As the weather warms up and the days get longer, it won't only be us who will be celebrating! The cheeky flea will be out and about and even though they can cause problems all year round, it is during spring and summer that we see them come out in their forces.
Flea eggs like to sit dormant through the winter months and it only takes a few warm and sunny days for them to start celebrating and begin hatching.
It's always best to be on the front foot when it comes to prevention. The aim is to kill the eggs before they hatch and you can do this by making sure your pet is up to date with top quality flea control. Not all flea products are effective at treating the entire life cycle, and some might even be a waste of your money, but if you are unsure which flea treatment will suit you please contact Pet Guardians as we are more than happy to help your furry friend remain flea free for the rest of the year!
It only takes one flea bite for your pet to start feeling pretty itchy and uncomfortable. If the itch gets out of control, the trauma caused by scratching can lead to skin infections and the need for antibiotics. This is no fun for you or your pet.
When it comes to fleas, prevention is the key! So beat the flea this spring and make sure your pet (and all pets in the household) are protected.
Comfortis Plus and Bravecto for dogs are popular flea treatment chewable tablets. These are available at Pet Guardians. If you need help selecting a suitable medication for your pet, please contact us.
