Ticks and fleas can cause a lot of discomfort and can even make your cat sick if they get bitten. This is why it is so important to ensure that your cat is always protected against these pests.

In this article, we will discuss the different methods and treatments that are available, as well as what the best flea and tick treatment could be, for cats.

Types of Flea and Tick Treatment for Cats

There are a variety of tick and flea treatment methods that can ensure your cat remains safe. Deciding between the different products depends on which method they respond to best. The last thing you want is to constantly struggle with your cat when trying to give them their treatment. It’s important to note that there are different products for kittens that have been designed to contain a lighter dose. One should also take note of the recommended dosage frequency as every product has a different effective time period. It could also be helpful to regularly groom your cat to check for ticks and fleas.

  • Spot On: There are many brands that have created a spot treatment for the prevention of fleas and ticks. They typically consist of a little tab that contains a dose of liquid. This liquid is then applied on your cat's back, between the shoulders. It is then absorbed into the skin and spreads throughout the body to provide complete protection. Some even protect not only against ticks and fleas, but against worms
  • Spray: A spray can be used if your cat doesn't mind getting a bit wet. It is important to ensure that you spray your cat's entire body and then rub the spray into his/her coat, as the formula must come into contact with the skin.
  • Collar: If your cat doesn't mind wearing a collar this can be a great option. Flea and tick collars work by releasing chemicals that spread throughout your cat's body by way of the oils in his/her skin. The Seresto collar is an example of this product, which provides protection for up to 8 months.
  • Ultrasonic: An ultrasonic tick and flea repeller is probably one of the easiest ways to provide your cat with protection. This device works by emitting ultrasonic pulses that do not affect pets or humans but repels pests such as ticks and fleas. It has a 2,5-meter operating range and is attached to a collar that is worn by your cat. The device is rechargeable and should be worn at all times.
