The Importance of Flea Treatment
To protect your pet from parasites, you need to keep them free of the insects that can cause those parasites. Fleas can bite your cat or dog and can transfer parasites. As a result, your pet can feel unwell and experience health problems. Not only that, but fleas also feed on blood and an infestation can make your furry friend anemic and damage its health.
Reducing Exposure to Ticks
Like fleas, ticks take blood and transfer parasites or potential diseases when they bite your pet. A tick will latch onto your pet's skin until they have enough blood and then they detach and fall off. Along with that, they can also enter your home and affect any other pets you may have. In order to protect your pets, it’s important to keep ticks away from the home.
How Internal Parasites Can Harm Your Pet
When your pet is infected by fleas or ticks, it can start to lose weight, have trouble eating, and experience other health problems. You may notice worms in its feces and he or she could also be lethargic. Visiting our veterinarian for flea and tick prevention can help reduce further complications and provide your pet with prompt treatment.
