Cat owners who raise cats in a strict indoors-only lifestyle might be lax when administering medications that prevent fleas or ticks. It is vital to know that it is still common for cats to contract infections of the parasitic kind despite staying indoors.

Ectoparasites (such as mites, fleas, ticks, etc.) can find their way to pets and live on their skin, causing itchiness and irritation. Cats show signs of an infestation when areas of the body near their tail keep feeling itchy. A veterinarian can go through the fur with a flea comb for a better diagnosis of the situation. Skin scraping tests would be conducted to check for Demodex and other mites. Experts would recommend a constant application of products specifically made to prevent fleas, ticks, and other parasites. These products would usually be the first step in solving the problem.

Any skin and/or hair coat issue exhibited by your pet should warrant an appointment with an animal hospital Burlington, ON.
