    I can't find anywhere that says a definite yes or no, can you use the pour on for cats?

    no it kills them. If they lick it it will kill them.

    Ok, we don't want that! I was just curious to see if it was the same as Revolution, only cheaper..but I don't want dead cats! [​IMG]

    Cats are overly sensitive to ivermectin. You need to measure in syringe the correct amount. I don't know that amount but it would be absolutely tiny. Other antiparasitics are a better choice. If you are treating external parasites then revolution, advantage, frontline, capstar, and sargeant's are all good options. I think the last 2 you can find at petstores.

    No, we haven't tried that and I just did some research and the frontline looks promising [​IMG] It is for treating earmites.

    Frontline won't treat ear mites effectively. Revolution will.

    Frontline has losts it's effectiveness in several areas of the country (including where I live). I would ask around before buying it. The fleas have become immune to it [​IMG]

    Advantage & Frontline is ok in he proper dose, just don't use Advantix on cats. It is very deadly to them.
