Waterbury Vet Recommendations for 

Flea and Tick Prevention for Your Cat

 

We believe the best way to prevent parasitic disease is to prevent fleas and ticks from contact with your pet. Fleas can transmit blood-borne disease to your cat, as well as tapeworm intestinal parasites.  Ticks cause Lyme and other infectious diseases, and your cat can be a vehicle for a tick to ride inside! 

 

There are several safe and effective products that we have to offer and we are happy to discuss all available options to decide which product is right for you and your cat. It is important that all pets in the house even indoor only cats are treated with a flea and tick preventive.

 

*Please note that over the counter flea and tick products can be very toxic and we do not recommend their use.*

All prices are subject to change periodically.
