Preventing our cat from the onslaught of fleas and parasites is fundamental attention to trying to keep the cat’s health high. The presence of small insects on its hair could, in fact, affect its serenity, creating itching and other discomforts, and it could also put a strain on its physical condition, considering that the bites and bites of these insects can lead cutaneous allegories.
To try to eliminate fleas in the best way, it is first necessary to know these annoying animals well. Usually, a flea lives up to 15 days: at this juncture, it can cause serious damage to the cat, especially if it is allergic to the presence and bite of fleas.
In order to eliminate fleas and combat their presence, the first thing to do is to take our pet’s friends to the nearest trusted veterinarian, who can recommend the most suitable product, and find the best products to meet the needs of the health of the cat. There are also some devices, such as flea collars, which can guarantee the cat better management of the post disinfestation phase.
For situations that appear more serious, such as allergic reactions to flea bites, it is better to proceed with something more invasive, such as medicated baths, to be repeated as often as recommended by the veterinarian, based on the seriousness of the context. If the situation is not so serious, you can use a special shampoo to properly clean the cat’s body.
For complete protection, you can also opt for powder preparations that you can spread in the area of the kennel, or drops or sprays to spray even in carpets and other areas frequented by your cat friend.
Abandoned cat: here’s what to do!
Summer is the beautiful season by definition but, unfortunately, a little less beautiful for our friend’s dogs and cats. It is precise during the summer months that the phenomenon of abandonment “explodes” , exposing four-legged friends to serious risks to their health. But what to do if you find an abandoned cat?
The first thing you need to do is act quickly. Before the cat gets into serious trouble, try to approach it calmly, reassuring it with gentle movements, and thus gaining its trust. If you are in dangerous places (eg in the middle of the road) try to move it away and bring it back to a more peaceful place. To overcome resistance, you can try to offer him water or food. At this point, try also to understand if the cat has a medal or other symbol of recognition, and in any case advise the local police, the ASL or the ENPA (National Animal Protection Agency), so that those of competence can approach and recover it. In the case of injured animals, contact the ASL Veterinary Service of territorial jurisdiction, or a veterinary surgeon who has the obligation – by law – to assist him.
