Ticks and fleas
10 July 2012
It's important to keep your cats up to date with their flea and tick control programme, the best spot on products are the ones you buy from your vet, the shops often stock cheaper alternatives but not only are these products not licensed they often don't work and can even cause nasty skin irritation - false economy. Keep your cat in for a little while after application of spot ons to make sure they dont get washed off in the rain! A tick hook is also a handy peice of kit to have at home, ticks are horrible and there's plenty about right now, a proper hook ensures you can twist if off easily without leaving any parts behind to get infected.
For further advice on flea and tick treatment, please phone your local vet, who will be happy to help.
