Flea Treatment for Your Pets!

Flea Treatment for Your Pets!

Fleas are a common problem for pets, and they can be challenging to get rid of. If your cat has fleas, it is essential to immediately prevent them from spreading to other pets or people in your household.

There are several different ways to remove fleas from your pets. In this video, we will use a flea comb and diatomaceous earth food grade to remove the fleas from our new foster kittens.

  • Flea combs: Flea combs are a simple and effective way to remove fleas from your cat’s fur. To use a flea comb, brush it through your cat’s fur in the direction of hair growth. Be sure to pay special attention to areas where fleas are likely to congregate, such as the base of the tail, behind the ears, and around the neck. Drop the fleas into a cup of water mixed with Dawn dish detergent to kill them.
  • Diatomaceous earth food grade: Diatomaceous earth comes in contact with a flea or tick, and the shard-like components scratch and scrape their exoskeleton, damaging it. The absorbent properties of the material then absorb oils and fats from the insect’s skin, leading to a desiccation or drying and eventual death of the pests.

In addition to removing fleas from your pets, treating your home for fleas is essential. Fleas can live in carpets, furniture, and bedding, so it’s important to vacuum and clean your home thoroughly to remove any fleas or flea eggs. We have attached a link to a video explaining how to clean your house.

If you are having trouble removing fleas from your pet or have a severe flea infestation, you should talk to your veterinarian and exterminator. Your veterinarian can recommend the best treatment for your pet and help you eliminate fleas. Your exterminator can suggest animal friendly ways to eradicate the fleas.

Here are some additional tips for removing fleas from cats:

  • Start by bathing your cat with Dawn dish detergent or flea shampoo or dip. This will kill any adult fleas on your cat’s body.
  • Use a flea comb to remove any remaining fleas or flea eggs from your cat’s fur. Be sure to comb your cat’s fur in the direction of hair growth.
  • Treat your cat with flea medication. This will help to prevent new fleas from infesting your cat.
  • Clean your home thoroughly to remove any fleas or flea eggs. Be sure to vacuum carpets and furniture and wash bedding in hot water.
  • Consider using a flea spray or fogger to treat your home for fleas.

If you have any questions or concerns about removing fleas from cats, please talk to your veterinarian.
