Flea and Tick Season

Going Home
by Melinda Dalke


Its summer time and very warm outside, perfect flea and tick season. Are you and your pets ready?

There are more than 200 species of fleas in the United States alone. The number one complant about fleas is itching but the real concern is with disease and worm transfer to your pet.

The United States also has over 200 different tick species. Ticks may carry various infectious organisms that can transmit diseases to cats and dogs.

Luckily there are a wide variety of pest control products for our pets: foggers, sprays, dips, powders, dusts, collars, oral liquids, tablets, and liquid one-spot topical treatment. There are new oral products that interrupt the flea's life cycle.
Please contact your local veterinarian for the best choice for you and your pets.
