My cat has fleas and they are visible. They are on his stomach and causing him to become very skinny and his coat is very thin. At his last check up he didn't have them but was severly anemic. I left home and went away for the weekend and was continued to be bit. It is making me crazy. I have applied Vets Best Waterless Flea and Tick Cat Bath Foam multiple times but they are not all gone!

Re: Fleas

Hi sassy&blackie



Thank you for your post and welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear about your cat's condition and recommend you bring them to see a vet right away to make sure the fleas did not causes a more serious issue. In the meantime, you can also try our new "Ask a Vet", see the teal box below this page where you can input your question. I hope your cat feels better soon! 





Re: Fleas

I definitely suggest you take your cat to the vet. Also, I recommend you get a flea preventive medicine for your cat. My dogs use Bravecto flea medicine and it works great. They should have a cat medicine for that too. You can find great flea preventives on a website called "1-800-petmeds".
