Spring brings Ticks and Fleas
Spring is upon us, and the flea population is
flourishing. Are your pets protected appropriately?
There are many flea products on the market so making an informed choice can be confusing.
Consulting with your Veterinarian will help you choose the most effective, safest and appropriate option for your pet.
Some treatments can be administered orally, such
as Sentinel, (which provides a small amount of flea control in conjunction with
heartworm prevention), Comfortis (which provides protection from fleas for 30
days), and Capstar (which is an effective initial treatment to kill fleas but only remains effective for 24 to 48 hours so a monthly preventative is recommended in conjunction with
Other treatments are
applied to the skin along the back of the neck such as Advantage, ProMeris, and
Frontline Plus. These topical treatments provide flea control for 30 days but exposure to
water and most soap products can weaken their effectiveness.
In addition to fleas, ticks also flourish in the spring.
Ticks carry many harmful diseases which can be transmitted to your pet. If your
environment exposes your pet to ticks there are specific products available such as
Preventick collars which provide protection for 30 days. Advantix and
Frontline and other topical treatments also prevent ticks from finding a home on your pet.
As with all medicines, always follow your Veterinarian's recommendations and dosing
directions before administering any flea or tick prevention since some may be
dangerous or inappropriate for your pet. Use extreme caution if handling any products which
contain permethrins as they are highly toxic to cats and pocket pets. It is usually best to get your flea
medications from a licensed Veterinarian because some over-the-counter flea treatments may contain harmful chemicals.
