Fleas and Pets
Fleas are much more than an itchy annoyance. They have saliva that many pets are allergic to, and this can cause pets to have massive allergic reactions to their bites. A veterinarian can prescribe a prevention medication that keeps away fleas. This is important not only for the allergy issue but also because fleas can transmit diseases and other parasites to pets. The allergic reactions that pets have can be damaging to their health. Avoiding fleas is important to a pet's overall health, and prevention medication can be highly effective at getting rid of these pests.
Ticks and Pets
When pets get bitten by ticks, there are many dangerous diseases that can be transmitted. Diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease can be transmitted to pets by tick bites. Ticks stay in constant contact with the flesh of pets as they drink from it. This allows various types of bacteria to enter the blood of a pet. This can introduce many serious diseases to pets, and they can be fatal. Getting your pet onto a medication that prevents them is important to their health. It can prevent several bacterial diseases that can ruin the health of your pet.
