Description

However, if you have adopted a pregnant queen or find yourself with a cat that is expecting unexpectedly, as it were, you may not get the chance to do this before the litter is born. The challenges with flea treatments in young kittens Treat your home: Perform a thorough cleaning of your home, concentrating on carpeting and upholstered surfaces. Make sure to treat your home and surrounding areas to destroy eggs, larvae, and pupating fleas.

Rub these two oils together to form a paste. Massage it onto your pet’s fur and underbelly, paying particular attention to fleabite locations. The coconut oil acts as a protective barrier that keeps fleas from biting, while neem oil works as a natural pesticide. Remove excess with a paper towel. Remember that if you have an indoor-only cat, it’s safest to treat at night when they aren’t roaming outside (if you choose not to let them out). 9) Catnip Essential Oil It depends entirely on the one you buy, of course! You won’t go far wrong when purchasing one of the bottles from our list above, but it’s still important to manage your expectations when it comes to the effectiveness of a multi-purpose tool. Flea sprays aren’t going to be as effective at killing fleas on your cat as a topical treatment would be, they also probably won’t repel fleas as well as collars do while your cat is outdoors.Admittedly, it’s a little more expensive than the other sprays on our list considering you only get an 8 and a half-ounce bottle. But what you do get for your money is a very powerful flea spray for cats in the home. It uses Fiprinol as its main active ingredient, and it really does work. It’s important to clean the environment as well as the animals — otherwise, the fleas will be a persistent problem. Serious safety concerns have also been raised. The Seresto flea collar has been named in over 100,000 reports filed with the EPA and, according to the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting, it has been linked to as many as 1,700 pet deaths. Flea collars can also pose a strangulation hazard if they get caught on something. What We Liked:

Frontline Spray is dosed based on the weight of the cat it’s being applied on. The label on the spray bottle does include a weight-based dosing chart to refer to for both cats and dogs. Here at betterpet, our vets avoid recommending Adams products because etofenprox (the active ingredient) is a pyrethroid derivative that is toxic to cats. This also goes for Sentry and Vet-Kem, both of which also have the active ingredient of permethrin. Another to avoid is Vet’s Best flea products. They contain peppermint oil, which is toxic. This is a controversial topic, and although many products have a very low concentration, we’d rather be safe than sorry and avoid recommending any products that contain this potentially toxic substance. How to shop for or choose a flea spray Insecticides containing adulticide, such as permethrin, kill fleas, and insect growth regulators, such as methoprene or pyriproxyfen, kill flea eggs. Does vacuuming help after using a flea spray?Application method. The most common flea treatments are topical spot-on solutions, tablets, and powders. Topical spot-on solutions definitely lead the way in terms of effectiveness, but they can be accidentally ingested and some leave an oily residue. Tablets are also a good option if your kitten has sensitive skin, but they usually need to be given more often. Powders are a good short-term option but need frequent reapplication. Make a homemade flea spray by mixing 1 part dish soap with 3 parts water. Add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to every cup of water used. Soak a washcloth in your concoction and wring it out well so that it doesn’t drop excessively when sprayed. Apply directly to affected areas, spraying from a distance (about 6 inches) so that you don’t accidentally get any on your cat. Let dry and then repeat once per day until fleas are gone, or you need to reapply after 2 or 3 days. 14) Super Simple Salt Solution Mix a few drops of lavender essential oil with 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Spray on your pet’s coat and around your home, mainly where your pet sleeps. This spray is safe to use on both cats and dogs, though you may want to test it first on a small area to be sure. (Source: A Few Drops of Lavender.) 13) Dish Soap, White Vinegar and Water Spray As far as this 3-week kitten goes, it’s been touch-and-go as the people that brought her into the clinic saw her get tossed out of a car window. This poor baby hit her face and had her lip pulled away from her jaw. We’re missing some teeth from the trauma, too. It can be tough to determine which homemade flea spray to choose for your cat, especially if you don’t have any experience with DIY flea-repellent products. The first thing to recognize is that your first DIY recipe may not work as well as you would like it to. So, be prepared to try multiple recipe options before finding one that you like the best in terms of effectiveness, ease of making, and scent.

If you have a tiny kitten or puppy, baby shampoo might be your best bet. It’s mild enough to irritate sensitive skin, and it cleans well. Just use your favorite brand and spray liberally. Bonus: You can combine baby shampoo with water in a 1:1 ratio if you prefer a more liquid application instead of foam or gel. 19) A Homeopathic Treatment for Animals Totally stain and grease-free, meaning you can spray it over beds, curtains, carpets, and cushions without worrying about leaving any marks. It also repels mosquitoes and since it’s manufactured in the USA, you know the ingredients are of high quality. There are several topical cat-safe flea control products on the market. It’s very important to avoid using products labeled for dogs on cats. (These can lead to a deadly allergic reaction and an emergency vet visit.) If possible, avoid flea dips, sprays, powders, or collars. If you choose to use such products, do your homework and discuss with your vet. It’s important to be absolutely sure that the ingredients used are safe for cats. How long until fleas go away?Pyrethrins: Derived from the Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium plant and other pyrethrum-related plant species, pyrethrins are commonly used in flea powders and shampoos. Pyrethrins can be toxic to cats in large amounts or if used incorrectly. It’s important to note here that the spray cannot be used in a single application spot at the base of the head the way the spot-on products can be used. Spot-on products have a carrier agent that allow the drug to spread throughout the oils of the coat over about 18 to 24 hours. The spray must be used more liberally across the entire coat and body to be effective. Add about 15 drops of eucalyptus, 20 drops of lavender, and 10 drops of rosemary to 1 cup of water in a spray bottle. Shake gently before use. Use on your cat once a week. (Avoiding getting it in their eyes.) conclusion: In consultation with your vet, kittens over 4 weeks old may be treated with Capstar (there is a minimum weight requirement). This application kills the adult fleas but not their offspring.
