Best flea preventive for cats.

Species: Cat
Breed: Russian Blue
Age: 1-2 years
Bella is an indoor/outdoor cat; free to roam during the day, but we keep her in at night. My question is, what type of flea/tick treatment do you recommend (i.e., spot treatment vs. collar) for preventative care, and what brand would you most recommend? Thank you for your time in advance.

Sincerely, Sabrina


Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Hi Sabrina. I get asked this question a lot, so I wrote a very comprehensive article on flea prevention. Hopefully you will find what you need there.

Dr. Marie.
