Flea Shampoo for Cats

Wash Fleas Off Cats

Adult cat fleas are permanent ectoparasites. Once a host is acquired, the fleas won’t leave unless they are dislodged or die. Regular blood meals are required for survival and reproduction.

An effective flea shampoo for cats will contain an adulticide and an insect growth regulator (IGR). The adulticide (pyrethrins) in the soap will kill adult fleas on the cat. The IGR (methoprene or pyriproxyfen) will prevent eggs and larvae from maturing into adults.
