Is Flea and Tick Prevention Worth It?

Yes, flea and tick prevention is worth it! In fact, parasite control is an essential investment for protecting your pets, yourself, your family, and your guests.

Fleas and ticks aren’t just annoying. They can carry and transmit serious diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and flea-borne typhus.

By investing in regular tick and flea prevention, you’re safeguarding your pet’s health and comfort. But just as importantly, you’re also minimizing the risk of these parasites entering your home and affecting your loved ones.

What Does a Flea or Tick Problem Look Like?

Fleas often cause excessive scratching, red or irritated skin, and small, dark specks of flea dirt in your pet’s fur. You might also notice hair loss, scabs, or hot spots.

Ticks, on the other hand, are easier to spot as they attach themselves to your pet’s skin. You may see a small bump or the tick itself, which can range from the size of a pinhead to a grape when the tick is engorged on blood.

Recognizing the signs of a flea or tick infestation is crucial for early intervention. Both fleas and ticks can lead to significant discomfort and health issues for your pets, so prompt treatment and prevention are essential.

What Do Vets Recommend for Flea & Tick Control?

Our veterinarians recommend a variety of flea and tick control measures, including both prescription oral and topical medications that effectively protect your pet for 1 to 3 months.

However, every pet is unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for flea and tick prevention. That’s why it’s vital that you consult with a veterinarian.

A vet considers factors such as age, weight, health status, and lifestyle. This ensures that the tick & flea prevention method that they recommend is safe and effective for your pet’s specific needs
