Protecting Your Pet During Flea and Tick Season


Flea and tick season is here… Do you know which preventative is best for your pet?

“Over-the-counters aren’t as effective because they are so widespread,” says Dr. Little, one of our Merriam Veterinary Care Center vets. She often sees patients who can’t find over-the-counter preventatives that work well.  A common misconception, is that prescribed preventatives aren’t as affordable, Little adds.

When choosing what’s best for your pet, Dr. Little says to think about you and your pet’s lifestyle. Outdoor and camping dogs are better protected with prescribed oral tablets or a topical often repels better than collars.

If you’re always on-the-go, and your pets are typically indoor animals, collars or a topical can give you peace of mind for the season!
