Flea, Tick and Worming Treatment for Cats
Fleas – Fleas are tiny external parasites that feed on the blood of mammals and birds. These wingless pests hop onto your pet, bite them and cause irritation, itching, red skin, and allergies. In severe cases, it may even lead to worm infestations.
Ticks – Ticks are bloodsucking parasites that can be found on the skin or coat of your cats. There are several types of ticks that spread diseases e.g., paralysis ticks can cause one of the most dangerous diseases, i.e., tick paralysis that may result in complete paralysis, heart failure, and pneumonia, if left untreated.
Symptoms of a paralysis tick bite include weakness, loss of coordination, coughing, change in volume or pitch, trouble breathing, vomiting, or loss of appetite.
Heartworm – Heartworm enters a cat’s body as larvae through an infected mosquito bite. They travel to the heart and lungs and cause severe organ damage. Though heartworm disease is less common in cats than in dogs, there are still chances of infection; with no direct treatment, the only way to protect your cat is to prevent them from getting infected.
Intestinal Worms – The most commonly found intestinal worms in cats include hookworm, roundworm, and tapeworm. These worms are ingested with the infected fleas and then make their way into the intestines. These worms can make your cat severely ill causing symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, or anemia. Deworming treatments for cats are available in tablet and topical forms.
