Getting Rid Of  Fleas On Cats

 If you’re a cat owner you are aware of the irritation that fleas cause cats and it causes  the cat to scratch uncontrollably. If you are not sure which remedy is the best for getting rid of fleas on cats, meet with the veterinarian because he may prescribe certain medications or shampoos that are the most effective for your cat. Here are other ways of getting rid of fleas on cats.

 Bath With Herbs

 Since fleas die when exposed to deep water, you should put the cat in the tub with warm water and a cat herbal shampoo and scrub the fleas off his body gently. This is one of the best ways to get rid of fleas because you’re removing the fleas while getting rid of the excess dirt and germs that would attract the fleas to the cat.

Apple Cider Vinegar

 Fleas are repelled by vinegar so apple cider vinegar is a good way to keep fleas out the home and away from your cat. Place two tiny drops of the vinegar in your cat’s drinking water and if the cat will not drink the water after you do this, you can add a few teaspoons in his food and this would repel fleas. Another idea is to make homemade insect repeller by combining a cup of apple cider vinegar and a cup of water then pouring it in a spray bottle. After you do this you want to spray it on the floors around the house then wipe with a dry cloth since the vinegar smell will still be there for a few hours.

Vacuum The Entire Home

 This is a highly effective way of getting rid of fleas on cats because when you vacuum the home you remove the flea’s eggs that would turn into more fleas and cause trouble for the cat. In addition to the vacuuming, it is a good idea to deep clean your carpets every few months and steam clean them once or twice a year to repel fleas.

Comb The Fleas Out Cat’s Skin

 After you bathe the cat it is important that you comb out all the fleas and flea eggs of the cat’s skin because even after you bathe him, he is still susceptible to being irritated if the remaining fleas and flea eggs are still in his skin.

Flea Lotions

 Some cat owners use flea lotions on their cats as an effective way of getting rid of fleas and the best way to use this lotion is to apply it to the cat after a bath and this lotion can be applied once a month.

Conclusion

Fleas are irritating for cats and cat owners but with the right remedies and visits to the veterinarian, your cat can be free of fleas and resume his normal life. Make sure you keep the home clean at all times and bathe the cat regularly to reduce flea infestation.
