Ticks, Fleas & Hearworms
In addition to the inconvenience associated with infestations, fleas can be responsible for skin conditions such as flea allergy dermatitis in the dog, and milliary dermatitis in the cat. Fleas also transmit other parasites, including tapeworms and cat scratch fever (Bartonella). The control of flea infestations is important to your pet’s health.
Types of Flea and Tick Products
Hundreds of pesticides, repellents, and growth inhibitors are approved or licensed to control fleas and ticks on cats and dogs or in their environment. Most OTC products range from ineffective to unsafe.
