Are Ticks and Fleas a Problem?
My family lives on a 3 acre farmstead, with lush farm fields surrounded by 100 acres of beautiful rolling hills. We enjoy the outdoors but are so bothered by the pesky “deer” ticks in our area. It’s very important as pet owners to protect our loved ones from fleas and ticks. Below are the very important reasons why we need to take action and keep our pets safe.
1) Fleas feed on your pets blood, which in turn can cause skin irritations, anemia, and allergic reactions from their bites.
2) Fleas carry tapeworms and can infest your pet. The signs of knowing if your pet has tapeworm – check the anus or stool for rice-like particles.
3) Ticks carry the following diseases – Lyme, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichiosis to name a few.
The above is just a short but important list for all the good reasons to keep a topical product such as Frontline Plus, K9 Advantix, Capstar, etc. applied to your pets during the critical months in your area.
