Fleas are tiny insects that live on cats, dogs and in your home.
They cause itchy skin, spread disease and can bite humans too. Fleas feed on blood and can cause young, small, old or poorly pets to become very unwell with blood loss (anaemia). Some cats are allergic to flea bites (flea allergic dermatitis).
Think your cat has fleas? You will need to treat all your pets and also your home. Your vet will be able to advise which products to use. It’s easy to prevent fleas by using a veterinary flea product regularly.
