It’s important for cat owners to be aware of common health problems and how to treat them, this includes worms and fleas. Our in-house specialists can offer you advice on how to best way treat your cat as well as providing specialist products at discounted prices. Our wormers and flea treatments for cats are top of the range and available to you at an affordable price.
There are around eight different types of intestinal worms which can affect your cat, including the renowned roundworm and tapeworm. Luckily both these conditions are easily treatable when managed and maintained throughout your pets’ lifetime. At Vet Medic, we provide a range of wormers that aggressively target specific types of worms, or alternatively, we offer various dual wormers that effectively target multiple types of worms that your cat may be carrying. The average cat needs worming around four times a year, although if your cat likes hunting mice, you may need to do it a little bit more regularly to ensure effective treatment.
Unlike puppies, kittens aren’t usually born with worms meaning instant treatment isn’t normally necessary. For kittens, worming treatment usually starts at around 6 weeks of age and is carried out every 2-4 weeks until your kitten is 3 months of age. After your kitten reaches 12 weeks old, it can then be treated as usual 4 times a year or a little bit more regularly depending on lifestyle. We stock a varied range of worming treatment from the leading brands and only provide products of the highest quality that are proven to work.
Depending on the product you pick, most cats need to receive flea treatment every 4-6 weeks. Cats that spend a lot of time outside are more likely to pick up fleas, and it’s important to treat your house as well as your pet to ensure the flea eggs aren’t embedded in your furniture. It is recommended to use tweezers and flea combs on kittens under the age of 6 weeks old, after that certain types of treatments can be used. After the age of 8 weeks old, the majority of treatments will be suitable for your cat and you can have a preference for which product you wish to use.
