The Beginners Guide To Tips (Finding The Starting Point)

How to Apply Effective and Safe Flea Treatment

Your pet is most likely on a monthly flea and tick prevention habit. As opposed to what a lot of owners think, even indoor pets should be placed on a preventive routine. Even on a pet who hates to sit still, flea medication shouldn’t be too difficult to apply. But there are a few tips that can help you with the task. First off, before giving your pet any type of medication, be sure to read and follow the directions to the letter! If your pet is sick or pregnant, get your vet’s clearance before you apply the medicine. If your vet is not available, then talk to the product’s manufacturer. Pets with compromised immune systems must be treated with extra care.

When dealing with medication, always keep product and the box or label together. Many pet owners buy flea medications good for six months so that they don’t need to go back to the vet office on a monthly. And that is perfectly okay! But make sure to keep the entire supply in the box, so in case of an emergency, or if you ever have questions, you can simply refer to the label.

It is somewhat easier to use medication on a dog than on a cat; dogs wouldn’t normally fuss about it. However, a dog tends to roll around more than a cat, so if the medication hasn’t fully been absorbed, it may not be fully effective. That’s why before bedtime is the best time to give your dog flea medication. He should be less active at this time. Most likely, the manufacturer will include some recommendations on the label. Again, you should spend time reading these and other directions, not only to ensure your pet’s safety, but also to get the full effect of the mediation.
Why People Think Animals Are A Good Idea

If you’re sure you’re doing everything as instructed but the fleas are still there, then you may have to take a step further than your pet. Look around for signs of flea infestations in your house and at your hard. After apply the medication, vacuum the entire area to get rid of the fleas or at least control their number. Speak to your vet and ask for advice about killing fleas in your home. If nothing works, call a pest control company.
