Why prevent fleas and ticks? 

The importance of killing these little suckers will become obvious to anyone who has ever been in a flea-infested house!  A flea crawling inside your trouser legs or biting you is one of the worst sensations.  It is just as uncomfortable and irritating for your dog to be bitten by fleas or ticks.  But fleas and ticks can cause serious health problems for your dog, so ensure your home and surroundings are flea-free and tick-free zones!

Use dog flea and tick treatments for your dog’s health and your family’s health.

Killing fleas and ticks is essential for your dog's health and for the health of your family! 


Besides being an irritant, fleas can cause serious health problems for your dog.  The most common health problems suffered by dogs who are bitten by fleas include Flea Allergy Dermatits (or FAD), anemia, tapeworms (where dogs swallow infested fleas) and even  Bartonella bacteria infections (causing bartonellosis).  Fleas are not only a nuisance and irritating, when they bite humans - fleas can also spread diseases and parasites. Some of the most dangerous (albeit rare) diseases are flea-borne typhus and bubonic plague.


Ticks are another parasite that poses a threat to your dog’s health and the health of your family - 

common tick-borne diseases in the United States include Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesiosis, Bartonellosis, and Hepatozoonosis. Many of these factors can cause serious health problems in dogs, as well as in humans. 

Use a Flea and Tick Prevention Treatment all year round!

Fleas and ticks are a problem all year round - so you need to use a flea and tick treatment all year too.


In a cold climate, you might think that fleas disappear over winter - this is a myth!  Even if it's snowing outside, if there are animals with fleas or ticks, the fleas and ticks can continue breeding and can infect your dog at any time.  Even in winter, your home is a warm and cozy place, perfect for fleas to continue their infestation!  You can find them in carpets, furniture, bedding - even cracks in wood or tile floors - and they will happily multiply until a warm body comes along to feed them blood!


It is much easier to prevent fleas and ticks than treat one, so use a preventive treatment regularly. 


How do I choose the best flea and tick prevention products for my dog?


 There are lots of different products on the market that kill fleas and ticks in dogs - and it can be confusing to decide what product your pet needs.  You will also need to work out what works best with the heartworm and intestinal worm treatments that your dog is taking.

It is important that you know that there is not currently any product on the market that treats fleas AND ticks AND heartworm AND all intestinal worms - you need to use a combination of products to give your dog full protection from parasites.
