Flea & Tick Prevention: Keeping Your Pets Safe from Fleas & Ticks

Fleas and ticks are troublesome parasites that could easily attach themselves onto your pet's body. It is extremely important to provide your pet with parasite prevention so these insects do not cause medical difficulties for your cat or dog. A visit to Camelback Animal Clinic in Phoenix to meet with our veterinarian can help when prevention options or treatment is needed. Here are some ways you can keep your pet safe from fleas and ticks.

Take Care of Your Home and Property

If your pet contracts fleas or ticks, removing them from your home is necessary so your pet does not become infected again after they receive treatment. Wash all of your pet's bedding regularly in hot water to remove eggs, larvae, or insects. Vacuum carpets and sweep hardwood floors regularly as well. Outdoors, treat your lawn with a pest control agent and keep grass cut to reduce the insect population.

Do Routine Checks of Your Pet's Fur

After your pet goes outside, it is best to take a look at their skin for any signs of parasites. Part your pet's fur and look for small specks of black or moving insects on your pet's body. If any are noticed, use a flea comb to remove them. Ticks can be removed with help from a pair of tweezers. Be sure to provide your pet with proper shampooing sessions to help reduce the chance of a parasite infestation as well.

See Our Vet for Exams and Prevention Medication

Bring your pet to our veterinarian for routine examinations so any flea or tick problems are handled promptly. Our vet will take a look at your pet's skin and provide you with medication to treat it if necessary. Flea and tick medication can also be administered to treat your pet for existing parasites and keep future infestations from occurring.
