I have used anti-flea drops on my cat but the fleas come back. What should I do?


My cat keeps getting fleas. I have used anti-flea drops from the pet shop, but the fleas keep coming back. What can I do?


When fleas are troublesome like this, you need to go and talk to your vet. You need to use a highly effective product on your cat, as well as dealing with flea eggs in the carpets and furnishings of your home. The anti-flea products for vets are often the latest, most effective versions, and the vet will also be able to sell you a special spray for your home, to stop any flea eggs from hatching out and re-infesting your cat.

If you are worried about your pet's health, visit the Petfix DIY Triage Checker or talk to your vet as soon as possible.
