Think your indoor cat isn't at risk for fleas? Think again.

  • Adult fleas can come into your home on people's clothing or other pets and you may not even know it. 

    So you might not realize that fleas may already be a problem on your cat. For one thing, due to cats' grooming behavior, it can be difficult to find adult fleas. By the time you recognize what is happening, your cat may have been bitten hundreds of times, and you more than likely will have a flea infestation problem.

    That's why Advantage® II flea control for cats works all month long to break the flea life cycle so you can help protect your cat and prevent an infestation.
