I have a 3 year old cat who has previously been allowed to be an indoor cat due to the housing situation (a lot of traffic, close to the road etc) but now I have moved so she can start going out.
The only thing is that I’m worried she’ll get a lot of ticks this summer, I think they’re so incredibly disgusting!
Is there any way to avoid them, other than to keep her inside?
So nice that your cat now has the opportunity to go out!
It is important to protect your cat from ticks and there are different types of tick prevention drugs to choose from.
You can either use over-the-counter spot-on preparations that you drip into the cat’s neck or you can buy tick collars.
The spot-on preparations usually have an effect for 4 weeks, but since last year there is a prescription preparation that is effective for 12 weeks.
Note: Make sure you buy medicines that are intended for cats as there are tick prevention medicines for dogs that are very toxic to cats.
