We use Frontline summer and winter because with central heating the fleas make merry even in winter. Unfortunately, if I get bitten by a flea I have a bad reaction to them and they last for weeks. Got bit in the summer and had to resort to antihistamine cream to get rid of the horrendous itch.
Also talk to your vet about getting your kitties wormed as fleas are the main cause of worm infestation in animals. Just saw in the vets the other night there's a new worm preparation which you dab on the back of their necks just like Frontline (thank goodness as some of my cats are almost impossible to give worm pills to). Can't remember what it's called but am going to the vets tomorrow evening and will let you know what it's called (you'll probably have a similar equivalent over there).
PS. Didn't realise you were over here in Dundee. I live in England now but am originally from Aberdeen
Hi thanks for that, I saw that poster in the vets this evening. Im sure its probably the same one. I know to worm them, esp since little Nismo has just come from her mum, who goes outside and so probably has worms.
Sleeves had worms when we got him I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the first poop he did after the drops!lol.
We got some drops from pets at home which worked for him so Ive already got the same one for Nismo, Ill treat them both in a few days when I know we've got rid of our pest problem...
Thats bad about your bite, I had one on my neck, Im sure it was that it was a huge red itchy lump. It went down though within hours though so I guess I was lucky!
