|Fleas are eager to form a close relationship
with your cat. These common parasites feed
on your pet (and even on you) for the blood
meals they need to survive.
FLEA ALLERGY DERMATITIS - Many
cats are allergic to flea saliva. Although
fleas will make any cat scratch, the
intense iching of this allergy causes
vigorous scratching, inflammation,
lesions, and hair loss.
TAPEWORM INFESTATION - Fleas can harbor
immature D. caninum tapeworms, which they
pass on to your cat.
ANEMIA - Large numbers of fleas ingesting large
amounts of blood can cause anemia, especially in
kittens. Severe anemia can be fatal.
- Feline Infectious Anemia affects the
red blood cells of cats, causing anemia,
depression, appetite loss, and fever.
- Bubonic Plague is a sometimes fatal
disease in humans that causes enlarged
lymph nodes and fever.
Monthly preventives are the easy way to avoid flea
infestation. These safe and effective products are
specially formulated to prevent fleas from ever landing
on your pet or invading your home.
Most popular are topicals, which are applied directly
onto your pet's skin. Oral preventives are
usually liquid for cats (or tablets for dogs.
