It’s one of the most important roles of a pet parent, to make sure our animals are treated for fleas all year round. Now, there are more flea treatment options available than ever, and it can be hard to know which one is right - or how they even work. In this article we will cover the basics of how each flea product does its job and what makes them so good at keeping your pets scratch free.
It’s always important to keep in mind that if your pet has a more severe flea infestation, they may require more than one treatment and a trip to the vet. Some products will only target one portion of the flea life cycle. They may offer immediate relief to your pet or they may break the life cycle of the fleas by targeting eggs and larvae development. Your vet will always be able to provide you with a plan of attack for the best flea treatment for your pet depending on their age and health status.
Always follow the directions provided on your chosen flea treatments and never use dog flea treatment on cats and vice versa.
