Vet-Formulated Natural Cat Lice Remedies
Lice are small insects that live in your cat’s hair and feed on both the skin and hair. These insects move from host to host through direct contact and have tiny claws that allow them to cling to the hair.
Female lice will glue their eggs, also called nits, to your kitty’s hair near the skin where they attach tightly.
Symptoms of Lice
- Biting and scratching
- Matted hair
- Small wounds
- Rubbing infected areas
NHV remedies for cat lice, like Target Spray, contain a proprietary blend of potent herbs including:
- Rosemary, which has been used as an insect repellent for centuries.
- Neem, which can be found in many veterinary pet products due to its disinfectant properties. It also helps prevent infections and acts as a fela, tick, mite, and insect repellant.
Two varieties of Lice That Affect Cats
- Biting Lice—These lice fed on the skin and scales of your cat.
- Sucking Lice—These lice feed on your cat’s blood. They can cause anemia and protein deficiency.
When your cat has lice, nutritional voids are bound to occur, preventing your feline from feeling healthy. Keeping your kitty’s immune system stimulated will help defend against the harmful effects of lice. Find out more about NHV’s multi-essentials for cats from a review written by a satisfied customer.
Facts About Lice Eggs
- Lice eggs are pale and translucent in color.
- They have an almost oval shape.
- They take three to four weeks to mature.
- Once active, you can part your cat’s fur and see them moving.
At NHV, we offer a vast array of organically grown herbal remedies for cats with lice to help balance and support their immune system.
Additional Support Tips
- The lice that affect cats and other animals are not usually attracted to humans, so pet parents should not be concerned about being their next victims.
- The lice eggs can be dislodged with a fine-tooth comb, but the process is tedious and will not kill the lice that have not yet hatched.
- Talk to your vet about a shampoo or insecticide that may help.
- Consult with your vet about including natural supplements to help support your kitty along with vet-recommended treatment for cat lice.
NHV’s supplements are safe to use long-term and provide excellent support in conjunction with conventional medicines. You can read our blog at NHV online to find out what to look for when picking out supplements for your pet.
