Took the cats to the vet today, while he was checking them over he found that one of them had fleas. We've been treating them monthly with Effipro, but their fur is so thick maybe it hasn't been getting onto the skin properly, also have just noticed that it is meant to be every 4 weeks and last month we went 5 weeks.
So, do I need to assume the house is infected? We're carpeted throughout, the cats sleep in the bottom of my wardrobe. The house is cluttered . I will do their bedding on a hot wash tomorrow.
Does combing help? The cats don't even like being brushed, let alone combed.
Hi - can I butt in and ask a flea question also please? WE've been using Frontline effectively on our 2 12yo mogs, but this year it doesn't seem to be working as well. Plus one cat seems to have become sensitive to either fleas or their dander, so is constantly itching.
We tried Advantage, but that seemed ineffcetive as well. Last treatment was 6w ago, so it's time to do it again,m plus treat house etc. WOuld Activyl be next recco ? Is this 'safe' to use on slightly older cats, one of whom has a history of kidney/urological issues ?
