Fleas and worms

These unpleasant visitors are an all too frequent occurrence and can occur year round.

Fleas

Fleas spend a large portion of time in your house and lay their eggs in the environment, as well as on your pet, they will go all over your house, even into rooms the pet doesn’t go into. Cat fleas can bite humans and dogs.

Fleas can cause an allergic reaction in cats (and humans) causing the pet to lick or scratch itself and do a lot of damage to it’s skin.

Fleas can be picked up from other cats or dogs or wildlife.

Worms

Worms can be picked up from the environment from other cat’s faeces. Cats that hunt rats or mice can pick up tapeworms from them.

Roundworm can be passed to humans, often children and can occasionally even cause blindness.
