Cat owners need to be extremely vigilant with flea care during the winter
Cats are known for their cleanliness, which can cause some real problems when it comes to keeping an eye out for fleas. Even during the winter months, fleas and ticks can be a problem for felines, especially those that are allowed outdoors. Thankfully, by using a combination of Hartz products and performing a visual inspection of your feline's coat, you can protect him from any problems throughout the season.
Getting into the habit of visually inspecting your cat's coat after he comes indoors is a wonderful regimen to get into. Be sure to check the area around his neck and on his belly to see if any fleas or ticks have decided to take a ride. If you're not always present when your cat comes inside, get into a daily brushing regimen. This is not only a wonderful way to bond with your companion, but it can help to remove small bits of dead skin and loose hair that could be ending up on your furniture. It is also a perfect chance to give your cat's skin a quick visual inspection to see if any fleas, eggs or the filth they leave behind is present.
The easiest way to protect your feline from parasites in any season is to use a monthly flea treatment of topical drops. Hartz UltraGuard Pro Flea and Tick Drops for Cats are placed at the skin level at the base of a cat's neck to provide 30 days worth of protection against fleas, deer ticks and mosquitoes. These drops will kill these pesky insects on contact to stop them from infesting your cat and the rest of your home.
If you do happen to spot one of these insects on your feline's skin, it may be time for a bath with Hartz UltraGuard Rid Flea and Tick Cat Shampoo! This can be a harrowing experience with a cat, so be sure to fill up the tub slow and get him used to the sensation of the water. Be sure to let the shampoo sit for a few minutes to the allow the active ingredients to do their job. This will leave your feline smelling clean and fresh, and you won't have to worry about creepy critters infesting your home in the middle of winter!
