1.- FLEA PREVENTION
After being cooped up during the winter months, your pet is looking forward to some outdoor air and fresh grass. Before you let the animal loose, it is important to realize that your cat or dog is vulnerable to pesky fleas that might fill the warm air. It is important to make sure that your pet is safe from the pests. Following are some helpful flea prevention tips.
1.-Examine the pet and look for fleas or other skin conditions due to allergies
2.- Choosing flea prevention products wisely
Before making the decision between the available treatment options, you need to know what is available. Most pet owners choose between flea drops and flea collars. Flea drops are topical application treatments that are applied to the animal to attack and eliminate fleas. A flea collar is worn around the neck and it works by emitting a gas that repels the fleas, or by releasing medication that is absorbed into the animal’s subcutaneous fat layer. When absorbed, the medication repels and eliminates the fleas.
It is important to remember that flea prevention is not just for the outdoors. In many cases, fleas hide inside the home, where they can lie dormant for months in carpets or upholstered furniture. It is important to vacuum your home weekly to ensure that your pet is safe from the fleas. Pay particular attention to hidden corners, furniture, bedding and other areas that your pet touches.
It’s finally springtime, and if you’re not in a grooming routine already, spring is a great time to start.
