Kitten Flea Basics

Pet owners face various challenges throughout the course of their pet’s life that need to be tackled to keep their pet healthy, well, and safe. For cat owners, part and parcel of pet ownership is flea prevention. Fleas pose a significant risk to your pet. Not only can their presence be uncomfortable for your kitten, causing itching, soreness, and other problems, but fleas can also pose a significant health risk - even proving potentially fatal to kittens. It is absolutely essential that you absolutely understand the basics of kitten fleas, how to best prevent kitten fleas and how to best treat fleas if your kitten happens to get them. Read on for more information on all of this!

What are fleas?

Fleas are tiny, wingless insects that can live on your kitten’s body. They source their nutrition from your kitten’s blood, so will bite your cat and suck their blood. Fleas will reproduce and lay eggs in your kitten’s fur, which can result in more fleas living on your pet and can also drop off in your home, causing a flea infestation in your soft furnishings and carpets. Just one flea can lay 2000 eggs in its lifetime (which is often just a few weeks), showing why infestations can happen quickly.

Why Fleas are Dangerous for Kittens

As we briefly mentioned above, fleas are not only inconvenient and uncomfortable for your kitten. They can also pose a serious health risk. Fleas can cause problems such as:

  • Flea allergic dermatitis
  • Anaemia (particularly in kittens and older cats)
  • Tapeworm
  • The spread of other diseases, such as Typhus, Bartonellosis or Rickettsia

Preventing and Treating Fleas

Of course, you are going to want to prevent your kitten from caching fleas. Now, the average kitten’s lifestyle can make preventing fleas difficult. While dogs can be walked on leads and only have free access to your own garden (situations that can be easily controlled), many cats and kittens can roam free. While your kitten is out, you have no idea where they’re spending time, what other animals they’re coming into contact with and have no control over these areas so can’t carry out flea prevention tactics in them. However, there are a range of products you can use to prevent and treat fleas in kittens. Before buying any product, make sure to consult your vet. They will be able to make the best recommendations for your individual pet’s needs and requirements. Common flea preventatives and treatments include:

  • Flea powders
  • Use of a flea comb
  • Spot on treatments
  • Flea shampoo and flea shampoo for kittens
  • Flea collars or a kitten flea collar
  • Tablets
  • Injections

Fleas need to be prevented at all costs and tackled immediately if your cat does catch them. Make sure to check in with your vet for advice and answers to any queries you may have regarding your cat or kitten.
