How does it work?
It can seem rather unlikely that placing a few drops of liquid on the neck of a cat can kill fleas which might be found on a completely different part of the body. Even more remarkable is that the same application can kill tiny mites living deep in the ear canals, and even the worms living in the middle of the gut! Stronghold works because it is absorbed through the skin into the blood stream. It is transported around the body by the blood, Killing parasites everywhere.
Stronghold Cat 45mg -These are not a great concern with Stronghold. After using Stronghold it is sensible to wash your hands, not to stroke the neck of the cat, and prevent close contact between then animal and children for a few hours. Having said that, the active ingredient of Stronghold, called selamectin, is not at all toxic to people at the sort of doses likely to be encountered.
Stronghold Cat 45mg - Side effects in cats are not a significant concern. Sometimes the skin where the Stronghold is applied might show some hair loss and irritation. This usually passes in a few days, with or without treatment. Even when used with other flea or worm treatments there does not seem to be a problem, though it is sensible to check with your vet before combining any treatments.
