Parasite Control for Cats in New Orleans

Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes thrive in Louisiana thanks to its warm temperatures and high humidity. Therefore, there is a high risk for infection of parasite-transmitted diseases among cats. It may seem unlikely that your indoor cat might be vulnerable to outside threats, but parasites are tiny (and resilient) and can easily find their way into your home. Keeping your cat protected with the right preventative is essential to their health.

The Most Common Parasite Threats

Beyond just being a nuisance, parasites can also make your cat uncomfortable and very ill. Some of the most common cat parasites are:

  • Fleas
  • Ticks
  • Ear mites
  • Roundworms
  • Hookworms
  • Heartworms (transmitted by mosquitoes)

Parasite Preventative for Cats

Flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives for cats also protect them from other parasites, like roundworms, hookworms, and mites. One of the prominent preventatives available is Revolution Plus for Cats, a 6-in-1, broad-spectrum preventative that protects both kittens and cats from fleas, ticks, heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, and ear mites. This product is safe to use and highly effective and should be a year-round staple in your cat’s health regimen.

Too Many Cats Go Unprotected

Unfortunately, most cat owners (approximately 73%) do not currently purchase parasite preventatives before leaving their veterinarian’s office. Even if your cat is indoor-only, parasites can still enter your home either by hitching a ride on you or simply by squeezing through a tiny gap in the corner of your living room. Furthermore, if parasites are affecting your cat, they can also affect you and other members of your family.

We love coming to the Cat Practice for vet appointments and boarding! My cat has stayed at one other boarding place and was extremely distressed when I picked him up. Every time we come here, he is happy and stress free when I pick him up! Thanks!

We have been coming since Cali was a tiny kitty and I would not go anywhere else. We are treated with kindness and friendliness and I very much enjoy going in. It has been the same kind of experience I had with my childrens' pediatric visits.

You're all absolute experts on feline health, and you give my cats the very best of care. I wouldn't take my beloved pets anywhere else.
