How to choose a perfect Cat Flea and Tick Control!
There are many Flea and Tick Control options for cats available online through online veterinarians and online pet pharmacies, yet which one to choose? All of the flea and tick control options for cats promise to be safe and to get rid of fleas on cats too… However, if you really want to know which Flea and Tick Control option is suitable for your cat, you must first compare all pluses and minuses of the Flea and Tick control product.
Here we compare the three major Flea and Tick Control options for cats. Cat Flea and Tick Sprays, Cat Flea and Tick Drops, and Cat flea and tick Powders:
- Cat Flea and Tick Powders.
Cat Flea and Tick Powders are what a lot of people still use for cats today to prevent fleas and ticks on cats.
Pluses of Flea and Tick Powders for Cats:
Flea and Tick Powders for cats are always on the outside of the cat’s fur and there to prevent any fleas from crawling up on them.
Minuses of Flea and Tick Powders for Cats:
Since the Flea and Tick Powder is on the outside of the Cats fur, every time you pet your cat, the Flea and Tick Powder will also come onto you. And since Flea and Tick poisons are poisonous enough to keep fleas and ticks away, even in little doses, it is a poison and you don’t want to come into much contact with it, do you?
Btw. Flea and Tick Powders also fly up into your face when applying them to your cat or cats, but that is once or twice in a week, so not so bad… From different sources, I also hear that sometimes flea and tick powders only prevent fleas and not always ticks.
- Cat Flea and Tick Sprays
Cat flea and tick sprays are sold almost worldwide and can provide your cat with good flea and tick control, at least for a while….
Pluses of Flea and Tick Sprays for Cats:
The Flea and Tick Sprays for cats are inexpensive and sold almost everywhere.
Minuses of Flea and Tick Sprays for Cats:
The cats can very easily lick it off their fur, as they often do. It could also be a problem to put it on since cats hate any sprays or water and will, in most cases, be resistant against it. As for the applying of it, you would have to apply it all over your cat’s furry coat and body too, because if you don’t the fleas and ticks will still climb up on your cat to suck your cat’s blood where there is no tick spray for cats!
- Cat Flea and Tick Drops:
Loads of American, and also European, citizens use Flea and Tick Control Drops for Cats. These Flea and Tick Drops go directly into the skin and also prevent fleas and ticks from sucking your cat’s blood.
Pluses of Flea and Tick Drops for Cats are:
The Flea and Tick Drops for Cats go directly into the cat’s skin and don’t linger around on your cat’s fur. They go straight into your cat’s blood system, and if any nasty little flea bites your cat, he will get poisoned no matter where he bites. When the Flea and Tick Drops go into your cat’s skin, you also avoid having to touch them or come in contact with them at all.
You mostly have to apply the flea and tick control for cats onto the back of her neck, where it is impossible for her to lick it off again. It is easy and fast to do too and requires only for you to hold your cat still for a moment or so.
Minuses of Flea and Tick Drops for Cats are:
It often costs more than other options do. But you only have to apply it once a month to your cat.
