In the SouthEast we enjoy many great geographic wonders- lakes, mountains, temperate climate and easy acces to beaches and entertainment venues. One negative thing we also have is year around fleas and ticks! Dr Billings calls these "friends in low places!" Fortunately science has given us some tools for our fight against the flea and tick. Today we enjoy some premium products that can help us stay ahead of the constant barage of unwanted insect vistors.
Fleas and ticks are not just a nuissance, they can carry diseases as well. So it's important for your pets health and comfort to keep these pesky insects to a minimum. We can't eradicate them and must continue preventative and control measures every month to keep our environments tolerable. Grant Animal Clinic recommends a variety of options to best suit your situation. Fleas can live and reproduce comfortably in our temperature controlled houses all year, therefore a monthly flea adulticide is first recommended. We have a once a month pill (Trifexis or Comfortis) that kills fleas for 30days. We also offer Vectra 3D (for dogs) if you also have a tick problem. We now have a tick and flea control (Seresto) collar that lasts 8 months. It is the best deal for your dollar. These housholds stay well protected.
