The Smart Shield® Applicator is specially designed to make applying flea and tick control easier, more precise - and neater - than ever before. You simply insert the appropriate tube for your cat/kitten into the applicator, close it and squeeze to apply. The applicator’s ergonomic, contoured shape makes it easy to grip and a built-in tip helps to spread the cat’s/kitten’s hair to allow the liquid to more readily reach the skin. The tube is sealed inside, so you can be confident that the liquid goes onto your cat/kitten - and not your hand.

Adams™ for Cats Flea & Tick Spot On® provides relief from flea infestations for up to 30 days by killing adult fleas and flea eggs on your cat or kitten.

This product is most effective when used as part of a total flea and tick management program. Use other Adams™ products registered for residential area control of these pests in conjunction with this treatment. Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on cats may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of cats with this product rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.
