Cats get ticks too!
Though there is little evidence that cats develop Lyme disease, they can get other severe tick-borne diseases such as Tularemia, Haemobartonellosis, and Ehrlichia.
Also, a tick that feeds on a cat then drops off, can lay hundreds of eggs to create the next generation so killing them is important.
Recently a new product has come on the market for cats to prevent ticks and fleas. Called Bravecto it has to be applied every 2 months to prevent ticks attaching. We can special order this product if your cat goes outside.
If you choose not to use a tick control product on your cat, you should check them all over daily if they have been outside or in contact with any other animals. If you find any attached ticks, remove them with a device such as a Tick Twister.
