Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment while I review your concerns.
Unfortunately, fleas can be very troublesome and can take several months to resolve.
How long ago did you take your cat to the vet?
Have you applied Revolution to both cats?
Any other pets in the home?
Ok, it sounds like you are off to a good start.
Given the flea's life cycle, it can take 3 months to completely resolve a flea infestation in the home.
Continue to apply Revolution monthly to both cats.
For the home, recent studies show that vacuuming/mopping the home every other day can the the most effect part of the treatment plan.
Cleaning your home is a very important step to eradicating a flea problem. Vacuuming, sweeping and mopping help get the eggs, larvae, and pupae out of your carpets, upholstery, tile, and wood floors.
Tip: Wash all of your and your pet's belongings in hot water to kill fleas and flea eggs.
I recommend using a home spray (Siphortol) is my preferred brand of spray.
1. Spray this into your vacuum to kill any fleas that are vacuumed up prevent any eggs from hatching within the vacuum.
2. Spray this everywhere in the home, esp under beds, couches and furniture. (Foggers can help, but the product will settle on top of furniture and not treat the area below).
Continue to vacuum every other day.
You are very welcome. I wish you all the best!
