Can I use dog flea and ticks products on cats?
No! Ingredients in many flea products can be harmful or fatal to your cat, like permethrin. Products containing this, as well as other ingredients at higher concentrations and labeled "for dogs only" should NEVER be used on cats. Cats have a very sensitive metabolism, so using these products on cats or even allowing your cat close contact with a dog that has been recently treated should be avoided. Although their margin of safety is very high for dogs, this is not true for cats. Many flea & tick product options are available for cats. [ Back to Top ]
