When flea and tick season is on the horizon, our veterinarian and team of technicians at the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County can help keep your dogs and cats flea and tick free. With proper preventative pet care, your pet can enjoy every season in Ferndale and the surrounding areas to the fullest without dealing with an unhealthy and aggravating pest infestation.
Benefits of Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs and Cats
Throughout the Ferndale, Liberty, and Monticello areas, fleas and ticks converge and can easily become problematic for domestic pets. These pests can infiltrate an area via infested stray dogs and cats and local wildlife that have accessed your yard. With a plan of action in place from the vet, your pet can feel good and avoid being stressed by biting pests.
When pets have a flea and tick issue, it can result in a variety of issues, such as itching, flaky skin, redness, scratching, scabs, allergic reactions, infections, aggravated hot spots, and hair loss. When a preventative treatment is applied, the risk of your pet experiencing these conditions is lessened. Flea medicine also works as a preventative for tapeworms, which are the result of pets ingesting fleas. When used against ticks, the medicine reduces the risk of Lyme disease, anaplasmosis and ehrlichia. For pet parents, maintaining a flea and tick regimen for pets reduces the possibility of an infestation in the home.
