At Us with pets you will find a large selection of flea and tick products for cats. Buy e.g. flea combs, flea and tick treatment in a pipette or spray, tick pliers and other preventive and treatment means. Your cat should always be treated preventively, but should be checked regularly for ticks, especially in the summer, as no tick agent is 100% preventive.

Be careful to always choose a tick and flea product that is intended for cats, as products for dogs can be decidedly fatal for cats.

Prevention of fleas and ticks

Preventive treatment against fleas and ticks are the same and are available in different variants, such as Frontline Combo Vet for cats, Advantage for cats, garlic drops and Tea tree shampoo. What you choose is a matter of taste, and the effect can also differ from cat to cat.

Most products prevent 100% against fleas when used according to the instructions, but none of the products prevent 100% against ticks, and therefore you should always have tick tweezers lying around to remove unwanted guests from your cat - just as you should check on a daily basis during the summer months your cat for ticks if it stays outside during the day. This is because ticks can transmit a number of dangerous diseases to your cat, such as Lyme disease.

How do I remove a tick from my cat?

Even if your cat has been treated with preventive tick medication, it may well bring home a single tick every now and then. It is important to remove the tick as soon as possible, as the risk of infection increases significantly when the tick has been on the cat for more than 24 hours.

Ticks usually sit where the skin is thinnest. In cats it is around the ears, on the belly and in the groin and armpits. However, ticks can in principle sit anywhere.

There are many home remedies for removing ticks; both turning, burning and oiling them. You should stay away from all of this, as recent studies show that these measures increase the likelihood that the tick will vomit before letting go, which significantly increases the risk of infection. Preferably use tick pliers to remove the tick in the most appropriate way.

If you don't have tick pliers, grab around the tick with your nails as close to the cat's skin as possible WITHOUT squeezing the tick's stomach. Pull the tick out in one smooth motion.

In the days after you remove the tick, keep an eye on the bite area. The area may easily be red and swollen, but it is important that both redness and swelling go away. It must not increase, and the cat must not show symptoms of illness, such as

  • Increased fatigue
  • Lack of appetite
  • Fever

In that case, you should consult a vet and mention the tick bite.
