A Vectra product is available for cats. Be sure to use the cat-specific product and not a dog formulation.

According to the manufacturer (SummitPharm), no clinically significant side effects were noted. However, for most of the topical flea preparations, excessive salivation if ingested, and hair loss or irritation at the application site are the most commonly seen side effects.
