What are fleas and ticks?
Fleas and ticks are the most common parasites your cat can pick up. Not only can they make your cat really miserable, but if left untreated, these parasites can cause infection and lead to more serious diseases.
Fleas: extremely common, fleas can be difficult to eradicate. A single flea can live on your cat for almost 2 months!
Ticks: while less common than fleas, ticks have the potential to be much more harmful. Left untreated, they can be deadly.
How often should you treat your cat for fleas and ticks?
Generally speaking, cats should be treated once every month for parasite prevention, but the frequency of treatment will depend on the product itself. Different brands or products may require different dosages.
It’s best to consult with a vet for advice on the most suitable flea and tick treatment for your cat or kitten. They can advise you on the best age for your pet to begin treatment.
What is the best flea and tick treatment for cats?
Flea and tick treatment for cats come in many different forms, including oral chewables, topical spot-ons, topical sprays and collars.
If you have a fussy cat that spits out its medication or refuses wet foods, then topical treatments or collars may be a more suitable option. It’s commonly applied to the skin on the back of your cat's neck. You need to make sure your cat is completely dry before applying a topical treatment, and they must remain dry for 48 hours after.
Oral treatments are a great option for cats that love their treats. It may also be a safer alternative if you have children in the house. Topical treatments can cause a reaction if they come into contact with your child’s eyes or nose.
