Flea Treatment for Cats
How to get rid of fleas on cats?
Cats and kittens need to be regularly treated for both fleas and ticks to prevent an infestation. Often you will not be able to see the full extent of a flea infestation as flea eggs hide in and around your pet’s beds, household furniture, and even your carpet.
You can use effective flea treatments like Bravecto Spot On, Seresto Collars and Revolution Plus to both treat pre-existing flea infestations and as a prevention method.

Tick Treatment for Cats
How to tell if your cat has ticks?
If your cat has ticks, you most likely will be able to spot them. However you should still manually check your cat for ticks, particularly in tick prone areas, by running your fingers systematically through your cat’s fur and feeling the skin. Take particular care around the head, neck and feet and any folds of skin.
What is the best tick treatment for cats?
The best tick treatment is the one that you actually apply! Purchasing a tick treatment and then forgetting to apply it happens only too frequently, and sometimes with devastating results. In terms of active ingredients, there are constantly new products being developed which are rigorously tested and have wide safety margins for use on your pets. They also may only need to be applied every few weeks or months instead of every few days. Make sure you check the usage instructions carefully. Our top tick treatments for cats include Bravecto’s range of Spot-ons, andFrontline Spray. For a more natural approach you can try diatomaceous earth such as that offered in Pawesome Organics DErt Control.
