Why You Should Use Flea and Tick Prevention Methods 

Fleas are a nuisance to your pet. They cause itching that can lead to your pet having issues resting comfortably. Additionally, fleas can cause certain diseases. If your pet eats a flea infected with a worm, your pet could suffer from worms in addition to the flea outbreak. Fleas can infest your home and bite you and your family. Once you start itching these bites, it's possible for them to get infected. If your pet should get fleas, they rob your pet of nutrition. When your pet doesn't get enough nutrients, you might notice your pet's coat doesn't look as shiny and healthy as it should.

Ticks are also known carriers of diseases like Lyme disease. These diseases can lead to permanent problems with your pet's health. 

Different Types of Flea and Tick Prevention

When you go in for your appointment, our veterinarian will discuss your options to prevent fleas and ticks. For instance, spot-on treatments are a common option. These consist of a liquid or gel applied to the base of the skull. The active ingredient travels through the bloodstream and is excreted through your pet's sweat glands to prevent against parasites.  Our veterinarian may also recommend oral medications that prevent fleas, ticks, and other parasites.

How a Veterinarian Can Help Prevent Fleas and Ticks

Often times, the treatments available from your vet are more effective than those available in stores or online. They have higher quantities of the active ingredient. In addition, the active ingredients in our flea treatment options are sometimes different and more effective than what you can find in stores. If your pet should happen to contract fleas or a tick, our veterinarian is able to treat the fleas or remove the ticks safely. We can also recommend products and tips to safely and effectively remove fleas from your home.
