The Importance of Consistent Flea and Tick Preventative

It’s always important to monitor fleas and ticks year-round. These freeloading pests especially thrive in warmer weather—our climate doesn’t get cold enough to kill their eggs, and since only five percent of fleas are adults, eradicating their eggs is extremely vital.

Preventive medications are the best way to keep undesirable and unwelcome fleas and ticks away from your pets. Check out our online store, which has products such as Bravecto, which is a preventive for dogs that lasts for three months and kills both adults and eggs—we also have a topical version of Bravecto for cats.

No matter which medication you choose, you should still check your pets for fleas and ticks regularly.
