What are fleas?


Fleas are tiny, dark brown, wingless insects that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals, including cats. They are known for their ability to jump long distances, making it easy for them to spread from one animal to another.


Why are fleas a problem for cats?


Fleas can cause a range of problems for cats, including skin irritation, itching, and infection. In severe cases, fleas can cause anemia in cats, which is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition. In addition, fleas can also transmit other parasites and diseases to your cat.

  • Regular grooming: Regular brushing and bathing can help remove fleas and their eggs from your cat's fur.
  • Flea medication: There are many effective flea medications available for cats, including topical treatments, pills, and collars. Talk to your veterinarian about which option is best for your cat.
  • Clean your home: Vacuum your home regularly and wash your cat's bedding to remove any fleas and their eggs.
  • Keep your yard tidy: Mow your lawn regularly, remove any tall grass, and keep your garden free of debris to reduce the number of fleas in your yard.


By taking these steps, you can help protect your cat from fleas and enjoy a happy, healthy summer together. If you have any concerns about fleas or other pests, consult with your veterinarian for the best advice.
