Fleas and Ticks

With 62 percent of households owning pets - 68 million dogs and 73 million cats in the U.S. - it's no wonder that it sometimes seems like a continuous problem with flea and tick infestation. Even the most diligent pet owner can't eliminate the risk of fleas or ticks, and when preventive methods fail, it's time to get tough with these parasites.

Fighting on Several Fronts
Putting a stop to a flea or tick infestation requires treating the pet itself, home, yard and sometimes the car. Simply eliminating adult fleas and ticks from a pet may not be sufficient because eggs and larvae may be hiding in carpeting, bedding, upholstery and in cracks in doors, windows and floors. The maturation process may take months, so thoroughness and perseverance are key to effectively eliminating fleas and ticks.

Your best resource for control of ticks and fleas on your pets is your veterenarian.  The vet has a wide variety of medications that can prevent a flea or tick infestation of your home from ever happening.  Our company mascot, Tink, takes a monthly dose of Trifexis prescribed by her veterenarian.  http://www.trifexis.com/
