Cat Flea and Tick Control

Fleas and ticks have become a year-round concern for pet owners and pets alike. Not only do these parasites have the ‘ick’ factor but both can be responsible for disease transmission to pets and people.

What are fleas?


A flea is a small wingless jumping insect, a parasite that survives by ingesting the blood of warm-blooded hosts. Fleas transmit diseases through their bite.

How can fleas harm the cats?


Fleas bite the cat, and this can cause a flea bite reaction or flea allergy dermatitis which causes itching and hair loss. Fleas can also transmit diseases.
