Tick and Flea Prevention
Use flea and tick preventatives: There are many products available to prevent ticks and fleas on pets, including topical treatments, oral medications, and collars. These products are typically available through us and we encourage you to ask us about it especially if your pet companion likes to venture outside. It’s important to follow the product instructions carefully and use the appropriate product for your pet’s size and weight.
Keep your pet’s environment clean: Regularly vacuuming carpets, washing pet bedding, and keeping the yard free of debris can help prevent fleas and ticks from infesting your pet’s environment.
Check your pet regularly: Regularly check your pet for ticks and fleas, especially after spending time outdoors in areas where these pests are common. Use a fine-toothed comb to check for fleas, and carefully remove any ticks with tweezers.
Keep your pet away from wild animals: Wild animals such as rodents and deer can carry fleas and ticks, so it’s important to keep your pet away from these animals to prevent infestations.
Maintain good hygiene: Regular grooming, including bathing and brushing your pet’s coat, can help prevent flea and tick infestations.
In summary, preventing ticks and fleas on pets requires a combination of preventative measures, including the use of preventatives, keeping the environment clean, checking your pet regularly, avoiding contact with wild animals, and maintaining good hygiene. By following these tips, you can help keep your pet healthy and comfortable.
