: Fleas and Ticks

Have you noticed how the weather has been the same for the last 6 months or at least it feels that way. Warm days and nights, humidity. It can be a bit uncomfortable for us but the fleas love it. The flea lifecycle in this weather is only three weeks. If you forget a dose of flea control or think oh well its about to get colder and it probably doesn't matter its time to think again.

Ticks are not as bad around here as we do not have the wildlife but you must still be vigilant if heading up or down the coast.

In actual fact if you reduce the flea population in your pets environment when the numbers are lower you are more likely to get control.

So remember year round flea and tick control is best. Give us a ring and our lovely staff will help you decide the right treatment for your dog, cat or rabbit.
