Importance of Flea And Tick Prevention

Flea and tick prevention is essential to proper pet care. Flea and tick infestations do not only make your pet miserable with the itching and scratching, but they can also cause your pet to become seriously sick. Common problems caused by fleas and ticks are tapeworm, anemia and hair loss, just to name a few. Here at Paw Prints Pet Hospital and Veterinary Clinic, we strive to provide your pet with quality and effective pest control.

Our animal hospital is dedicated to the health and well being of your pet, from emergency vet services, routine wellness care, vaccinations and flea and tick infestations. We proudly serve the areas surrounding Essex, from Dundalk and Nottingham to Parkville and Rosedale. Your family pet’s well being and happiness is our number one concern. Pets that are suffering from health problems or pest infestations are not happy pets and therefore the family is unhappy as well.

Flea and tick control begins with prevention. Regular monthly preventatives should be part of any pet wellness plan, whether you bring your pet into our animal clinic or you purchase the medications to use at home. These days, preventatives are easy to apply and are highly effective. The most effective flea and tick control are those that kill the fleas and ticks in all stages of life, leaving nothing to grow and cause problems.

Without proper pest control, your pet can become infested and, in turn, infect your home with fleass. Fleas and ticks can make your pet sick, causing problems beyond incessant itching and skin issues. Problems such as tapeworm and anemia are common results of untreated flea infestations in your pet.

Our staff at the Essex veterinary clinic can provide you with all pertinent information and options in order to allow you to make an educated decision as to what pest control method is best for your pet. A healthy family pet is a happy family pet.
