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.
