Flea & Tick Prevention

Fleas & Ticks

Keeping Your Cat Safe from Fleas & Ticks

If you own a cat, you have to do everything you can to keep him or her healthy. This includes keeping parasites like ticks and fleas away from your pet. If your kitty isn’t protected from ticks and fleas, it’s time to schedule an appointment with our veterinarian at Sheehy Animal Hospital of Livonia, MI, for preventative medicine services.

Importance of Flea and Tick Prevention 

If you let ticks and fleas infest your cat, it will expose your cat to numerous diseases. Ticks can transmit several diseases including Bartonella, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. On the other hand, flea bites cause skin allergies, anemia, and continuous itching may cause a wound that can be infected.

Signs of Parasite Infestation 

Want to have the upper hand over ticks and fleas? Seek vet care services immediately you spot the signs below:

  • Incessant scratching
  • Hair loss
  • Rashes
  • Bumps
  • Presence of a tick or flea on your pet’s skin

Tick and Flea Prevention Techniques

The first step in ensuring that ticks and fleas stay away from your pets is maintaining cleanliness. Fleas like hiding in the carpets, bedding, and clothing, so keep these items clean and aerated. Ticks like hiding in tall grass, so keep your lawn trimmed to keep ticks away from your pet.

While personal hygiene is essential in preventing parasites, consider medication to protect your cat from fleas and ticks. And the best part? Modern-day tick and flea prevention medications are easy on the cat. You don’t have to hide the tablet in the cat’s food, as the tablets are chewable. Even when your cat isn’t easy on the pills, we can provide ointments and other topical medication to keep parasites at bay.
