How do you keep fleas off a dog? How do I keep ticks and fleas off my cat? Deciding which treatment to use for fleas and ticks on your pet can be a daunting task. Since every pet is different, flea and tick treatments aren’t a one size fits all. Age, size and whether the animal is used for breeding are all factors to consider when choosing a flea and tick treatment or preventative. Do you want a topical, collar or oral medication? What about a prescription verses an over the counter? Before you start to panic, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered!
Our product experts and Education Team partnered to develop a new Flea & Tick Finder. A simple tool designed to help you sort through many of the most common flea and tick treatment and prevention options out there. By answering a few simple questions, you will be guided to the best flea and tick options for your pet. Think of it as creating your pet’s personalized flea and tick plan!
Did You Know?
Did you know it’s important to rotate the type of tick and flea preventative you use every two to three years. Why? Over time, some pests can become resistant to the medication used in a certain preventative. So changing up the medication you use every few years helps ensure efficacy. If you’ve been using the same preventative for years and have noticed it may not be working as well as it once did, it may be time for a change. So check out the Flea & Tick Finder and let us help you make keeping your pet safe a little easier.
