As fall begins and the weather cools down it is easy to forget those pesky parasites that bothered us and our pets all summer long.
It is important to remember that fleas and ticks continue to be a nuisance to ours pet all throughout the year. In fact, during the fall and winter, fleas are often looking for a warm place to spend the cold season. Your pets make a very inviting home for them!
The cooler months are some of the most common times for pets to bring flea infestations into your home. These infestations are not easy to get rid of! Ticks, some of which can carry Lyme disease are certainly no stranger in the fall either.
To keep your pets and home free of fleas and ticks we recommend using a monthly preventative all year round. Frontline is the product we recommend for dogs. For cats, a monthly doses of Revolution with help keep them protected from fleas.
Make sure to keep your pets, family, and home safe and parasite free all year long by continuing to use your flea and tick preventative every month, regardless of the season.
