Flee & tick treatments and your dog

The Australian climate is a perfect environment for flea and tick breeding, which unfortunately means that pet owners must be super vigilante when it comes to protecting their animals from pests and preventing outbreaks from occurring.

Paralysis ticks are especially nasty creatures, and are common causes of death in pets, though it’s important to note that they are not the only ticks that are rampant in Australia. Other ticks, such as the brown dog and cattle tick, are known for carrying diseases that can make dogs extremely unwell.

Fleas on the other hand, though not often deadly, are a terrible burden to deal with when they’ve become an infestation. All it takes is a single untreated flea to create a problem that invades your house and can take up to 4 months to finally eradicate. Though during the flea’s lifecycle, your family will undoubtedly fall victim to their irritating bite.

Therefore it is essential to have a regular schedule for flea and tick treatment with your pet, because skipping even one treatment could reduce your life to unpleasant levels of sanitation for you and your family. Fleas can also assault couches, carpets and bedding and end up as an expensive endeavour as you try to kill off each and every egg.

A regular flea and tick wash combined with frequent flea and tick treatments is the best way to protect against costly and unwanted infestations and potential health risks. It is best to speak to your vet regarding which treatment is best for your pet, though administering the treatment on time is often the issue people face.
