During the warm months, we do our best as pet parents to keep our dogs and cats protected against the fleas, ticks, and other pests that may want to cause them harm. Unfortunately, many individuals end these tick and flea treatments during the winter months because they feel their pet is temporarily protected against these pests. In reality, fleas and ticks can thrive throughout the year and become a nuisance to your beloved pet inside and outside of your Canal Fulton, Ohio or Canton, Ohio home. For this reason and many others, it’s important to have your pet on a preventative treatment against fleas and ticks throughout the year.
Do you know which of the winter flea treatments or tick treatments available on the market are right for your pet in the Fairlawn, Ohio area? Before investing in one of these treatments for your cat or dog, schedule an appointment with Uniontown Veterinary Clinic near Green, Ohio. With the help of their knowledgeable veterinary staff, you can learn more about the preventative treatments for cats and dogs that are available and determine which is right for your pet based on age and weight! While there, speak to your veterinarian about getting your canine companion started on a preventative heartworm treatment.
