Prevent Flea and Tick Infestation
When is the last time you had to battle flea and 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 cause dogs lots and lots of itching and scratching, 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 treatments to help your dogs escape any irksome fleas and ticks.
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 shampoo in tandem with a collar might be a good fit.
But if you prefer a less time-consuming routine, a monthly topical flea and tick treatment might be better. Use this graphic to weigh the choices—and then decide.
