Flea Treatment

Flea Treatment
Keeping your cat free of fleas is very important. 

1.       To keep your cat healthy and comfortable.
2.       To keep you healthy and comfortable!

The cat flea have the potential to breed inside your house within 12 days, each female flea can lay several hundred eggs per week starting 24-48 hours after her first blood feed from your cat. Use flea treatment and flea drops regularly to ensure cat fleas do not return.
I usually have my cats vaccinated against fleas when I visit the vet for their annual check and vaccinations. The flea vaccination lasts 6 months. The other 6 months I use Frontal spot on every month.  Buy online as it can be cheaper than your vet. I buy from Vet UK
Gone are the days of covering kitty in flea powder. Spot on is very easy to use:
Apply Frontline for Cats by holding the pipette upright, tap to ensure contents are within the main body of the pipette, snap back the snap-off top  and squeeze to empty the frontline liquid preferably in more than one spot between the shoulder blades onto parted fur. Avoid excessive wetting of the fur as this will cause a transient sticky appearance of hairs at the treatment spot.
Always apply the frontline where your cat cannot lick off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other after treatment. Always allow the Frontline to dry before petting your cat and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the application site is dry.

  1. Thank you.

    Do you have any experience with flea treatment for cats, that won't hurt my dog?

    I read here that it's forbidden to use Advantix on dogs that are in the same home with cats:
    Best flea medicine for dogs

    The problem is - both my cat and dog have fleas, so I need a solution for them both together.

    Thank you!
