Flea and Tick Season

Every year as the weather warms up pesky critter start to come back to annoy your furry friends.

Prevention is always the best decision as it is much easier and less expensive than trying to get rid of an infestation. Flea larvae can lay dormant in your house for as long as 7 months before hatching and require more products to get rid of than to prevent. It is also extremely uncomfortable for your cat and/or dog (as one can pass it quite easily to the other).

However, be careful with the over the counter products as it is not as safe as the medication from your veterinary professional.

Don’t wait for your cat to get fleas, contact your veterinarian for more information and pricing or feel free to contact us and keep your cat healthy and happy!
