Have you used either on for flea treatments for you cat? My cat weights around 9 lbs and I have found a flea on her so I need to get her treated. There are so many choices but these two look to be some of the better ones from what I can tell.

for over the counter, either, Frontline has some resistence. our rescue uses Revolution, but you have to get it from your vet. DO NOT use Hartz for any reason....

I use Revolution. It is very effective, works fast on live fleas and eggs. It also treats for other parasites such as some intestinal worms and ear mites---if your cat goes outside at all then its good to treat for those. If your vet will give you a prescription you can get it cheaper at Costco pharmacy or online.

We use Frontline. We switched at one time to I want to say Kirkland from Costco, and ended up infested. I swore I would never switch again. With that said, they are now selling Adams and I've been wondering about that since it's a lot cheaper, but I'm super wary.
