PetCareRX Tip:Is it really important to have my pet treated for fleas and ticks as quickly as possible?
Absolutely. Fleas and ticks have carried terrible diseases throughout history and still do to this day. From the Black Death in Europe to Lyme Disease in New England, you and your family could be threatened if your pet is carrying fleas and ticks.
Furthermore, even if you yourself might not feel the effects of the pesky bugs, they can have a severe negative impact on the health and well-being of your pet over time. With numerous effective flea and tick medications such as Frontline Plus, Advantage Flea Killer for Dogs, and Advantage for Cats available, there really is no excuse not to start treating your animal immediately. Make sure you read the directions on the label and apply the medications only as directed.
