• Our cat has fleas, and we were told to ask the local vet which kind of treatment to use on the cat. Should we physically take him in to the vet? Or is that an issue because he has fleas and it could spread to the vets office? Never dealt with fleas before so not sure how to handle it.

    Hi Corey,
    You can call and talk to your local veterinarian about the fleas. They may be able to prescribe the flea prevention without seeing your pet. If they need to examine her first they can let you know that and schedule her visit.

Need more information or advice?

Contact your nearest Banfield Pet Hospital to schedule an appointment today.
