Fleas and ticks are problematic parasites for cats, carrying illnesses such as Lyme disease, babesiosis, flea allergy dermatitis, and others. Even indoor-only cats can be exposed to these bloodsuckers, as fleas and ticks can infiltrate your home by catching a ride on your clothes, shoes, or other items that have been outside.

Because of the risks these bloodsuckers pose to our felines, keeping up with flea and tick prevention is a must for pet parents. Our panel of veterinarians rounded up their top choices for best flea and tick medications based on their own clinical observations, effectiveness of the product on cats, safety, and other contributing factors.
