Why Flea & Tick Prevention Is So Important
Fleas feed on the blood of the animals they infest. They also create intense itching and discomfort from their bites. The itching and scratching can cause skin irritation, setting the scene for a variety of secondary infections that may require treatment. Ticks attach to their victims with suckers that are part of their heads. They can carry several illnesses to pets, including Lyme disease, Babesiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and other conditions that can require extensive treatment. Flea and tick prevention methods help to prevent these problems before they even start, keeping your pet healthy and comfortable.
