Vet Review Fleas are easily the most common external parasite that plague cats throughout the country. Fleas have been shown to not only cause weakness and anemia in affected cats, but also transmit dangerous infectious diseases, including bartonellosis, an also increasing threat to humans. Cheristin is made with the same main ingredient as Comfortis for cats, and acts uniquely on the nervous system of the flea. Unlike flea prevention tablets, Cheristin starts killing fleas within 30 minutes and almost 100 percent of fleas within 12 hours. With the easy to use applicator, this product has been shown to be quite effective for one month. The most common, yet rare side effect I have seen in cats is an allergic reaction or hair loss at the site of application, and even less commonly vomiting and lethargy. It is an excellent and fast acting, effective product with an overall rating of a 4.5 with an ease of administration of a 5. This similar product in cats offers many of the same benefits of the dog product in killing mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and lice within an hour. Like Flea4X Plus product, most of the parasites do not have the bite the pet to be effective and are killed on contact. This helps minimize risk of allergic contact reactions of the pet on exposure to these parasites. As with Flea4x Plus, I give this product an overall review of 4 with an efficacy and ease of use of a 4.5
