Your cat might be scratching and over-grooming its armpits and ears resulting in redness of skin on those spots.
It is a boring and painful experience to watch your cat hurting itself.
Cheristin for cats might help your cat and live a happy life with irritation.
What is Cheristin?
Cheristin is a medication for cats that is meant to treat flea.
The topical solution can be used externally on kittens aged 8 months and older cats. The solution starts killing fleas within 30 minutes of application and can be used once per month.
The medication contains an insecticide called spinetoram. The medication can be bought over the counter without a prescription.
How Do You Use Cheristin for Cats?
It is advised to read the label of the medicine so as to avoid mishandling the medication. You must apply one tube once per month to kill fleas and to avoid re-infestations.
You must part the hair on the neck and make sure that the skin is visible so that you apply the medication directly onto the skin. Open the medicine and place directly above the visible skin.
- Apply medication preferably at the base of the head so that the cat might not reach the spot when grooming itself
- Applying the medicine at the base of the head may prevent the cat from licking it
- Make sure that you discard the empty tube properly
- Do not reuse the container
