Question of the week: Does my pet need a flea preventative year round?

As temperatures drop in wintertime many folks think that “flea season,” is over. Unfortunately, fleas don’t have an off-season and are active all year round. Fleas are incredibly resilient little organisms. It may be chilly outdoors, but fleas and their eggs are perfectly happy to co-exist with us indoors where it remains cozy and warm.

It’s important to remember that fleas don’t just make your pets (and you) itch, but are also carriers of parasites and disease. Additionally, a bad flea infestation can cause anemia in your pets.

Reeling in a bad flea infestation can involve a lot of time and money. Once an infestation is full-blown you need more than a flea preventative to get rid of it. A much better option is the minor inconvenience of keeping you and your pet protected all year round.
