When it comes to flea and tick medicine for dogs and cats, your veterinarian will almost certainly recommend preventive care. It’s so much easier to prevent a flea or tick infestation than to eliminate one that already exists—and prevention is far safer for your pet. Preventive flea and tick medicine should be given regularly according to instructions to help protect your pet from the diseases and discomfort that come from an infestation.
If your pet already has an infestation, your vet may recommend a variety of treatments, including flea combing and a simple bath or even a medicated bath. Petco has cat grooming and bathing tools to help make washing your cat a more comfortable experience. Your veterinarian will also recommend a tick and flea medicine for your cat to kill any existing fleas and ticks and prevent future outbreaks.
