Protect Your Pet From Fleas & Ticks

When asked how cats and dogs are most alike, we say it’s the need for regular flea and tick prevention. While the warm weather allows these small pests to run rampant, it’s important to maintain flea and tick prevention even in the cooler months. This is because pests that have found their way inside can survive and breed if left unchecked. Contact us to get flea and tick treatment to ensure the health and well-being of your pets.

Safety First

There are a lot of flea and tick products on the market, but you can’t always be sure which ones are safe. Cats, in particular, have delicate systems and can be physically overwhelmed with many medications. To be sure that the flea and tick treatment you use is safe for your pet, discuss this with us at your next appointment. We have records of your cat’s health and any potential complications that may make certain treatments safe or dangerous. Our team also knows the proper dosages to apply.

Skin Allergies & Other Issues

Neglecting to treat fleas and ticks can have serious consequences for your pets. The most common problems fleas cause are skin allergies and tapeworms, which grow inside your pet’s intestinal tract and eventually cause your pet to lose weight as they eat your pet’s nutrients. You may find your pet is always hungry, and yet seems to be losing weight. Fleas can also cause hair loss and secondary infections from excessive scratching. Cats are particularly vulnerable to anaemia caused by flea infestations. Ticks are even more dangerous, as they cause anaemia, and then paralysis can follow, and even seizures and death. To protect your pet from these risks, it is important to take preventive measures to avoid tick infestation before it starts.
