Warm weather means more outdoor fun… and more fleas & ticks

Fleas and ticks are most prevalent during summer months because they thrive on warm weather and high humidity. Protect your pets this summer! Your yard and home may be a desirable habitat for these insects without you even knowing. To protect your pet from potential diseases, here are a few things you can do:

OUTSIDE YOUR HOME

  • Keep your grass trimmed.
  • Trim bushes and trees with low-hanging branches to reduce shaded areas.
  • Consider treating your yard with an outdoor flea treatment.

ON YOUR PETS

  • Keep your pet clean and well-groomed.
  • If fleas are an issue, consider using a shampoo that kills fleas.
  • Use a flea and tick preventative medication.
