I tried sentry last month but he got a burn wont use it again

ok, what you are using is pretty close to the same is fipronil which is frontline. This can be used safely every 2 weeks for cats for an indefinite period of time.

Like most topicals this is meant to be used prophylactically therefore if you already have a flea problem you are facing about 6 months to get rid of the problem.

Can I answer any other questions?

Can I help you further?

Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have.

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
