Cat Flea Control

Fleas and ticks can cause skin issues and have the potential to transmit harmful diseases to you and your pet.

How do I know if my cat has fleas?

First, identify ‘flea dirt’ – small, pepper-like specks that are visible to the naked eye. You can separate the fur to find flea dirt or by using a flea comb. Live adult fleas are somewhat tricky to spy, due to how fast they can scurry around on your cat.

Do fleas harm cats?

Fleas can transmit illness, cause dermatitis, and when ingested, transmit tapeworms. In more severe infestations, fleas can cause anemia.

Why is treating and preventing fleas so important?

Fleas can be a little critter that causes a BIG problem. If not caught early, they can quickly move from your pet to your whole house! It’s easier to prevent the problem than to solve it.

Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
