Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs & Cats

Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs & Cats

Flea or tick infestation is no fun… Treat your pet with flea and tick prevention year round.
Flea season across the US is 7-12 months, and ticks can attach to your pet even in cold weather.

A flea has 4 stages: egg, larva, pupa, adult

It takes about 1 month for fleas to grow from egg to adult.

A pair of fleas may produce 20,000 fleas in 3 months.

 

So you see why it is a good idea to prevent your dog or cat to get them and bring them in house, as these pests have a way to spread like wildfire. Fleas also can cause lots and lots of itching, scratching, and just plain misery for dogs. Ticks can be even more dangerous for the health of your dog.
