Fleas? What can I do to protect my pet and my family?

Did you know your pet could be at risk for fleas, heartworms, whipworms, hookworms, and roundworms? Preventing flea infestations on your pets and in your home can start with oral medication for your dog or topical medication for your kitty. Fleas eggs can live in your bed, couch, or carpet and 95% of the flea population in your home is made of eggs, pupae, and worm-like larve, the only way to stop infestations and prevent new ones from occurring is to break the flea life cycle. Humans can be affected by some of these parasites as well.
