Fleas are a nuisance to not only your pets but your family as well. They can cause several diseases. The best way to handle fleas on your pets and in your home is to prevent them from spreading. There are many easy ways of doing so and they should become part of your pet caring routine. Here we’ll look into these flea treatments.
There are some ways to prevent fleas from running rapidly on your pets and, eventually, in your home. There are Spot-On treatments, Oral Medications, and even flea-repellent collars. The best thing to do is to speak to your vet to find out what the best prevention treatment is best for your pet. Regardless of which one they suggest, you mustn’t overdo it i.e. use oral medications and spot-on treatments at the same time. It is best to stick to one type of treatment and use it constantly. Plus, collars are not a treatment; they are a supplementary prevention tool along with your main source of treatment.
Brush Your Pet Regularly
However, if your pet does end up with fleas then you should jump into action straight away. Do not wait for them to spread throughout your home and become an infestation. As soon as you notice that your pet is scratching more than usual it is best to start your treatment for fleas and ticks right away. Another way to know if fleas are on your pet is by brushing them regularly. Using a fine comb rinsed in hot soapy water between each stroke, you can drown the fleas before they call their friends to the party. Starting before they spread is the best way to control and kill the buggers. If you are too late it’s time to call Gunter Pest & lawn for your pest control needs.
Getting Rid Of Pests For Good
There are many ways that you can get to the fleas before they get to you. The first thing is to ask your vet about a treatment plan. They could suggest many options from anti-flea shampoos to medications and flea bombs, etc. Regardless of what the treatment is, it is important to follow the instructions exactly. Going big is not better; it can hurt your pet. Treatments are designed with the type and weight of your pet in mind so doing too much can do more harm to them.
