Our kitten had fleas, and neither flea collars or any of the over the counter spot on treatments were any use. We were all getting bitten too. Truly fed up, we then we took the cat to the vets and she gave him Advocate, and something to treat the house for fleas too.The cat and our house have been fleas-less ever since.
Its the only effective and safe flea product left on the market for cats.
