Flea and Tick Prevention for Cats

Fleas and ticks can cause expensive health issues and agony for the animal. It is good to speak with Dr. Sherry Huskey about the tick and flea treatment she recommends for your cats. When cats are not treated for fleas and ticks, these pesky bugs can transmit diseases and irritate your pet's skin.

There are at least four diseases that fleas and ticks can cause for cats, Bartonella, Dermatitis, Anemia, and Tapeworms. While each one of these is not life-threatening they can worsen and eventually become life-threatening if not treated. 

Fleas are found nearly everywhere and stay active year-round inside your home. Fleas can hide out in any place in the home especially carpeting. This is why it is so vital to treat your pets every month. A Monthly flea control program is vital to the health and wellbeing of your cat. Never apply a flea and tick treatment meant for your dog on your cat. This can cause your cat serious issues.

Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs

Dogs can become a nice warm home for fleas and ticks to live and enjoy. Nothing is going to get rid of these bothersome bugs until you apply a tick and flea treatment. If you do not treat your dog they can suffer from some health issues including secondary infections and skin irritation. Prevention is not just for the summer months but for year-round. If you have dogs there is a good chance that you have fleas and ticks hiding in your home no matter how clean your home is there will be fleas. This is why it is necessary to treat dogs year-round.  Dr. Sherry can help you chose the right flea and tick prevention program for your dog.  Please do not wait until secondary problems arise in your dog. Make an appointment with Dr. Sherry today and get your dog on a good flea and tick prevention program year-round.
