Flea and Tick Season is Here

Did you know that in one day a single flea can bite your dog or cat up to 400 times? Did you know that in two months you could have over 3 million fleas living in your home? Did you know that ticks carry numerous diseases including Lyme disease, anemia, Rocky Mountain fever, encephalitis and in the southwestern states even the plague?
Well you do now, so if you have not already treated your companion animal with a preventative, do it! There are numerous products on the market including natural remedies. Products can come in several different delivery systems.. There are collars, sprays, shampoos, topicals, and even pills. Most are administered once a month. Be sure to read the instructions on use very carefully. Never use a product for a dog on a cat or vise versa. Use the appropriate treatment for the weight of your pet..  And remember, not all products are created equal. Some kill only adult fleas. Some do not kill ticks as well as fleas. For more information on product comparisons visit www.peteducation.com and look for fleas and ticks product comparisons. Keep your pets and your home free of fleas and ticks. You will all enjoy the warm spring and summer months a lot more if you do.
