Common Cat Disease Associated to Fleas

 Fleas also transmit other conditions which can have a more dangerous effect on your cat's health.


1.Anemia

......................

 Flea feast on animal blood,it cause anemiain animal. Unchecked infestations of fleas can actually cause anemia from blood loss, this can sometimes be fatal, particularly in kittens. When a small cat, or especially a kitten, has a substantial number of fleas on its body, the amount of blood lost to the sucking parasites can actually leave the cat with anemia. sometimes the blood loss is so severe and the cat is so anemic that it needs a blood transfusion to aid recovery. Pale gums are a red flag for anemia in kittens, and a sign that immediate veterinarian attention is needed.


2.Bartonellosis

..............................

Bartonellosis is a bacterial disease that is transmitted to cats through flea bites. It is often called cat scratch fever, and while it can cause a bit of a fever in the cat, it’s when the cat bites a human that things really get ugly.
Cat scratch fever is also transmitted to humans by cat bite and Humans can experience fever, lethargy, and enlarged lymph nodes as well.

3.Flea allergic 

...............................

A few fleas can quickly turn into a pretty dramatic flea infestation. And many cats can easily become so sensitive to the saliva of the flea, which invades the area just under the skin when the flea bites the cat, that they actually become allergic to it.




4.Tapeworm
.................................
Fleas harbor the tapeworm larva, and our fastidious feline friends groom the fleas away with their tongues, ingesting the fleas and giving themselves a raging case of tapeworms. Luckily, most of the time tapeworms don’t bother the cat very much, but if the infestation persists, weight loss can occur.It’s important to remember if your cat has fleas, it probably has tapeworms, so use a high quality flea preventive, and keep using it every month.
If you've spotted fleas,no need to worry too much just keep calm, cat flea control is not only possible, but it can be treated naturally by using some natural ingredients.

Treating Cat Fleas


 1. By Combing
...............................

Your first job is to eliminate as many fleas from your cat by combing and bathing. Once the bulk of the tiny nuisances are gone, you can prevent further flea infestations with the use of a vet recommended topical flea control product.




2. By Bathing
.............................

Bathing your cat with a gentle shampoo or dawn soap can kill the live fleas on it. Many cat's will not tolerate bathing, so do not force them as it is not the most important.


3. By Lemons solution
........................................

One of the most effective natural flea killers is citric acid, which makes lemon juice a widely recognized home remedy for treating fleas. 



To create a solution that is gentle enough for a cat with sensitive skin, boil water with one or two lemons (cut up) and let the lemons steep in the water for several hours. Then, strain all the lemon particles out of the mixture and pour into a spray bottle. Apply the liquid to the cat's skin, making sure to thoroughly dampen all fur. Take care not to get any of the lemon mixture in the cat's eyes. and monitor your pet for redness or other signs of irritation and repeat the treatment as often as needed until the fleas are gone entirely.
This can be repeated up to once a week.
