Every pet owner wants to safeguard their pets against threats posed by fleas and ticks. If adequate measures are not taken to prevent these harmful pests, then your pet may be affected. At Amigo Animal Hospital, we understand the special bond that exists between you and your pet. If you are a pet parent residing in Westminster, Seal Beach, or Huntington Beach, look no further for a reliable animal hospital that can meet all of your pet's healthcare needs. Our veterinary services are exceptional and reflect the high level of professionalism displayed by our staff.
Fleas and ticks are known to survive better in warm temperatures. This explains why pet owners in warmer areas use a lot of resources in dealing with fleas and ticks compared to those in places with freezing temperatures. Under freezing temperatures, these pests are either killed or remain dormant until the warm weather returns. Even though fleas are not as dangerous to humans as they are to pets, we encourage you to do away with them the moment you detect their presence in your home.
Make flea and tick prevention a part of your pet’s healthcare just like vaccinations for various diseases. Vaccinations for cats and dogs guard against diseases such as the following:
- Canine parvovirus
- Canine Distemper
- Kennel cough
- Canine Hepatitis
Other Preventative Measures You Can Take
Make your pet lie on a bright piece of cloth and run a flea comb in its fur. Flea dirt looks like dried blood and will be visible on the bright piece of cloth. Collect them carefully and dispose of them.
Vacuuming is one of the best preventive measures for controlling fleas and ticks. The vacuum sucks the pests or their eggs before they pry on the pets. Home furnishings like carpets, rugs, upholstered furniture, pillows, and bedding for your dog should all be vacuumed frequently.
