Stop Your Dog’s Flea & Tick Infestation

“The fear of flea and tick infestation can haunt pet-parents all year around,” says Paul Wegman at the BestVetCare.com blog. The everlasting battle against fleas and ticks can be draining because there is a high risk that bugs may move into your home.

Flea and tick infestations can take weeks or months to control. But by taking some precautions, you can prevent them from starting in the first place: your dog.

There are lots of options to deal with a messy flea and tick infestation, but usually topic treatments are greasy and irritating for your pet.

Moreover, as Paul Wegman mentions in his post related to this issue, a major conundrum is to make the dog administer those pills or tablets that would taste miserable and you can say that by the way your dog clearly resists taking it.

Tips to Kill Flea & Tick on Dogs

When your pet comes home, run a flea comb or brush through your dog’s coat before going inside, reducing the number of pests it carries.Do you have a long-haired pet? It's easier for pests to hide there. So consider having your pet shaved down for the summer, making it easier to spot problems.

Remember that flea eggs, larvae, and pupae often live in carpeting or throw rugs. So vacuum at least once a week, and more often if you spot fleas. Also wash your pet’s bedding, crate, and toys in hot water weekly to kill flea and ticks.
