At Manchester Cat Clinic, we take a risk-based approach to parasite protection. This means that we tailor our recommendations to your cat's individual needs.
However, as a general rule...
We suggest that outdoor-access cats are protected against fleas and ticks year round, and wormed every 3 months
Prolific hunters can have extra worming on a monthly basis
We suggest that indoor-only cats are treated for fleas, ticks and worms annually
Indoor-only cats who come into contact with outdoor-access or stray cats should be treated as though they are outdoor-access cats
