I used to use advantage also, but I wouldn't put it on during the cooler months when fleas & ticks are not as much a problem. They can show up at any time of year, but usually don't.

We use Advantage for our cat. During the winter we usually don't use it. ALthough we probably should use it because it only takes one flea to cause a problem. All youhave to do is be around someone who has a pet with fleas and it can get on you and be carried home.
I took Rusty to PetSmart for the vet clinic once, after that we had fleas real bad, so I don't go back there. I go to the vet's office. I've heard from several people that this has happened to them oo.

Thanks to you ladies for your input on flea treatment. It looks as if I will be going back to Advantage for my two cats. I can't take it with me, so rather than watch my babies scratching all the time, I might as well spend the money to make them comfortable once more.

In the hot weather here they could end up with loads of fleas, and whatever else, and they don't need it.

So, thank you again. I appreciate your posts.

Advantage

Yesterday I picked up some Advantage once again. Used it on both cats, and now I feel much better for having done so. It is very hot here now--90 degrees, and, with both cats outdoors as often as they are, flea season is here more than not in this climate.

What I was not prepared for is a raise in price. It WAS $66.00. NOW it is $80.17, which will last for seven treatments. Oh well, I'm on Social Security!! LOL!

Whenever I get Advantage it costs me $39.00 for 3 treatments. If we want to put it onj the cat ourselves we have to purchase 3 treatments, if we only want 1 treatment, we have to take the cat to the vet.

I get the Advantage at the vet's, because I was told it's the only place it can be obtained. But, I checked a pet store in out area once, and was told they no longer carry it, because it was too expensive, and no one would buy it.

The vet has it in packages of six, and if you buy the six, a free one is given. I was told to put it on the back of the cat's head, down the neck a bit. It sounds as if your price is about the same as what I paid.

I had picked up some of the Hartz a long time ago, and used it on one cat once. She kept shaking her head as if she were trying to get rid of something, and I thought it might be burning her, so washed it off. Since then I have read where the Hartz people were asking stores to take it off their shelves, due to complaints.

Redcardinalbird~~

Thanks so much for that suggestion. I'll look into it. Before I sign off, I have to let you know I made a mistake in the price I paid the other day. I didn't realize it until I re-read what I wrote, a minute ago. I paid $70.00; not $80.00. I missed the correct key (which happens a lot with me!)

The price you mentioned sounds even better, and with no shipping charge yet! Thanks again.

Just wanted to share pictures of our newest family member...Chewy! She came home last night and so far so good. She is 7 weeks old now. She is eating, drinking and using the litter box. Loves to play.

Hugs Debbie

Debbie, She's so adorable! A little "spit~fire", huh?

Just a note here to let you know that Blondie is having some problems with getting onto FC. She wanted to post and can't get through, yet. They're working on the problem.
