    needing help getting rid of ticks and fleas

    We don't live on a farm, but we don't live in a neighborhood either, but out behind our house is a pasture and just a few days ago, they put quite a few cows out there....Before, they were here, I have not seen either tics or fleas, but ever since they got here, I have seen 2 tics, and a couple fleas, and I woke up yesterday morning with chigger bites all on my side...there are about 5 or 6 of them right by each other..I am assuming they are flea bites...they just look like chiggers....ohh well...I am going to have to buy a flea collar ad have the vet check both kitties today for fleas..I have tried to see if either one of them had any on them, I didn't see any, I am taking Fluffy in today to get her stitches out and Rocky has to get a leukemia shot anyway so while I am there I am going to see what they can do about it.....if anyone has any suggestions..please let me know...

    I would definitely talk to your vet about what are the best options for you--there are so many preventatives and medicines out there--hearing it from your vet is probably the best. I don't know much about cats, but for dogs I have heard Advantage and Frontline work very well, and we use Revolution on our dogs--it covers fleas, ticks, mosquitioes and heartworm.

    Let us know what you find out.

    Ask your vet about Revolution. It gets rid of ticks, fleas, flea eggs AND earmites. It's the best thing I've used that's on the market.

    If you get fleas in the house, one thing that helped me was
    Fleabusters. It is a powder that you work into your carpet and it lasts for about a year, withstanding vacuuming!
