Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs
When is the last time you had to battle a flea or tick infestation on your dog? It’s no fun, is it? Those pests have a way of spreading like wildfire and sticking around, too. Fleas can cause lots and lots of itching, scratching, and just plain misery for dogs and ticks can be much more dangerous to the animal’s health. Fortunately, the animal care community has been hard at work developing a variety of flea and tick prevention for dogs to help your pets escape any irksome pests.
When you review the options, you have to think about your pet and your lifestyle. Can you commit to regular activity to help keep fleas and ticks at bay? If so, something like flea shampoo in tandem with a collar might be a good fit. But if you prefer a less time-consuming routine, a monthly topical and tick treatment might be better. Use this graphic to weigh your choices—and then you can decide.
