Fleas and Ticks

Fleas and ticks can be a real problem for pet owners.  They can make your dog or cat extremely itchy and uncomfortable, driving you and your pet crazy!!  They can also cause medical complications such as: Tape Worm, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis.  Tape Worm can be contracted by ingesting a flea.  If your dog or cat is scratching and biting an itchy bite and swallows a flea caring tape worm, now your loved one has tape worm.  The other three (Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis) are all tick born diseases, which would be contracted through a tick bite.

The GOOD news is that all of these diseases are very easily preventable with just one simple product.  I highly recommend Frontline Plus!  It really WORKS!!  I live close to a wooded area that has plenty of ticks.  My husband enjoys long walks in the woods with our dogs.  I just took our black lab to the vet last month and when he ran the test to see if any diseases were present, there was not a trace of anything!  He said to me, “You must have a really good flea and tick preventative!”  So our girl is living proof that it works!  I have researched this product and personally know vets that endorse it.  I feel that this is the safest most effective preventative out there.

The adult tick is reddish-brown and usually attaches around the ears or between a dog’s toes. This tick rarely bites people, but it can carry serious diseases that affect dogs, such as ehrlichiosis.
