Practice Good Flea and Tick Prevention Year Round

Flea and tick prevention begins the instant that you take your cat or dog outside! Fleas can jump on and off your pet before you even realize that they were there. Fleas can not only cause your dog to itch and develop flea allergy dermatitis, but they also carry blood-borne parasites, tapeworms, and more! Ticks can be active every month of the year. Ticks can carry Lyme disease, cause Tick paralysis, and human-transmitted diseases! Fleas and ticks can live indoors in undisturbed, protected sites (e.g., in carpets, under furniture, along baseboards). As with most diseases, prevention is the greatest defense against ticks and fleas.

Check With a Veterinarian Before Using Flea and Tick Products

Many flea and tick preventions are designed specifically for dogs or cats. Particularly, if cats are given dog prevention products, they can have very bad reactions and it could potentially be life-threatening. Some dog breeds can also be very sensitive to certain flea and tick products. We can recommend personalized flea and tick treatments that you can use to prevent fleas and ticks throughout the year.
