Flea and Tick Prevention

Fleas are Dangerous to Pets

Flea bites are highly irritating to pets, and they can even cause allergic reactions. It's common for these bites to cause flea allergic dermatitis, but they can also have wider-ranging allergic reactions. Flea bites can cause your pet to become anemic due to blood loss. Fleas will quickly increase their numbers, and this means even more chances for your pet to develop any of several infectious diseases that fleas can spread. Fleas even spread tapeworms to your pet if a flea is swallowed. Flea bites can range from making your pet sore to giving your pet massive allergic reactions and serious diseases. None of these are necessary with the ease of giving flea and tick prevention medication to pets. 

Ticks Cause Serious Diseases

Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are just two of the many diseases that ticks can spread. Many of the diseases spread by these parasites can be fatal to cats and dogs. Bacterial infections easily spread from ticks, and some of these diseases can spread to humans as well. Every pet must take flea and tick prevention medication so that they aren't vulnerable to these diseases. Depending on the type of medication your pet is prescribed, they may work for anywhere from a month to a full year.
