Use flea and tick preventatives: Consult with your veterinarian to choose the right preventative treatment for your pets. There are various options, including topical treatments, oral medications, and collars.
Vacuum regularly: Fleas and their eggs can hide in carpets and upholstery, so vacuum your home frequently and dispose of the vacuum bag or clean the canister to prevent reinfestation.
Use flea and tick shampoos: Bathing your pets with special shampoos designed to kill fleas and ticks can be effective.
Check your pets for fleas and ticks after they've been outdoors, especially in areas with tall grass, wooded areas, or brush.
If your pet experiences excessive itching, hair loss, or skin irritation due to fleas and ticks, seek professional advice from your veterinarian. They can recommend appropriate treatment options and offer guidance on prevention.
Fleas and ticks can be persistent, so remain diligent in your efforts to control them. Continue using preventive measures throughout the year, even during the off-season.
