How to Keep Your Cat Safe from Fleas and Ticks

Administer Oral Medication

Oral medications are effective in keeping parasites away. Talk to our veterinarians so we can advise you on which products are safe for your cat.

Use Shampoos

Using shampoos when you bathe your cat helps kill ticks and fleas. Some shampoos also have a scent that prevents flea and tick infestation.

Use Tick Dips

A tick dip is a solution containing a tick-killing chemical and water. Don’t forget to read the usage instructions carefully when using any chemical product on your pet. Also, ask our veterinarians if the product is safe for your cat before purchasing it.

Use Powders

There are several powder products available that prevent and kill ticks and fleas. Be careful when using these powders since some are not supposed to get into the eyes or mouth of a cat. We will also guide you on the right powder products to use. If you suspect your cat has fleas or ticks, first check the body to confirm if your suspicions are correct. It is easy to identify these parasites as they constantly move around in the fur.
