i just checked my favorite catalog ( and they have 'sentry natural defense' spray, powder and squeeze-on for about $9.00 and 'natural chemistry' spray and shampoo for $10 and $7. i have not tried these. i did use 'deflea' spray on my cats' bedding for a while, but they raised the price so i stopped buying it. shampoo is $7. spray is $10. maybe you can search the products online for reviews. good luck.
