How Does Stronghold Flea Treatment Work?
Stronghold flea treatments offer your pet four weeks' worth of parasite protection in just one treatment.
The active ingredient, Selamectin, kills fleas as well as their eggs and larvae to effectively break the flea life cycle. As well as killing fleas, Stronghold for dogs and cats also treats:
- → Roundworms
- → Sarcoptic mange
- → Biting lice
- → Prevention of heartworm disease
- → Adult roundworms
- → Adult hookworms
- → Biting lice
- → Ear mite infestations
Stronghold also offers Stronghold Plus for cats, which offers even more protection for cats with, or at risk from, mixed parasitic infestations by ticks and fleas, lice, mites, gastrointestinal nematodes or heartworm.

Can You Buy Stronghold Without a Vet Prescription?
All Stronghold and Stronghold Plus products are prescription-only veterinary medicines, which means they can only be purchased using a valid, in-date prescription from your vet.
You can learn more about ordering a prescription medicine for your pet from Pet Drugs Online on our prescription information page. For your pet's safety, always be wary of any organisation offering to sell Stronghold or any other prescription-only veterinary medicines without a prescription.
Please note, while we have an onsite vet to oversee the sales of prescription medicines, we do not offer veterinary consultations or advice.
