Why is continued flea and tick prevention important in the colder months?
We recommend extending your pet's flea and tick preventative all year round for the following reasons:
- During winter months we can have those off warm days where the fleas and ticks may awaken and attack your pets.
- Prevention of tape worms, which can be caused by fleas being ingested by your pet.
- Prevention of Lyme disease. Massachusetts is rampant with Lyme disease which is transmitted by ticks.
