Nashville Cat Clinic is here to help with your cat's flea, tick, and heartworm issues!
Fight back against infestation with Nashville Cat Clinic’s help, and save your feline friends from constant irritation!
Keeping your feline family members happy doesn’t take much--nutrition, shelter, and your love. But especially when the weather warms up, life for your cat can quickly go from sunny to desperately uncomfortable as playing outside will bring them into contact with a variety of dangerous parasites. These pests may be hard to spot, so call Nashville Cat Clinic to set up an exam with an experienced, caring veterinarian to determine whether your cat suffers from flea, tick, or heartworm infestation.
Fleas can complete the cycle from egg to reproducing adult in mere days, living on your cat and continuing to lay more eggs daily. Ticks use similar methods of preying on a host’s blood and also spread illnesses such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. If you notice your cat scratching or if tiny dark specks (dried blood resulting from fleas) are left behind in favorite lounging spots, your cat is already affected by fleas, but even if you don’t see these signs bring your cat in for an exam by a veterinarian and flea treatment. Since fleas adapt and spread so easily, your cat likely needs protection even if he/she spends minimal time outside or lives with another animal who does. Our veterinarians will assess your cat’s specific needs, recommend medication, and advise you of how to protect your home against infestation.
In keeping feline family members healthy and happy, don’t forget to include a heartworm test in your cat’s exam and ask our veterinarians for recommendations to prevent heartworms. Spread by mosquito bites from other infected animals to cats, heartworms can live in the lungs as well as the heart, leading to respiratory disease and even death.
