Worm & flea treatment for cats is so important for the long term health and wellbeing of your family & pet that you routinely use proven, preventative treatments against the most common parasites throughout your pet’s life. Remember that prevention is much easier and cost-effective than cure.

Flea Treatment for Cats

Fleas are one of the most common external parasites in pets and they cause a lot of skin problems for cats that lead to irritation. Fleas are continually shedding eggs in your home and can lead to a home flea infestation. Flea bites to you and your family can be costly and complicated to treat. Adult fleas stay in their cocoon for up to 6 months before it emerges, which makes them harder to see - this is another reason why flea treatment for cats is so important. 

Fleas are small and sometimes hard to spot. They will make your cat miserable and once your cat has fleas, they can bite every 5 minutes leaving your cat itchy and uncomfortable. You only need to bring one flea inside your home to start an infestation. It only takes one female flea to produce enough eggs to quickly escalate the problem in your home.

Fleas live on a variety of animals such rabbits and hedgehogs, as well as cats and dogs. When your pet is outdoors, fleas from the eggs left behind by other animals can jump on your pet. Once on your pet, they feed on his or her blood and start laying eggs.

Treating your pet with our vet recommended treatment plan will effectively kill fleas and disrupt their life cycle.


Worm Treatment for Cats

There are many worms that can infect your pets, and they can pose a threat to your family. Worms that target pets include roundworms, hookworms, lungworms, and tapeworms, and they are prolific across the United Kingdom. Some worms can produce more than 100,000 eggs per day, which are then passed in the pet’s faeces and spread throughout their living environment. These are particularly unpleasant for your cat and require treatment. 

Your family can accidentally ingest worm eggs that have been passed through your pet’s faeces. The eggs can then hatch in your intestinal tract, and the worms can travel to various tissues in the body, including the eyes and brain, potentially causing serious infections.

Worms are a year-round threat and the only way to keep your pet and family safe is through proactive actions to get the best products. Lungworm, which is passed on by slugs and snails, is potentially fatal and many over the counter products do not tackle this worrying parasite.

Please be aware that many products available elsewhere other than sold at Leadon Vale Veterinary Centre may be ineffective at treating all the species of worms and fleas your cat could get. Tablets, liquids, granules and spot-ons are some of the ranges of worming treatments available.


Hazards in our local community

Cats can pick up fleas, worms and other parasites at parks local to Leadon Vale Veterinary Centre.

During the warmer months of April through October, parks are a breeding ground for parasites. When you own a cat, you do not want to deny it the chance to make friends, and you certainly do not want to limit the time it spends outdoors. Nevertheless, if all the other pets are scratching, itching, and playing with slugs and other parasite carriers, what should the pet owner do?

In addition to saving money on veterinary costs, you will give your pet a better quality of life.
