To easily, comprehensively control fleas and ticks, combine topical and environmental treatments.
Protect your pet…
First, apply a topical (on-the-skin) flea and tick preventative on your dog. We recommend K9 Advantix II and use it on our own dogs. K9 Advantix II kills ALL flea life stages and also repels and kills ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. If you’d rather not use a monthly preventative, try a Seresto Flea & Tick Collar for 8 months of continuous control.
then protect your home
Your home is constantly at risk for flea and tick infestation. Wild animals and stray cats and dogs roaming your property bring fleas and ticks with them. These pests can also hitchhike into your house on your pet or your pant leg. A single female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day. Eggs roll off your pet and quickly hatch into larvae that hide in carpets, upholstery, and crevices where they spin cocoons and then hatch into biting adults ready to lay more eggs and continue the cycle. In addition to biting your pets, fleas bite people too, so protecting your home protects you. Ticks, while less common indoors, can also become established and feed on pets and people, transmitting dangerous diseases like Lyme Disease and Ehrlichiosis.
