The most common questions we get asked are about fleas & ticks and how to prevent them, especially with the tick population in our area rapidly rising every year. They can both be a nasty pain to deal with, but luckily there are many great products available to stop them from becoming a problem for you and your furry friend!
Fleas are small parasites that feed on the blood of an animal. There are various species of flea affecting many different animals, including humans.
How do fleas harm cats?
Flea bites are extremely itchy for our cats and can make them quite uncomfortable. Many cats with fleas will end up with a flea allergy, which only makes them more uncomfortable and can make them lose their fur. It is also possible that a large number of flea bites could cause the cat to go anemic, most commonly occurring in kittens with very heavy flea infestations.
Why is treating and preventing fleas so important?
It is important to treat and prevent flea infestations to make us and our cats more comfortable in the home, to stop the infestation as early as possible, and to help prevent spreading fleas to friends and family with pets.
Simple steps for treating fleas in your senior cat?
The best way to treat fleas in cats is with a product like Revolution, which is a once-a-month topical that you put on the back of the cat’s neck.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
