Why is it so important to protect against ticks and fleas?
These tiny parasites hide in pet’s fur and feed on their blood. They make pets itch and can cause nasty diseases. Regular tick and flea protection is important to keep pets healthy.
Did you know that:
- ticks insert their mouthparts into a pet's skin & 'glue' them in? So never try pull a tick out in case it leaves the mouthparts behind, use a tick remover tool if possible.
- fleas act fast! Females can lay eggs on pets 24-36 hours after a blood meal and can lay up to 2000 eggs in their lifetime. This means it's important to kill fleas before they start laying eggs.
Tick and flea infestations can occur on cats all year round, and the best way you can prevent these is with regular treatment.
