I am sorry to hear about your cat having ticks. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Advantage II is a great product for fleas, but does not kill ticks. Frontline is better for ticks. it comes in a spray or a spot on. Frontline is not absorbed into the body, it just works on the skin so it would be safe to use.

The Seresto collar will also get ticks.

Buck Mountain parasite dust may help with ticks, and is an herbal product.

Let me know what else I can help with or answer.
