November means... Fleas!
As the weather heats up so do those pesky little parasites that all dogs and cats hate with a passion. Flea pupae that have been lying dormant in the environment since autumn are now being triggered to hatch out into adult fleas. The result is itching dogs and cats, and if the situation is bad enough, their owners as well!
5 Steps to Eradicating Fleas:
1 Treat all household pets with a long-lasting flea prevention chemical
2 Replace all your pet’s bedding with new bedding
3 Treat every area the pet lives in with an environmental chemical
4 Prevent access of untreated animals to your property
5 Strictly follow chemical guidelines and use good quality brands
Don’t cut corners! Follow the instructions on the product and from your veterinarian.
