Cat Flea Control

Flea control has come far over the last decade. At one time a flea infestation meant hours of cleaning and back-breaking bathing. Today, there are different options that are easier to use. Flea prevention options depend on you and your pet’s individual needs.

What are fleas?


Fleas are tiny parasites that feed on the blood of animals.

How do fleas harm cats?


Fleas are dangerous to our cats for many reasons. Firstly, they are very itchy, and some cats are even allergic to them and so can develop rashes and skin infections. If a cat has a large burden of fleas, they can actually become anemic and weak. Also, fleas are known to transmit deadly diseases and tapeworms to cats.

Why is treating and preventing fleas so important?


Treating and preventing fleas is important for the comfort of your cat as well as to prevent the aforementioned consequences. Treating your cat also protects you from flea bites.
