We might be staying at home during lockdown to play our part in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic but that’s not the case for many of our feline companions.
Unless they’re staying home because someone in their household is unwell, they are probably enjoying the arrival of Spring and spending time in the great outdoors. This means that they’re more likely to pick up fleas and other parasites so it’s vital to stick to a strict parasite control regime to protect them – and to protect your family.
Fleas can be a serious problem. They cause discomfort and can spread disease and tapeworms. Some cats become allergic to flea saliva and develop a condition called Flea Allergy Dermatitis which can cause severe itching, pain and secondary bacterial infection. In kittens, heavy flea infestations can cause severe blood loss and life-threatening anaemia. And, as if this wasn’t enough, fleas can infest your home – the last thing you want, particularly with the children off school.
We know that protecting our cats from parasites is one of the most important preventative health care steps we can take as responsible owners, particularly during this period of lock down which requires vets to carry out emergency treatment only. Wouldn’t it be great if we could protect them, while also helping the UK’s leading veterinary charity? The good news is, we can!
