  • <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Frontline Plus May Be Harmful

    The manufacturers of Frontline Plus recommend that you not use their product on medicated or debilitated animals without first consulting your veterinarian. A cat with CRF (Chronic Renal Failure) is likely to fall into one or both of these categories.

    On the Other: Frontline Plus May Help Prevent Anemia

    Cats with CRF often develop anemia. A flea infestation can make anemia worse, since the fleas feed on the cat's blood. Frontline Plus can clear up a flea infestation or prevent one, thereby reducing the chances of anemia in your CRF cat.

    Bottom Line

    Although Frontline Plus may be harmless to a CRF cat, there are risks. Never use Frontline Plus or any over-the-counter flea medication without consulting your veterinarian. He knows your cat's medical history and the specific effects that CRF has on your cat.
