Bio Spot Flea & Tick Collar For Cats
It's cheap for a reason
Maybe it's good at prevention? If your cat already has fleas, it won't get rid of them.
This product does not work.Bought 3 collars and 3 kittens still are loaded with fleas.Can i get a refund?
Sorry, just doesn't work
Just doesn't work. Fleas crawling under collar,around cat's neck and ears. Forget about the hind end and belly. Used 3-4 weeks
Use Biospot with 2 woods loving indoor / outdoor cats. It keeps the fleas and particulary ticks off both cats (one of whom is long haired.)
My cat acted strange
After putting it on I hardly saw my cat, She's still licking and scraching.
also my cats (both just turned 1 yr old) are purely indoor kitties and do not have fleas...is it ok to use these as a preventive?

Biospot has a bad reputation which I found out too late after I used it on my cat and she died. This may sound like an exaggeration. It's not. The vet who tried to save her confirmed that Biospot was responsible for her death. She died in convulsions.
I think that would be more then you need. I found that I don't have to use frontline or advantix anymore with the collars. Plus the collars are way cheaper!

If your pet is is infected with fleas then yes use them together but try the liquid first then a day or so later use the collar. I do not think mixing two liquids would be healthy for your pet. I also found using ivory soap with warm water and fleas brush will help get a good amount of fleas off the pet. Then put on the liquid to kill the larva and eggs.
