I usually order flea treatment through a mail order company but I was short on time because I was going out of town so went into the local PetCo. I bought this product because my usual brand was incredibly expensive in the store. I used Sentry Firpoguard on both cats with Capstar caplet. It did not get rid of the fleas; in fact, within days, they are as bad, if not worse, than before. The applicator is awkward and contains a lot of liquid so I had to pin my cats down to ensure that I applied all of it - I know I did because I've been doing this for years. Lesson learned: don't buy less expensive products because they end up being more expensive in the end AND allow enough time for mail order. My poor kitties!
We have been using this product for several years and to date, I have not found a tick or flea on our 4 legged baby. She also doesn't mind the smell as she has in the past using another brand. That is a very good thing.
This product states it is comparable to another brand name including the same ingredients, as mentioned on the front of the packaging. When I applied the solution some of my animals became sick almost within minutes of application (foaming at the mouth, vomiting). After 2-3 days the itching became worse and seemed to heighten in the animals who hadn't been originally affected as bad at first and now all animals are incessantly itching. 3 cats and 2 dogs. Treated all.
gave each of my 3 cats a dose and it did not work at all on any of my cats. My older cats hair actually fell out also in the places i treated her. On of my cats is white so i can easily see the fleas still on her.
Don't waste your money on this. After two applications (because my husband thought I didn't apply the first time properly), the fleas multiplied exponentially. I had to take my cat to the vet for a flea bath and a real flea treatment. Sorry, worst product ever.
It seems to work and mine are kitties that venture out into the back yard. I had no difficulty applying the vials. Of my 3 kitties, no reactions, no drama, no fear that I had put something on them that might have adverse reaction. They barely seemed to notice. The application was not terribly stinky or greasy on their fur after a couple of days although I did take care to not pet directly on the application site. Will certainly use again.
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!
