ELIMINATING AND REPELING PARASITES - Naturally
It is important to know that parasites like fleas, ticks and mites are most attracted to pets in poor health. A healthy immune system is the best support you can give your cat to help him stay parasite free.
Here is the most effective approach to keep your pet healthy and free from skin irritating parasites.
Unfortunately most commercial parasite repellants and treatments contain chemicals that have an undesired effect on the immune system and are potentially harmful if ingested. Thankfully nature has given us the means to eradicate these pests and make your cat unattractive to future infestations.
- Treat infestations naturally.
- Use essential supplements to keep parasites away.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle (regular grooming, exercise and diet).
|Treat Infestations - Naturally|
At the first sign of infestation - take action. Insect bites can pose a severe threat to your pet's health. They can cause skin irritation, anemia, and transfer several different dangerous diseases. Also, ingesting parasites can result in intestinal worms.

|Essential Supplements to Keep Parasites Away|
One of the best ways to keep your cat free from parasites is to keep him healthy. Pests tend to prey on cats with compromised immune systems, so boosting the immune system is important to your cat's health in more ways than originally thought.
In addition, certain supplements have been shown to repel biting pests. Adding yeast to your cat's diet makes the skin less appealing to parasites. However, not all yeast products are appropriate for your cat. Brewers yeast (the most common yeast supplement) is made from wheat, which can aggravate allergies.
Nupro Cat Nuggets - Nupro has been the gold standard in pet supplements for over 18 years. In addition to being rich in vitamins, mineral, enzymes and amino and fatty acids, Nupro also contains nutritional yeast (vegetable source, not grain source). It includes everything your cat needs to maintain a healthy coat and skin, while boosting their immune system. No cat should be without Nupro feline formula.
As a further boost, many veterinarians recommend adding additional amounts of long chain fatty acids, found in the highest concentrations in fish oil. Extra amounts of these fatty acids may help cats that have difficulties with allergies and further strengthen the skin from parasite attacks.

|Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle - diet, grooming and exercise|
Animal caregivers consistently report that pets fed an all-natural diet, provided the necessary supplements and given regular grooming and exercise have fewer problems with parasites than pets that are compromised. One veterinarian shared the story of an outdoor cat that was fed a natural, whole food diet supplemented with yeast. The cat never got fleas, while the neighboring cat always had fleas in late summer!
In addition to proper nutrition, regular grooming and exercise are important too. Exercise helps keep your cat healthy and therefore less attractive to parasites. Regular grooming is also important. Brushing helps keep the coat and skin healthy.
