Cat Flea & Tick

It’s every pet parent’s nightmare, your cuddly companion has contracted a pesky pest. Fleas and ticks cause a myriad of problems for both kitty and pet parent. Cat fleas are small, dark brown to black insects whose bodies are hardened. While they cannot fly, they have strong hind legs which help them jump. Their mouths are designed to be able to pierce through your pet’s skin and suck their blood. Fleas can live one to two and a half months depending on the temperature and humidity. That’s enough time to cause your kitty significant discomfort. Signs your cat has fleas include “flea dirt” in their coat, excessive scratching, licking or biting at the skin and loss of hair. There are several flea treatments available for cats. Some kill fleas that live on your pet, while others help kill pests that live in your home or yard. The best cat flea treatment will not only attack adult fleas, but eggs and larvae as well. Chewy carries the best flea treatments for cats from brands like Advantage II, Seresto, and Frontline Plus. Flea medicine for cats contains ingredients like fipronil and methoprene which kill adult fleas, and flea eggs and larvae. Frontline Plus flea and tick treatment for cats kills fleas, ticks, chewing lice, and flea eggs and larvae that can transmit Lyme disease. Frontline Plus comes highly recommended by veterinarians as a good cat flea medicine option. Ticks can carry potentially fatal diseases that are transmitted when the tick bites your cat. To prevent the transmission of disease via ticks, it’s important to check your feline friend for unwanted pests periodically. Fortunately, ticks are easier to spot in cats than fleas. Ticks are usually dark and large enough to see. Ticks tend to bury their heads into a cat’s skin and feed. The more they feed, the larger and more visible their bodies become. To address ticks, try a cat tick treatment like Advantage II. Be sure to spray your home and yard for fleas and ticks as well using a product like Vet’s Best Flea and Tick Home Spray tick treatment for cats.
