Pests That Feed on Your Pets

The soft, warm fur of dogs and cats provides the perfect environment for fleas and ticks. These insects feed on your pet’s blood and can cause health problems ranging from allergic reactions to serious tick-borne illnesses.A cat who scratches, chews their skin, or seems restless could mean that they have fleas. You can ease their itch (and protect yourself) by knowing how to spot and destroy fleas on your pet and in your house.

Flea Check

Before you spend money on flea treatments, find out if these pests have settled on your cat:

  • Watch for any signs of movement in their fur. If you spot tiny bugs bouncing off their coat, it’s time to fight fleas.
  • Comb your cat with a fine-toothed metal flea comb from head to tail several times a day. This will skim off adult fleas and their eggs and ease their itching.
  • Then, dip the comb in a mixture of warm to hot water and liquid dish detergent to kill the fleas.
