Stay Vigilant in Flea & Tick Season This Year!
As the weather’s getting hotter and hotter, we’re naturally entering Flea & Tick season for dogs & cats, and it’s during this time that we have to take extra precautions with the potential spread of fleas and ticks in our households. This can happen all year round, but it’s during these warmer months that the problem reaches its peak. After all, if pets are left unprotected from fleas, an average of 20 eggs could be laid every day!
But fear not – we at HugglePets have everything you need to tackle the Flea & Tick problem head on this year, and we’ve put them all here in one convenient place to ease your courageous quest of canine cleanliness!
One of the ways to combat fleas and ticks is to use a shampoo that’s designed specifically to combat the problem while fitting into your dog’s bathing routine.
And this shampoo from TropiClean is what we’d recommend as the best way to do that. With added cocoa to soothe irritated skin, plus lemongrass and sesame oil for long lasting effects, this is a sure-fire way to get a head start on protecting your pooch from the little nuisances.
But if you’re looking for something that works over a longer period of time, this Flea & Tick collar from Beaphar is ideal as it slowly releases an insecticide that kills – well – fleas and ticks! It also prevents their return for up to 4 months!
Additionally, it’s waterproof, available in a range of colours, and suitable for dogs above 3 months of age!
Also from Beaphar is the FLEAtec Household Flea Spray, which prevents the development of larvae and eggs in the house, breaking their life cycle and ensuring long-term protection.
It shouldn’t damage any paint or other hard surfaces but allow any sprayed areas to dry before children and pets can occupy them.
To discover any potential pests in your dog’s fur, this comb from Trixie is fitted with rounded metal teeth to easily separate fur and spot fleas & ticks in a pinch.
But if you find your pet already covered in ticks, don’t worry! The dog & cat tick tools from Ancol are not only comfortable to hold and made to a high quality, but are designed with the consideration of the pet’s comfort as it gently removes ticks with ease.
It ensures that the whole tick is removed by locating it on the dog’s skin, trapping it within the small end of the tool and allowing it to be fully detached.
And finally, these Spot-Ons from Beaphar are a way to control fleas and ticks on your dog from 4 to 5 weeks.
The beauty of these is that they contain the strength of veterinary medicine but at an affordable price.
The best way to make it through flea & tick season while keeping your pets happy is to take the necessary precautions with these great products. For any questions, queries, or concerns, contact us on Facebook.
