Cheristin for Cats
What is this product used for:
Cheristin for Cats contains spinetoram, an insecticide that kills fleas on contact by targeting the fleas’ nervous systems, resulting in paralysis and rapid death.
Cheristin for Cats is a non-prescription product.
How this product should be used:
Remove one applicator tube from the blister package. Hold applicator tube in an upright position. Press cap down until it clicks (indicating the tube has been punctured). Hold upright and remove cap. Check to be sure there is an opening at the tip of tube. Part the hair on the neck at the base of the head until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube directly above the skin and squeeze the tube 2-4 times to expel the contents of the tube directly on the skin. Avoid getting the product in your pet’s eyes or mouth. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for the cat to directly lick the product. (There may be a small residual remaining in the tube after a full dose is expelled.) Discard empty applicator tube in the trash.
What are the side effects:
Monitor your cat after application. Side effects may include signs of application site reactions such as application site hair loss, hair change (greasy, clumping or matting) of redness, inflammation and itching. Other side effects such as inactivity, vomiting and inappetence have also been reported. If these or any other side effects occur, consult your veterinarian, your cat’s healthcare expert.
