Cat Flea & Tick Treatment and Prevention FAQs 

How do I choose the right flea and tick treatment for my cat or kitten?

Flea and tick treatment for cats will help prevent the spread of both parasites, so your feline can live a life free from itchiness, soreness and broken skin. When it comes to choosing the best cat flea treatment, it’s essential to consider the age of your pet. If they are a kitten, select a solution that’s specifically designed for young felines. Choose a spot-on solution from our collection containing trusted active ingredients that simultaneously help control intestinal worms and ear mites while preventing lice and heartworm disease. We also offer solutions that can be used on kittens from 8 weeks of age and are safe to use on breeding, pregnant or lactating animals.

If you have an older cat weighing more than four kilograms, select a cat flea treatment with a rapid onset of action and kill re-infestations with newly acquired adult fleas. These solutions also help prevent the development of flea eggs, larvae and pupae produced by adult fleas for up to six weeks post-treatment. 

What is the  best cat flea treatment? What are the different types of flea and tick treatments available?

When it comes to the best cat flea treatment, there are several options available that are widely recommended by veterinarians and cat owners. It's important to consult with your veterinarian to determine the most suitable treatment for your cat based on their specific needs and health condition. However, here are a few commonly used and effective cat flea treatments:

  • Topical spot-on treatments: These are typically applied to the back of the cat's neck and contain insecticides that kill fleas upon contact. Popular brands include Advantage, Advocate, and Revolution. There are also stronger flea treatments, such as Bravecto Plus or Revolution Plus, which offer extended protection and treat multiple parasites in addition to fleas.
  • Oral medications: Some oral medications come in the form of tablets or chews that can be given to your cat. These medications work systemically, meaning they circulate in your cat's bloodstream to kill fleas when they bite. Examples of oral flea treatments for cats include Capstar.
  • Flea collars: Flea collars are worn around the cat's neck and continuously release chemicals that repel and kill fleas. Seresto is a commonly recommended flea collar for cats.
    Remember, flea control is an ongoing process, and it's important to treat both your cat and their environment to effectively eliminate fleas. Regular grooming, vacuuming, and washing your cat's bedding are additional measures that can help in managing flea infestations.

What do vets recommend for cat flea and tick control?

Most vets recommend solutions that prevent a range of health issues instead of just one. That’s why all of our flea and tick treatment for cats also help prevent lice, hookworms, roundworms, ear mites and heartworm disease. We only stock solutions from trusted suppliers. Most of their products offer protection for more than 30 days with just one application.  

How often do cats need flea and tick treatment?

When it comes to flea and tick treatments for cats, prevention is key. That’s why most vets recommend you apply some form of topical treatment at least once a month. While all-year-round protection is ideal — even during winter — ticks are more active in the hotter months, so even indoor felines need cat flea treatments.
