Cat parasites are a real pain and can be very dangerous for your pet. From simple itching to infection or zoonosis (a disease that can be transmitted from animals to humans), the consequences of a parasite on a cat’s health can be significant.
Parasites in cats or kittens: the symptoms?
Our guides are there to help you identify the cat’s various parasites and the symptoms they cause.
Learning how to recognise a tick on a cat can be particularly useful because they do not cause itching in the cat for example, which is an expected symptom, as with the flea.
Fleas and ticks are not the only parasites that pose a threat to your cat. Mites, roundworms or even dandruff can also parasitize your pet.
Cat Parasites: What diseases?
If they aren’t treated in time, cat parasites can cause disease. One of the most common is cat dermatitis, an allergic reaction to parasites.
Your cat may also have ringworm, feline borreliosis (or Lyme disease), or toxoplasmosis, a disease that can potentially be transmitted to humans.
With our guides, learn how to avoid these diseases by choosing the best treatment against cat parasites.
