nov. 7, 2017
A little over a month ago, our landlord, who lives on the third floor of of our triplex (old, big house), let us know that he thought he might have seen a flea in his apartment. We have two indoor cats, so we bought a flea comb, and lo and behold, our cats have fleas.
The next day, we took the cats to the vet, got them on Revolution and a few days of Capstar. A few days later, our landlord bug bombed the entire house while our cats went to stay at their grandma's house. We spent hours after the bug bomb cleaning, vacuuming, mopping, etc. in order to make sure our kitties wouldn't get poisoned when they came back home.
We also washed all of our bedding, threw out our rugs and the cat tower, took couch cushions off to be washed, etc.
I continued combing the kitties every day for about a month, usually finding a few dead and a few live fleas. We gave them a few more doses of Capstar for good measure. Vacuumed every day, washed laundry and bedding once or twice a week.
Last week, I was finding more fleas than usual on the cats, even though it hadn't quite been 30 days since their first dose of Revolution. We gave them their new dose probably 29 days after (this past Friday). Still finding live and dead fleas when I comb them. I'm also not sure if the problem in the apartment is getting worse or not - husband and I are always thinking we see fleas or feel itchy, but that might just be in our heads.
Anyway, it just doesn't feel like we've made any progress and the stress is killing us! We shaved the backs of our cats' necks to make extra sure we applied the Revolution effectively this time, just in case we didn't last time.
We have hardwood floors, no carpets, FWIW.
ETA: Also, when emptying the vacuum we dump it down the garbage disposal and run it.

I had a flea infestation in my house this summer, the 1st time in over 20 yrs. Treated the dog and cat, flea bombed and it didn't help. asked at the vets office and they told me that Siphotrol would absolutely work. They were right. Sprayed the carpets, linoleum and furniture and within 24 hrs not a flea to be found. I sprayed again a couple weeks later in case any eggs were missed and we haven't had a problem since. If you can isolate rooms you don't even have to leave the house, just wait until it dries. We used the aerosol can but there's a pump sprayer also.

So a few days ago I noticed that my cat was scratching himself quite a bit and checked under his chin and sure enough found a couple of fleas on his neck. We did a little research online and decided to buy frontline plus at petco and we followed the directions correctly and even watched several YouTube videos on how to apply it. We have also been washing and vacuuming our carpets religiously but we are still finding a couple of small fleas on him. Based on the research I've done, many people suggest using diatomaceous earth powder to kill off the larvae. Does anybody have any similar experiences or advice to help me rid my apartment of these fleas?
Sept. 19, 2017
We had an extremely bad year for fleas here this year. 1st time in the 22 yrs I've lived in this house that I've had an infestation. I tried bug bombing twice and it didn't faze them and my dog being allergic to them was scratching her self bloody. My vet recommended Siphotrol and it works great! A light spray and leave for a half hour and they're gone. If you can close off rooms and do them 1 at a time you don;t even have to leave. Might want to reapply in 2 weeks. I got it from the vets office but some pet stores carry it besides Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Siphotrol-Premise-Control-Spray-16-Ounce/dp/B000KVSTC0
We have 4 cats and a dog. Every year, around summer (right now), we get a flea infestation, and every cheap over the counter solution my mother gets doesn't work, including flea bombing.

Get Advantage for the cats and dog. Get a flea comb and a bowl of soapy water, dip the comb in the water and comb the animals carefully to remove the fleas and eggs.
For the house, I highly recommend this stuff. It's a little pricey, but one can goes a long way (about 2,000 sq ft). Raid flea killer room spray also works very well, but the cans don't go nearly as far. The Raid you can buy in stores, though, whereas the Siphotrol you'd need to buy online or maybe from a vet's office.

I have two indoor-only cats and moved last year into a house in the Carrolton/Riverbend area (my childhood neighborhood). I always knew New Orleans fleas were next-level, but the ones in my neighborhood are the worst. They laugh at every method of prevention. I have sunk hundreds of dollars a year into keeping my cats flea-free. Even a combo of Capstar and Frontline doesn't really work to keep the fleas off them. I have been flea-combing them every day and it seems like the fleas are some kind of nightmare that never ends. I vacuum every single day in an effort to stem the flow of fleas into my home. Is my only hope to get a prescription for Comfortis? That shit is expensive, plus I have to pay for a vet visit that they don't need (they are up to date on their shots etc). What do you do? Don't tell me to use diatomaceous earth because it doesn't work! I have even used flea bombs in the house and basement! The hellish little shits are coming up through the floorboards! My cats NEVER go outside. My neighbors insist on feeding feral cats. The yard and streets are JUMPING with fleas and I just want to die. It's me or the fleas.

We had the same problem to the T. Indoor cat, fleas coming through the floorboards in an old raised house next to a lady with a soft spot for strays. We spent a lot trying to rid them for a while too. I don't want to jinx myself but I think they're gone?? I took our cat to the vet (Ark Animal Hospital on Jeff Hwy and got her on Comfortis (it was like $25 when I was expecting like $100). I had her boarded there for three days and came home and bombed out house and cleaned all the things. I noticed a difference the first week, then a week or two later not so much and just decided to give up and start to look into moving but I'm thinking those were hopefully the last to hatch or something and now they all dead? She's had two months of the Comfortis so far and it's about $25 each pill. There aren't any more fleas jumping around and no more little red bites on my ankles and when we comb our cat she's flea/egg and dander free. I better not have cursed myself now that I talked about it though. Also, I too wasted money on diatomaceous earth. It may work but not if your house is surrounded by bushes and you can't fully spread that shit. I tried :/ However this shit ($$$) works--https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KVSTC0/ref=ohauidetailpageo04s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Sorry that this took a bit for me to get back to you. Kitten is full of energy but looks like he has an ear infection now :(
It's going to cost $20 dollars to have the Vet see him + ??? for the antibiotics for his ear + 21 dollars for this flea spray + 65 dollars for his eventual neuter-ing. I have no idea what the cost of the shots are yet, because he won't get them till week 9 and they come in a series.
He is going to see Dr. Saunders on Thursday at 9:15 am @ For Pet's Sake in Yankton, SD and her number is 605-665-7411.

I'm currently waging war against them in my apartment. I've been at it incessantly with traps and cedar oil spray for the past week, and I don't think I'm making any headway.
I think they're prevalent due to the humidity in Vancouver apartments. Do you have them? Any eradication tips?
Nov. 27, 2015
Advice from someone who dealt with a shit ton of them:
I tried diatomaceous earth, didn't do anything. I literally surrounded one in a circle of diatomaceous earth and it just ran through like it was nothing. I also tried cinnamon sticks, cedar and a few other natural deterrents.
What finally got rid of them was Vet Kem Siphotrol Plus II Premise Pest Control Spray. I got mine from Amazon but I have seen it behind the reception at Atlas Animal Hospital on Fraser. The first time I used it, there were dead silverfish bodies everywhere. Each time I closed and opened the light, some dead silverfish bodies appeared. It lasts for weeks after the first spray too. A reddit user actually recommended it in an old thread about silverfish.

The answer for a place that infested is the stuff vets themselves use: Siphotrol Plus II Premise Spray. Kills every single flea and prevents any new infestation for at least 3 months. I tried everything else on the market before this, and the difference is stunning.

We have two housecats in New York City. They never leave the house. But we do track in things on our shoes no doubt. We've been getting them Revolution monthly.
Trying not to be a scrooge, but $380/year for monthly meds for both cats is hard to budget. I'd like to more thoughtfully weigh the risks/rewards before I drop another $380 on a year's worth.
Given that they are housecats and are (what I assume to be) low-risk for most parasites that Revolution prevents against, I'm wondering if it is feasible to give them a dose every 2 months instead of every month? Would it help if I bought the 15-20lb version instead of the 5-15lb version? (They weigh 13 and 14 pounds.)
Is there an alternative medicine you would suggest? Thank you.

I still think you're overreacting, but if you really want to get it over with once and for all, what you need is Vet Kem Siphotrol Plus II Premise Pest Control Spra. This stuff works, and the effect lasts for months. You'd need to get the cats out of the house for several hours, and follow the directions to the letter, but this really is the best product on the market -- check the reviews.
As I said, we had zero problem with fleas on our cats in NYC apartments, but since moving we had one horrible infestation in a single family house. After months of misery, when no topspot, spray, powder or bomb made any dent in the problem, our vet convinced us to set aside our fear of pesticides and use this spray. It worked instantly and completely.

Hey, I will help you if I can. In the meantime, please post in /r/RandomActsOfPetFood. They are amazing there and will probably help you. Feel free to include pictures of your pets and your wish lists. Seriously. Also, if you have carpeting or cat trees, this spray works amazing. Consider adding it to your wishlist as well. It's well worth it. Just treating the pets is not enough. You need to eliminate any eggs, larvae and fleas that are living in the carpet, bedding, etc.

Revolution is the best flea product I have ever used on my cat. There isn't a whole lot of medicine in the tube and it dries fairly quickly. Good luck! I know how frustrating that can be.

I wonder if you can help.
Our 2 indoor cats have been suffering with fleas lately and it just seems to be never ending. Both have bald spots from ripping their hair out and subsequently been sick from the amount of hair they are eating. Even their behaviour has change; for example they don't come through and sleep with us at night.
Spoke to the vet who's advised the frontline treatment - this was applied to both cats on the 17th of July; spoke to the vet again who recommended carpet spray as we can't reapply the treatment for another 3 weeks.
Spray was applied to most problem areas, where they sleep, bedding etc but they're still suffering and scratching pretty badly. I've brushed them a few times in an attempt to look for them, though I have only ever been able to find dead bodies. I can tell their still active as everywhere they sleep I can see little black specks etc.
Has anyone experienced this and managed to remedy in the short term? I just don't want them to suffer anymore.
Aug. 7, 2014
Oh, yes. Been there, tried everything, finally licked it. Here's how:
Unless the spray you used was this one, you need to try again. That's the nuclear bomb of flea treatments, and it totally works to rid the whole house of fleas and keep it clear for weeks. Just be sure to follow the directions to the letter, keeping yourself and the cats out of the house for part of a day after spraying.
At the same time -- if your vet okays it -- you can give the cats Capstar, which kills all the fleas on the cats at that moment.

Hello, I have a one year old and an indoor/outdoor cat. Now that summer is here the cat seems to have brought some fleas in the house. I got some revolution to treat the cat and it seems to have eliminated his problem, but the fleas are still lingering a bit in the house. I've resisted treating the inside because I don't want to spray a bunch of chemicals on the floor where my baby is crawling. Are there any baby friendly alternatives to treating with harsh pesticides? Any tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

We vacuumed top to bottom for a month straight, and while there weren't many fleas, the remnants were hard to destroy. We sprayed Siphotrol and within days the fleas were dead -- eggs and all.
No more fleas. This is one of the few products I think I can swear by.

>the fleas down here are out. of. control.
One thing you can do is treat the apartment with Siphotrol Plus II Premise Spray, which is the nuclear bomb of flea treatments. You have to take both cats out of the apartment for a few hours and follow the directions exactly, but the effect is comprehensive and long-lasting. If your cats don't go outside, you'll never see another flea this year. (If they do go outside, whatever fleas they do bring in will die quickly and not reproduce.)
