No better than a regular bath

This will stun fleas and wash them off your cat, but it doesn't solve the problem. My girl had a bath in this, and while it did clear them out for the most part, it certainly didn't stop them from coming back. Within two days, the problem was as bad as it had been before. (And I'd done as much environmental control as possible, vacuuming and washing all bedding and soft areas). It does have a nice scent, but you could get as much from a regular shampoo as well. Save the money to put towards a proper flea treatment from your vet.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

We bathed our cats with Sentry PurrScriptions according to the directions. The bottle recommends leaving the shampoo on for five minutes before rinsing, we left on for a little longer. When the cats were fully dry, we combed them with a flea comb, and pulled about 30 living fleas off the cats. The next day we are still finding live fleas on them. Sentry claims 30 days of protection. They could not even provide us with one day. I would not purchase their product again.

My husband and I recently started fostering a cat through a rescue organization. One of the volunteers brought me a foster cat who had fleas (and didn't tell me). After discovering the fleas an hour after I got him home, we closed him in the bathroom for the night and I got this Sentry Purrscriptions Plus flea bath for him the next morning. This flea bath really works. Thank God. You need to bathe the cat and rub the shampoo in for 10 minutes (not 4 or 5 like the bottle says) while brushing him EVERYWHERE with a flea comb at the same time. Don't forget to flea comb his cheeks and inside of ears.. the fleas were running from the shampoo and water and were huddling on the poor cat's cheeks, whiskers, and ear hairs... needless to say all the fleas were killed including their eggs. The cat has been with us for 3 weeks now and not a single flea has appeared. He also smelled so lovely and fresh after the bath :) PS you will see dead fleas falling off of him for the next couple of days, don't be alarmed, they're dead.
I would recommend this to a friend!
