Why You Should Use Flea Pills for Dogs

Ticks and fleas are some of the most common inconveniences afflicting dogs. Fleas and ticks don’t just carry the potential for irritation – they carry potentially harmful diseases, too. Your pet’s quality of life is your primary concern, and eradicating these parasites using flea and tick pills for dogs allows you to keep your dog happy, healthy, and carefree. Flea and tick pills for dogs play an important role in caring for your canine companion.

Many flea and tick treatment options are safe for very young puppies. Dogs of all ages are susceptible to these parasites, so it’s important to treat your puppy as soon as they’re old enough (based on the treatment option you choose). Give your puppy the best start with flea pills for puppies.

Fleas and ticks are far more difficult to treat than they are to prevent. With all the high-quality, effective treatment options available today, it’s easy to find an option that works well for your dog!

Benefits of Flea and Tick Pills for Dogs

Your dog’s environment is likely full of fleas and ticks. Ticks live all over the United States and are active all year long. Some can even survive freezing temperatures. Adult fleas find their way to your dog, laying their eggs and causing an infestation to begin and intensify quickly. Some dogs are allergic to fleas, posing even more problems when infestations arise. Ticks can attach to your pet, often carrying harmful diseases.

While it might be tempting to treat your dog only during certain times of the year, dogs should be treated for fleas and ticks year-round. This offers your dog the best chance of avoiding disease and infestation. Allivet offers many great options for flea and tick medication.

Other Actions to Take

Beyond choosing the appropriate flea and tick treatment such as topical ointments and flea shampoos, you should take action to prevent these parasites. Maintaining treatment with the medication of your choice is the most important step, but other steps can be taken to make fleas and ticks a thing of the past.

You should regularly examine your dog for fleas and ticks. A flea comb is a useful way to check your dog for flea infestations, and a good, close check of your dog’s skin is excellent for ensuring that no ticks have found a home on your precious pup. If your pet is exhibiting signs of an infestation, such as hair loss, tiny black spots, or scratching, it may be time to re-evaluate your treatment regimen.

Proper yard maintenance, including cutting the grass regularly and keeping trees and bushes groomed, can be an effective step in preventing fleas and ticks in your dog's outdoor environment. These parasites seek hiding places, and minimizing these can be a surprisingly helpful way to keep the pests away. Fencing your yard can keep feral animals away, which are known carriers of disease-ridden parasites.

There are a few ways to reduce the occurrence of infestation inside the home as well. Frequent vacuuming can cut back on fleas and ticks, especially when you focus on hidden areas like underneath furniture, baseboards, and other less-traveled areas. Change bags often. You may even find it helpful to place a flea collar inside the bag or canister to kill fleas collected inside, making it impossible for them to escape and re-infest. Your car could also follow these same guidelines if your dog is a frequent passenger. Wash your pet’s bedding, toys, and other surfaces in hot water to kill and prevent infestation.

These measures can improve your own quality of life, as well as that of your dog. Prevention is key, but if you find yourself with a parasite problem, don’t panic! Simply take proactive steps to eradicate the problem, then be diligent about preventing re-infestation. Fleas and ticks can soon be a distant memory!
