Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Mom hasn't exactly done all of her research yet, but thought in the mean time I could ask you guys. (I hope this is the best place to post about this) I was curious if anyone has had better results with any of the following kinds of flea medication: Revolution, Frontline, or Advantage. I have taken Revolution and didn't have any problems. And started taking Advantage before I got Feline Hepatic Lipidosis. (I mom was seeing some flea dirt and saw one flea on me at that point and gave me one dose of it.) Since then I've been trying to get my health back, my mum was by the vet specialist, to hold off using it again until I am feeling better. But the problem is that I started having the liver problems after seeing the vet and getting the Advantage. I don't know if it had to do with the stress of going to a new vet, or if the flea medicine didn't bode well with me. At any rate, mum is a little apprehensive using the Advantage again. I haven't tried Frontline before. And my normal vet (the one I saw before the specialist) said that Frontline is more geared towards outside kitties so it protects against ticks as well. I'm an inside cat, so Advantage seemed like the way to go.
So I guess mom's question is, have any of you experianced any health problems after taking flea meds? I know that this stuff is important to keep fleas away, but isn't it basically like a poison? If I did lick some off could it affect my liver which breaks down chemicals...? Hope someone might be able to give some insight....:-k
