What happens if my cat licks PetArmor?
Answer

If your cat licks PetArmor, it can potentially cause mild to moderate gastrointestinal upset.

If your cat ingests a small amount of PetArmor, it might experience symptoms such as drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, or mild stomach discomfort. These symptoms are typically self-limiting and resolve on their own without any specific treatment. However, if your cat ingests a large amount of the product or exhibits severe symptoms, it's important to seek veterinary assistance immediately.

Is PetArmor good for kittens?
Answer

PetArmor is generally safe for kittens over the age of 8 weeks and weighing at least 1.5 pounds (0.7 kilograms). However, different products within the PetArmor range may have specific guidelines regarding the minimum age and weight requirements. Before applying any flea or tick treatment to your kitten, consult with a veterinarian. They can evaluate your kitten's health, weight, and age to determine the most appropriate flea and tick control product for their specific needs. Additionally, your veterinarian can provide guidance on the proper application technique and frequency of use.

Why is my cat sleepy after flea treatment?
Answer

It is not uncommon for cats to exhibit sleepiness or lethargy after receiving a flea treatment. The active ingredients in certain topical spot-on treatments can have a systemic effect on your cat's body. These ingredients are designed to target and kill fleas and ticks by affecting their nervous systems. However, they can also have a mild sedative effect on cats, leading to drowsiness or lethargy. The degree of sleepiness can vary from cat to cat, and some cats may be more sensitive to the effects of the treatment than others. Additionally, the application process itself can be stressful for cats, and stress can contribute to feelings of tiredness. The handling, scent, or sensation of the treatment on their skin may temporarily disrupt their normal routine and cause them to seek extra rest.

Do fleas fall off cats after treatment?
Answer

Yes, fleas can fall off cats after treatment, especially when using effective flea treatments. Flea treatments, such as topical spot-on products or oral medications, are designed to kill adult fleas and disrupt their life cycle. After the treatment is applied to the cat's skin or ingested, the active ingredients work to eliminate the fleas on the cat. These treatments can kill fleas quickly, often within a few hours or days, depending on the product used. As the fleas are killed, they may detach from the cat's fur and fall off. However, not all fleas will immediately fall off after treatment. Some fleas may still be alive and present on the cat for a short period of time. However, these fleas will eventually die, and any new fleas that jump onto the treated cat will also be killed. It may take a few days for the flea population to be completely eradicated.

Why do cats hate flea medicine?
Answer

Cats may exhibit dislike or resistance towards flea medicine for several reasons. Some cats may have a heightened sensitivity or intolerance to certain ingredients in flea medicine. The scent, taste, or texture of the product may be unpleasant to them, leading to avoidance or resistance. The process of applying flea medicine can be stressful for cats. They may associate the application with restraint, handling, or discomfort, which can create negative associations with the product. Cats have a highly developed sense of smell and may be more sensitive to the odor of certain flea medications. Some products may have a strong scent that cats find offensive, causing them to resist or react negatively. Topical spot-on treatments can leave a residue on the cat's fur. Cats are known for their fastidious grooming behavior, and they may dislike the feel or taste of the medication residue, leading to attempts to lick it off or grooming excessively. If a cat has had a negative experience with flea medication in the past, such as adverse reactions or discomfort, it may develop an aversion or resistance to future treatments.
