Stronghold for Cats & Dogs
Stronghold is a topical treatment that protects your dog or cat from a broad spectrum of parasites. Stronghold is formulated to ease the process of preventing heartworms in pets, controlling flea infestations, and treating ear mites. It also works in treating tick infestations and sarcoptic mange in dogs, and is effective in controlling roundworms and hookworms in cats.
Just like other heartworm medications, Stronghold is a preventative medication and does not address existing heartworm. Make sure your pets get tested for heartworm first.
How Stronghold for Cats & Dogs works
Stronghold may be applied on dogs and puppies from 6 weeks of age, and cats and kittens from 8 weeks of age. Stronghold has been proven safe for use with pregnant and lactating dogs and cats.

I've been using this product for years on both my dog and cat (he's indoor/outdoor) with no side effects. Very good at flea control. Decent with the ticks too, although the pets can still carry them in the house and I'll find ticks (3 or 4 per year) crawling up the curtains and walls in late July and August. I think that is just because we haven't had severe winters the last 3 years and the insects survive better. I like that it covers worms and lice too. I am so thankful that I can buy it here at Pet Shed for the best price available! Highly recommended!
i use stronghold, revolution or advocate depending on which i can get the best deal on. I have 4 cats and 4 dogs...these are the best products i have ever used... no issues for the animals and oh so easy to administer!
