Flea Control & treatment
An effective and easy method to control flea problems is to treat your cat or dog on a preventive basis. Such treatments prevent fleas from multiplying themselves without any disturbances. Not treating could lead to their re-occurrence in great numbers and everywhere in the house. Therefore, flea prevention treatments should be given before any flea infestation occurs. Additional use of a flea trap will show if fleas are present in the surroundings.
If fleas are found on your cat or dog, it is important you start a flea treatment of the animal, immediately. Please note that not all products are suitable for both cats and dogs or puppies/kittens. Ask your vet about your options. In addition to a specific treatment of the pet, it is important to control the fleas in the surroundings. This may be done as follows:
- Frequent and careful vacuum cleaning in all places, related to the pet, including couch cushions, cars, cellars, etc., preferably on a daily basis for 30 days
- Washing the pet’s bed, blankets, etc. at min. 140°F/60°C
- Placing one or more flea traps in your home
When your cat or dog is treated, the flea that jumps on your animal will die relatively fast. However, up to 3 months may pass, before the infestation is under control. In severe cases, this period may be prolonged.
If you wish to maximize flea prevention, you should use an effective flea trap to eliminate the presence in your home. Buy myFleaTrap® here – our safe and innovative flea trap.
