Spring Time is Flea Time

dog skin problemsNew Mexico is a warm enough climate that our fleas never go completely away, at least not in Los Lunas. However, Spring is the time of year that fleas are in full force. All the winter eggs are hatching and waiting to jump on your pet. Plus as the weather gets warmer our pets want to be outside a lot more, rolling around in that flea infested sand.

When it comes to flea and tick control, prevention is the best medicine. Thankfully the medicine for treatment and prevention are the same medicine. Frontline Flea and Tick is a great way to prevent your pet from getting a flea infestation, but if they already have those nasty biting little buggers on them, it will also kill them. Flea treatment is a once a month treatment that you put on your pet’s coat. It doesn’t hurt, sting, or cause any discomfort what so ever.



The harder part of a flea infestation on your pet is that means that you likely have them in your home. If your dog or cat brings in fleas, keep them in a secluded area until you can get them treated. Any place they have slept or laid down will need to be thoroughly washed and cleaned. We recommend laundering all their pet beds and blanket. You should wash all the sheets on your beds and vacuum your couch and floors. If you are having trouble containing the fleas, we suggest you call a local pet control company to come and spray your house. As long as they are in your house, they will bit you and your pet and they will continue to re-infest.

Get your cat and dog ready for Spring. Bring them down to Vetco in Los Lunas for their Frontline Flea and Tick treatment. If you are concerned about flea bites on your pet, make sure to talk to our vet.
