i have discovered a flea or two or both of the cats we have, last night there was one on our bed...... Can anyone advise the best course of action, first time they have had them, about 3 years old !!!
Is that the bob martin stuff yea?
I rang the vets and they suggested i buy Acclaim Flea Spray 500ML for £21 along with some frontline.....
Sorry, yeah, that was in relation to the Bob Martin stuff.
When I was looking at stuff for our two cats the stories ranged from not working at all to having a really bad effect on the animal it was used on.
This is not really much to go panicking about. It's no big deal, really.
IMHO, just give the cats a good inspection and if you see any fleas on the cats, then just crush them between your thumb nails. You'd be very lucky(?) if you get more than 10 or so on the cat and they will mostly be around the cat's ears, particularly on the edges of the ears. A few days of inspecting and doing this and 'Job Done'.
You have to ask yourself, "Where are they getting them from?"
A. Outside sources, such as other cats or other furry animals with fleas.
So you either have to keep your cat inside, which is against the nature of cats, or keep inspecting. Hopefully, on this occasion the infestation was obtained from a 'one off event'.
Agree about that Bob Martin stuff. Tried and failed for me.
Frontline is a lot cheaper online, I've just bought x2 packs of 6 for £34 online. VetUK I think.
