Tip #3

** FLEA AND TICK PREVENTION **

 

PRODUCTS WE PREFER

 

MONTHLY TOPICAL DROPS:

 

ADVANTAGE - GREAT FOR DOGS LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLEAS

 

FRONTLINE PLUS - GREAT FOR DOGS IN AREAS PRONE TO TICKS

 

ORAL PILLS

 

COMFORTIS - GREAT FOR PREVENTING FLEAS ON DOGS THAT NEED ROUTINE MEDICATED BATHS THAT MAY WASH OFF TOPICAL TREATMENTS.

 

CAPSTAR - GREAT FOR KILLING FLEAS FAST,WORKS WITHIN 5 MINUTES. THIS IS ONLY A QUICK FIX, OTHER PREVENTATIVE MEASURES NEED TO BE TAKEN.

 

YARD TREATMENT

 

WE HAVE FOUND THAT SPECTRACIDE (FOUND AT LOWES) WORKS BEST FOR TREATING THE YARD. AFTER SPREADING THE GRANUALES, LIGHTLY SPRAY WITH WATER, ALLOW TO DRY, THEN PETS AND CHILDREN CAN RETURN TO TREATED AREA SAFELY.

 

COMMON MISTAKES MADE BY PET OWNERS

 

AFTER APPLYING TOPICAL DROPS WAIT AT LEAST ONE DAY BEFORE BATHING YOUR PET AND ONLY USE A MILD DOG SHAMPOO FOR ROUTINE BATHING. MANY OWNERS USE FLEA SHAMPOO, MEDICATED SHAMPOO, DISH DETERGENT, OR BABY SHAMPOO WHICH WILL WASH OFF TOPICAL DROPS ALLOWING FLEAS AND TICKS TO RE-INFEST DOG.

 

DISCARD VACUUM DEBRIS IN GARBAGE CAN OUTSIDE, IF HOUSEHOLD PETS HAVE HAD FLEAS, FLEA EGGS ARE OFTEN FOUND IN THE VACUUM AND MAY HATCH.

 

IF PET IS INFESTED, TREAT ALL BEDDING, ENTIRE HOUSE, AND YARD AS WELL.
