EasySpot Flea Control for Cats Review
Are you trying to find an affordable flea treatment that actually works?
If so, you’re not alone! Sometimes it seems nearly impossible to keep your cat flea-free, especially once it starts to warm up.
Don’t worry though; we hear at Fix Fleas are working hard to find products that will work for you and your pet!
Today we’re going to take a closer looks at EasySpot for cats. We’ll see what’s in it and check out what other users are saying so that you can make an informed decision regarding your flea control product.
EasySpot is a PetMeds product that works to kill and repel the following:
They claim that it’s waterproof, long-lasting and formulated specially for cats and kittens. Let’s take a look and see if it can really kill fleas and other parasites or if it’s just another waste of money.
How it Works
Fipronil acts as a neurotoxin and blocks pathways to the insect’s brain. This causes hyperexcitability that leads to death. This is the reason that for a few hours, or even days, it may seem like your pet has even more fleas but what’s really happening is that the ones that were living quietly in his fur are reacting to the fipronil and coming to the top. That’s a good thing.
What Are Users Saying?
Reviews are pretty mixed on this product. People either seem to love it or hate it but even those who don’t think that it worked don’t report any adverse side effects. If we were to hazard a guess based on our experience with fipronil-based products, it probably works well for cats who have a few fleas, or for those who just want to keep from getting them.
If your cat and home are infested, this product won’t do it for you alone. You need to enact a flea control plan that includes treating your home and yard as well as your pet, then go with a spot on or pill to keep from getting them again.
The cost is right at about $8 per dose.
Separate the hair between your cat’s shoulder blades and apply the entire tube. Hold your cat for a few minutes so that the product can absorb. It’s safe to use EasySpot on cats and kittens 8 weeks old and older and on pregnant and nursing cats.
Apply monthly and wait for 24 hours before bathing your cat.
Product Warnings and Side Effects
Temporary irritation may develop at the application site. If it gets too bad, just bathe your cat in warm, soapy water. If it gets worse, consult your vet. If your cat is on medication, talk to your vet before using a pesticide because it could have negative interaction.
EasySpot is a good option if your cat is inside and only has a few fleas. If you’re just trying to remain parasite-free, this will probably be a good product for you. If you’re fighting a major infestation, it probably won’t work so well until you get control of your problem.
