Even 30 years ago, according to veterinarians, in the territory of Eastern Europe, about 90% of cats were constantly affected by several types of parasites. And even now, parasitic diseases are extremely common. If, for example, the owner takes his pet to the country in the summer, the risk of infection of the pet will increase significantly.
