Flea Prevention

What do I do for fleas (and ticks)?

1. Does your pet have fleas now, or do you just want to prevent a problem?

2. Is your pet exposed to environments where it at risk to pick up new fleas?

3. Do you think your pet is at risk for ticks also?

4. Be sure you treat every pet in the house
