Parasites Preventative?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got a letter from my Vet hospital today ( under new management ), that all feline indoors and outdoors should have a yearly round parasites preventative measure, which can be done by applying a broad spectrum preventative applied to the back of the neck once a month, which protects the cat and humans as well. This is new to me and I'm not sure this is just a way of drumming up business since the hospital is under new management, what do you guys think?, I have one indoor cat, thanks.

I'd be asking a lot of questions. Name of product for starters and then I'd research like crazy.

If you are in a part of the country that is warm year around then it makes sense to treat your cats and dogs for fleas year around.

I will no doubt take a break from flea treatments from November till March since I have those lovely winters.

I will definitely ask the Vet, My cat is two years old now and so far he's doing quite well, thanks for the advice.

They're probably talking about Revolution or Frontline. My cats are, and have always been, indoor only, and I never had them on anything like that.

Then I found out yesterday they both have fleas- probably got them from having the windows open. They are now on Revolution, and I wish I had done it before now, because trying to get rid of fleas is an ordeal that I wouldn't wish on anyone!

If fleas are a problem in your area, summer and fall (until it freezes) are the worst time of year for them.

I will gladly pay for monthly meds to avoid this in the future- it's the very definition of no fun (not to mention, pretty gross!).

Ask your vet for more info- and check in to how big a problem fleas are in your area.
