I have been using this for a on my english setter who really had a major flea problem last year. After about 4-5 months her coat was rich and luxurious again. I realized just recently that she has no flea problem this year. Last year I gave it her according to direction and since about Jan I give her one pill per month and still no fleas. I just drop it in her food and she eats it with the food. Loving this and plan to keep her on it as it extremely effective. Glad to have stumbled upon it and not sure where I purchased it on line.

Proban for cats
Mar 14, 2011

I had used Proban years ago, which I had gotten from my Vet. It was very effective against fleas and ticks. My Vet switched to the topical type of flea protection, such as Frontline and Advantage, as they came into favor more. For dogs, due to their size and weight, these treatments are the most ecconomical way to go. For cats, although, they work well, they are so expensive, especially when you have multiple cats, about $10 USD a dose, every month, per cat. Proban dosage is 1/4 or 1/2 tablet, twice a week according to your cat's weight. At $50 USD per 100 tablets, it's a whole lot cheaper. My cat's have no real problems taking pills. I just tilt their head back, pry open their mouth and drop the tablet in. I guess you could be creative, such as hiding the tablet in a treat. For this low of cost, there is no excuse for allowing your pets to suffer from fleas and ticks. Sometimes the older technology is better.
