Cat Flea Control

Cat Flea Control

Fleas can transmit a disease to both your cats and their human owners. Contrary to popular belief, fleas can and do affect indoor only cats. A prevention program is better for your cat and less expensive for the owner than dealing with an infestation that has taken hold in the home.

How do I know if my cat has fleas?


Look for signs of itching, hair loss, live fleas and flea dirt. Often, by the time fleas have been discovered, they have already laid their eggs in the home and started a more difficult-to-treat problem.

Do fleas harm cats?


Yes, fleas can carry tapeworm, which may be fatal to humans.

Why is treating and preventing fleas so important?


To ensure your animal has a good quality of life, not losing blood and not itching all the time.

What are some simple steps for treating fleas in your senior cat?


Topical flea treatment is an option.
