The closer we snuggle to our pets the closer we get to the parasites they may have. Dogs and cats can harbor many intestinal and external parasites. The best and most effective way to combat this is with preventative medicine.
Fleas: Unfortunately, once you’ve spotted a flea on your pet it is very likely that there is an infestation in your home. The best way to both combat and prevent this from occurring is to treat your pets with Nexgard or Frontline Plus once a month during the warmer months of the year. This will help keep those icky friends from taking residence on your pet, in your home and possibly on you!
Ticks: Dogs and cats who are most at risk for attracting all breeds of ticks are ones who spend time outside and in the mountains or forests. Their presence can be avoided by administering a topical preventative like Frontline Plus once a month during warmer times of the year.
Lice: Most species of lice are specific to the animal that they live off of, so dog and cats have their own species of lice that is not transmissable to humans but can be passed to other pets. Nexgard and Frontline Plus prevents most types of lice from infesting your pet.
