Fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, stable flies, and lice don’t just cause irritation, distress and discomfort for your pet. Some of these bothersome parasites can also transmit serious diseases.
Protecting your dog is important
Parasites are an ever-increasing concern in Canada. Changes in climate, wildlife migration and people vacationing with their fur babies have made dogs more vulnerable to bites from nasty parasites and the potentially deadly diseases they can transmit.
That’s why it’s important to take action before you start to see evidence of parasites. Ask your veterinarian or local pet store associate for parasite protection that works through contact to protect your dog.
Not all products work the same
Unlike chewable flea and tick products and some other topical treatments, Advantage®II for dogs, and K9 Advantix®II topical treatments kill through contact. The parasites don’t need to bite to die. Why is this important? Parasites that don’t bite can’t transmit diseases.
If your pet has fleas, you have fleas
Fleas can be annoying for both you and your pet. If just one flea enters your home, it can be enough to start a flea infestation. It is important to treat your dog with a product like Advantage®II, every month, to effectively kill fleas and eliminate a flea infestation. For more information on fleas, click here.
