Fleas and ticks are not just irritating to your pet; they can cause some serious illness and health problems.
We offer our top tips and advice for keeping your furry companion flea and tick free.
Adult fleas and ticks spend most of their time on an animal, but flea eggs, larvae, and pupae are most often found in the pet’s environment – especially in carpeting, bedding, and under furniture edges.
The “3 Ps” offers an effective flea and tick control programme.
- PURGE: Eliminate the parasites from your pet – choose sprays, powder or dip that kills fleas and ticks.
- PREVENT: Keep them off your pet. A once-a-month treatment for flea & tick control is recommended.
- PROTECT: The home is a desirable habitat, to win the battle against fleas and ticks is to use this multi-focal approach. Be systematic and thorough and you will find that you and your pet can enjoy life without these pests.
When you’re dealing with fleas and ticks, you need to keep them under control by regularly inspecting your pet’s skin and using an effective insecticide. By doing so, you’ll avoid skin irritation and infections and even worse, life threatening illness. When it comes to these little parasites, prevention is definitely better than cure.
TIP: Check the label of insecticides carefully – products for dogs are not necessarily suitable for the use on cats or other animals.
