Cat Flea & Tick Collars
Cat fleas are small, dark brown or black insects that pierce cat skin and suck on their blood. Cat fleas can live on a wide range of hosts including raccoons, opossums, skunks and foxes, making it possible for outdoor animals to infect your pet. Common signs of fleas on cats include flea dirt in your cat’s coat, excessive scratching, licking or biting of the skin and hair loss. Cat fleas can transmit diseases which is why it’s important to kill fleas quickly. Fleas can transport diseases to your pet and to you including flea-borne typhus, bartonellosis, flea tapeworm and bacterial infections. Cat ticks are just as bad as fleas, but easier to spot. Cat ticks are a threat for a number of reasons, including the fact that they can drain your feline friend of significant amounts of blood. A large number of cat ticks can cause your precious pet to become anemic. There are also several tick-born diseases that can harm your purring pet. Ticks don’t move around much once they’ve dug their head into your cat to feed. A flea and tick collar for cats is a great way to keep pesky pests at bay.
