Bio-Spot uses the same pesticide as the Hartz products that have killed a lot of cats (pyrethrins). It should not be used on cats. At least, not on cats that you'd like to still be alive and healthy a few days later. It's only a matter of time before this one gets recalled too.

Cheers,
Dr. Jean

Thanks for the info. I sent an e-mail to Drs.Foster&Smith so they could take into consideration, but I think it may fall on dead ears. I'll just have to wait for the reply to see what they have to say.

They said there's no need to worry because it doesn't contain a harmful amount, which is 45-60%(commonly found in dog topicals). Here's the ingredient break-down:
Active Ingredients:
Pyriproxyfen 2-[1-methyl-2 (4-phenoxyphenoxy) ethoxy] pyridine (Nylar) 5.3%
Other ingredients(inert) 94.7%

But they also warn about adverse reactions that may occur. BUT, Bio Spot only needs to be applied once every 3-months, so I don't know if it will be harmful.

Here's a helpful comparsion chart for diff. flea products: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/pic/article.cfm?dept_id=0&siteid=1&acatid=215&aid=449

flea

I wouldn't use it! mainly because it seems to shaky 8O (for lack of a better word)

Advantage, Frontline, and Revolution you can get directly from the vets office and there are many people who use them here without any problems, i would use one of those instead.

Best of wishes
