They're creepy, they're crawly...and they can carry diseases. Fleas and ticks are not just a nuisance but pose animal and human health risks. They suck your pet's blood, they suck human blood, and can transmit diseases. Some of the diseases that fleas and ticks can spread from animals to humans include plague, Lyme’s disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, bartonella, and others. That's why it's critical to protect your cat from these pesky parasites and keep the creepy crawlies out of your home.
Fortunately, there are many effective flea and tick preventives on the market to help control the pests and prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases. Knowing what kind of product to use and how to use it is critical to the health and safety of your cat.
