Cat Parasites Prevention


Fleas love the tropical climate of Florida, and Hillsborough County actually leads the nation in the flea population. We have more fleas than any other county in the entire nation! Because cats groom themselves with their own tongue, they tend to digest fleas and flea eggs that go on to produce intestinal worms. Cat parasites prevention is a vital part of maintaining your cat’s health.

Central and South Florida are infested year-round with mosquitoes due to the warm, humid climate. Mosquitoes are known carriers of heartworms, a life-threatening disease for cats.  Several parasites can affect cats including:

  • Hook Worms
  • Round Worms
  • Tape Worms
  • Ear Mites
  • Heart Worms
  • Fleas

Fortunately, advances in parasite control medication, flea preventative, can help prevent flea and other parasite infestations. The cost of the treatment is low; the application is easy and will help ensure your pet’s wellness for several weeks at a time. There are two products that we recommend over all the others for Flea Control and the prevention of other intestinal parasites and ear mites.  Fortunately, advances in parasite control medications, flea and parasite preventatives, can aid in the elimination of flea and other parasite infestations.

  • Revolution for Cats
  • Advantage Multi for Cats

(Both products are available in regular and large cat sizes)

We can even have the flea prevention shipped directly to your home. Contact us at (813) 684-PETS (7387) to speak with a member of our staff. It’s that easy!
