Bad Reaction w/ Advantage Flea Control Product

Aug 27, 2006
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:The fleas are likely going to die

Cons:Both our cats could have been very sick for a few days.

On the advice of the vet, we treated our 3 month old kittens with "Advantage" as a flea precaution. Both are house cats and only get outside on their harness with supervision.
Within a few days both came down with the following bad reactions:
-loss of appetite
-lethargy
-muscle weakness/pain
Both cats had to be taken to the vet where fluids had to be administered (due to dehydration). Tests on the blood, x-rays and visits in an attempt to find the cause cost us $500 not to mention the worry of a sick pet.
Both cats coming down with the same symptoms seemed very strange until we read the possible side effects of Advantage. Our cats were fine after a couple of days but our family will never use this product again.
