What does it do?

Paws Plus® for Cats is a monthly topical solution that:

How long does it last?

A single dose of Paws Plus® for Cats is effective for 30 days (up to 4 weeks). It's fast-acting so it starts working right away to kill fleas, lice, ticks, and other parasites. We deliver your cat's monthly dose when it's time to apply. This helps you stay free of fleas and ticks all year long.

How is it dosed?

One dose of Paws Plus® for Cats is safe and effective for cats weighing at least 1.5 pounds. With Paws Plus® all cats are "plus size" — meaning every cat receives the same amount of topical solution every month.

What age can I use this on my kitten?

Your kitten should be at least 8 weeks old before using Paws Plus® for Cats. We recommend checking with your veterinarian before starting treatment for cats and kittens.

Is it waterproof? Can I bathe my cat?

Paws Plus® for Cats is waterproof. However, the topical solution requires the natural oils in your cat's skin and fur to properly distribute the active ingredients.

Avoid bathing your cat or submerging them in water for at least 48 hours before and after treatment. If you bathe your cat often or want to get rid of adult fleas, flea dirt, and more — we recommend using a mild shampoo.

Are there any side effects?

While typically very rare, flea treatments (topicals, chewable, prescription oral flea/tick treatment, wearable treatments like a flea collar) can cause mild side effects. The active ingredient fipronil is an insecticide that stops parasites in their tracks.

The most common health-related symptoms include:

  • Hair loss

  • Skin irritation

  • Gastrointestinal problems

  • Lethargy

If these symptoms do not go away, contact your vet right away. You can also reach our emergency medical line at (888) 738-3911 — they are available 24/7.

Is it safe for dogs, rabbits, or other pets?

No! Paws Plus® for Cats is a product for cats only. Never use Paws Plus® flea treatment on dogs, rabbits, or other animals. Multi-pet owners — Wags Advance® flea and tick treatment for dogs is for you!

Can I use flea and tick medicine for cats on my pregnant, nursing, or breeding cat?

Our Paws Plus® for Cats topical flea & tick protection has not been tested on breeding, nursing, or pregnant cats. We always recommend you discuss applying any product to your cat in these conditions with your veterinarian. Feel free to contact our veterinarian team at help@petfriendlybox.com before you reach out to your vet.

Does it require a prescription?

Nope! Paws Plus® for Cats is delivered straight to your door without a prescription, veterinarian visit, or trip to the store.

But, we recommend checking with your veterinarian if you are switching from another prescription or over-the-counter flea and tick treatment to maintain your cat's health and continue to protect them from fleas and ticks.

Does it work against ear mites?

This product does not work against ear mites, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, or tapeworms. You will need a heartworm preventative in addition to this product.

But, this product prevents and kills fleas, ticks, and chewing lice. This includes flea eggs, flea larvae, and adult fleas.

If you're looking for a solution to ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, or tapeworms feel free to contact our vet team at help@petfriendlybox.com. They can provide a recommendation that includes an active ingredient like selamectin and sarolaner.

Can I use other flea & tick treatments (like flea collars or flea shampoo) in combination?

We recommend you pick one brand and stick to that flea and tick treatment exclusively:

  • If you are using another topical brand (like Chewy Onguard Plus®, Frontline Plus®, or Bravecto®), we recommend bathing your cat in degreasing dish soap and applying our topical flea and tick prevention 24-48 hours after.

  • If you are using a flea collar, we recommend bathing your cat in Dawn dish soap and applying our topical medication 24-48 hours after.

  • If you are treating with oral medications (like Capstar® or Revolution Plus®), we recommend waiting 30 days after treating your cat before applying our topical solution.

  • If you use or have already used shampoo, but want to switch to Paws Plus® for Cats, please contact our veterinarian team at help@petfriendlybox.com.

Why don't you offer oral flea and tick treatment for cats and kittens?

We currently offer topical treatments for cats because they are the most convenient and effective way to kill and prevent pests and parasites. We started with a topical rather than an oral treatment because:

  • Oral flea and tick treatments reside in your cat’s bloodstream. This requires insects to bite your cat to be effective. That bite can lead to other health problems for your cat like Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD).

  • Oral flea and tick treatments typically require a prescription. Most oral treatments require a prescription from your veterinarian. Paws Plus® for Cats is an over-the-counter topical flea treatment that gets delivered to your door just a few days after signing up.

  • Oral flea and tick treatments are often more expensive. Paws Plus® for Cats costs 20-40% less than the big brands (like Revolution Plus®). We also provide bonus treats in every box. Plus, you'll save on the time and cost of a veterinarian visit.

Pet owners know, that choosing the best flea and tick treatments for cats depends on several factors. No matter what you choose, consult with your veterinarian about potential risks.

I still see fleas and ticks, what gives?

Gaining full control of parasites (like fleas, ticks, and chewing lice) can take anywhere from 30 days to 12 weeks. Parasites can wreak havoc on your pets and in your home.

  • For cats and kittens: The best flea control is consistent prevention. This will help you prevent and kill fleas, black-legged deer ticks, and chewing lice — and prevent disease and re-infestations. Follow the instructions provided in the box for the best results.

  • For your home: Treat your home with a household spray that has IGRs. Best-in-class sprays cover a combination of fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests. We have one available to add to your box that will kill the insects and parasites in and around your home.
