Fleas can be horrible. Not only do they infest your pets, but also they live in many dark spaces in your home. They like dark and warm places. They can be found in carpet, bedding, and more. If you get fleas in your home, it is not easy to get rid of them.
Fleas cause your pets to be itchy. They may dig themselves raw until their skin gets infected. The worst part about fleas is that many pets are allergic to them. Even one or two fleas will drive cats and dogs crazy.
Ticks are also a problem in our area. They feed off of the blood of your pets. This is often not enough to make your pets sick. However, many ticks carry terrible diseases such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, and more. Some dogs are allergic to tick bites, which causes a serious problem.
Fortunately for us, we offer parasite prevention (or preventative measures) for fleas and ticks. These medications need to be given every month for the best results. We also recommend giving them all year round because fleas and ticks can cause problems no matter what time of year it is.
The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.
At Animal Focus, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. Pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
The cost of parasite prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance.
