It’s Flea Season in Arlington!
Texas is a tropical climate for much of the year, so finding effective flea control can be a challenge. If you are having trouble with this, we feel your frustration, and we are here to help! One of the most important things to remember is that environmental infestation can cause what looks like product failure. The monthly topical and oral treatments will kill adult fleas, many within a few hours of the flea coming in contact with your pet, but if new ones are jumping on all the time, you will still see bites, itching, and fleas present. If you are worried that your Advantix, Advantage, Frontline, Trifexis, or Comfortis are not working well enough, be sure to check the house and yard for infestation. Often, a combination of environmental control and monthly prevention will be the solution.
Another very important thing to keep in mind is the safely level of the product you are using. Always check labeling to be sure you are choosing a product designed for your pet – some in particular are not safe for cats or very young animals. When you purchase flea control products, we recommend you choose to buy from our online pharmacy as this will allow us to ensure you get not only a good price for the product and online convenience, but a safe and effective solution for your pet. For this month only, we are also able to offer you a special deal on Bravecto, a flea and tick product that lasts for 3 months and has excellent efficacy! For dogs, the Bravecto is given orally, which eliminates concern about washing off. The product is available for cats in a topical form as well. If you purchase two doses (6 months of prevention for one pet, or 3 months for two pets) from us, we will give you 20% off the total, and then Merck, Bravecto’s manufacturer, will send you a $15 rebate as a special bonus.
