Customer Question
My cat has flea...

My cat has flea like droppings on his fur but we treated him for fleas.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is your cat's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** he is about 9 year old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jerry?

He has Feline Herpes, gets easily stressed

It is not surprising that you are finding flea feces at this time. Even the best flea shampoos will control fleas for only 48 hours. In order to break the flea cycle, Jerry and any other dogs, cats or fur-bearing animals in the house have to be consistently treated for 90 days. This means a flea bath every other day for 90 days! There are many other choices for products for fleas but regardless of which one you choose the protection against fleas must be provided for 90 full days to get rid of the fleas in the environment, ***** *****ves in. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating. Dr. Dan
