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.

Reliable and prompt service, far cheaper than buying at the vets. I resent having to pay high courier fees but otherwise a great service.
