Hi /an/. My house seems to have picked up fleas and they're bothering my cat. Where is a good place to pick up flea meds? My vet is cheap but I can't take my cat in the the vet every month just to get that dot of stuff on her neck (it freaks my cat the fuck out and I would prefer to not subject that to her if she doesn't have a health issue).

Now, here's the complication. I know that getting rid of the fleas in the house would be a huge help. Except I have tarantulas and I don't want to risk their lives by bombing the house (even the residue of flea bombs can mess them up).

Any advice?

Revolution + diatomaceous earth.

Do not use it anywhere near the tarantulas, however; diatomaceous earth works by drying out exoskeletons.

I buy the same drops online for like 200 bucks less than the vet would charge at canadavet.com, the have a US version too I think
fuck I sound like an ad

Vacuum, wash as many of your fabrics as you can and vacuum some more.

And why do you have to take your cat in? I always just bought the dose(s) from either the vet, pet store or online and applied it myself.

Partially because my vet won't sell me any without an appointment. Partially because I bought some cheap shit at Wal-Mart and it gave her a nasty sore and made almost all of her hair fall out (Note: she got better). I just don't know where to get the good stuff, would Petsmart or Petco have it?

I second diatomaceous earth. Our dogs had a bad flea problem where sprays, topical applications, vacuuming, nothing seemed to work. Bought this stuff and it worked like a charm. It makes your house a powdered mess, but it's worth it. Make sure to buy the food grade quality and it'll be safe for the cat to eat - in fact, it'll probably be beneficial to eat.
