Flea and Tick Prevention for Cats & Kittens

All cats in the St. Louis area are at risk for fleas, especially if they go outside or live in homes with dogs.  

Fleas can not only cause extreme itching and skin disease in your pets, but they can also carry tapeworms (intestinal parasites). Pets can bring fleas into your home, causing problems for your entire household! You can read more about those pesky free loaders here.

Ticks can also carry serious diseases in pets and people, including Ehrlichia, Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis. Again, pets can carry ticks into your home, where they could re-attach to people, so prevention is best for everyone! For more information about ticks and diseases they may carry, visit this link.

We offer several flea and tick preventatives to keep your pet covered year round. All new kittens are sent home with a complimentary dose of Revolution Plus, a once-monthly, topical product that protects cats against fleas, ticks, heartworm disease, ear mites, roundworms and hookworms. 

Can’t make it into the clinic to pick up your preventatives? All of our preventatives can also be found on our online pharmacy and shipped directly to your door!
