Fleas and ticks can cause skin issues and have the potential to transmit harmful diseases to you and your pet.

How can I tell if my dog has fleas or ticks?

First, identify ‘flea dirt’ – small, pepper-like specks that are visible to the naked eye. You can separate the fur to find flea dirt or by using a flea comb. Live adult fleas are somewhat tricky to spy due to how fast they can scurry around on your dog.

How can I prevent fleas and ticks on my dog?

Many different products offer flea and tick prevention. Our friendly staff would love to chat about various products and find the product right for you based on your dog’s lifestyle.
