Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat and flea allergy. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

What collar are you using? Not all flea collars are effective or safe. If you are using Frontline, you may not need collars.

Omega 3s are anti inflammatory and may help with the allergic reaction; give 250 mg daily. You can give Benedryl, 10 mg for an average sized cat, twice daily.

If you are still seeing fleas, you can use Capstar tablets. It is safe, kills all the fleas on the cat, but only last 24 hours.

Let me know what other questions I can answer.
