Even with the lack of sunshine so far this year, fleas are starting to be more of a problem for many of our furry friends.
Although there are many ‘over-the-counter’ products available without a prescription which claim to treat fleas, many of these act as flea repellents only, or are so short-acting, the treated animal becomes re-infested quickly, with new fleas hatching out
from the environment. Some products are even dangerous for cats if ingested.Older flea products which have been ‘demoted’ from POMV (prescription-only medication- veterinarian) also seem to be losing their efficacy. This is not unexpected; the fleas will evolve to develop resistance to the products over time.
There are quite a few novel flea treatments now available, but they all require a vet to prescribe them. As many cats are so difficult to get in the carrier and off to the vets, even just for a check up for flea provisions, Vet2Cat is running a special summertime offer.
To weigh and assess your cat so a POMV flea product can be safely prescribed, we are doing a reduced cost ‘flea’ consultation of £35 for the first cat seen at one household. If there are more than one, any additional cats will be £20 per cat.
The normal call-out fees apply – see under https://vet2cat.co.uk/fees/
If your cat is suffering from skin disease as a result of fleas and needs additional treatment for this, the standard consultation prices will apply.
