TODAY'S PET TIP
Flea Control in Cats
Here are some tips for battling fleas on your cat:
It is best to prevent fleas than to treat active infestations.
Repeat treatments are necessary to kill new fleas that jump on your pet and to kill the different stages of the flea as they develop in your home and yard.
For monthly products, keep a reminder system. Try giving medications the same day of every month. Place the reminder in your calendar or on your refrigerator.
Most veterinarians recommend year-round flea prevention.
Some flea control products are combined with heartworm prevention medications and other gastrointestinal parasite control. Talk to your vet about which product might be best for your cat.
