Flea Control Application

It’s still summer! Does your furry friend have flea and other parasite protection? This is the time of year it is needed the most. Fleas especially love warm and humid weather and an infestation can easily get out of control. Almost all flea control products, whether they are topical or oral, are to be administered monthly.

Don’t forget to apply topical products properly. Products such as our SimpleGuard, or Advantage and Frontline need to applied on the skin for it to work best. We love the fine tipped applicator of SimpleGuard–it allows you to really cut through your pet’s coat and apply it to the skin.

Remember, all flea control products work best when applied correctly and regularly.
