WHY HAS MY VETERINARIAN RECOMMENDED CHERISTIN® FOR CATS?
Your veterinarian has recommended Cheristin® for cats (spinetoram) to kill fleas on your cat, to treat an existing infestation and/or to prevent future flea infestations because he or she understands Cheristin to be effective and dependably long-lasting.
DOES SEEING FLEAS ON MY CAT MEAN THE FLEA TREATMENT ISN’T WORKING?
Cheristin kills fleas when used monthly, according to the label directions.
Because each female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day while existing larvae and pupae continue to develop, new adult fleas can potentially emerge in your cat’s environment constantly.1 (Learn more about the flea life cycle.)
Cats can continue to come into contact with fleas living in the environment, but fleas that jump onto a cat that’s been treated within the past 30 days with Cheristin will die. If you see fleas on your cat within a month of treating with Cheristin, they are most likely new fleas that have recently emerged from the pupae stage. These new fleas will die quickly, before they can produce eggs that contaminate your household.
To help control the flea population, all animals in your household should be treated with an approved flea-control product.
Maintain consistent monthly application of Cheristin to your cat to provide continual flea protection.
