A Wondercat’s Guide to Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home
We know cats can be sensitive, but at Wondercide, we understand exactly what they need to safely keep fleas and ticks at bay. Just follow these simple instructions made especially for our feline friends, and keep your cats happy, naturally.
We recommend the 4oz mister for cats because it outputs the correct amount of solution, but the full size spray bottles can be used succesfully if you're careful to not overapply. Some cats may be intimidated by the size and sound of the larger sprayers, whereas the 4oz mister can be held in your pocket and applied in a calm setting to ensure a stress-free experience. We recommend that you refill your 4oz mister with the larger bottles so you'll always have a supply of Wondercide handy.
WHY WONDERCIDE IS SAFE FOR CATS
Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home uses cat-safe cedar oil, which is properly diluted. It is not known to be harmful to cats or kittens since it does not contain phenols or phenolic compounds, which occur naturally in many essential oils. This is important because cats do not have the liver enzyme to detoxify phenols found in many essential oils; that's why essential oils have a bad rap among cat crowds. But rest assured, Wondercide products made with cedar oil are formulated to be natural and phenol-free. Independent lab tests verify our products don’t contain any phenolic compounds, so you can feel good about using our Flea & Tick Control on your cats.
FIRST, TEST FOR SENSITIVITY
We recommend that you test any new product that you introduce to your pets. Before you apply Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home to your cat’s whole body, you should apply a small amount of solution to the back of his/her neck and wait 1 hour. If no signs of sensitivity occur, you can apply product to your cat’s whole body.
SHAKE, SPRAY & PLAY!
Rub your cat’s coat in the opposite direction of growth and lightly mist his/her body, belly, legs & tail. Do not soak your cat with the solution. Apply 2-3 times per week, or as needed. Safe for daily use.
Note: If your cat already has fleas and you treat with Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home but see fleas return in a few days, you will need to treat the environment, not just the cat. Treat all surfaces inside your home, paying special attention to your cat's favorite hangout spots, like the couch, a shelf or their pet bed. When cats get fleas, they drop eggs and larvae everywhere they go, and those hatch into pupae and then adult fleas. This takes between 7 days and several months, depending on climate. The best way to get rid of fleas and eliminate the problem is to treat your pet's environment.
TREATING THE ENVIRONMENT
As mentioned above, an effective way to prevent flea & tick infestations is to treat your indoor and outdoor environment. Since pests originate outdoors, you should treat your outdoor space with Flea & Tick Control for Yard + Garden, where applicable. Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home should be used indoors. Both products kill adult fleas and ticks, and prevent the egg life cycle from hatching.
IF SENSITIVITY OCCURS
If your cat shows signs of sensitivity to Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home, wash the solution off and discontinue application on your pet. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian. If you are still seeing fleas, treat the indoor and outdoor environment instead of your cat to control the source of your the flea or tick problem.
POSSIBLE SIGNS OF SENSITIVITY
Reactions to Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home are extremely rare, especially when you use the 4oz mister to ensure lighter application of the solution. However, cats are especially sensitive and may occasionally have reactions ranging from mild to moderate, generally as a result of ingesting too much product. Additionally, the therapeutic grade cedar oil used in Wondercide products provides an aromatherapeutic calming effect, which may be overwhelming to your cat's senses at first and display as lethargy. Other behavioral responses could be hiding or not returning to their favorite sleeping places until the aroma has dissipated. With routine preventative use and our stress-free application approach, you and your cats will love using Wondercide.
Below are some behaviors that your cat could display if s/he is super sensitive. THESE ARE NOT TOXICITY RESPONSES, as Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home is a natural, phenol-free product. Any reactions should subside on their own within 24 hours. Please consult a veterinarian if signs do continue.
