Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Best Flea Treatment Cheristin is by far the absolute best OTC flea treatment on the market. All of our cats were infested with fleas when we applied Cheristin a week ago and now none of them have a single flea on them. This is DEFINITELY going to be our go to from here on out. But just for the record, it does smell like potting soil. And it will stink up any room the cat is in on the first day. But since it works so well, it's a small price to pay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST treatment ever! We have had the worst flea infestation ever this spring! We tried everything we could possibly think of but to no avail. I was in the pet store looking for help and a very sweet lady told me about Cheristin. I figured, why not give this a try! I had never heard of it but I bought the 3 pack, we have 3 indoor cats, and applied it immediately when I got home. I have never been so surprised and pleased with any product! The fleas started dropping off of them in about 45 minutes!!! This is day 4 and there are no fleas in sight!!! I cannot stress how WONDERFUL this product is!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rash and hair loss We did not have a good experience with this product. Our cat lost all his hair at the application site (it's still falling out and we used it a week ago) and has a rash there now. Whether or not it actually kills and/or prevents fleas, I don't know yet. I guess time will tell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Smell Spring is here, time to treat my cat for fleas as she does like to venure outside. In the past, I've chosen Frontline as her treatment. Instead, I decided to try Cheristin. Bad move. The treatment had a horrible scent -- very medicinal, almost toxic smelling. I ending up washing it off my cat who became extremely inactive while it was on her. As soon as I washed it off, she was purring, alert and interested in her food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this to try out because it was affordable. I’m so happy I did. This product works so good the fleas were dropping dead off my 2 cats. I highly recommend Cheristan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Quickly We came across this product a couple years ago when we were at our wits end with a flea infestation. We had tried all products we could find in the pet stores. A vet finally gave this to us and it cured the infestation quickly. Fleas started dying within 12 hours and we didn't have any other issues. We have continued to use this product on our cats and never have fleas on them.

So it’s just kills fleas not the eggs and flea larva ?

Asked by: Jack15
Thank you for your question. Cheristin kills fleas only it does not kill flea eggs or larvae. Advantage II and our Flea 5x Plus for cats kills Fleas, flea eggs and larvae.

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.

  • 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.

What is this product used for:

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.
