FLEAS: DID YOU KNOW?

October 3, 2021

🐾 All flea products are not created equal.
🐾 Each product has a different active ingredient in it.
🐾 A single application (depending on the product) can last from 1 month up to 6 months.
🐾 Products come in the form of liquid application on the back of the neck, or tablet form.
🐾 Fleas will die in different ways/time frames depending on the active ingredient in the product.
🐾 Some flea products also kill gastrointestinal worms.
🐾 Once fleas are in your pet’s environment it can take a further 6 months of regular flea treatment to control the environmental infestation.
🐾 Year- round treatment of all animals in the household will prevent environmental contamination.
