The summer months are here and your pet is likely to spend more time outside. Sooner or later, you might find yourself fighting off fleas and ticks.
Read these tips on how you can protect your pet.
They're creepy, they're crawly...and they can carry diseases according to AVMA.org. Fleas and ticks are not just a nuisance, but pose animal and human health risks. They feed on your pet's blood and can transmit diseases. Children and adults in your household can be bothered by fleas as well. Don't let these pesky parasites ruin your summer. Ask your veterinarian to recommend the best options for protecting your pet.
|A few tips on how to protect your pets:|
- Discuss the use of preventative products with your veterinarian to determine the safest and most effective choice for each pet.
- Always talk to your veterinarian before applying any spot-on products.
- Only purchase EPA-registered pesticides or FDA-approved medicines.
- Read the entire label before you use/apply the product.
- Cats are not small dogs. Products labeled Use for dogs only should never be used for cats.
- Weight matters. Make sure the weight range listed on the label matches the weight of your pet. Giving a smaller dog a dose intended for a larger dog could be harmful to your pet.
