Frequently Asked Questions

For Cats

What are fleas?

The most common external parasite for cats is the flea. They feed on a cat’s blood. They lay eggs that can infest carpets, upholstery and bedding.

If I don’t see fleas, does that mean my cat doesn’t have fleas?

Not necessarily. Biting adult fleas comprise only about 5% of a flea infestation.

How do I know if my cat has fleas?

Signs of a flea infestation are subtler for cats than on dogs, so they can be harder to notice. It requires owners to be observant and check the coat. Cats may exhibit scratching or excessive grooming. Cats may also appear restless and not quite themselves. Redness, inflammation or signs of flea dirt may be present when the hair is parted and skin examined.

Do I really need to apply Provecta for Cats every month?

Yes. Fleas are present year-round, even in colder climates. They are also found on indoor-only cats. And once you see one flea, chances are there are many more you haven’t seen.

Can I use Provecta for Cats more than once per month if my cat has a really bad flea infestation?

Under normal conditions, this product is effective for a month. However, in the case of a severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than four weeks. On cats, do not retreat more often than once every seven days. After flea control is attained, return to a monthly treatment schedule.

Can I use a smaller dose of Provecta for Cats on my kitten?

No. Do not apply to cats or kittens under eight weeks of age or weighing less than five pounds. Provecta for Cats is available in two convenient sizes based on your cat’s weight, 5-9 pounds and over 9 pounds. Please contact your Veterinarian for more information.
