Oh “Bother”!

Flea and Tick Prevention - El Dorado Animal Clinic

Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” He was probably talking about fleas and ticks because nowhere does this ring more true than making sure to have a good flea and tick preventive program in place.

Fleas and ticks are external parasites that can cause extreme discomfort for your pet and your pocketbook if you’re not pre-treating for them and they are much cheaper to control before they become a problem.

  •  Safe, easy-to-administer products can prevent trips to see us for severe allergic reactions, hot spots and excessive scratching.
  •  Preventive care can keep you from having to go to the doctor for Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tapeworm and bacterial diseases that these pests can pass on to humans.
  •  Once they’re on your pet, they’re in your home. Female fleas can lay 20 to 50 eggs every day. A good preventive program can save you the expense of having to bomb your house or seek professional extermination services.

Year-round protection is the best method of prevention. We can design a specific treatment program for your pet–call us today!
