fleas on my cat

I’ve seen a few fleas on my cat and I know I have to treat the problem before it gets worse. I’m thinking the once a year flea granules would be a good choice since I hate to spray but I just want to make sure it’s safe for her. Also, do you recommend flea traps? We’re going to the vet today to make sure she’s properly treated too.

It’s fairly common to have a cat which gets some fleas so don’t feel too badly. The key is to take care of the problem once it starts so the pet doesn’t have to suffer needlessly. The ONCE A YEAR FLEA TREATMENT is a great way to treat the house. It’s easy to apply, safe to the people and pets inside and lasts a long time. When done properly, treatments should last a year or more.

FLEA TRAPS should be installed if you’re seeing fleas throughout the house which you didn’t mention. As explained in our FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE, the pupae of the flea cannot be killed so seeing some following the treatment is to be expected. A few fleas would be tolerable but if you think there are too many around, set out some traps to help minimize this last phase of the problem. Usually within a few weeks the average problem is handled and no longer active.
