Cat Fleas

Cat Flea Control

Fleas are a huge source of annoyance to your cat. While seasons will affect their activity, it is possible with our warm temperatures year-round for them to pick up fleas during most of the year. It is especially true because these insects can thrive in our homes.

How do I know if my cat has fleas?


Constant biting, scratching, chewing, or licking is a sure sign that there may be pesky little insects making your cat’s life miserable. Depending on the length and colour of your cat’s coat, you may even be able to see the tiny reddish-brown bugs that can jump like they are using a trampoline.

Do fleas harm cats?


Fleas are more annoying than actually harmful. They can pose a variety of health issues such as; skin irritation, itchiness, scratching, skin infections and rashes. At Crossroads Animal Hospital, we have a few different products available that your veterinarian can recommend for the prevention and treatment of fleas.
