Flea And Tick Prevention

Flea & Tick Prevention

Advice from Our Elkins Park Veterinarians

Protect your pet and family from flea and tick infestations and the serious, sometimes fatal, infectious diseases that can be transmitted by them. Fleas and ticks are easy to prevent, and Elkins Park Veterinary Hospital can help. Each of our products is medically approved, safe, and guaranteed to help protect your family. We recommend purchasing all your preventative flea and tick products through your veterinarian because the products are guaranteed and we back up our products.

Where & When Can My Pet Get Fleas & Ticks?

Dogs and cats can get fleas and ticks in a variety of places — whether they go outside or not. Other animals (or even humans) can bring fleas and ticks into your home. And anytime your pet is outside, they are at risk. Wildlife such as squirrels, rabbits, and raccoons all carry fleas and ticks. Fleas and ticks can live outside year-round, but the worst times of the year are spring and fall.

How & When Should I Prevent Fleas & Ticks?

Because fleas and ticks can be found outside all year long, it is important that your pet is always protected. If you see signs of fleas or ticks on your pet, start treatment immediately. We offer a series of medically-approved, easy-to-use products that are guaranteed to protect your pet.
