Default Fleas

You will probably want to worm them with a wormer specific to tapeworms now that you have the fleas under control. Tapeworms are transmitted by eating the host flea, rather than by actual exposure to the worms so flea infestations and tapeworms go hand in hand since cats groom themselves a lot. Better to treat proactively as long as they are old enough and not sick because itís super gross when they just start coming out. https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-p...ection-in-cats

Glad you have finally gotten it under control. When my older cats used to go out I had to be diligent about treating with a once a month or it would just go on endlessly. Even with indoor only cats now, we live in the country so fleas can jump on you outdoors and get brought in that way. I usually have to treat 2 months in a row during the spring and thatís it. Itís a huge factor in not allowing these newer cats outside because itís just so much money and hassle to deal with the fleas and worms. I like revolution but my cats got too large (over 15 lbs) for it so I use cheristin now which works really well for all weights over 2 lbs.
