How does Stronghold for cats work?
Treating and Preventing Fleas
After applying Stronghold Spot On, the adult fleas on the are killed, no viable eggs are produced, and larvae are also killed.
This process breaks the flea lifecycle, stopping flea reproduction.
Prevent fleas returning by treating your cat or dog with Stronghold Spot On monthly during flea season (starting one month before the season starts)
Preventing Heartworm in Cats
Stronghold for cats can prevent heartworm. If you’re planning to travel to an area where mosquitoes may be present, administer Stronghold cat at least one month before exposure to mosquitoes, then monthly, ending one month after the final exposure.
To treat biting lice infestations, roundworm and intestinal hookworms, use Stronghold for cats just once.
How to apply Stronghold Spot On:
Apply to the skin at the base of the neck in front of the shoulder blades.
1) Remove the Stronghold for cats pipette from its protective package
2) Holding the pipette upright, firmly depress the cap to puncture the applicator seal, then remove the cap
3) Part the hair at the base of your animal’s neck in front of the shoulder blades to expose a small area of skin
4) Apply the tip of the Stronghold pipette directly to the skin without massaging.
5) Squeeze the pipette firmly to empty the contents in one spot.
6) Avoid contact between the product and your fingers

Excellent service, order received in 48hours. Well packaged and best of all saved almost £20 by ordering with Pet Drugs on line. Gets a thumbs up from me 👍
Great service, easy ordering and products well packaged. Did spot the products cheaper elsewhere after I purchased and delivery could have been a little quicker but good seller and would recommend.
Bought some Apoquel which was half the price my vet charged. They were very responsive and extremely quick.
Excellent service with a quick turn around and speedy delivery. Any communication I have had has been helpful and positive.
I have only used them a couple of times for my dogs food but I have to say that the service I received has been excellent. Great prices and speedy on time deliveries.
