What is EasySpot for Cats?
EasySpot for Cats is a topical flea, tick and lice treatment developed specifically for cats. The waterproof solution kills adult fleas before they lay eggs, ticks, and chewing lice, and prevents infestations for one full month. The easy to use applicator is applied to a single spot and provides pest protection for cats of all sizes. Gentle enough for use on kittens eight weeks of age or older.
Cats (8 weeks of age or older)
- Kills fleas, ticks and chewing lice for up to 30 days
- One spot, waterproof topical solution
- Easy to use application effective on cats of all sizes
- Approved for cats and kittens 8 weeks of age and older
How it Works:
EasySpot for Cats contains fipronil, a parasiticide that targets the nervous system of pests. The topical treatment is applied to the skin and spreads into the hair follicles, killing adult fleas before they lay eggs, ticks (brown dog ticks, deer ticks, American dog ticks and lone star ticks) that may transmit Lyme disease and chewing lice.
Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Skin burn - hair loss
Bought this product since it had some good reviews. Very disappointed in it. Used it on two adults cats, who spend lots of time outdoors. I will NOT buy this product again. Our black and white cat jerked away when I applied it, a reaction to the pain or burn it caused. The next day we noticed all the hair had fallen out of the apublication site. Poor boy, I feel so bad for using it. Our other cat had minimal hair loss.

This is a good product! My cats are happier and they are now flea free. They had no side effects and since it is less expensive than the one I used to use I am happy.

Awesome, afordable product!
If it was not for this product, I would have lost both my cats to deadly "bobcat fever". With direction from my vet, I am able to use this product safely every 21 days, from late Spring to early fall. Previously 3 of my cats died from this awful disease carried by ticks, because I was not able to use a treatment sooner than 4-6 wks.

Vet recommended and we did use it on 5 kittens and three adult cats. Fleas did not go and one adult cat got severe skin burn on the spot it was used.His hair started falling from there and poor boy was in pain.Never going to use it again.

I am responding to a review by Graham &Ericka headed “Unfortunately, not a great pick."
I too live in NC and this is a very tick-intensive area. I worked in veterinary research for the ministry of agriculture and I had cats all my life (65+years) I have never seen such an aggressive tick infestation as in NC. Not just for my cats, but with me as well! This year it is even worse than last year.
I built a wire dog-run on my deck to allow the cats some feel of nature while trying to avoid grass & leaves contact. It worked with two cats but the third one being a born feral cat found a way to escape by climbing the wire! When he returned he contaminated the others.
All I can do is to use shampoo in between applications. This active ingredient worked well in VA, it is almost pointless in NC… But there is hope for us.
I being a scientist I researched high & low for a complement to EasySpot and I may have found it. It is sold for mosquito infestation (which we have in NC worse than in the Everglades) I studied the active ingredient and it is a naturally occurring bio product harmless to animals, even to frogs. I will use it in my backyard and see what happens. The idea is to minimize the degree of infestation to allow EasySpot to do its work under normal conditions.
These people have six cats; there may be a cross contamination situation here too.
