Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works for us!! I applied Catego to 3 of my 6 cats along with Revolution on the other 3. We had a flea infestation, because every brand available only took care of the fleas for a week or 2. Since I knew I had an infestation, I put Food Grade DE all over the house and vacuumed after a day or two (use a Shop Vac)and vacuumed every day or every other day. I found out after spending hundreds of dollars that if you don't treat the house also, the flea meds only work for a week or two. The eggs and the pupae keep on hatching. I'm very pleased with Catego and happy not to have to spend a lot more than what I did for it and happy that it worked just as well or better than more expensive treatments. Just remember to treat your house also. I would definitely recommend this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable Fast Kill of all Fleas on Kittens Fleas in my local area have been exposed to Frontline Plus and Advantage for over 20 years. It's now a resistant population to those insecticidal flea controls. Catego has a novel combination of 3 insecticides at low enough concentration it's gentle on kittens, in a low volume 0.5mL to apply, yet kills ALL fleas in 6 hours. Our shelter vet will dose it by weight for the smaller kittens, especially while they're also coping with a URI, and aren't healthy. Catego is much more effective than the Frontline spray the shelter applies to each intake animal. Some of the cat flea control options caused neurological tremors in our small or sick cats. The risk of applying flea treatment was less than the detriment of fleas on their health despite coping with other health problems beyond flea infestation. Catego does not cause any neurological sign or side effect in these less than ideal health kittens and cats in our shelter foster program. At approx $11/dose, it's very affordable compared to less effective topical flea control options, so a win-win value of effective flea treatment for the money invested. Ensuring any flea control is not applied to broken or open skin is important to prevent local reaction or irritation. The blunt tip on this applicator prohibits plastic edge rubbing skin where it's applied, as other pipette applicators tend to rub and irritate the skin when applying the liquid medication directly to the skin. Way to go Catego!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I bought it and within hours my cat was not scratching anymore. Application lasted as indicated. Furthermore, with combined indoor and outdoor treatment I was able to skip months in application and it still continued to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My cat lost his hair around application area. My cat is extremely allergic. I didn't expect him to react to flea meds. But so far only Catego has resulted in such a dramatic reaction. Don't buy if your cat is the least bit sensitive!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hated it. We have 3 cats. Did application as directed. My flea issues did not change after 3 weeks. Comparing this to revolution, there isnt one. 30 minutes after applying Revolution the fleas go crazy and after 24 hours no fleas. Im not wasting my moneu on this again. Advantage II is in the same boat with catego, worthless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working by 2 weeks Got it for tick prevention and it totally stopped working two weeks in. Not only did i find and pull live, burrowing-in ticks on both cats, no less than 7 full, fat ticks fell off the one cat. Been a great and long night bathing both cats and cleaning the house, and tick spraying the 1.75 acre yard. Two weeks in!!! Frontline at least worked a few days more than that. Two weeks! I can't believe it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I have been using this for three months now. I have seven cats and was using frontline but it wasn't working. I thought I would try this and it has worked great. My little fur babies are feeling a whole lot better and I like that this not only kills the fleas that bite but also the eggs and larvae.

Questions

I put this on my cats and now one of them will not stop itching all over....why?

Asked by: Hey hey
Monitor your cat after application. Individual sensitivity, such as slight transitory redness, erythema, scratching pruritus, or other signs of discomfort at the site of application may occur after using ANY pesticide product for cats. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your cat with mild soap or shampoo and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs of individual sensitivity occur and persist, contact your veterinarian.

I am using another flea and heart worm med but need tick protection will this hurt my cat till the last treatment wears off?

Asked by: Lori
Thank you for your question. Catego is both a flea as well as tick preventative. It is best to use one product at a time to avoid any side effects, unless otherwise advised by a veterinarian.

How does this product kill ticks by contact?

Asked by: queensgirl57
Thank you for your question. The ingredients will stay on top of the skin for the entire 30 days. Once the tick comes into contact with the cat it will automatically start absorbing permethrin and start to die. The product will repel the tick away from the skin with the hot foot effect. Catego will kill ticks within 24-48 hour depending on species and life stage.

What is Catego for Cats?

Catego for Cats is a monthly, spot-on flea and tick preventative that also kills flea eggs, flea larvae and chewing lice. This fast-acting formula kills fleas within 6 hours of application and achieves 97% efficacy within 3 hours. Catego for Cats also kills all life stages of ticks through contact, before they have a chance to bite your cat. This is important to note, as many other flea and tick preventatives only kill ticks when your pet is bitten, which can still leave your pet vulnerable to tick-borne diseases. Catego for Cats protects cats against all developmental stages of Brown dog ticks (Rhipicephalus sanguineus), American dog ticks (Dermacentor variabilis), Lone Star ticks (Amblyomma americanum), and Deer ticks (Ixodes scapularis). Therefore, it also helps protect your cat against the diseases these ticks carry, including Lyme disease, Cytauxzoonosis, Haemobartonellosis, Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis, and Anaplasmosis. Catego for Cats is available in a 3 Pack, which contains 3 doses to protect your cat for a total of 3 months, as well as a 6 Pack, which contains 6 doses to protect your cat for a total of 6 months. Catego for Cats is easy to apply and is available without a prescription.
