Did you know that it takes only a single flea bite to cause an allergic reaction in your pet? Tick and flea preventatives can do more than just eliminate your pet's itchy fleas and prevent allergic reactions. Flea and tick medications also prevent tapeworms, ticks, and other insects from biting your pet, and prevent fleas from getting inside your home, on your furniture, and in your bedding. Note: It is much easier to prevent a flea infestation than to treat an existing one. Don't let your furry friend suffer from a flea infestation and don't let fleas get into your home.
Consider the following benefits of using monthly flea preventatives on your pet:
Reduce skin allergies, infections and hot spots
Many pets are allergic to flea saliva, which can trigger allergies, itching, and scratching. Persistent scratching can result in hot spots and other skin infections. Administering a flea preventative can significantly reduce your pet's risk of developing skin infections.
Using a flea preventative can help reduce your pet's risk of tapeworms, which are often carried and transmitted by fleas.
Prevent tick-borne diseases
By using a preventative that kills ticks, you can help to reduce your pet's risk of Lyme disease, Tick Paralysis, Tularemia, Canine Nephrolithiasis, Babesiosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
Prevent flea infestations in your home
The reality is, nobody wants fleas in their home! It's unhealthy living with fleas, not to mention the tedious cleaning, vacuuming, and fogging to get rid of them. Using a flea preventative can reduce the likelihood of fleas not only on your pet, but also in your home.
Talk to your vet
Like all medications, talk to your vet when choosing the best flea and tick preventative for your pet. Not only can your vet answer any questions or concerns you have, but they can also help you determine the best flea and tick preventative for your pet's lifestyle.
