A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Cheristin for Cats (Spinetoram) is a topical flea treatment designed specifically for cats. While monthly application is recommended, Cheristin’s long lasting formula protects against fleas through 6 weeks and is applied using a rounded tip applicator for comfortable, easy application. Cheristin comes in one dose size for all cats and kittens (1.8 lbs and greater or 8 weeks of age and older), making it great for families with multiple cats. Cheristin is available without a prescription.
1. Hold the applicator tube upright and press cap down until it clicks, indicating the tube has been punctured. 2. Remove the cap and make sure there is an opening at the tip of the tube. 3. Part the hair on your cat’s neck at the base of the head until skin is visible. 4. Place the tip of the tube directly above the skin and squeeze 2-4 times to dispense the contents directly on the skin.
