What is Cheristin for Cats?

Cheristin for Cats is a topical flea control treatment developed just for cats. Cheristin is fast-acting and starts killing fleas in as little as 30 minutes. Within 12 hours 98-100% of fleas are gone. Plus, it has an easy-to-use applicator and works for one full month. It is gentle on cats and can be used on kittens over eight weeks of age. (6 Pack = 6 doses which lasts 6 months.)

For:

Cats (8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:
  • Starts killing fleas in 30 minutes
  • Kills 98-100% of fleas within 12 hours
  • Continues to kill fleas for a full month after application
  • Easy-to-use, non-greasy topical solution
  • Gentle on cats and kittens 8 weeks of age and older
How it Works:

Cheristin for Cats contains spinetoram, a mild insecticide that provides fast-acting flea protection just for cats. The topical treatment starts killing fleas in 30 minutes, and kills 98-100% of fleas within 12 hours. Plus, it continues to protect your cat and control flea infestation for a full month.

Cautions:

For use on cats and kittens only. For external use only. Do not use on kittens less than 8 weeks of age or weighing less than 1.8 lbs. Do not allow your cat to ingest this product. For cats weighing over 20lbs, using more than 1 single dose is not advised. As with any product, consult your veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals or animals known to be sensitive to pesticides.

Brand Name:

Cheristin for Cats

Manufacturer:

Elanco

Active Ingredient(s):

Spinetoram (11.2%)

What is this product used for:

Cheristin for Cats contains spinetoram, an insecticide that kills fleas on contact by targeting the fleas' nervous systems, resulting in paralysis and rapid death.

Availability:

Cheristin for Cats is a non-prescription product.

How this product should be used:

Remove one applicator tube from the blister package. Hold applicator tube in an upright position. Press cap down until it clicks (indicating the tube has been punctured). Hold upright and remove cap. Check to be sure there is an opening at the tip of tube. Part the hair on the neck at the base of the head until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube directly above the skin and squeeze the tube 2-4 times to expel the contents of the tube directly on the skin. Avoid getting the product in your pet's eyes or mouth. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for the cat to directly lick the product. (There may be a small residual remaining in the tube after a full dose is expelled.) Discard empty applicator tube in the trash.

What are the side effects:

Monitor your cat after application. Side effects may include signs of application site reactions such as application site hair loss, hair change (greasy, clumping or matting) of redness, inflammation and itching. Other side effects such as inactivity, vomiting and inappetence have also been reported. If these or any other side effects occur, consult your veterinarian, your cat's healthcare expert. For technical support, contact Elanco at 1-888-545-5973.

What special precautions are there:

For use on cats and kittens only. For external use only. Do not use on kittens less than eight (8) weeks of age. For cats weighing over 20lbs, using more than 1 single dose is not advised. As with any product, consult your veterinarian before using the product on debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals or animals known to be sensitive to pesticides.

If in eye:

Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, continue rinsing. Call a physician or poison control center or a doctor for treatment advice.

If swallowed:

Call a poison control center or a doctor immediately for treatment advice. Have the product label with you when you call poison control. Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to do so by a poison control center or doctor. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

How should I store this product:

Store in original package in a cool dry place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one that works! Tried every other flea medicine you can think of. None of them worked. Was referred cheristin by a friend and have never looked back. Kills all fleas within like a day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my Cat! We had tried several products for fleas. Our cat was just about bald & had sores all over her and had lost too much weight. Finally took her to a new Vet and he recommended Cheristin. Within a week her fur was growing back. After three weeks the sores were healing & her fur was growing nicely. She has gained back her healthy weight. I can't recommend this product more! It really did save my cat. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The fleas seemed to have become immune to most other products I have been using, both prescription and OTC. One treatment with Cheristin and the problem seems to be solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only thing that works We got this a few months after noticing that no other flea medication was really that effective on our two cats (a problem many people in our county are facing as resistance to things like advantage and frontline is very high here). After dosing with a few days of capstar and this product a few months later our little buddies are thankfully, flea free. One of our cats has skin conditions so I was worried at first reading reviews about it irritating some cats skin but she reacted well and has almost no skin irritations and places where she has licked herself raw. It does leave a kind of gluey residue on their neck for a few days but I'm fineness with that for a few days a month if it means my kitties (and home) are flea free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks for customer reviews I was using Advantage II, for the last couple of years. This year it would not work at all and this was after 3 treatments. So I read the reviews of other customers on the Cheristin for cats, and I'm so glad I chose this product. After giving my cats a bath and they were dry, I applied the Cheristin. Within 2 days I have only found a couple of fleas. Now, 4 days later NO FLEAS. I also treated my house with flea sprays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best option for flea prevention! I started using cheristin months ago at the recommendation of our vet. I order it here for the best price, but you couldn't ask for a better product. It would do wonders for your cat even in the worst of infestations.

Q&A

I have 3 indoor cats. Can I get a 6 dose and use for 2 months on my 3?

Asked by: Barrsmama
This product is only sold in a 6 dose pack...

My vet said that this product can only be purchased through him because it requires a relationship and knowledge of the patient based on the manufacturer.  Also, is this item viewed as potentially hazardous to where it cannot be sent via the USPS?

Asked by: Puff
Hi there, thank you for your question, no, any pharmacy can sell this topical flea preventative. Just a heads up, this is an OTC (over the counter) topical flea preventative. (This does not require a prescription from a vet.) Also there are no issues mailing any flea preventatives by mail.

May I order one tube to make sure it works? I had to throw 5 doses of Comfortis away because my cat couldn't keep it down. Can't afford that.

How soon after you have applied Frontline Gold can you apply the Cheristin? Frontline has done nothing to stop the flea population.

Asked by: becky
Wait 30 days after applying Frontline Gold before you apply Cheristin.
