Roundworms are passed onto a kitten from their mother and we recommend monthly worming treatment until your kitten is six months of age. After six months of age, worming will depend on certain factors such as outdoor access, hunting and the presence of children or other vulnerable people within the household. We recommend using a product that protects against Roundworms, as well as Hookworms and Tapeworms which are common. Your cat can become infested by eating a flea containing tapeworm stages or hunting mice, birds, etc.
The most commonly found flea on cats and dogs is the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis). Fleas may cause your cat to scratch, lick or bite, or have unusual red patches of skin, signs of hair loss or signs of flea dirt. Some animals may suffer from flea allergic dermatitis (FAD). We recommend using a product that protects against key stages of the flea lifecycle and also protects against ticks too! We sell products that treat fleas and ticks – please ask reception for more details.
We periodically review the parasitic products needed to match the parasite risk, and give the best cover for your cat at any one time. Our staff will advise you on a safe and effective product.
