How does a flea shampoo work on your cat?

As for dogs, a flea shampoo can help your cat get rid of fleas faster. Cats are more sensitive to substances that kill fleas than dogs. Substances that you can safely use on dogs can be toxic for cats. For cats, there are therefore mainly shampoos with natural ingredients. Think of Dimethicon in the Gentle Shampoo Dimethicon or the natural formula with plant extracts in the Stop! Animal Bodyguard Flea Shampoo.

These shampoos create a natural, physical barrier against fleas. This effect often lasts for about 10-14 days. In addition, you rinse off any remaining live fleas from your cat by washing.
