Flea and Tick Prevention

Fleas and ticks are parasites that can cause problems for your pet. While many pet owners know that they do not want their pets infested with these parasites, they may not realize what they should do to prevent an infestation, or even why prevention is so important. At Sunrise Pet Hospital, located in Anaheim Hills, CA., our veterinary staff would like to educate you on flea and tick prevention.

Reasons To Prevent Flea and Tick Infestations

One of the biggest reasons for prevention is because both fleas and ticks carry diseases that can be passed on to your pet. Another reason why you want to keep these pests off of your pet is that they can make your pet uncomfortable or itchy. Finally, fleas can jump off of your pet and begin to infest your home as well. They can bite you or your children. It can be costly to remove a large flea infestation from your home, so protecting your pet also helps to protect you, your family, and your home.

The Importance of Flea and Tick Prevention

If you are looking for flea and tick prevention, there are over-the-counter products that you can buy online, at big-box retailers or from pet stores. It is recommended that you skip over-the-counter treatments and products, and instead, work with a local veterinary clinic to properly treat your pet. At home flea treatments are not always consistent. Some products may also be unsafe for the age, weight, and type of pet that you have. A vet can offer you a safe and effective way to deter these unwanted pests.

Steps to Take

If your pet already has a flea infestation, you will want to use a flea treatment that kills the bugs, such as flea baths. If a tick is present, you will need to properly remove the tick. If at-home treatments are not working, or you are unable to remove the tick from your pet, call a vet and schedule an appointment. Veterinarians can remove ticks and offer flea treatments to help get rid of these pests for good.
