Flea and Tick Prevention
Two of the most common pests are fleas and ticks. Both are external parasites that feed off your pet’s skin. Fleas live in your pet’s fur and can be easily spread from pet to pet. A pet with flea allergies will suffer even more as the flea bites will cause dermatitis, a severe skin irritation.
Ticks are a different beast, and tend to bite once, take their fill and leave. However, that one bite can be dangerous. Ticks carry a range of diseases that can be transferred to your pet, with the most common being Lyme disease. Prevention is key to protecting your pet from these pesky pests.
Heartworms are another parasite that operate internally. Infected mosquitos transfer them when they bite your pet. The worms gather in your pet’s heart and blood vessels of the lungs, and mature there over a period of about 6 months. The severity of heartworm infection varies, and sometimes your pet will have little or no symptoms.
A range of options exist to provide your pet with the right preventive measures for their needs. By avoiding infection all together, your pet can live a more care-free and happy life.
