May is a good time to begin flea and tick prevention.
Protect your pet from discomfort and the possibility of disease with a good flea and tick preventative. Fleas are annoying and can cause severe dermatitis in pets and their owners. Ticks provide an even greater health risk. Lyme disease, Ehrlichia and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever are some of the tick-borne diseases we see in dogs at Animal General. We recommend only one brand of flea and tick prevention: Frontline®. Used just once per month, this topical treatment works extremely well against fleas and ticks. Dogs who roam wooded or beach areas should also be protected by a Preventic® collar.
