• Our cat got fleas so we gave him a spot treatment (Frontline Plus for Cats) a week ago, but he still has fleas. Did it not work? Do we need to try it again (says give it to him every 30 days)? Or should we take him to the vets office?

    Hi Corey,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The flea prevention that will be best for your cat will depend on your cat’s overall health, where you live, and the environment that you cat is exposed to. Your vet knows your cat and the local are s they can give you’re the best advice on this. I would not apply any other flea medication unless directed to do so by your vet.
