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.

Cheristin For Cats is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat is allergic to fleas, my Vet recommended Cheristin and it's the only thing that works for her. Worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it's working Well I live in FL and my vet suggested this because apparently fleas and those nasties have NOT been responsive to Frontline and Advantage and Advantage 2 for cats I try all of them and they were unhappy and hurting one of my babies didn't know what to do and he sat in the kitchen and just cried. My vet suggested this all my cats are indoor but the one who was crying snuck out one day and yep fleas and there were 3 more cats that caught them too. I know it's working but I think two are allergic to flea bites because under their chins its scabby but it's getting better just one has the scabs now. Highly recommend cost to me is equal than the others don't work, I'm only giving a 4 right now because we're in the middle of month 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome results!! Just 1 treatment and my cat is flea free!! Which is fantastic because she is allergic to them and now her skin is healed anx she is no longer scratching because of those nasty little critters.

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.

How long after removing the Seresto collar from my 10 yr old cat, because Seresto caused chemical burns on her neck (note: my other cat has had no adverse reactions to Seresto), should I wait to use Cheristin on her and my other cat?

Asked by: Plantwhisperer
When switching flea preventions it is recommended to wait at least 30 days before using a different one.

I've read about "other" products like Cheristin and they say you CAN use their product on dogs or cats. Why can't Cheristin be used on both?

Asked by: JoAnn36312
Hello JoAnn, There are plenty of other products for fleas that can be used on dogs that may act similar to Cheristin. Cheristin and its ingredients however have only been tested with cats and approved for use on cats only. Hope this helps. Thanks, PetMeds Intern

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

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.

Unfortunately, Cheristin for Cats is only available in a 6-pack.

Does this take care of eggs and larvae, or just fully developed fleas?

Asked by: Sarah
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. However, it does not kill flea eggs and larvae.

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.
