How to keep your Cats free from Fleas?

To have a pet home can mean a responsibility especially if it is a cat or dog. Both cat and dog fur can be the target of ticks, which cause them great discomfort and often infect them with viruses that cause serious illnesses. To know more about how you can keep your cat well protected from fleas then there are some important points which you need to keep in mind.

Bathe your Cat in Lukewarm Water

You need to bathe your cat on a daily basis and make sure that you do so in lukewarm water. This will disinfect your cat’s fur to a considerable extent. You can add a bit of Dettol to the water for better results.

Apply Anti Tick Powder

Once your cat has been well dried you need to apply some anti tick powder over its fur. Apply this powder in small doses or else it could have a corrosive impact on your cat’s fur and skin in general.

Keep your Cat Indoors

Try to keep your cat from running around in the open too much. Instead make an attempt to have it move around indoors in the confines of your living room area or bedroom, as much as possible.

Get your Cat Vaccinated

Finally, if you get your pet vaccinated when it is not more than three months of age, you will be able to protect it from being attacked by fleas at any point of time. The vaccination should be done by a vet of repute.
