Hello I have 2 indoor cats that were somehow getting fleas. I purchased the Sentry home for both of them. It has been 3 weeks since I have treated them, and they still are having fleas. BAD, so I had to get something else to treat them with.
I have 4 cats and they are indoor cats but I have gotten fleas in the past. My vet told me I could bring them in on my clothes or they could come through screen windows. I am on a fixed budget so I decided to try this product and it was great. Doesn't have that awful smell other flea meds. have and I have no evidence of fleas.
we recieved a kitten with fleas, I washed her 2 times a day for three weeks, combed her 2 times a day and put a flea collar on her. All this did not work. As soon as I got the fiproguard I put this on her and she now has been flea free for a week. I still comb her 2 times a day. but so far so good...
I honestly expected this to be a better product, especially since it's from Sergeant's. Either the active ingredient isn't as strong as advertised, or the fleas are becoming immune to it. It doesn't last anywhere near the six weeks stated on the box; two weeks are all I've had it last. And my cat does NOT go outdoors.
Product worked as advertised, at a very good price!

This product has worked great! I applied it exactly as directed (one spot on skin, not hair; not necessarily easy with two of the cats being long haired). Although I immediately started seeing dead fleas, I did find that it took about 10 days to really approach the problem. However, this would make sense, since flea eggs would already have been laid; these would continue to hatch. I watched the cats carefully and observed no side affects whatsoever. I definitely plan to apply it again shortly at the end of the 30 day period.
Our cats do roam our isolated foothills property and they are exposed to ticks incl. deer ticks, fleas and other nasties. Fiproguard keeps them off or if they land on a cat, they don't attach and you can remove them easily. Good product and swift delivery for a very fair price. We will be re-ordering !
While Sentry FIPROGUARD Cat & Kitten Topical Flea & Tick Treatment has the identical ingredient fipronil as Frontline, I wondered why my ragdoll, Dolly was still scratching a week later of application. Upon a thorough inspection; I saw fleas frolicking from her rib cage towards the tail and underside area. Further research of why the buggers were not dying, is, Sentry FIPROGUARD Cat & Kitten Topical Flea & Tick Treatment is missing the key ingredient (S)-methoprene which allows the product to spread through the skin and up through the fur follicles, (translocation technology) hence giving full body protection. For Dolly at least, unless the fleas get near the application point, it has no affect what so ever of killing fleas. In my opinion, it’s like a liquid flea collar. For me, and Dolly, lesson learned a bit and many undesirable bites too late. How could have I missed this important fact? Back to the name brand.
this product works great! I cat has been having the flea problem since she was a kitten, and i tired shampoos and other cheat flea products. Nothing Work, so i finally tired this one, within a week or so her fleas were gone. I mean til know she is completely flea free(:
There was a minor case of fleas a few months back, but the household is very short on extra cash, and the employee at the Frandor PetCo recommended this as the best budget spot treatment. The house has three indoor cats, one nineteen, one twelve, and one five, and this was even safe on the nineteen-year-old! (You should still consult your regular vet before using it on a geriatric kitty.) I would definitely recommend it to friends, and use it the next time fleas get in.
We a used to use the other brand that this is "comparable to" without ever seeing a flea. I switched to see if we could save some money. Well, we are on our third month and while we don't have a mass infestation, our cats do have fleas. I would say that this may minimize the number of fleas, but it's cold here so fleas are less active this time of year any way. I would find one or two on the cats here and there, but after finding one in my daughters HAIR we will be switching back - it's worth the extra money spent. I also wonder how much of a difference it made starting to apply on a cat that already was flea-free. If the cats already had fleas, I can't imagine how ineffective it would have been then!
My poor kitty is still scratching at those fleas. Don't buy this product!! I thought, "Wow, what a great deal" but I should have known better. Be willing to spend the extra 20 bucks or so on a product that will help your cat.
This stuff works just as good as the expensive ones. We had an outbreak months ago and my very small cat lost her hair. when we finally got rid of those, her hair started to come back, but then we moved where all the animals ended up with fleas again. dogs and cats. So my 3 pound cat ended up a hairless cat. Looked really bad and suffering. So I needed something that was gentle enough for kittens since that is her size, and she took to it very well. No more fleas already, the stuff works fast and lasts the full 30 days, and she has almost all her hair back, looking as sleek and shiny as she was before all of this. Will be using the shampoo when I run out of this product. But will buy this again if end up with another really bad outbreak.
This product is the best, 1 of our cats is very senitive to flea, with-in just a couple days he is soft and back to his old self, will use nothing but this product to keep the flea's away and my kitty's happy
I really like this product. It is lower cost than other name brands while still working just as well. It does not leave a big, greasy spot on the back of my cats' necks. The one thing I wish the vendor would improve is the packaging. The tubes must be opened with scissors and the tubes are white. I would like to be able to see into the tube. As well, when you have 3 cats to apply flea meeds to, it would make things easier if I did not have to use scissors. Overall, this is a good product. A great alternative to it's name brand counterpart. I will be using it again!
This product is hard to use because it looks like it is in a blister pack (you see a tube with a cap outline) but instead the medicine is in the outline and needs to be opened with a scissors across the top. There are no opening instructions.
