Flea treatment for cats and dogs at Vet4life
When it comes to parasites with cats and dogs, it’s important you treat your pet regularly – to help prevent diseases spreading and discomfort for your pet.
Ignoring the problem will only make things worse, and may end up affecting not just your pet, but your home too.
Pets can catch fleas, ticks, scabies and ear mites simply through being near other pets, or by passing through high risk areas when out and about, such as the long grass out in the countryside.
How to tell if your cat or dog has fleas:
- Bite marks
- Excessive scratching
- Hair loss
- Itchy bite marks on your own skin
- Tiny black specks in pet’s fur
- Scurrying insects on carpets, furniture or clothes
Studies show that for every 10 fleas on your pet, there could be as many as 100 eggs in your home. And because eggs can lie dormant for months, you need to treat your cat or dog for fleas all year round

A flea infection can also act as a gateway to other, more serious infections. Flea larvae can become infected with tapeworm eggs, which your pet can easily ingest. That’s why regular worming is just as important as routine flea treatment. With so many worming products to choose from, it can be difficult to decide on an appropriate course of worm treatment for your cat or dog. Vet4life can advise on a solution that’s as safe, as it is effective.
