5 Ways to Prepare Your Pet For Flea and Tick Season



Summers are here and so are the nasty fleas and ticks. Parasitic activities increase as they get warmth and appropriate temperature to breed. Thus, summers bring a plethora of diseases along with it. Thus, it is important to pay heed to the unwanted parasites that emerge and become active in prickly heat causing trouble to our naive pets.

Fleas and ticks especially, cause horrendous diseases in our pets, like - tapeworm infection, flea allergy dermatitis, Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Although most of them are curable, some of them like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can prove to be life-threatening for our pets. Thus, in order to prevent summer diseases in dogs and cats, one must take precautionary measures well in advance. If you are unaware of how to save your pet and house from these diseases, here are 5 ways to do that.

Use Flea and Tick Preventatives

No matter what you do to kill parasites, once they are established in your house it is hard to get rid of them. Therefore, it is imperative to use preventatives in advance so that the parasites are unable to flourish, lay eggs inside the house and the surroundings which will further create new infestations. Products like Frontline Plus, Advantage, K9 Advantix etc are some of the best known monthly flea and tick treatments which can help combat the future parasitic ailments.

Clean Your House

Weekly vacuuming and washing of beds, linens, and upholstery must be a part of your regular chore. If not, at least you must follow it weekly.  Flea eggs can live in the surroundings for up to 4 weeks and may hatch as and when they get the proper environment. So, to make sure re-infestation doesn’t happen, it is essential to keep the house clean as much as possible. Dog bed, sheets, blankets, and clothes must be regularly washed without fail. Make use of household flea and tick sprays that are easy to use and give enough protection to eliminate any existing parasite.

Maintain The Yard

Fleas and ticks love to snuggle up in the moist and warm environment which they usually get in yards. Tall grass makes the condition even more cozy and liveable. Dirty yards also attract rodents that carry fleas and ticks thus in order to avoid infestation to sprawl in your yard, maintenance is necessary. Keep the grass trimmed all the times, remove any dead plants and shovel all the leaves lying on the ground. Use chemicals like rodenticides, etc in order to stop the infestation.

Make Use Of Flea and Tick Shampoos

There are a variety of shampoos and conditioners available in the market that comes with antiparasitic and antimicrobial properties. Such products not just eliminate the parasites but also help improve the skin and hair of pets, thus using one of these is nothing but an advantage.

Collar and Sprays For Outdoor Trip 

You may want to visit dog parks or may simply go running with your pooch but a single visit to public places can turn into a nightmare for you and your dog. Reason being, dog parks and other public places can be breeding grounds for these parasites. Thus, a single visit can put you in a mess.  In order to avoid this situation and prevent your pet from bringing infestation inside the house, make sure he is sprayed with parasitic spray or must wear flea and tick preventive collar like Seresto collar or Kiltix collar.

Flea and tick season is, unfortunately, the one when you like to go out and have fun i.e. summers. However, fret not. Proper precautionary measures and care when taken in advance can help you spend your summer with your pet cheerfully. So, in order to spend great summers and not to get bogged down by these horrible creatures, act now, and save you and your pet from disappointment and unnecessary trouble that comes along.
