Flea & Tick Prevention Keeping Your Cat Safe from Fleas & Ticks

Flea & Tick Prevention: Keeping Your Cat Safe from Fleas & Ticks

When parasites like fleas and ticks infest cats, it can cause a wide range of health problems. That’s why parasite prevention is such an important part of caring for your cat. Even one flea or tick can cause adverse reactions in pets and your cat deserves to live free from parasites. If your pet has become infested, or you want to keep him from becoming infested, contact Waldorf Emergency Care to make an appointment with one of our veterinarians.

Fleas and Ticks

Fleas are parasites that love to bite pets. When they do so, cats can get itchy spots that can be painful and can easily become infected. When there is a flea on your cat, it is common for pets to bite and chew on the area. These bites can lead to infections that are worse than just a painful or itchy spot. Pets can swallow a flea, and this can lead to tapeworms.

Ticks are parasites that carry many strains of bacteria. They can get Lyme disease from the bite of a tick. Pets can also get feline infectious anemia as well as feline babesiosis. Like flea bites, their bites can become infected. It is important to check your cat often for fleas and ticks so that they can be removed quickly. Leaving the ticks in his fur can lead to these pests multiplying quickly.

Parasite Prevention

If your pet has fleas or ticks, or you want to make sure they won’t get them, there are parasite prevention medications that your cat can take. This medication lasts for a while and keeps your pet free from these pests. If your cat spends any time outside, your cat needs to be put on preventative medicine.
