Fleas can give you a hard time to your pets and yourself, you don’t know when you are hit with a bunch of pesky fleas, so why not introduce you to our way of getting rid of them right now.
The most common type of flea is the ‘’cat flea’’, but despite its name the cat flea affects both dogs and cats. To repel the fleas from your house pet, there is a new way of getting rid of them.
Unlike other choices, oral flea protection works inside out, which means that it effectively creates a barrier that protects against both fleas and ticks using your pet’s blood flow to spread out toward the animal’s skin.
While some topical flea and tick treatments could leave areas of your pet unprotected from a sudden flea infestation, oral medications provide protection all around the body for your pet. Do not forget to consult your vet before choosing.
OK, but is it safe?
The protection lasts a longer time, but they are still insecticides so they should be administered accordingly. Pet owners who used this type treatment report that they can see dead fleas falling off of their animals within half an hour.
We have two types of medication — one prevents the fleas and one has an immediate effect. Of course that there are doubts about the oral treatment but compared to the one used on the skin, the oral flea treatment for cats or dogs might be superior because it’s distributed throughout the entire body and fur.
My cat doesn’t want the pill
To make sure that your pet will ingest this type pill, you should place it directly in his or her mouth or hide it in the food. As the pill is usually odorless and tasteless, your cat will probably not detect it, and in most cases, dogs are completely clueless if you place the pill inside their favorite treat.
Even easier, you cut the pill into four pieces, put it in the cat’s food and give it a good mix, you might have fewer issues. But keep in mind that not all felines are made the same, and they do have an unusually strong sense of smell, so they might still not want to eat it on their own.
Why is it good?
If you love animals as much as we do and you are in possession of a few cats or dogs, you might consider your pets free from the possibility of getting flea from other animals.
To keep their health under control, try to administrate them a treatment for prevention rather than one for stopping the fleas when they are already multiplying. Also, oral treatment is easy to use and harmful if used correctly.
