When using this product, you may notice that your dog or cat will start scratching itself as fleas begin to die. The scratching behavior is temporary and is a reaction to the fleas, not the drug. In very rare cases in cats, this may present as transient signs of hyperactivity, panting, vocalization and excessive grooming.
