Cat Flea and Tick Control

Everyone loves summer. Unfortunately, along with the warm weather and the sunshine, comes to those pesky little fleas! They can jump from other pets, or wildlife through the environment and onto your pet. Fleas are not just a nuisance, but they can cause serious problems for you and your pets.

What are fleas?

Fleas are insects that can infest your pet. They bite your pet, take a blood meal and then jump off to lay hundreds of eggs in their environment (this may include our home).

How do fleas harm cats?

Cats can be very sensitive to fleas. Some cats develop flea allergy dermatitis which is very itchy and painful. Fleas can transmit tapeworms, a gastrointestinal parasite, and blood-borne parasites to your cat. In large numbers, fleas can cause anemia from the relentless blood meals.

Why is treating and preventing fleas so important?

No one wants a flea infestation in their home, or on their pets. Prevention is easier and cheaper than having to deal with an outbreak. Your cat will thank you for that!

Simple steps for treating fleas in your senior cat?

Using a monthly spot-on flea preventative is the best way to prevent your cat from bringing home those pesky fleas.
