    Pros: Nothing
    Cons: May poison or kill your cat- bad allergic reaction at least.

    Summary: Gave one-spot to my cats. Usually use advantage. Within hours my oldest cat was running around the house like a mad cat- hissing and panting, heart racing and visibly upset. She would growl when I went near her. I went on line and read about how this ... read more

    Pros: Cheaper than most other brands.

    Cons: My cats still don't like it, some cats are allergic

    Pros: none
    Cons: many cats may be allergic to this product

    Summary: I usually use another brand (Advantage) but saw this in the store and decided to try it because it was 1/3 the price. I got my money's worth and then some! 5 minutes after I applied this to my cat, she had an allergic reaction and went into ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, cheap
    Cons: The "wet spot"

    Pros: none, in my opinion.
    Cons: after applying it my cat became extremely ill, but no way to prove they are connected.

    Summary: I have six cats living with me right now, and recently they've gotten fleas, much to my dismay. I've fought fleas before and it's an uphill battle, not to mention expensive. So, when I went to my local grocery store and found Hartz One Spot for Cats for ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: according to vet, bad for cats

    Summary: Perhaps our flea infestation was on a major scale, but Hartz did not rid us of the problem. My two kittens, 6 mos old, got fleas from an outdoor cat that was let in one rainy, cold night. A week later, I noticed that they were uncontrollably ... read more

  • Control of what?

    Oct 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to obtain, probably DOES kill eggs/larvae though you'd never know it, price, application (spot control)
    Cons: No way of telling if the substance works unless the adult component works,VERY toxic (according to vet), NOT an all in one solution (but neither is Advantage)

    Summary: ....eggs? Larvae?....big deal! The eggs and Larvae are NOT what were biting me and my 6 cats. To be fair to the product it's not easily seen whether or not the desired effect is attained. In the instance of eggs and larvae one SHOULD attempt to remove ... read more
