It was a sad day when we discovered that Salt and Pepper had fleas. A few fleas may not harm a cat but too many may cause anemia.
Within a few hours of the discovery of fleas, my husband bought Sergeant’s Skip-Flea & Tick Shampoo and Bayer’s Carbamate Bay-o-pet powder.
The shampoo is applied to the wet cat and worked into its fur. The lather must be left on for a few minutes for best results. The shampoo can only be used every two weeks.
The powder is sprinkled on the fur once a week.
Fortunately, the fleas were gone after using the powder and shampoo once. But we’re taking precautions by using the shampoo every two weeks and the powder once a week.
