About Our Flea and Tick Prevention Products for Cats
Living with pets, also means dealing with their parasites. With such an array of treatments available, deciding what to use and how often means navigating a minefield of sometimes misleading information. At Love That Pet we only flea and tick treatment for cats products that work and are safe for your pet. We aim to help you keep your pet healthy and your family safe, with products that are cost effective and convenient.
When treating fleas, we usually want a product to use on our pets and perhaps also something to kill fleas in the environment if they have gotten a little out of control. There are many different types of flea medications, most utilising top-spot technology, which allows the flea-killing ingredient to be stored on your pet’s skin. The continuous protection this provides helps to break the flea lifecycle and ensure your pet is comfortable year-round. Oral flea medications act slightly differently and can be a little faster at killing those pesky parasites, we also think they are safer if your children like to give your cat a cuddle right at that moment you put a top-spot on.
For pets that live along the east coast of Australia, tick control over the warmer months is something to consider. Cats are usually pretty effective at grooming out any attached ticks. However, because no tick preventative is 100% safe, even with a tick preventative you will need to tick search daily, particularly around the head where cats may not be able to remove their own ticks. Even indoor cats can occasionally get ticks if they are carried into the house on our clothing, beach towels or shoes. Frontline Spray is the only safe flea and tick preventative for use in cats.
All the companies we support invest in research and development to make sure they stay one step ahead of all those tenacious parasites. Your pet’s safety is paramount, so using a registered product that has been safety tested ensures you and your family stay safe.
