cat problemsWe all love critters – but there are some creatures that are irritating and downright dangerous for our cats. You might think your cat isn’t at risk…and you may be unpleasantly surprised. Read on…

Fleas aren’t just for outdoor cats. Fleas can also instigate a plethora of problems when they get a free ride into your house. As you mow or do yard work, a small flea can latch onto your clothing and hop onto your indoor cat. So even if your cat never ventures into your yard, he still needs preventive treatments to be protected.

If your cat’s allergic to fleas, you may notice a slight dermatitis, but many cats don’t show any physical symptoms at all. Before you know it, you could have a flea infestation in your carpet, furniture and furnishings.

Timely prevention could save your cat’s life. Did you know that cats can get roundworms from ingesting the common house fly? And all it takes for your cat to contract heartworms is a bite from an infected mosquito? A necropsy performed on a young indoor cat at Town N Country recently revealed heartworms. His untimely death shocked and saddened his family.

Your cat needs routine deworming, heartworm and flea prevention. Unfortunately there’s no known treatment should your cat contract heartworms, so prevention’s key. We can help you treat your cat with the proper dosage and keep her safe from parasites.

What’s a pet owner to do? The recommended treatment, Revolution®, prevents most intestinal parasites, ear mites, fleas and ticks. Once a month, Revolution® is usually applied between your cat’s shoulder blades. It’s simple, effective and the most economical approach.

Collars and other treatments that you can purchase at retail outlets may be too strong or completely ineffective for your pet.
