March Is Fight The Fleas Month!

This time of year encourages fleas and ticks, which is bad news for your pet and your household. You see, despite their tiny size, fleas and ticks can cause misery for your pet.

Fleas can also transmit some nasty infections, such as tapeworm, to pets and people. In rare cases, they can play a role in the transmission of an unpleasant disease, called cat scratch fever, between humans and cats.

And in severe infestations, especially in old, ill, or young animals, feeding fleas can remove so much blood from a pet that they can cause debilitating anemia.

And consider this…by the time you see adult fleas on your pet they may account for just 5% of the likely flea population in your home!

Don’t Let Your Pet Become A Fleas Buffet, Restroom & Breeding Ground!

Did you know adult fleas can survive on your pet for up to 113 days, or even longer?

Or that a single female flea can produce up to 1,500 eggs each month?

Or that fleas from your pet can infest your home?

Don’t wait for your pet to start itching, scratching and licking in discomfort.

The best thing to do, before spring’s temperatures start to rise, is to talk to your veterinarian about what is the most effective type of flea control for your pet’s situation in order to keep it happy and flea free!

The good news is this can all be prevented with the proper medication.
