FIGHTING FLEAS AND TICKS
Not only are fleas and ticks a nuisance, they can also cause significant blood loss or anemia in a pet if left untreated. Additionally, these parasites can transmit disease, making it even more important for the industry to help consumers protect their pets from these pests.
Flea and tick products come in a variety of forms, including pills and chews to sprays and food toppers to collars and shampoos. With so many different uses, consumers can choose which is best for their pet.
Pet dealers can play an important role in educating their customers not only about the importance of flea and tick prevention, but also about the options available to them. Products that are strong against pests but are gentle on the dog or cat provide relief without harming the pets we serve.
