Fleas and ticks carry diseases that can seriously harm dogs and cats. Luckily, prevention is easy with the help of a Banfield veterinarian. We encourage year-round flea and tick prevention based on a pet’s lifestyle, health and home environment – throughout your pet’s life.
Fleas and ticks love to make themselves at home in your house. They might be there even when you can’t see them. Many pet owners think they only need to worry about these pests in seasonal or warm weather, but thanks to our warm winter accommodations, both fleas and ticks can be active year-round.
Imagine you get home from a long day only to realize -- while cuddling them -- that your pet has fleas! You immediately worry about your pet's health and also wonder where else these pesky parasites have settled.
