Is your pet on a flea and tick prevention plan yet? If not, now is a great time to consult with our vet and make sure your pet is protected. Unfortunately, both indoor and outdoor pets are otherwise susceptible to flea, tick, and parasite infestations that can lead to serious and even fatal diseases.
Knowing Your Options for Flea and Tick Prevention
The good news is that pet owners have a wide range of options available to them when it comes to flea and tick prevention. Flea collars, for example, are a common solution and are ideal for cats who like to spend some time outdoors. Topical medications can also be used; these are generally applied to the shoulder blade area about once a month and are great for deterring and even killing fleas and ticks on contact.
Oral medications come in pill form and are generally given monthly. If your pet won't take the pill easily on its own, you can use a pill crusher to add it to food.
